This page offers a walkthrough of the Treasures of River Exe quest found in the River Raids game mode. To access this quest, you’ll first need to complete the tutorial A River to Raid and also build the Jomsviking Hall. Then, when Vagn shows you the river raiding map, choose the River Exe to accept this quest.
Finding Saint George’s Armor
The goal of this quest is to find the two pieces of Saint George’s legendary armor somewhere on the River Exe. You’re told that the pieces will be found in larger military locations, so you can rule out monasteries and small camps.
You’ll notice on your second run on the River Exe that the places you raided during the tutorial are now labelled as pillaged, meaning you cannot raid them again until they are rebuilt which can take a while. This also encourages players to try new routes on the map so that you find other areas to raid.
You’ll also notice relatively early into your second journey on the River Exe that the military have put up makeshift barricades and defences across the river. The first one you’ll come by will be just past Keats Farm. You’ll need to shoot down the archers so that they don’t pose a threat to your crew. You can also just smash right through the wooden barricade across the river to carry on along your way.
The armor you will find on the River Exe are the Saint George’s Cape and the Saint George’s Tower Shield.
The armor spawns randomly within military locations, so we cannot give you the exact location of where it might spawn during your raid. However, there are areas that they are more likely to spawn in, since there are only a few large military locations. You’ll either need to head to Eastern Fortification, Western Fortification or Fortress on the Exe. Western Fortification and Fortress on the Exe are in the north west portion of the map, whereas Eastern Fortification is closer to the starting area and is also in the east. If you continued your tutorial raid and cleared Eastern Fortification then your armor will most likely spawn at the other two locations.
