Lairs are mini-dungeons found in Zones out in Sanctuary that reward you with Normal Gems such as Aquamarine, Citrine, Ruby, Sapphire, Topaz, or Tourmaline. Find Lairs, complete Tasks, and defeat the boss at the end each day in order to maximize your Normal Gem gains with this guide!
The hardest part of getting the rewards from Lairs is finding them in the first place. The spawn points for Lairs are rare and difficult to find, especially if you don't know where to look. Thankfully, the entrances to Lairs themselves are not completely random locations, but instead spawn in specific locations around the world. Click here and use our World Map to find every Lair location in the game!
Lairs can spawn up to 3 at a time in one Zone. Once a Lair is spawned, it takes 10 minutes to despawn. Any despawned Lair will respawn at a different location in the same zone. So if you can't find a Lair, don't give up! Keep searching and one will eventually respawn!
Each Lair has several Tasks to complete. Always stop for these Tasks and complete them because they give you a Rank 1 Normal Gem! These tasks are never difficult to deal with, and do a good job of breaking up the dungeon so you are not just rushing to the end to kill the boss. You can't find higher Rank Normal Gems 1 from these Tasks.
A Lair boss awaits at the end of a floor. These are mini bosses with a ton of health that reward you with a Rank1 Normal Gem. You can't find higher Rank Normal Gems than from these Bosses. Once you defeat the boss, there is a 50% chance for a Red Portal to spawn. Don't take the Blue Portal -- Take the Red Portal! If you are lucky enough to get this Red Portal, it gives you an ENTIRE SECOND FLOOR of a Lair!
Lair Second Floor
A Blacksmith is conveniently place at the start of the second floor. Stop and salvage your items, even if your inventory is not full! This is one of the best ways to salvage your items without interrupting the flow of your quests in the entire game. Otherwise, this second floor functions the same as the first floor with Lair Tasks and the Lair Boss. Unfortunately, there isn't a chance for a third floor to spawn.
