The gold for a strngbox is generated as if it was a chest, but the rest is different, IIRC.
No you can't. I've done literally hundreds of SOS's over the past year, and "normal" SOS's are 10,20, or 30k only.I'm still pretty new to the MIBs, but I was under the impression that the Ancient SOS chests were the only SOS chests that came with 40k in them (other than maybe a Ship's Strongbox). Is that incorrect? Can you get 40k gold from a chest that came from a regular SOS? .
The Ship's Strongbox is by far the "2nd most rare" of what can be fished up from normal SOS's... Seriously more rare than the other normal "rares" found like Table Legs, Nets, Dresses, Bows, Leggings, etc... The only thing more "rare" than the Strongboxes is, of course, the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - of which I have 3 now - thank you very much.I've only had two Ancient SOS chests since I got back into fishing recently and they both had 40k in them and I haven't had any other chests with 40k in them and have fished up about 40 or so in the last 2-3 weeks. I've yet to get a Ship's Strongbox, but I'll definitely add it as a category.
While I have done perhaps a total of at least 1500 (probably more, wasn't counting) SOS's, I'm saving my ASOS's for fun later so have never seen or heard of a WHITE strongbox from an ASOS or anywhere else for that matter... But you've now given me something to hopefully look forward to.... I would love to have a pure white strongbox... That would be the crowning touch on the oceanfront, fishing theme home I'm getting ready to build...If my memory serves, there's 1 strongbox type that might be at least as rare as the bikini. I seem to remember someone getting a WHITE strongbox from an ASOS. Am I misremembering, or can someone confirm?
