Hello and welcome, This post will provide you with information regarding the Salt and Sanctuary – Complete Bestiary & Drop Guide, and we hope you will find this material helpful.

This guide contains the game’s whole bestiary, including each creature’s stats, items, and drop rates, all presented in a neat and easily searchable text format. All data comes from the game’s Enhanced Mode but can be utilized in Classic with a few exceptions.

Foreword

Before you look, Drowned Tomes are not dropped by anything in Enhanced Mode. Sorry. You’re still limited to one from the Unspeakable Deep, and one per cycle. Twisted Hearts are similarly still limited. I was disappointed, too.

Most changes to drops in Enhanced Mode consisted of increasing drop quantities for ammunition and consumables, adding Stone NPCs or Gray Pearls to certain creatures, and occasionally some novelty drops. Most stat tweaks had low impact; most adjustments were technical while a few truly affected gameplay. Therefore this guide is best used in Classic Mode; when in doubt check your ingame bestiary for discrepancies or assume your boss has more health. As time allows I will mark every change for readers’ ease.

As you read through this guide, you’ll notice numbers in parenthesis precede drops – these represent the item’s drop chance listed in its code but not necessarily its true chance in practice. For instance, an item with a drop rate stat of 200 has an exact 50% drop chance, 100 means 33% and 67 means 25%, respectively – for more details see “Addendum: Understanding Drop Chance”, otherwise, estimate using those drop rate breakpoints relative to yourself!

All creatures are listed in order of their appearance within the in-game bestiary.

18. The Unspeakable Deep

21. Vilehawk

Agile, tree-dwelling brigand, originating somewhere deep in the eastern Liven forests. In Liven, the Vilehawk tribes tended to play politics just enough as to not incur the wrath of the regular army, primarily by bribing officials and, when necessary, turning over their own to royal authorities.

23. Clay Phantom

A malicious collection of spirits, united behind one mask. In studying the arcane, many mages stumble upon a seemingly innocent rite with an unfortunate side effect: its caster’s spirit may be incapable of properly moving on to the next life. How many wrathful spirits form a single Clay Phantom is unknown, but the consensus is that it’s a surprisingly large number.

A cave-dwelling, heavily armored, chitinous creature. The Armor Mite is actually two creatures: an Ogre Crab and the fleshy, bipedal victim (usually a man) it has repurposed as its torso half.

Putrescent lord of the Mire of Stench. This hideous, foul creature is said to have emerged from an alchemical experiment once conducted by a Woodswraith alchemist with more ambition than caution.

52. Spindlebeast

Another of the Architect’s salt-built abominations. Back on the continents, Salt Alkymancy is a thing of horrible fables: stories of undying sorcerers perched in storm-battered, impassable towers, molding the icy heart of the sea itself into bizarre, nightmarish thralls.

54. The Bloodless Prince

A massive, three-faced clay thing, said in secret to house the spirit of Tam In, brother of Quan In. Rumor holds that the creature was once the size of a man, but gradually built itself up from earth, choosing to bear three faces to better allow The Three to better bestow it with wisdom. Quan In is said to have both loved and hated this monstrosity, and his reliance on a thing he so reviled could have driven him mad.

The skeletal revenant of Quan In, Sun King of Kulka’as. He presided over his realm during an era of unrivaled prosperity, but with each year’s bounty, his paranoia and despair increased more rapidly. Did it have something to do with the rumors about his long dead brother still having a hand in ruling the kingdom?

A lesser Kraekan. The Vexing Brat bears a passing resemblance to the Arrox, though they have nothing in common. Among sailors, Brats have the distinction of being blamed for everything, yet never seen. Leak in the hull spring up overnight? “Aye, vexed by a Brat in the night, sure enough.”

A Vexing Brat in its larval state. Vexing Brats are possibly the only creatures of Kraekan origin with what could be considered a life cycle: adult Vexing Brats feed on elemental energy, which they crystallize into blue egg-like things in their bellies, to be regurgitated, beginning the cycle anew.

