  • Chest - A chest spawns and gives two pieces of equipment of masterwork rarity or higher and a Karka Shell or less often a Passion Flower. There is a chance to receive a third piece of equipment.


The Champion Settler Instigator is surrounded by neutral Settler Rioters. Be careful not to enrage the settlers while taking down the boss. The boss himself will turn the settlers aggressive.





Champion Settler Instigator: I'm done. Let's just sink the whole damned island and swim home.
Champion Settler Instigator: This is why the Consortium keeps us here—pest control.


  • If the Champion Settler is pushed too far away from his initial position, he will teleport to his original position.
  • Prior to this event's removal, a minor bug with the chests was present. Except when being opened, the reward chests were solid (could not be walked through) and would collise with the camera. When opening the chest the camera could slip through the chest.
