The Shipwreck of the Empress is located in the western portion of the Wildlands region within the Sundering Sea. The Rusty Dagger can be found by searching the shipwreck and finding one of the golden chests.
|Rusty Bow||You must first defeat the Behemoth located in the Sinking Ruins of Toto’haha in order to obtain the Rusty Bow. Remember that this monster will petrify your party members, so make sure you have enough Herb-of-Grace-Buds in your inventory.|
Visit the Black Market in New Delsta Flats, Brightlands, and buy some Herb-of-Grace-Buds.
You can find the Sinking Ruins in Toto’haha between the Nameless Village and the Southern Nameless Village Traverse. There’s an entrance to the ruins on the west side.

|Rusty Polearm||Make your way to Timberain, Leaflands, to get the Rusty Polearm. You’ll be challenged to a duel by a guard in the western part of the castle. You need to use Path Actions to get the Legendary Arms Exorcising Bow before engaging in combat.|
