Salt Giant’s Spawn Location in Lost Ark

The Salt Giant is found in the Saland Hill area of Lost Ark. It is located in the central part of the area. You will find the Saland Hills on the Aregal Salt Plains. If you’re going through the area, chances are you might not find Salt Giant there to fight. That is because the Salt Giant, like other World Bosses, spawns every 30 minutes.

If you come to the spawn area and the Salt Giant is nowhere to be found, then you have two options. You will have to wait for Salt Giant to respawn so you can kill it and progress further in the story.

While you’re waiting for the Salt Giant to respawn, make sure that you’re hanging around in the spawn area. That way, when the Salt Giant respawns, you’ll be there to fight it before some other player comes and steals your turn.

You can change to another channel if you don’t want to wait for another 30 minutes to fight the Salt Giant. There, check out if the Salt Giant has spawned so you can fight it. To check, the gound will have a red mark that indicates that the Salt Giant is near. Go to him and fight him.

Strategy to Defeat Salt Giant

The Salt Giant is a level 19 boss. But don’t let that deceive you; he is still a powerful boss, as he is one of the ‘World Bosses’. Don’t compare this world boss to regular bosses of dungeons and islands.

Salt Giant has a whopping 10 Million HP.

Okay, so you’ve made it to Salt Giant’s Spawn Location and have started the fight with him. But how to defeat this World Boss? For that, you need a strategy that ensures that, in the end, you’ll be the one standing instead of the Salt Giant.

For the strategy to fight the Salt Giant, you need to remember a few things first. All of Salt Giant’s attacks are at the front, so you can sneak behind it to attack it. But that won’t kill him, as he has a humongous 10 Million HP. This makes the fight a lot harder, and it is a long and drawn-out fight.

With that in mind, you must remember that you shouldn’t try to finish it quickly. Because if you try to do so, you’ll end up getting killed while trying to complete your combo. Just take it slow because none of his attacks have any stuns or debuffs. And he is quite slow with his attacks.

Anyways, the best strategy to defeat Salt Giant in Lost Ark will be to go with a party because Lost Ark’s bosses are designed such that they won’t focus on one character all the time. Their focus player will change from time to time. Use it to get behind him while he’s focusing on another player.

Attacks

Salt Giant has large AoE attacks, and if you fail to dodge them, the salt giant can take you out in a few hits. Before the fight, you should read their detail, so you’re ready to dodge them even before the fight starts.

  • Ground Pounce: During the attack, Salt Giant will wind up and then punch the ground.
  • Salt Rain: A red AOE circle appears around Salt Giant. In the circle, large chunks of salt rocks will rain down.
  • Salt Sprinkler: Using this attack, Salt Giant will outstretch his palm. From his palm, he will shoot a spray of salt. The salt does residual damage to the player.
  • Swiping Punch: It is the basic melee attack of Salt Giant. During the attack, he winds up and then swings his fist in the air in front of him.

Ability

Salt Giant uses a special ability. The ability is known as Damage Amplification. As the name suggests, the ability is a buff that increases Salt Giant’s attack damage. But it also increases the damage received by 6 percent.

These are the Attacks and Abilities used by Salt Giant. Anyways, before you start the fight, make sure to Increase All Virtues of your character to have an easy time fighting him. If your level is way above Salt Giant, then taking him Solo won’t be a problem. Check out the Lost Ark Faster Leveling Up Guide for that.

If you’re going to take out Salt Giant solo, then check out our Best Solo Classes guide. This way, you’ll know how your class will be against the world boss. We have prepared a build guide for almost every class. Check out Best Sorceress, Wardancer, Deadeye, and Scrapper build guides. You can read more about them and the rest of the classes in our All Lost Ark Classes guide.

Defeating the Salt Giant in Lost Ark

Salt Giant is the perfect boss to begin with. If you attack slowly and steadily, you’ll get the “Boss Hunter: Novice” achievement in no time.

Although his attacks are quite powerful, you can dodge them easily. Move your player in the clockwise direction around Salt Giant, and attack him when his back is towards you. This way, you’ll be able to learn his attack pattern.

Once you feel that you’re confident with it, go all out. But again, you shouldn’t forget that Salt Giant is one of the ‘World Bosses’. If you make one mistake, chances are you’ll have to restart the whole fight.

Get a few tanks classes, like Destroyer or Paladin build, at your party for the Salt Giant’s fight. That way, even if the Salt Giant gets to hit them, they won’t die in one shot like the high DPS characters. Taking them to the Salt Giant’s fight in Lost Ark would be your best bet at winning the fight.

Taking Shadowhunter build in your party will be beneficial thanks to the class’s high mobility and fast attacks.

Salt Giant’s Lore in Lost  Ark

Okay, so you’ve defeated the Salt Giant at his spawn location in the lost ark. You might be wondering who Salt Giant was in Lost Ark’s lore. The lore of Salt Giant is that of sacrifice. And due to this sacrifice, he became so twisted that you have to kill him to save the Yudia region.

Here’s how the lore goes. Hundreds of years ago, Salt Giant was one of the Elementals. The noble elemental used its powers to defend the Yudia region from evil. When things got worse and Encavia collapsed, The Elemental absorbed the darkness. And then, it buried itself into the earth to remove darkness from the world.

After a long time, the Elemental re-emerged. Over time, the darkness that it had absorbed made it twist. It is now known as the Salt Giant that terrorizes the Yudia region. And now, for the fallen hero, slaying it would be an act of kindness.

Summary

So that was the location at which Salt Giant spawns in Lost Ark. While fighting him, you must be careful and don’t rush things. That is because the Salt Giant has a 10 Million health. Make a powerful party that has a few tanks and try to play it slowly.
