Lost Ark Salt Giant spawn location, strategy, and drops

How to face a salty enemy.

Salt Giant is a boss found in one of the first areas of Lost Ark.

They are worth tracking down as, by defeating world bosses, you can get some decent drops. Although it is a level 19 boss, this is a hard opponent, so you will struggle to fight it without help from others.

This page explains where you can find the Salt Giant spawn location, the possible Salt Giant drops - and of course, a strategy to take it down.

Here's Ian exploring Lost Ark and playing a boring class, but he's got a really cool mount!

Salt Giant location and spawns

Salt Giant is level 19 world boss in Lost Ark that can be found in Saland Hill, an area in Yudia.

Specifically, Salt Giant spawns in the center area of Aregal Salt Plains. The closest teleport to get there is the tripod in Nomad Camp.

The Salt Giant spawns every 30 minutes. It is important to know that Lost Ark has a great number of channels for each area, which work as different instances.

In case you are in the right place, but Salt Giant hasn't spawned yet, you can change to another channel and see if it is up there. You will know Salt Giant is near because of a red mark on the ground indicating the area it is in.

Salt Giant strategy: How to beat the Salt Giant boss

This fight is pretty simple, but you must pay attention to positioning in order to avoid Salt Giant's attack. As usual in Lost Ark, the boss won't keep attacking the same character during the whole fight, since its aggro is random.

From time to time, it will change. In case you are not playing with a tankier class and it is picked as the boss' next target, just run for some time until it chooses another one.

During most of the fight, Salt Giant uses basic attacks, punching players, or a semi-circular blast attack. The boss' most dangerous attack is a circular charging AoE around it.

Even though it is telegraphed by a red circle and the boss movement of lifting its arms, it can be tricky to avoid it if you are not paying attention, since it happens considerably fast.

In case you are playing a melee class, like a martial artist, you might want to save your dash for when Salt Giant uses this attack.

Salt Giant drops and rewards

Once the fight is done, you are going to earn some epic pieces of gear, and an epic chest.

From opening, you can get more gear, cards to equip, consumables, maps for secret places. However, this chest drops only after your first kill.
