Treasure is any loot placed in containers or on a creature's corpse. Dragon Age uses a treasure system to determine what items will be distributed as loot (not including those preset). The criteria is determined by the rank of the object and the Treasure Category.

Creatures tend to mostly drop consumables, which are generated upon death. Containers are distributed equipment, and are set when the area is first entered.
