There are 8 exploration chests in St. Rona map. Apart from the volcano eruptions and flame monsters, this map is fairly easy to play. The chests are also easy to locate with the exception of the final two which you may run into slight difficulty in locating it.

1st Chest: Fool’s Dock

This is located underwater near the pier at the bottom centre of the map.

2nd Chest: Empty Settlement

There are 10 houses in the Abandoned Village map. It’s upstairs on the 2nd floor is one of the abandoned houses.

3rd Chest: Sea Bay Star

This chest is located underwater at the bottom left of the map. You’ll need to search for it around the area as the location may be random.

4th Chest: Silent Greatness

This chest is located at the ledge of the monument at the town area. Get onto one of the 4 platforms at its side. Use ammo box or barricade to gain better leverage to jump over to the center piece.

5th Chest: Broken Wall

Near the Suburban Jungle, you’ll find a ruin with broken walls. The chest is located on the broken wall.

6th Chest: Speed Challenge

This chest is located at the rocky areas at the hillside on the right of the map next to the lake. You’ll need to jump up the rocks to locate it.

7th Chest: Grotto Treasure

This is located either in the pool or on the broken wooden walkway in the cave of Mysterious Grotto. The cave is crawling with flame monsters and infected, be extra careful. You don’t need to engage with them, just hide and run from them.

8th Chest: Lava Ash

This is the toughest bit! You’ll need to get close to where the volcano erupts. It’s located on the roof of those sunken buildings. I can’t pinpoint the exact spot because it’s so random. It took me about 3 attempts of over 10-15 minutes each time going from one building to another to look for it. Be careful when the volcano erupts so you don’t fall into the hot lava.

Levin City's Dawn District is part of Levin City so the Infected here are of a similar level of Levin City. If your combat level is below 70, you won't be able to access the map. The recommended level is 70-79 and even that, it can be quite challenging. I would advise...
