I don’t know about you but this recent patch has me really damn excited! Along with a host of other goodies, Legendary weapons have been added to the game and there is only one way of getting them – Killing the World Boss, looting a key and finding the Legendary Chest.

World Boss and Legendary Chest Map

Currently the World Bosses all range in various types of difficulty. Each one, however has a significant HP pool and will be extremely difficult to solo at lower levels. These boss monsters are considered “End Game Content” for experienced players. When you’ve found a monster boss you need to undertake the daunting task of slaying the beast. Some of the bosses can take 5-15 minutes to down so it’s worthwhile bringing a friend!

After you’ve finally killed the boss the next task is finding the Legendary Chest. These chests look like normal loot chests and are hidden with in the vicinity of the monster. Look between rocks or at the base of trees.

As I mentioned there is a boss for each type of animal or creature in the game, below are the ones I’ve come across.

Rocknose

I’ve only seen one of these but he’s really impressive! Located at the base of Fingerfang Rock he’s guarding the passage through. Although he looks very intimidating he’s actually quite easy to dispatch as he has a low Hp pool. I think this might need some adjusting by the developers at some point!

The Legendary chest is located up on the cliff to it’s left.

Rhino

Located South of Sepermeru, City of the Relic Hunters and at the Oasis you’ll find the Rhino boss. As with all Rhinos in Conan Exiles their HP pool is significant.

Not only does he have a lot of HP but is extremely strong as well. Just think of a Black Rhino but on buckets of steroids. This Rhino is certainly one of the harder monsters you can face in your hunt for Skeleton Keys! The Chest is nestled away in a small rocky outcrop near where the Rhino spawns.

Scorpion

The attacks are easy to avoid and has a very low HP pool compared to the other bosses. You can find them in the very south of the Unnamed City and East of the Set City. I have found 6 locations with these World boss Scorpions.

In most cases, at each of these spawns the Legendary Chest is in plain sight.

Crocodile

I’ve found three World boss Crocodile locations and in this example it’s located South of the Sinners Refuge at a small oasis legendary chest location. The Crocodile has a sizeable hp pool but also slow, predictable attacks making them easy to avoid. Should you get hit by one of them you’ll likely die instantly at lower levels.

The Chest is found at a near by rock and partially submerged in water.

Spider

In the example above, this Spider Boss is located South of Spine Breakers Flank. You can find the Legendary Chest at the base of the rocky pillar. Spider World Bosses don’t have a large HP pool but attack quickly and also poison. If you’re not prepared you will be in for a tough fight.

Elephant

I don’t believe he has his own Legendary chest location, however as he is in close proximity to the White Tiger I believe they both share this chest.

White Tigertiger boss

There are two Tiger World bosses in the game, the one in this example is located under the Cliffs and Statues of the Boundary Spillway, north of the desert Grasslands.

The Tiger Bosses have a huge hp pool as well as fast attacks (compared to other bosses) but don’t hit too hard. The legendary chest is located on a rock at the bottom of the waterfall.

 

Sand Reaver

sand reaver world bossThe Sand Reaver world boss is a new creature to Conan Exiles and genuinely thought “wtf” when I first saw it. Terrifying in looks and tricky to fight. The HP pool is about medium compared with the other bosses but it hits hard and also poisons. Think of the Spider World boss but give it some steroids.

There are two in the game and one of them is located right above the Set city near the oasis. The legendary chest is in it’s nest.

Ent King Boss?

rocknose bossA little disclaimer, I’m not sure what this thing is. I don’t think there’s been any official word of what this creature is but I’m calling it an Ent Boss for now.

Another new creature to grace the Exiled Lands it looks like it’s made of wood, trees and bone. I’ve found 5 of them so far, one is located in the Shattered Springs.

Aside from looking really cool, they have a really huge HP pool, attack fast and hit hard. They’re tough to solo and you’ll likely get a beating unless you have plenty of Ambrosia on hand. Good luck fighting them!

Swamp Rhino

With the launch, Conan Exiles saw the addition of the Swamp and Volcano Biomes. With the Swamp in particular, there are two new World Bosses Exiles can face.

The first one is the Swamp Rhino. It’s just as powerful as a regular Rhino but looks like it’s part of the environment. This is a fierce creature I highly recommend bringing a friend when trying to take him down.

Spider Queen

If you thought the Ent was a formidable opponent , you haven’t experienced anything yet. The Spider Queen, as I’m calling her, is located on an island in the Sea of the Swamp land and a significant challenge.

If you combine three Sand Reaver World Bosses together this is what you get. Proceed with caution, or if you want the challenge.

Skeleton Keys

The Skeleton Key is an item acquired by killing and harvesting the very most toughest monsters in the game. Skeleton Keys have a 100% chance of drop rate on each boss and can be gained by usual means of harvesting flesh and or hide.

It’s important to note that the Skeleton Keys can be used at any of the Legendary Chests. This means, for now, you can potentially farm weaker boss monsters and then use their keys at different locations.

You must also be level 60 to open these chests.
