Dragon Chests can be harvested or spawned from many objects present in the Dragon world. They can also be found under Evil Fog, or offered as a reward for certain levels. In camp, they are locked and need to be opened with gems.

Depending on the object they were harvested from, they can look different and contain different objects. They follow the following merge chain:

  1. Dragon Egg Chest
  2. Radiant Egg Chest
  3. Dragon Nest Vault
  4. HUGE Nest Vault

Super and mega nest vaults can also be obtained but they aren't part of a merge chain.

Merging Dragon Chests Edit

Rarity Edit

The rarity of chests increases when merging dragon egg chests and when merging dragon nest vaults.

So merging three uncommon Dragon Egg Chests will produce a rare Radiant Egg Chest, merging three rare Radiant Egg Chests will produce a rare Dragon Nest Vault and merging three rare Dragon Nest Vaults will produce an epic Dragon Nest Vault.

The current belief is that the type (and therefore contents and price) of merged chests depends on the chest that you dragged and dropped when merging, so you can exploit this if you don't have enough chests of the right type (but this is irrelevant if you're after eggs because you don't want to merge in the first place - see below).

Chest Visuals Edit

As of an update chests can now have one of 4 visuals. Only locked chests with the same appearance can be merged but their type and contents can vary.

Type of Egg Chests (Cost in Gems) Edit

*This list may be incomplete*

Chests have different types based on their contents (they are generally reffered to by their egg/nest type), which is determined by where they were harvested from.

Maximizing Value Edit

*WARNING - MATH* If math isn't your thing skip to the end (Conclusion) to see the most efficient/recommended way to open chests.

Contents of Chests Edit

Quantity of Eggs Contained in Chests

Relative quantity of eggs contained in different chests

Dragon eggs are the main reason for opening chests, and chests that have been merged contain a higher no. of eggs. Dragon Egg Chests contain 1-2 eggs, Radiant Egg Chests contain 4 eggs, Dragon Nest Vaults contain 1 nest (equivalent to 3-7 eggs) and Huge Nest Vaults contain 3 nests (equivalent to 9-21 eggs). In order to maximize the number of eggs you end up with you have to take into account the trade-off between the number of chests used to merge, the no. eggs contained within different levels of chests and luck (when the possible number of eggs are within a range).

The graph to the left shows the relative number of eggs contained within different chests, taking into account the number of eggs contained in an equivalent amount of merged/un-merged chests. as you can see it is more worthwhile to open egg chests than to merge them and open the vaults. However you also have to consider the relative cost of the chests.

Cost of Eggs Edit

Chests are split into 6 price bands

Cost (Gems)
Price Band Dragon Egg Radiant Egg Dragon Nest Huge Nest
1 9 27 45 125
2 11 33 55 135
3 12 36 60 150
4 17 51 85 210
5 23 69 115 260
6 30 120 150 450
Costs of Eggs Contained in Chests

If you take into account the equivalent number of Dragon egg chests you can compare the relative cost of the eggs contained in the different chests. As you can see in the graph to the left, dragon egg chests have the most variance but, on average are the most cost effective and can potentially be the lead to the best possible outcome.

You do, however, have to consider that many of the dragon eggs contained in chests are available from the store for coins. These include:

*Sun dragons can also be bought but not for coins

Considering that gems are a much more difficult currency to obtain than coins and are also a paid currency, dragon chests are not the best way to obtain these dragons.

Conclusion Edit

It is recommended to only keep/open chests containing the following dragon types:

*Note* Cosmos dragons can also be obtained from repeating levels if you prefer not to use gems

As well as chests containing mystery eggs (ruby or sapphire variety - not tanzanite) obtained from dragon trees or, alternatively, in Super or Mega Nest Vaults.

Cosmos dragons chests are the only purple padded chest in price band 2, tribal dragon chests are the only stone chests in price band 3 and dragon tree chests are the only wooden chests in price band 5 (*Disclaimer* this is according to the information on the rest of this page which is incomplete), however for the other chest types you will need to manually watch what source it comes from and separate it. Where possible open only Egg Chests, preferably Dragon Egg Chests. Doing this will maximize the value you recieve for spending gems to open chest.

Note: If your goal is to obtain mi-high level items rather than eggs then i suggest picking your source and merging chests from it into the highest possible level and then opening that.

Notes Edit

  • In general: Dragon Egg Chest contains 1 dragon egg of the designated type, Radiant Egg Chest contains up to 4 dragon eggs of the designated type, Dragon Nest Vault contains 1 dragon egg nest of the designated type, HUGE Nest Vault contains 3 dragon egg nests of the designated type.
  • The different incidental objects increase in value as the chests increase in size.
  • The same types of locked dragon chests can be merged together, even if they are from different sources. When this happens, contents of the chest/vault convert to whichever chest was used to trigger the merge.  
  • It seems silly that the cost-value of eggs actually dissuades you from merging, which is the entire premise of the game. Maybe they thought we cared more about the incidentals? 
  • It actually costs more to open Radiant egg chests than it does to open the equivalent number of Dragon egg chests even if you merge by 5. For vaults it's the opposite, it costs more to open the equivalent number of dragon egg chests than it does to open vaults.
