Player Notes

      • If you're looking to farm Crypt Keepers for items, place a Stone Guide at the nearby sanctuary. Guides have a passive effect of boosting drop chances in the area, and you can stock up on Calling Horns to teleport directly to your sanctuary and revive the Crypt Keeper quickly. 
      • Shimmering Pearls and King's orders don't drop often at all, prepare to farm them a lot! To boost your drop chances, equip the Kismet Stone and/or Brightcoral Ring.
      • 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, use Calling Horn to warp back to the sanctuary and repeat. Characters with high damage output can make this run in about 20 seconds, which yields 6050 salt (with a Stone Leader and Grasping Ring) with a decent chance to drop A Lord's Orders or rarely A King's Orders/Shimmering Pearl.
      • Another place previous to Mal's Castle is on the far bottom left side of Hager's Cavern 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.
      • The Crypt keepers are wearing Golem's HeadGolem's TorsoGolem's ArmsGolem's Legs and wield the  Bonecrusher and Earthsplitter.

      Use a Stone Leader when farming for that extra +500 salt per kill bonus.
      Obviously Stone Guide for +item drop too.

        Towards the end of game at the bottom of Crypt of dead gods is a Candle/shrine with Crypt keeper directly below it, by far the fastest farming spot. you'll need bells to get back to candle though.

          If farming with a friend, the host can get the peal, but the friend gets a basic item. If you drop the pearl for the friend, it turns into a bag of salt!!!

            The one in Salt Alkymancery consistently oneshots me when others can't take a third of my health. Is that a bug?

              jaws of death+7 at 34 strength + goldenwine + 10% damage ring + 10% damage charm + tarnished coronet = 4 strong attacks to kill it. Insane damage output inerrupts his jump and light attack but his strong attack has hyperarmor.

                If you're farming this guy in Mal's, wear Mireheart Charm.
                Also if you're a mage a single Static Geist can instakill him ocassionally.
                I farmed him with Geist and a Poleaxe, when I switched to Shikeimaru Geist started killing him alone almost every second time.

                  It took me about 1 hour to get 15 lord orders and 5 king orders to finish my onyx set. Worth the time and salt for lvls.

                    Killed him over 100 times in cloud castle. He dropped 1 king's order, 18 lord's orders and 12 ashes. I had around 20 willpower.

                      If you happen to be in the 'Order of the Betrayer' creed, throwing them a Flask of Defilment can make the fight substancially easier.

                        I have done this Three times so it seems to be legit: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).

                          You can farm them quickly in the crypt after dropping down from the small sanctuary before Skourzh if you have bells.One of them is right next to you and there is a another a bit to the left.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.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 This I think is a early place to find him
