Even though you might get low amounts of gold, you have a chance at some really rare treasure cards/reagents. Just today I got sunstone from one wooden chest. Yesterday I got the regenerate life spell treasure card which I didn't even knew existed. The gold amounts might change but it's worth it for the future prizes of rare treasure cards and reagents.
That doesn't sound like it's working right does it?
Help us find out what's going on by sending us a bug report on this Wooden Chest that's skimping on gold.
Submit the bug through email to firstname.lastname@example.org Put Wooden Chest Gold Bug in the subject and in the body, put as much information as you can about the Chest itself - what zone was it located in, where in that zone if you remember, did it give anything else as well, etc.
We'll track down which chest and fix it, thank you!
Professor Greyrose, ALL of the chest I gathered in Stormriven were that way. Usually around 10-15 gold in each but every one of them in that area are like this. All the other areas I've come across give an abundance of gold except this area. Hope that helps a bit.
