    Exclamation Important Announcement - PLEASE READ

    It has just come to our attention that a high diplomacy skill DOES affect the loot given in chests. We have done extensive testing on this and we have come up with the following procedure to guarantee that you get the best possible loot every single time:

    1) Equip all of your best +CHA items
    2) Circle the chest three time moving counter-clockwise.
    3) Use your Diplomacy skill
    4) Open the chest from the north-facing side of the chest.

    Also, "looking for ham" may, in some cases, affect loot-gained. We still aren't sure at what point in the process you should turn on /lfh though. As soon as we know, we’ll be sure to let you know.

    We apologize for the confusion on the matter and we are truly sorry that you have gotten any less than the maximum loot for the past year. Following the steps above should ensure this doesn't happen again.

    You have failed to mention the effect that /dance has on a chest with a high CHA.

    The sad thing is that so many people will in fact believe this to be true in spite of all evidence to the contrary

    A slight clarification, I 've found the "looking for ham" works better on raid loot, while /dance works best on standard quests

    You guys are terrible. Making all the newbs frantic to test out this lie. I mean you do realize that someone will think it's true, rather then a prank for april first and it'll cause huge fights with everyone. Thanks for making me have to listen to this garbage in group for months now. You owe me a katana for this...

    Yes, especially since I said, I'll have to listen people spouting this for months so people can't open chests. They could have done this for end rewards, but people already do screwy things for chests sometimes, this is not the encouragement the insane needed.

    And all this time I thought it was /grovel that affected chests. Now don't I feel silly when it was diplomacy all along.
