Player Notes

      • One of the best places to farm these is in Mal's Floating Castle. From the sanctuary, go left and then take the stairs up to a room with a Crypt Keeper. Kill him, Calling Horn back to the sanctuary and repeat. Characters with high damage output can make this run in about 20 seconds, which yields 6050 salt (with Leader and Grasping Ring) with a decent chance to drop A Lord's Orders or rarely A King's Orders.
      • Another place previous to Mal's Castle is on the far bottom left side of Hager's Cave where you can find a shrine. Go left from here to find a gaping hole needing the Hardlight brand to cross. Keep going left as you kill the cave guardians until you find the crypt keeper. End game after killing him will send you back to the small sanctuary. Going up the ladders from where the keeper is will bring you to the Fort/Pyramid section or the Mire zone's end.
      • Shimmering Pearls and King's orders don't drop often at all, prepare to farm them a lot! Use the Kismet Stone ring and the Brightcoral ring for higher chances.(And/or stack willpower)
      • the Crypt keepers are wearing Golem's Head,Golem's,Torso,Golem's Arms,Golem's Legs and wield the  Bonecrusher and Earthsplitter.

      I have done this Three times so it seems to be legit:<br/><br/>With sellsword at Mal's Castle, let the CK kill you, get revived by sellsword and kill the CK. We've BOTH gotten 10,000 salt. (Plus I got all my salt back as usual).<br/><br/>

        You can farm them quickly in the crypt after dropping down from the small sanctuary before Skourzh if you have bells.<br/>One of them is right next to you and there is a another a bit to the left.<br/><br/>You can either just kill the first one and use a bell to reset fast or walk to the other guy then reset with a bell.<br/><br/>They drop about 2,000 gold so you can buy more bells than you are using.

          In heagers cave he is at the very end of the cave when your run into the cave guardians(anglerfish guys) you need the hard light brand to reach him though <br/>This I think is a early place to find him
