Ancient Ruins Must Contain Treasure
Discover all 34 Puzzle Ruins.
Overview Tab mentions 42 regular puzzle locations, but the achievement asks for 34 and the map has 36 marked locations. Some not counting for the achievements as you need to find all 36 to unlock this achievement. You don't need to finish them to get the achievement, you only need to find them. This achievement is easily missable as Mucktock Swamp area unlocks only if you progressed on Ebren's Quest.
Please Be Aware:
- Each chest at Puzzle Ruins hold 1 Quartz. Make sure you loot it.
