    do gold chests never drop anything good?

    in all the time I have been playing, I don't think even once I have seen anything of value drop from a gold chest, whereas I've seen a hr drop from a regular chest

    Afaik, it depends on the area, the chest is.

    Ive found tons of hrs and uniques in those chests. And they can drop many different kinds of items.
    But Im not an expert!

    Also, if you happen to open one when you "accidentally" find it along your way, chances are low it'll give you something good.
    But if you run the same chest specifically over and over for a long period, you might get lucky.

    (and ofcourse, Archone's advice, high level areas yield better stuff!)

    I hit the chest when I do pit runs or AT runs. I've had runes (mostly 10 million vex runes) and a bunch of unique rings and amulets. I think (but don't quote me) that I might have had a couple of facets too.

    I'm mostly talking about Pit and Mausoleum gold chests, run those all the time and have never seen anything good from them, guess just bad luck, I've had great luck finding stuff in other places in the pit or Mausoleum

    They're all equivalent to AT because they're all lvl 85 from my understanding. The exception to this, however, is the runes that can drop from an object like a chest depend on the act. So AT chest can drop up to Lo, and act 1 chests can drop up to Vex.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, someone, but I think that's all

    so are the gold chests supposed to have a higher drop rate of quality than a regular chest in the same area?

    The way they check for items is completely different. This guide talks about some object item generation. Everything is still applicable to 1.13 except the actual rates of a given rune

    My quick answer would be yes, but I don't know/remember off-hand