Heavily armored mounted knight. On the continents, Dread Horsemen were a guard of brutish Dorian knights, and their tasks typically required them to maintain order in the occupied nation of Taenibir. A Dread Horseman on foot is still a highly formidable foe, and in the few cases when Birian rebels managed to unseat a Dread Horseman, they only successfully disarmed and captured one.

69. Clay Hybrid

A construct of the Ziggurat of Dust, likely crafted by Tam In, in his image. Its writhing body is that of a minor Kraekan, but because it is housed in clay and sealed by magic, it takes on a less malevolent role, doing little beyond tirelessly protecting its creator.

Order allows life to cycle through the sea, with birth, death, as threads in the grand tapestry of ocean; Salt Alkymancy is an unnatural perversion of this order.

78. The Coveted

A strangely sharp stone executioner’s axe. As the legend tells it, a royal executioner received it as a mysterious gift, and immediately took a liking to it. Power in the kingdom shifted, and before long, the executioner had used his axe on the entire royal family. Power shifted further, and the executioner became king. But the executioner never resigned from his grisly station, and the axe was well fed, though never satisfied.

How drop percentage is calculated is… not very straightforward. I’ll explain it as plainly as possible, as I understand it.

Each item on a monster’s drop table has a number assigned to it labeled “dropRate” that represents its chance to drop. I will hereby refer to this number as “drop value” to differentiate it from the player’s “drop rate” stat. If the game were to read this number directly, this is the percentage chance for the specific item to drop. However, the game instead uses a certain formula to multiply the player’s drop rate stat AGAINST this number, creating a lower actual chance for the item to drop. Written plainly, the formula looks like this:

Drop Rate รท (Drop Rate+200) x Drop Value = Actual Drop Chance

For a practical scenario that lets us put this into context (and understand how devastating this is), let’s say a player is farming A King’s Orders from a Crypt Keeper. A King’s Orders has a drop value of 10, and the player has 175 drop rate. To find the item’s actual drop chance, we add 200 to the player’s drop rate, giving us 375, which we then use to divide the unmodified drop rate of 175, giving us 0.4666666667. This is then multiplied by the assigned drop value of 10, and after chopping off the excess decimals gives us the actual drop chance of ~4.6%. The formula would look like this:

175 รท (175+200) x 10 = 4.666666667

… Yeah. You get 46% of the coded drop value. If you ever got frustrated farming endgame materials, this is what’s going on under the hood, and you’re not just unlucky. The drop chances really are just that low. It gets worse though! That was calculated with the drop rate a player would have with willpower softcapped at 50. A fresh player with the base drop rate of 40 gets approximately 16% of the coded drop value. Ever notice how long it takes to farm devotion items earlygame? And don’t think you’ll ever reach that full value with enough investment either! The formula forbids it, and the diminishing returns are harsh. At most you get around 79% of the drop value, assuming fully capped willpower and every possible modifier that can affect drop rate (Jester’s Crown/Guide’s Cap, Kismet Stone, Brightcoral Ring, Stone Guide). Sounds like a great improvement, but we’re talking hundreds of levels’ worth of pearls pumped into willpower, so…maybe don’t do that?

So aside from the existential horror, what’s a practical takeaway here?

I suppose a few useful breakpoints: 67, 120, and 200. These drop rates get you approximately 25%, 37.5%, and 50% of the coded drop value respectively, which equates to 10%, 15%, and 20% drop chance for “common” items that typically have a drop value of 40, which includes all remains used for creed devotion. If farming devotion earlygame, keep those first two breakpoints in mind, as they should be reasonably achievable to save time without derailing investment in your other stats too badly. Reaching 200 for practical endgame material farming is achievable as early as 43 willpower with all available drop rate modifiers (Jester’s Crown/Guide’s Cap, Kismet Stone, Brightcoral Ring, Stone Guide), and should be your minimum target before wasting a significant amount of time trying to do something like farming a Charred Tome from a Gravewalker (Do YOU want to farm something with less than a 2.5% drop chance?). Anything over that breakpoint is cake, but not worth investing into more than 50 willpower to gain, due to willpower granting only 1.5 drop rate after softcap.
