Locations where the Krewe Researcher can be found.

Krewe Researcher the Cryptobotanist is a unique vendor in The Silverwastes who will trade you Bandit Crests for any Mordrem parts you've extracted. He can be found in one of six different locations throughout the zone, and he teleports between them every thirty minutes on a fixed rotation.

He will always exchange any Mordrem part for 15 Bandit Crests. However, in each location, he will offer 25-35 Bandit Crests for one particular type of Mordrem Part. Thus, for best Bandit Crest return, it is advised to only trade parts for 25-35 crests each and wait for the Cryptobotanist to change location to exchange all your parts.

Locations[edit]

He moves through these six locations every 30 minutes in the given order. He repeats the rotation every 3 hours.
