The Wetland Aspect is a moist mire found on Petrichor V and is part of the second set of Environments encountered in Risk of Rain 2. It consists mostly of ruined stone structures and swampy areas filled with water.

Monsters[edit | edit source]

Altar to N'kuhana[edit | edit source]

The Altar to N'Kuhana is a secret area in the Wetland Aspect Environment.

The challenge Her Concepts is completed in this environment. Under the cliff on the map, there is a gap where the player can enter which leads through a tunnel to the Altar to N'kuhana. The Altar to N'Kuhana consists of a large hole with a yellow skeleton dangling above it. Destroying the skeleton will complete the challenge unlocking N'kuhana's Opinion.pngN'kuhana's OpinionBgLegendary.pngN'kuhana's Opinion.pngFire haunting skulls when healed.
Store 100% (+100% per stack) of healing as Soul Energy. After your Soul Energy reaches 10% of your maximum health, fire a skull that deals 250% of your Soul Energy as damage.

Jumping into the pit below the skeleton will teleport the player back to the normal map area.

Newt Altars[edit | edit source]

The Newt Altars can spawn in several locations of the Wetland Aspect.

  1. In the deep water behind the smaller, large wall.
  2. Atop of the non-branch covered pillar near the center of the map.
  3. Behind a rock at the very end of the cliffside overlooking the map.
    • Normally accessible though a geyser behind a sometimes destroyed wall.

Yeah, I had to. I had no choice. Marion knew - and she was always so much stronger. So much stronger than all of us.

And it worked, it really did! Marion saved all of us. The dagger - it saved Pugh and Larsen and Dillon. Carney and Stevens.

But Pugh saw - he saw and he didn't understand. How could he? I tried to tell him - I ran over to him. But I couldn't convince him otherwise, and he was so crazy - so crazy! He wouldn't shut up and the golems were coming and the dagger - there was no choice.

Everyone was real somber that night. We lost Hitchcock and Marion and Pugh. Real somber. Later on, Carney found the book from a nearby chest. And it really all made sense - it did! I knew why Marion had that dagger and why I had to be the one to kill her. And Carney? He was too strong. I couldn't risk him not understanding. He wouldn't understand.

But Carney was big. Everyone else would've known. So that night, after I killed him, I went and took his body to the Altar. And I hid the Altar - right at the edge of the cliff, between two clusters of roots, in a cave underneath. And in that cave... I worshipped Her Concepts.

The rest? Well, they were so old and so tired. They were just gifts for N'kuhana. And She loved them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The internal development name for Wetland Aspect is Foggy Swamp.[1]
  • Bizzozeron, one of the developers of the game, said in the Risk of Rain 2 official Discord server that there existed an egg added into the new update. The egg was colorless, in a nest, and only on one of the main maps, not a secret map. On April 15th 2021, after an hour of searching for it, Vulfoof became the first person to find the new easter egg.
  • The eggs, being made of stone, sitting in a fern nest.

  • The location of the egg, located in a crack where the arrow is pointing towards.
