Guild Wars 2 Chest Farming: Kessex Hills & Gendarran Fields
This splendid chest is easy to get to and offers the explorer achievement "Goff's Lost" when obtained that's worth 10 achievement points.
Run or teleport to Greyhoof Camp WP or Gap WP.
From Greyhoof Camp WP, run east along the trail towards Goff's Bandits POI. If you ported to Gap WP, run north.
In the area you first enter there are a load of bandits and two cannons you'll have to fight. I recommend taking this area slow and killing the cannons first.
In the back of the room there is a Veteran Bandit, I recommend battling her alone, after you've killed the bandits and cannons in the first part of the room. Because, in your battle with her you might aggro more bandits in the next room.
After you're done with the Veteran, north, there's a room lined with cages with veteran trolls inside. After you've cleaned the bandits out of that area, you'll be able to see the chest through the makeshift prison bars.
Open the dialogue box by clicking on the door and try to open the doors. The two veteran trolls will spawn. After you kill them, the prison doors will open. For approaching the chest you'll earn Goff's Lost achievement (10 points).
This chest only shows up after you complete the event to remove Ettins from Gort's cave. Gort reveals it after you've completed it.
Teleport or run to the waypoint in Cereboth Canyon and run north/northeast past mobs of Ettins to the POI in the cave, there is a small path on the map that leads you right into the cave.
Or, if the event is up, you will see a giant standing right outside at the entrance there.
To complete the event all you have to do is kill the 3 ettins and 1 veteran ettin occupying Gort's cave. It takes longer to wait for Gort to walk to reveal his treasure than it does for you to finish the event.
He will walk to the northmost part of the cave and move a wall of collapsed rocks to reveal a chest labeled "Gort's Treasure." This chest will not drop empyreal fragments, though.
The chest is in an underwater cave where the Wiley's Cove POI is accessed.
Teleport to Brigatine WP.
Head east, into the water. Around a corner you'll see a sunken ship right in front of an opening to the underwater cave. There will be some drakes to fight right outside of it, but once you get through, surface the water.
The cave is swarming with pirates, including a champion in a tent and campfire who's guarding a chest.
If you go up the east side of the cave, you can kill the several pirates standing around there to clear the area a bit before taking on the champion. But you can't attack any of the 3 pirates in the camp without aggroing the champion.
In the southwest corner of Gendarran Fields, in Lionbridge Expanse, teleport to Lionbridge WP.
Head directly south, into the Lawen Ponds.
This area is swarming with Risen, so be prepared to fight. As you approach the cave on the eastern side of the swamp a Champion will emerge from the cave. You can either fight him or go invisible and sneak inside, where you can then loot the chest and escape without fighting him at all.
As my mesmer, I use clones to distract him while I use mass invisibility and loot the chest, then use clones again to distract him while I escape.
If I've forgotten or missed any chests, please let me know so I can fix it! I put these two zones together because otherwise the hub would have been very short, but the remaining Kryta map has too many chests to be blended with them.
