If I have 2 chars at FOTM level 10 and I do FOTM10 on both of them in 1 day do i get 2 daily chests? Or is the daily per account?

It's character-based. You would get 2 "chests".

Can anyone confirm this please? I always thought it was account based.

I have a follow-up question.

My alt has so far only managed to pass level 1. In theory, I could run only odd levels to reach level 10 for example. True?

false, regardless of what level you complete while in fotm, your character's level only goes up by 1.  rewards are also scaled to your character's current level in fotm.

As far as I understand it you won't get the bonus chest unless you are at a bonus-level personally. So if you are level one and do lvl 10 you won't get the lvl 10 daily chest, if you do it on level 20 when you are lvl 12 you will get the level 12 chest.

Right, but I will be able to progress, won't I?

I'm asking this because I'd like to get an alt to level 10 asap (in increments of 1 doing only 3 fractals to level up) so I have two characters that I can do daily runs with.

If you're at level 1, and you join 9 level 10 runs, you're level 10 in the end. It doesn't matter what level you play, as long as it is equal or higher than your current fractal level, your fractal level increases by 1. If that makes any sense.

Can't really confirm myself, but it works like dungeon paths.

Consider each 10 fractal levels as a dungeon path, for example fractal levels 1-9 as path 1, levels 10-19 as path 2, levels 20-29 as path 3, and so on.
Like dungeons, the first time (on a day) you do a path on a character, you get the daily bonus. If you do it again on a different character, you get the daily bonus again.

I'm not entirely sure but I think I was on an odd level fractal which I was doing with my guardian and the group level was 10, we beat maw and I got the daily chest (like if I did 2/4/6/8) then I later did an even fractal after 4(?) and I got no daily chest.

I'd have to test it out another time but I'm pretty sure this is what happened.

edit: Just did FotM, personal level 6 party level was 9. I did not get a chest for my personal even level. So it appears that you only get a chest when you do an even level regardless of your personal level.

Nope. The other day I did a level 10 run when I was personally at level 7, and I still got the bonus chest at the end. It didn't give level 10 loot, obviously, but I still got a chest.

I've also done many a level 2 and level 4 run while above that level (and at an odd level) and still gotten the chest.

I confirm that. Its character based.

With the new path yes. For exemple, you can run Level 10 once a day until you reach level 10. Each day you gonna have the daily chest of level 1-9 even if you personnal reward level is not a even number. Its gonna take you 9 run to reach level 10 (so 9 days if you want a daily chest each time and the 10th day you gonna have the daily chest of level 10-19).

No that is false.

What are my source? Myself. My guardian is max level now (that suck because i can't got to level 80 anymore like i wanted to) so now on the 28th i started my Engineer that was level 2. With my engie I got 4 daily chest until now. I got the daily chest by doing level 10, whatever was my personnel reward level (odd or even number). But you won't gonna have your daily chest if your reward level is a even number and you do a higher odd level.

Basically, each day do a even number and after that do only odd number during the same day. This system is really nice, because player that can only make 1 Fotm per day or less, gonna alway have their daily chest. While player that want to do several Fotm during the same day (lets say hardcore player or when you have a relax weekend day), you can do only one even number, then do the number of odd fractal you want to level up while no putting time for nothing on Jade Maw (if your goal is to level up faster, because the Jade Maw chest got some really nice lot).

So basically there is now no point to doing odd level fractals?

If you want the Maw chest, then yes, you don't need to ever do odd-level fractals again with this change.

If you don't care for the Maw chest but want to progress through fotm quicker, then no, exclusively doing odd-level fractals would be your best bet.

I personally want the Maw chest so I no longer do odd-level fractals.

The point of the odd numbered levels is to progress into higher levels. For example I have a character on lvl 13, but I always choose to do 12 for the daily and have yet to have enough time to also do 13 so I can move to a lvl 14 for daily.

Until I do lvl 13 I can not go to 14.

You can just join a group for level 14 Fractals, even if you're personal level is 13. Once you complete level 14 Fractal your personal level will change to 14.

Same applies if you're at level 6 FotM and join a group to do level 14. Once completed, your personal level goes to 7, then if you do level 12 Fractal afterwards your personal level goes to 8, then if you do 10 after that your personal level goes to 9.

Provided you're doing a FotM higher level than your personal level, your personal level will increase by 1 each time.
