  • Unlike in most of the other regions where they can be found, Tech Hunters may start unprovoked fights with the player.
  • Roaming Garrus might be baited to attacking enemies garrisoning the Lost Armoury and the coastal Lost Library, distracting them enough to loot both places.
  • This region is a good place to find some of the early research artefacts. Looting all of the six Lost Libraries can net around 8 Ancient Science Books and 25 Books. Other paper loot includes around 75 Parchments, 40 Old Maps and 500-600 Damaged books that can be sold for over 23000 cats.
