St. Rona used to be a popular tourist spot and has a unique natural scenery. This all changed after a volcanic eruption which turned it into desolated ruins. However, it’s an ideal place for gatherers as it’s enriched with an abundance of resources. You can find them anywhere, be it in the forest, the salty wasteland, or the grotto.

 

Overview of the Map

  • Volcanic Eruption: St. Rona is located next to a volcano. The volcano erupts from time to time, so you need to watch out for red-hot magma and burning lava that is heading towards you.
  • Encounter Quests: When you’re at certain locations, a dialogue from NPC will pop up on the bottom right of your screen. If you would like to participate in the Encounter Quests, tap on it and the Quest will be included to be tracked.
  • Suburban Jungle (Level 1): You can log, mine, and gather hemp here. Beware of the pack of wolves roaming around the area.
  • Abandoned Village (Level 2): There are some abandoned houses where you can enter to retrieve chests left behind. Beware of the burning Infected that may be lurking inside those houses.
  • Salty Wasteland (Level 3): These are hot springs area where you can take a dip and relax or take out your fishing rod and do some fishing.
  • St. Rona City (Level 4): The buildings in this area are swallowed mid-way by the dried up lava from the erupted volcano. When the volcano erupts again, you don’t want to be on the ground. Be sure to climb up to the rooftop of those buildings as lava may come pouring all over the area.
  • Mysterious Grotto (Level 5): This cave is dangerous as there are flame monsters and burning infected. However, there are some amazing goodies (Tactical fenders) to be found inside the cave.

You can select the map level based on the resources you would like to gather in this map. Higher-level maps give you richer resources and more difficult enemies. Please ensure your gathering and combat level are at an appropriate level.

St. Rona Exploration Chests

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.
