Rare Encounters: Saltmarsh[edit]

There are a couple of things of note about the rares in this area:

  • Quaron and The Wailer are not actually rare, although you'll need to solve a floating stones puzzle to summon Quaron.
    • The puzzle's solution is static - the sequence 12342 will always work. (1, in this case, is the leftmost stone when facing the central obelisk, and 4 is the rightmost stone.)
  • If Wartorrent spawns, it will be inside a breakable crate.

XP per encounter:  ♦?Normal ●5,250Epic
Bonus XP for solving all encounters:  ♦?Normal ●44,625Epic
