Are there any requisites for them to spawn?

Where do I find cursed chests?

This are chests that are supposed to give big rewards after beating a group of elites.

  • I believe the intent is that you won't know a chest is cursed until you open it. That being said I haven't found one yet. Feb 27, 2014 at 17:39
  • there's a particular cursed chest run right now that's the main target for farming, averaging about 1b xp per hour

Cursed chests do look different then regular chests. They kind of look like the demonic versions of the big golden 'Resplendent' chests.

Here's a picture of one: Cursed Chest

Apparently, however, many of these chests spawn in predetermined positions across all acts. See http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9887928799 for details.

That being said, see this blue post that says: 'Cursed chests are similar to other events. They have some degree of randomness, such as where exactly in a dungeon they spawn (if they spawn at all)'

  • The first link no longer works. A similar list seems to be at eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9887928799 -- maybe edit the content from it into this answer?
