  • Note: As I had been a pure Might build when I arrived Castaway Cove for the first time, the armor piece that I had scavenged from the corpse nearby was The Leviathan's Shell.  The "Rare Find" armor piece for salvaging Merchant Vessel is possibly determined by what armor piece one have found on that corpse.  I am still trying to find a way to obtain The Leviathan's Shell, Corsiar's Shirt and The Magister's Boatcloak all together.

When on a mission it is possible that Zefwyn will be attacked, in which case he will deposit his loot somewhere and report its location to the Fateless One. Such locations will usually be guarded by stronger monsters.

There is also a small chance that Zefwyn will find a unique or set item instead.


  • Zefwyn will offer a random choice of 3 from the vessels stated above which he can explore.
    • The list can be changed by choosing "Not right now" and trying again.
  • Once the Fateless One decides where to send him, Zefwyn will head out.
  • He will return in a day with his results (or lack of thereof). The quest log will update when he is back.
    • If Zefwyn is chased away by monsters the location of his loot bag will be marked on the map (if you mark quest as active) after talking to him. This is in either the westernmost or easternmost part of the Northern Coast area, also next to Zefwyn's Camp.


  • The quest can be repeated as desired.
  • Sleeping for 9 hours is enough to trigger an update for this quest.
  • When sending Zefwyn to salvage a Gnomish Trireme there is a high chance he will rescue Bertrand Seznec, a master-level alchemy trainer. Bertrand will then offer his services in the courtyard.
    • Bertrand may also be rescued when salvaging a Alfar Warship or an Almain Sojourner (both similar case, cannot found him through several search attempts on Gnomish Trireme)
  • When sending Zefwyn to salvage a Warsworn Galley there is a high chance he will rescue Marten Strand a master-level stealth trainer. Marten will then offer his services in the main hall.
    • Marten Strand may also be rescued when salvaging a Traveler's Sloop or a Merchant Vessel.
  • There are three possible results for each salvaging attempt: "Regular Find", "Chased Away" and "Rare Find".  The results were already determined when you had chosen the place to salvage, only that the possible loot from "Regular Find" and "Chased Away" are determined when acquiring them.
  • "Rare Find" event may occurs after salvaging the same location for several times. Unlike the usual dialogues as you get usual loot (including unique armor, weapons and set pieces) Zefwyn would say that he founded anything useful on board but something special. If he gives the unique object, regardless how many times the game is reloaded, it won't change. And if the dialogue is the usual, no matter how many times the game is reloaded, you cannot acquire the unique item in the list above, you must send once again Zefwyn in the mision of the desired item.


  • IT has been reported that after obtaining a rare item, Zefwyn sometimes comes back with another rare item. However, nothing is given to the Fateless One.
