In order to open a chest/coffer you need either the chest/coffer key for that zone, or you need to be a thief with lockpicking tools. See: Picking your Coffers and Chests

Timing

After being opened, the Chest or Coffer will respawn in one of the designated locations after approximately 25-30 minutes. One exception to this is if a Chest is opened and a Magical Pattern is obtained (for use in the quest The Goblin Tailor) in which case the Chest will respawn in approximately 15 minutes. Another exception is if a Thief attempts to pick the lock of a Coffer and fails, producing a Mimic - in this case the Coffer will respawn immediately.

Treasure Chests

Treasure Chests can be found in the lower level dungeons. They can contain some good items and give decent gil.

* Only available if you have the necessary quest active.
** Automatically received if you do not already have the map. Quest items take priority.
