    I should mention the timer (2 minutes?) that causes all chests/sacks/barrels/crates to be empty when you have just entered a zone. This used to be a big problem with bandit encounters, but they must have specifically overridden it there. This is to prevent abuse like constantly looting boxes near an entrance, or forcing a new instance.

    In addition to empty chests having to go, chests whose contents are only ever 12-13 gold need to go as well.

    A very good point! However, a fairly simple way to combat abuse would be that it keeps track of WHO looted it, and it will never let that same person loot the chest more than 1 time every 60 minutes or something. If that happened, then it is pretty much solved.

    I’ve never found anything of much value in a chest. It’s usually some gem chips, a recall/teleport scroll, a few gold, some materials, etc. I see no problem in newbies getting some loot from them.
