Perandus chest

A Perandus chest

Perandus chests are small golden chests with a cylindrical shape. They can be found in maps with the Perandus effect, crafted using Zana's map device. Note that this is only possible when Perandus is one of the available modifiers this league.

The chests are guarded by packs of golden monsters and unique chest guardians. The chest will revive slain guardians, eventually unlocking after reviving a certain amount of monsters. Sometimes a chest is also guarded by unique enemies. Killing them automatically unlocks the chest, but it is still possible to unlock the chest by killing lesser monsters. The chest may also cast an effect while locked.

Once the chest is unlocked, its guardians will gradually disappear, even ones that aren't slain. Whatever effect the chest might provide will also be disabled.

When the chests are opened they drop loot and Perandus Coin inventory icon.pngPerandus CoinsPerandus CoinStack Size: 1000Trade coins to Cadiro Perandus.
