Neverwinter Nights has a lot of locked chests, and it is kind of tedious to unlock (or have a henchman or familiar unlock) a chest when it would take a single bash or spell to break it. But does breaking chests somehow change the loot in it for the worse, like in some other games? It would take a bunch of testing to settle this, but I'm sure someone has already done it and my search-foo just isn't up to it.

  • I'm pretty sure it tells you this in the tutorial about locked chests. And that you get broken items when you bash them.

No, items do not get broken, you can bash to your hearts content. See here and here.

However it is perfectly possible to script mods to destroy items, when you bash chests. So, your experience may differ with a mod.
