I saw a post earlier about a person asking about the % rates of each chest that you earn from battles. A couple people suggested it was % (ex: magic 1%, gold 25%, silver 74% etc)
Good theory, but NOT the case. It is based on a chest order, or a cycle. When the cycle goes through, it restarts again. This is not a theory, it is proven. I was exploring the game files and found the chest order cycle. The cycle starts when you finish opening up the fixed chests at the beginning of the game. Here it is below: http://pastebin.com/rkU51EBR
I pasted it in a pastebin because it is way too long for this post. If you look at the top, “MainCycle” is when the cycle starts. Everything before that are fixed chests at the beginning. Theoretically, there are 3 magic chests in the 240 chest cycle, so yes, that guys % prediction of 1% is not too far off. 3/240 = 1.25% chance of magical chest.
Just clearing it up 🙂 this chest order is useful to see what chest you’ll be getting next! (the only practical way of taking note of this is waiting til you get a magical chest and start taking note of it lol)
Hope it helped!
