Regular Chests are by far the most common Chests in the game. They have a variety of looks, are smaller than other Chests, and have a white glow.

Resplendent Chests are larger than Regular Chests. They hold more and better loot, and emit a golden glow.

Resplendent Guardian Chest
In World Tier 3: Nightmare and above, players can chance upon a type of Resplendent Chest that's protected by an Elite, called a Resplendent Guardian. Once the Resplendent Guardian is killed, the Chest can then be opened.TOP
Players receive a Radiant Chest when they complete the first objective of an Event (but fail to complete the second, Mastery objective). Radiant Chests have a boxier shape than the more rounded Regular and Resplendent Chests, and they're one of the only ways to get Obols (10).

Greater Radiant Chest
If a player completes an Event's Mastery objective (i.e., the hardest one), they're given a Greater Radiant Chest, which are larger than Radiant and emit a golden glow. Inside are 35 Obols, along with more Gold and loot.

While in the PvP zone, Fields of Hatred, players will come across stone containers with fiery rings around them, called Baleful Chests. They're filled with hundreds of Seeds of Hatred (and other loot).
Baleful Chests can only be opened if the player is Bloodmarked (i.e., looking for PvP action). Players can use the Emote Wheel to turn on Bloodmarking.

Helltide Chests (also known as Tortured Gifts) are only found within Helltides, which last 60 minutes. They require a specific number of Aberrant Cinders that are acquired via Events, Monster, and opening objects. Also, they spawn in predictable places, as tracked by the service, Helltides.com.
Helltide Mystery Chests
Although rarer and costlier (175 Cinders), Helltide Mystery Chests (or Tortured Gift of Mysteries) offer the best loot in the game. It's recommended that players focus solely on these Helltide Mystery Chests, as opposed to the item slot-specific ones. For a full overview on how to get as many Mystery Chests as possible during the Helltide, see our dedicated section on: Helltide Mystery Chests.

Helltide Chests for specific item slots
If players exhaust the Mystery Chests in a Helltide, they can then look to spend their Cinders on Chests for specific slots. These Chests typically contain 2-4 items of the same slot.

Mutterlock Chests are rare and can only be opened with a correct passphrase. Choosing the wrong passphrase makes the Chest vanish.
Players are given a choice of 8 phrases, which are a mix of Latin and fake words:
- Sint et maldus
- Sint et palox
- Sint la maldus
- Sint la palox
- Vemp et maldus
- Vemp et palox
- Vemp la maldus
- Vemp la palox
In order to figure out the correct phrase, players must find 3 nearby Whispering Stone objects, each one providing the player with 1 of the 3 words in the passphrase.

Silent Chests are temporary, locked chests that randomly spawn across Sanctuary. Players will see Silent Chests appear on their minimap and must rush to them before they disappear.
Opening Silent Chests
Silent Chests can only be opened with Whispering Keys, which are purchased for 20 Obols from the Purveyor of Curiosities. Note that the Whispering Key must be in the player's Inventory at the time of opening the Chest (i.e., it can't be in the Stash).

Blizzard hasn't revealed how much better Silent Chest items are; however, given the added trouble players have to go through to open them, the items' Item Powers are likely higher than those in other Chests.TOP
