Black Lion Chest Drop Rate Data

Black Lion Chests contain an assortment of Black Lion items and are opened with a Black Lion Chest Key. The chests themselves are easy enough to come by but the BL Keys can only be obtained through map completion rewards, rare drops, and by purchasing them directly from the Gem Store for 125 gems a piece. BL chests have the potential to reward highly valuable items, but as you’ll see, the odds are not in you favor. We’ve compiled a set of Black Lion Chest drop results based on 397 data points. This data is recorded from BL Chests that were opened in the time period since Heart of Thorns was released, in order to provide current data. While this sample size is not large enough to draw definite conclusions, it should give you an idea of what to expect should you decide to spend your money on BL Chest Keys.

Black Lion Chest Results Overview

In each BL Chest there will always be one booster (XP, Item, Regen, etc), which is why their drop rate is listed as 100%. Aside from boosters, you can see that the top item drops are “Black Lion Ticket Scraps” and “Unidentified Dyes”. The rarest drops appear to be “Black Lion Claim Tickets”, “Permanent Nodes”, and other “Permanent” items.
