GENERAL

You can now summon a chest to you. Right-click the chest and choose summon or use the /summon_chest command. If you have no chest to target, the /summon_chest command will give you a list of chests that you can summon to you.

Trackback from your site.

    This is awesome! I used the /Summon_Chest command and it gave me a choice of two chests I could summon to me.

    1.) 34 B

    2.) 36 DD

    Bunji, your amazing!

    This comes in very handy for those times the chests get stuck in the walls. I’ve wanted something like this for a long time. :)

    Wouldn’t it be weird if you could summon someone else’s chest in a contested area? hehe, oh the fun!!! ;) I guess you can only summon chests that you have ownership of though.

    I can see the uses for this, but yet again, something completely pointless. I’ll have the 36DD by the way!

      Pointless unless you are a player that this has happened to.

      Or the Customer Service rep who has to spend 20 minutes logging the issue, logging into the game, looking at the chest, looking at the mob, making sure you are the person who killed it and are entitled to its contents, giving you the items in your mail, closing the ticket, and filing the report.

    My point was after nearly 9 years of playing, thousands of chests looted, and hundered of raids, its only ever happened once, im sure there would be things that they could fix and put time and effort into, that would be much more use than a chest summoning command.

    @ what distance can you summon a chest? I heard it isn’t that far away or not LOS?

    I think its maybe 10 meters? (wish we had a %distance variable to display distance to target) Its a good distance, but not ranged attack far.

    This is also great for times when you 1-shot a mob, hear a chest “drop”, and cant find it for the life of you. Or when you kill something from a platform, like over water (think the lily pads in Chelsith). Or the flying aviaks in Butcherblock (or anywhere in sky zones), that tended to die in mid air.
