Hello, and welcome to my guide for Salt and Sanctuary. Since there are currently no guides up for this particular game, I thought I might try to do my first ever full-walkthrough in hopes to harness some of the various information. The game itself doesn't describe much about how a lot of things work, and there are mechanics that may confuse players due to the lack of description and a formal tutorial.

Note: This guide is going to cover the game as of patch version 1.03. (Ver. 1.03.A at the title screen).

I will be starting this guide with that patch, as it is the most current. Changes may or may not be made depending on the patch, as there may be patches while I am writing, as well as patches long after the guide has been completed. All readers should be aware of their current patch, and this guide may not properly reflect future patches.

However, I do not abide by using any particular glitch or exploit in order to complete this game (and I'm not sure if any exist for this particular game). I will never recommend any exploit that may be patched later.
