Destiny - Vault of Glass chest locations

We've got the locations of every single loot chest in Destiny's Vault of Glass raid, along with a guide to all of the combat loot tables.

Although we've dealt with chest locations as we encountered them earlier in the guide, we thought it would be nice to list them all on a single page for easy consumption. This is that page. We will also list the things you can obtain from the Raid, because we're nice.

Vault of Glass Chest locations

Chest 1 - After opening the Vault

The first chest in the Vault of Glass is incredibly easy to find. Once you open the door to the Raid, head down through the tunnels until you reach, well, the chest. It's right there.

New Chest

As of the Age of Triumph update, a new chest can be found just after Chest 1 and before you go to the Templar fight. Full instructions are detailed in the previous link.

Chest 2 - Templar fight

The second chest is hidden in a secret room found in the Templar boss fight arena. Head up the stairs on the left and examine the right-hand wall - you should see a gap that you can boost through. Inside is a standard Venus chest containing Spirit Bloom.

Chest 3 and 4 - Gorgon's Labyrinth

4

The third and fourth chests are in the Gorgon's Labyrinth. If you took the secret exit from the Templar fight (the one with the Spirit Bloom chest), you should find it pretty easily - you just keep dropping down until you find yourself outside a semi-circular Vex door. The chest is on a platform inside.

If you took the standard route, though, exiting the Templar fight through the main door at the back, then when you get to the floor of the Gorgon's Labyrinth - after the particularly massive jump down - immediately go left and look for a gap high up on a wall. Jump and boost through it and you will reach the Vex door that leads to it.

To locate the fourth chest, return or proceed to the start of the labyrinth - you will have water round your ankles and a big ramp-shaped rock ahead of you - and go right and forwards, hugging the right wall until you find another Vex door leading to a chest on a platform.

Vault of Glass loot drops

Note this is correct as of the original Light level Raids from Destiny's first year.

There are five noteworthy loot drops in the Vault of Glass, offering up ascendant materials, unique weapons and legendary armour that can be upgraded to 30 light - meaning a full set or three pieces plus an exotic will allow you to hit level 30 with your character.

You stand a good chance of gaining cool loot after you dispatch the Oracles, then when you kill the Templar, then at the Gorgon's Labyrinth chest, then after the Gatekeepers and of course once Atheon goes down. But what do you get for your trouble?
