Chests are one of the central elements to Merge Dragons, and come in many shapes and forms. For more information on the particular Chest types mentioned here, please use the links to navigate to their individual pages.
These Chests are unique in that only one is automatically obtained upon completion of a Level; only three locked versions can be stored in a Chest Room at a time; and the player must wait a set amount of time (or pay Dragon Gems) to unlock one depending on its quality (Bronze, Silver or Golden) and size (Normal or Large). Bountiful Chests also have three tiers, and will change appearance and quality of the loot based on the current number of land tiles healed by the player in Camp—this number may be checked at any time from the Map when tapping the Camp icon.
Buy Menu Chests
The Buy Menu allows for the purchase of multiple different Chests using Stone Bricks as currency. Buy Menu Chests contain items from different Merge Chains and may be merged into level 2 Chests that contain slightly better loot. Most of level 1 Chests are also available for free as a reward for completing a Level a certain number of times.
The purchasable Chests include the following variations:
- Moon Chest, merge for Phobos Chest (Life Flowers, Fruit Trees)
- Golden Chest (not to be mistaken for the Bountiful Golden Chest), merge for Solid Gold Chest (Living Stones, Brambles, Spooky Trees)
- Occult Chest, merge for Summoned Chest (Hills, Bushes, Wood)
- Dangerous Chest, merge for Chest of Beasts (Mushrooms, Water, Grass)
- Pearlescent Chest, merge for Spectral Chest (Dragon Trees, Prism Flowers)
Daily Treasure Chest (retired)
Every 23 hours the player may collect a Daily Treasure Chest from the dedicated island in the Camp. Upon collecting, the counter will reset and a new 23 hour cycle will begin. There are 49 unique Chests, and upon collection of the 49th, this cycle, too, will start over. Daily Treasure Chests are the main source of Super Egg Fragments.
Note: As of Version 6.7.0 (18th of August 2021) Daily Treasure Chest is permanently replaced with Daily Rewards.
Dragon Chests contain different Dragon Eggs/Nests and Merge Chain items depending on what they are obtained from. There're four main types of Dragon Chests: Wooden, Stone, Red Padded and Purple Padded Chests. Common for all Dragon Chests is that the only way to open them within Camp is by spending Dragon Gems. Within Levels they may be opened at no cost.
Level 1 Dragon Egg Chests, level 2 Radiant Egg Chests and level 3 Dragon Nest Vaults are primarily gained through harvesting items, healing Dead Land in the Camp and tapping Goal Stars. Treasure Chests may also contain one or more Egg Chests/Nest Vaults. Level 4 Huge Nest Vaults may only be created through merging.
To distinguish between two Dragon Chests of the same type and level you need to know where they came from and to check their price.
For costs and loot of all variants, refer to the tables in the Dragon Chests page.
Super Nest Vault/Mega Nest Vault
Super Nest Vault and Mega Nest Vault are two variations of the Dragon Chests. As with the standard Dragon Chests, these may only be opened by spending Gems. However, they will only appear within the Camp, and are exceedingly rare. More Super/Mega Nest Vaults may be created through very specific means; please see their respective pages for more information.
Every Event features Event-specific Chests, that usually contain a number of Event Point Items (like Magic Moon Fruits), Limited Event Harvestables (like Meteorites), some Life Orbs and Magic Coins. They will only appear within the Event and cannot be brought outside of the Event's level.

Kala's Rucksack is rewarded for completing daily Kala's trade. It mainly contains Dragon Eggs/Nests, but some trades are only rewarded with certain Merge Chain items (for example, Stone Bricks trades are rewarded with Life Orbs, Magic Coins - with Life Flowers etc.)
Depending on bonus chance of the trade, the Kala's Bonus Rucksack may also be awarded, which contains loot similar to Kala's Rucksack contents.
Treasure Chests may be collected by multiple different methods including tapping Goal Stars, merging items, from Level Rewards, and harvested by Dragons. They contain Life Orbs, Life Flowers, Magic Coins, Goal Stars (Giant Treasure Chest only) and Dragon Chests. In Levels they may also contain Dragon Eggs.
Treasure Chests may be merged multiple times to gain progressively better and better rewards, and also function as one of the main sources of Dragon Chests. They are free to obtain and open, and may sometimes be obtained in very large quantities by enterprising Dragons.
Treasure Chests include the following 7 levels:
- Ordinary Treasure Chest
- Nice Treasure Chest
- Chained Treasure Chest
- Sunken Chest

Premium Loot Cache
Level 1 Trophy Chests may be obtained by tapping Event Trophies every 10 hours spent in the Camp, and then merged to level 2. When tapped, Trophy Chests will turn either into a level 3-4 Dragon Tree or into a level 5-6 Life Orb. Level 2 Trophy Chests also have a 10% chance of turning into an Event Dragon Egg.
