The Scaled Chest is a craftable container in the Reign of Giants DLC. It requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype, and costs 1 Scale, 4 Boards, and 10 Gold Nuggets to craft. Unlike the regular Chest, the Scaled Chest is fireproof and has 12 slots, as opposed to the normal Chest's 9 slots.

Items can be stored in a Scaled Chest by dragging them onto it or by opening the Chest to place them in specific slots. Chests help keep items better organized than by dropping them on the ground. Note that there are four (4) mobs in the game that can steal from, or knock items out of, chests; Splumonkeys, Krampus, Slurtles, and Bearger.

Placeholder.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While Scaled Chests may seem desirable for a hot Summer, due to the risk of spontaneous combustion and the Dragonfly's natural vandalism for ashes, it is probably best to use Scales to craft Scalemail first, since after Scalemail is crafted, the Dragonfly becomes much easier to fight, and in later Summers, the player may have enough gold to mass-produce Scaled Chests.
  • The same functionality of Scaled Chests can be achieved with Piggybacks with the only drawback being that players have to constantly equip and unequip the Piggybacks to check the items inside of them
