There are four types of hidden locations:

  1. Hidden under a rock
  2. Hidden by crates (stack)
  3. Hidden by crates that have to be destroyed with a Tree Branch (The Springer's or Raptor's engage skill will also work)
  4. A series of checkpoints

The first three hidden caches require the player to pick up an unmarked object. Either the rock itself, a tree branch from a stack of wood with which the nearby crates have to be destroyed or a crate itself, which in return has to be stacked on other nearby crates. Completing each challenge reveals a previously hidden Glorious Canthan Chest.

Objective Map Location Closest landmark Type Notes


  • There is a distinct audio and visual clue when near a hidden location. The audio clue is part of the environment, so turning up the master volume and environment volume to a maximum but turning off the music, effects and dialog volumes (there are a lot of map-wide NPC dialogs in Dragon's End) helps a lot with locating the hidden caches.
