Gold Sturdy Pyxis are unlocked via a number guessing game similar to that of Treasure Caskets. A Gold Sturdy Pyxis will require you to correctly guess a number between a range of values (ie. guess the number between 11 ~ 33). After each guess you will receive a clue about the target number.

Peering between the crack will allow you to see exactly what is contained in the chest. This type of chest also has an extremely large version, which usually contains key items for popping higher tier NMs in the area you are in. However, they can also contain potent temporary items or powerful augmented equipment.

Chest Tiers

There are various tiers of chest, which can be identified by the spread of numbers you are able to input:

Tier Spread of Numbers
I 11~33
II 11~44
III 11~55
IV 11~99 (Big Chests)
11~77 (Small Chests)

The tier can be increased by obtaining Amber Light. The tier dictates the quality of the reward you can obtain:
