How to Get the Band of the Fanatic in Remnant 2: The Awakened King

You can get the Band of the Fanatic in Remnant 2: The Awakened King by listening to the entirety of the Dran leader’s speech while wearing the full Zealot Armor Set. Sounds quite easy, right? Well, to be frank, it actually requires at least two Adventure Mode runs.

The reason for this is because the Dran leader and his cohorts will turn hostile during your initial visit. You won’t obtain the Zealot Armor Set until much later, which means you’ll have no choice but to pass through the area.

Where to Find the Zealot Armor Set

You can find the Zealot Armor Set in the lone tower that’s adjacent to the Palace of the One True King. Go to the back exit of the palace, then cross the bridge that leads to the tower. Coincidentally, this is also Nimue’s location in the DLC.

While you’re outside the tower structure, you’ll spot several corpses hanging from the rafters. One of them is the corpse of a Ritualist. Simply shoot the rope with your weapon and pick up the loot to receive the gear pieces.

Returning to the Forlorn Coast for the Band of the Fanatic

As for the Remnant 2: The Awakened King Band of the Fanatic, you don’t really need to rush just to obtain it. I suggest spending some time looking for various items, as the Abyssal Hook, Elevated Ring, Ritualist Scythe, and Burden of the Departed. I myself explored most of the locations, especially the DLC-only dungeons so I could find new loot.

Now, assuming you’ve already got everything you want, simply return to Ward 13 and interact with the Worldstone. Choose to reroll your Adventure Mode run so that you’re back at the Forlorn Coast starting point.

Make sure that you’re wearing the full Zealot Armor Set, then make your way to the dockyard. Do not shoot anyone and don’t walk too close to the Dran leader. Instead, just wait for the Dran leader to finish his entire speech. Then, approach his location and chat with him to receive the Band of the Fanatic.

This particular ring has the following effect: Increases status effect damage by 25% and reduces status effect duration by 65%. This is quite viable, especially if you’re looking for the best Ritualist items.

That’s it: that’s how to get the Band of the Fanatic in Remnant 2: The Awakened King. For more tips and strategies, you can visit our R2 guides hub.
