Where to find a Rancor

There are several Rancors that can be found in the game, but the first one you can find is in the Sodden Grotto. Head to the Rambler’s Reach outpost and pick up the Find Missing Prospectors rumor. This rumor will have to follow the trail to the caves where a Rancor has been reported to be causing trouble.

Another rancor can be found in the Phon’qi Caverns in the Foothills Falls area. This one’s lair is pretty close to the area where you can find the map upgrade: chests.

How to defeat a grudge

The best strategy to defeat a Rancor is to keep your distance and never go crazy when attacking. They are relatively easy to tell and their size can give the impression that they move slowly, but they can perform their attacks quickly, not to mention have long ranges. Being too greedy during an opening can get you hit with the next attack just as easily.

The safe way to approach the fight is to trade blows. Each attack from a Rancor has a good 2-3 second window that you can use to attack or reposition yourself to a safe distance. During this window, you can only attack once or twice before it recovers its position and makes its next attack. You can try to be more aggressive by using your blocking abilities to stay at saber height for longer, but this is risky and can get messy very quickly.

The attacks to be careful of are the unlockables like Earth Smash or Lunge Grab. However, if you keep a safe distance, you will be able to see these incoming attacks and have plenty of time to react to them. Both attacks have a linear direction, so a simple side step at the right time will often do the trick to keep you from getting hit. The Dodge has some forgivable i-frames that should help avoid taking a hit.

There are bones in the den that you can grab and throw at the Rancor. If you time it right, you can place the bone in its jaws, giving you a few seconds to jump in and launch more attacks.

Once the Rancor is at its final 10%, you can perform a killing blow. After the first encounter with Rancor, you can get the Shatter buff that allows Cal to easily break through enemies’ block meter.
