In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, there are hidden chests throughout the world with some excellent loot that periodically refresh their contents.
There are invisible chests scattered throughout the world of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, many of which hold some incredibly valuable items. The best part about these chests is that they refresh periodically, meaning players can visit them again and again to get all sorts of loot that they can sell or use. By taking items from these chests, players can become very powerful quickly.
These chests are difficult to find, and they only appear in certain places. It seems strange that these exist, as there is no lore behind these invisible chests. No one in the game mentions or acknowledges them, so players may wonder why they are there in the first place. It turns out that they are an interesting bit of programming tied to merchants. Their existence in the game is technically a glitch, which Skyrim has a lot of due to its massive world.
Each merchant in Skyrim has a hidden chest that stores their inventory. Usually, these chests are inaccessible to players, being stored below the world or in other places that players can’t get to. When players ask what they have for sale, merchants access this chest, rather than having all the items on their person. This is so that even if the player pickpockets or kills them, they can’t access all the merchant’s items. This also means they won’t equip items that players sell them, as the items instead go into the chest. If they hadn’t programmed it like this, it would look like what is comically seen in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. In that game, players could sell an item such as a Daedric helm to a merchant, and the merchant would wear it. The result of which was late in the game, merchants would be equipped with all sorts of quality armor and weapons.
