Fallen Order guide: Dathomir chests and secrets locations map

Every chest and secret on Dathomir in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

In this Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order guide, we’ll show you how and where to find every chest and secret location on Dathomir’s map.

You won’t be able to access every area, open every chest, or reach every secret on your first trip to Fallen Order’s planets. Exploration, leveling up, and backtracking with your new skills are part of the design.

Given that, we’ve organized our collectibles guides based on the powers and abilities that you need to access chests and secrets. The first section below covers your first visit. Subsequent sections cover return trips, when you can reach once unreachable items.

Dathomir first visit


Since you can go to Dathomir quite early in the game (though we don’t really suggest you do), we’ll assume that on your first visit, you only have the wall run ability. We’ll focus only on the chests and secrets you can get with that in this first section.

There are two chests in the Upper Strangled Cliffs. You’ll be able to open one of them if you only have wall run (see below for the second one).

Chest 1 // BD-1 skin

Fight your way through the bane back spiders, and up and to the right of the Upper Strangled Cliffs. This chest is on a ledge all by itself.

There are two chests and one secret in Brother’s Bastion on Dathomir. Assuming you can survive the fights against the tough enemies here, you can pick them all up with only the wall run ability.

Chest 1 // Mantis paint job

As you fight your way through the Nightbrothers in Brother’s Bastion, you’ll find this chest on a walkway outside. It’s right along the main path, so it’s hard to miss.

Chest 2 // Lightsaber switch

Shortly after the first chest, you’ll drop into a large building. This chest is on the floor level, just to the left of the exit.

Secret 1 // Life essence

Continue along the tunnel to the right of the workbench in Brother’s Bastion. Climb up the wall at the end, and you’ll find this secret on a ledge outside.

After Zeffo // Tomb of Miktrull


The story won’t point you to Dathomir until you’ve completed the Tomb of Miktrull on Zeffo. For the remaining chests and secrets, we’ll assume that you have all of the abilities that lead you to that point: Force push, Force pull, and BD’s scomp link.

There is only one secret to find in the Strangled Cliffs. You’ll need Force push to reach it.

Secret 1 // Life essence

To reach this secret, you’ll technically need to start in the Upper Strangled Cliffs. Walk along the narrow walkway away from the Mantis until you’re just past the locked door on your left. Turn left and look for a Force pushable box. (This step is the first two images in the gallery above.)

Push the box back into the room there two times, until it reaches the back. Then, push it to the left so it falls into the hallway below.

Push the box two more times until it reaches the doorway end of the hall. Climb on top, and use the vines(?) to climb up and around the wall. You’ll drop off the other side behind the locked door (that you can unlock from this side), right next to this secret.

There’s one more chest in the Upper Strangled Cliffs. You might’ve spotted it earlier, but you need the scomp link to unlock it.

Chest 1 // Lightsaber emitter

This locked chest is behind a wall near the top of the Upper Strangled Cliffs. You’ll have to fight a few back bane spiders to reach it.

Collapsed Settlement chest map

There is only one chest to pick up in the Collapsed settlement.

Chest 1 // Power and Control lightsaber sleeve

After Brother’s Bastion, you’ll slide down into the Collapsed Settlement. Once you climb back up to the top of the area, just before you exit, look for a elevator platform. Ride it down to unlock a shortcut and find this chest.

Nightbrother Village chest map

There is one chest to pick up in the Nightbrother Village.

Chest 1 // Aphelion Mantis paint job

When you enter the Nightbrother Village, clear out the enemies, and then look to the platforms on the left. There is a pushable box at the top. Climb up to that box, and Force push the box back down the stairs. Push it again against the wall where you’ll find some ledges to climb up. Head through the window, and drop into the hallway on the other side. Take out the Nightbrother, and turn right for this chest.

After you pull down the bridge in the Nightbrother Village, you’ll open a path underneath into the Nightbrothers Dungeon. There are two chests to collect there.

Chest 1 // Vagabond poncho material

Underneath the bridge in Nightbrother Village, you’ll find a beam you can crawl across. On the other side, you’ll find the Nightbrother Dungeon. Inside, turn left, and head into the attached room. This chest will be in an alcove on the right.

Chest 2 // Dolovite lightsaber material

From chest 1, head back through the first room of the dungeon. Through the door, look to your left for this chest.

Swamp of Sacrifice chests map

There are three chests in the Swamp of Sacrifice.

Chest 1 // Power and Control lightsaber emitter

Continue forward past the meditation circle in the Swamp of Sacrifice. Take out the nydak there. This chest is along the edge of the cliff.

Chest 2 // Savannah poncho material

From chest 1, turn right and make your way across the arena. This chest is on the cliff edge.

Chest 3 // Power and Control II lightsaber switch

In the center of the large arena-like area where you fought the nydak and found both earlier chests, look for a stone ramp that leads back toward the meditation circle. Run up, and jump to the branch above. Turn left, and then take the right fork. Continue onto another branch, and jump over the large tree trunk to find the third chest.

Witches Horn chest and secret map

There is one chest and one secret in Witch’s Horn. You’d be forgiven for missing them on your first visit here, since it’ll be in the middle of your battle with Gorgara.

Chest 1 // Day of the Dianoga BD-1 skin

From the meditation circle in Witches Horn, climb the tall rock wall. At the top, walk straight through the door and up the stairs ahead of you at the top. This chest is in the room there.

Secret 1 // Force essence

At the top of the same rock wall where you find the stairs to chest 1, turn right.

Nightmare Ruins chests and secret map

There are four chests and one secret in the Nightmare Ruins.

Chest 1 // Smuggler Mantis paint job

Inside the first room of the Nightmare Ruins, take an immediate right. This chest is in the corner.

Chest 2 // Myrmidon BD-1 skin

Facing the front entrance of the Nightmare Ruins, turn right. Uses the walls to run over to another platform. Your first time here, you’ll have to face the alpha nydak. Continue across the platform to slide and wall run to another platform. You’ll be able to see this chest below you.

Chest 3 // Homestead poncho material

From chest 2, continue wall running some more. You’ll come to an area full of various enemies. Handle them, and then turn to the right to find this chest.

Chest 4 // Outlaw outfit material

From chest 3, continue following the path ahead of your as it loops back around toward the entrance to the Nightmare Ruins. Near the end of this path, you’ll pass a gap in the wall on your right where you can see some stairs. Continue past to find this chest.

Secret 1 // Stim canister upgrade

From chest 4, head back to the gap in the wall, and jump across to the stairs. Turn left, and climb up the vine wall you find there. At the top, look for a branch to follow on your left. You’ll find this secret, a stim canister upgrade for BD, at the other end.
