If you need more information then that, check out the guide!

You'll need to then find the boss Brabus. This is a random boss event on Earth, you will just need to luck into it, unfortunately. Once you do find this boss, he will ask you about the pocket watch. Tell him that Mud Tooth gave it to you, and he will ask for you to give it to him. Here's where you have to make your final choice. If you hand it over to him, he will give you the Bandit Armor. If not, you will fight. Keep in mind, if you don't have the watch on you, then this will be an immediate fight!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. On the void armor set there is a solution to the floor puzzle on one of the walls directly behind the building at the monolith crystal. Example:. On my playthrough mine was on the back of the wall to the right of the opening leading to the Undying King’s tower, tho I have seen it on the wall to the left of that same opening almost all of the way over.

    1. Edit:. The symbols on the wall are the same as the symbols on the tile equalling the direction that you have to go with each symbol equalling one floor tile.

  2. For anyone else wondering, I found the drifter’s helmet in the first dungeon, laying next to a skeleton. Seemed random.

    1. It’s random.. I found mine after the root mother hidden in a building..
