I've had these activate a total of one time, they always appear open in a small area where you fight some white ninjas. Does anyone know what causes them to start dropping yellow orbs?

I've seen them before but on one playthrough they all started repeatedly dropping yellow orbs for the duration of the fight, ended up with about 6000 Essence from the encounter but haven't been able to get them to drop again.

That's the ET/UT tutorial area? Right outside the room with the Herb chest and the Ninja come at you through the sliding doors (Shouji).
No idea what makes them work, I didn't think they ever worked above Acolyte.

Edit: Yeah I checked the one run I have recorded and no essence from those chests on MN *shrug*

Yeah I'm still trying to figure out what caused it. It was on NG+ on Mentor Ninja though, so I likely went through the Chapter pretty quickly.

I suspect it's something to do with how fast you reach the area or linked to other chests. I can't find any information on it anywhere. Not even a mention that the chests exist but their clearly visible. I remember thinking it was odd they were open the very first time I went through there.

Could try rushing through to see. Alternatively, since they're already open maybe it's a save related thing? Like had you reloaded on the times it didn't work but done so when they did work? Or something odd like that. I really doubt it but, well, game has some odd little quirks. Hell, even something like having not used any ET/UTs causing it?
I prolly won't have time to go have a look any time soon :/

Couple things that never got figured out no matter how much we tried (other than the conclusion being "well, guess it's just random").

Yeah I might try to figure it out later while rushing through on NG+, I need to make a fresh manual save. It's not anything huge, but the early boost would be nice on higher difficulties
