Farm Altaroth at the Flooded Forest

Flooded Forest
Outbreak of Altaroth 8 / 12 / 14
Outbreak of Ludroth 8 / 12 / 14
Outbreak of Wroggi 8 / 12 / 14
Normal Quest 8 / 12 / 14

Altaroth is present in most areas in the game, but it is recommended that you hunt them in the Flooded Forest. This is because their locations are often close to the Camp.

Outbreak of Altaroth means that a lot more Altaroth will spawn in the highlighted areas, so watch out for that!

Take note that Flooded Forest is accessible at Master Rank 2. Make sure to pick up some wirebugs along the way to travel faster!
