A fireproof container with 12 slots.

-Scrapbook Description

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 Mobs in the game that can steal from, or knock items out of, chests; Splumonkeys, Krampus, Slurtles, and Bearger.

The chest can be upgraded if you use Elastispacer on it. Updated chests will not have a stack limit. The updated chest differs from the usual one in its very elongated model, as well as a golden frame in the UI design of the inventory. An item in a chest that exceeds its stack limit will be taken from the chest according to the maximum stack of the item

Collapsed Chest

If you destroy a Large Chest that contains a large number of items, then instead of items falling out, a broken version of it will appear in its place. You can get out of it one item at a time that was wounded in it. Or you can completely restore it by spending the necessary resources on it, in which case the chest will be restored with all the resources inside.

  • 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 the Dragonfly becomes much easier to fight after Scalemail is acquired, and in later Summers, the player may have enough gold to mass-produce Scaled Chests.
  • The same functionality 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.
  • Despite the fact that it is believed that tall chests can contain an infinite number of items in one cell. In fact, the number of items in a cell can be a maximum of 4,294,967,29
