    I've been trying to farm for a Soulborne Axe and have noticed that I find far fewer rare chests than I did in the Doom Ripper and Traveler's Pack dungeons.

    Do more rare chests appear in Public games?

    Does anyone have any advice on hunting for rare chests in the Skull Tower dungeon?

    rare tower chest is rarer than doomwood and greenguard rare chest. i guess its 5%spawn. i always hunted at private dungeon. i think its the same at both public and private dungeons. but for me, i prefered private because in public some people are so selfish they dont wait for others to smash the chest and its so annoying.

    I agree with you...
    Better choose a private room than public and just keep trying until you find that chest and got soulborne axe...

    Yeah, the rare chest spawn there are uncomparable to doomwood and greenguard chest, that makes it harder to farm sb axe, what I hate the most its because the room that has no chest is often what I encounter in all 3 rooms >.<

    Rates shouldn't be any different, but some dungeons have more chest spots than others. All rare chests have the same spawn rate (around 5%), and their items have similar drop rates (i.e. Traveler's Pack, Doom Ripper, Soulborne Axe at around 1%).

    These screenshots might be handy:
    Greenguard Chest Locations
    Doomwood Chest (Umbral Caves) Locations
    Tower Chest Locations

    As for a farming tip, try using alt characters to burn your keys to scout for chests, and then when you find a rare chest, bring you main character in the dungeon. Might be tougher to do on Shadowskull Tower dungeons since those are level locked.

    It doesn't matter how you run the dungeon because drop rates are NOT depended on dungeon being public or private and number of players in the dungeons doesn't increase or decrease spawn rates of chests either what i am aware. Spawn rate of Tower Rare Chests is around 5% just as others have already stated on this thread.

    i think the soulborne axe from rare chests could do with a style up because it's so much harder now than buying it from a shop like in the past

    I wish they could increased the spawn rate of the chest since mimic chest will implemented anytime soon, and still I haven’t gotten my soulborne drop ;(

    I do have 10 alts at L18 ... but I don't really have time to use them to scout. And when I did it in the past, the rates were still horrible ... I'd usually only get 2-3 a day (out of 80 keys) ...

    These days I just use up the keys on my character while I'm on the train ...


    I kinda suspect this too ... but have neither the data or any other form of evidence to prove it ...

    Yes I wouldn’t mind signing a petition to AE to increase drop rate of rare chest in Skulltower.. I’m sure the drop rate much is lower than any other in the game. Older players claim it was so much easier before, and now SBA is only a costume anyway at this point. I haven’t heard of it dropping for anyone since late 2017. Utterly frustrating for everyone who is hunting it.

    Soulborne Axe is not a costume item yet. However, I do agree with the drop rates being increased. It's rigged so people fail and waste time right now.

    A lot of the game is built around grinding ... which I kinda disagree with ... but since I mostly play AQ3D while commuting, I'm ok with it ...

    That said, AE should really switch models ... going from hard grinding to hard game play ...

    Just my 2 cents ...

    I think this is RNG based or something doesn't always make sense about the drop rates. I've had rare chests drop 3 times in a row but obviously they almost never have anything other than potions. Then there have been times where I'll be in 20+ rooms that have the ability to spawn a rare chest and nothing. So yeah, still hunting that traveler pack, so so annoying. When I get it, it's never getting sold :)

    Using alt char is the best way to catch them
