Star Wars Jedi Survivor Riverbed Watch Essence is a collectible you can find to increase your maximum health in the video game developed by Respawn Entertainment.
The collectible is also mandatory if you’re aiming for 100% completion in Riverbed Watch, the medium-sized area near Southern Reach.
The problem is that the Essence is pretty hard to reach because it is located high on a cliff that you have to jump on from a spot in Southern Reach, and you also must have the Dash Ability unlocked.
But as always, we’re here to help, and throughout the following guide, we’ll explain how to get to the SW Jedi Survivor Riverbed Watch Essence collectible.
Koboh Riverbed Watch Essence Location Map
First, you should check the map below where we’ve marked the exact location of the said Essence and also the spot in Southern Reach from where you must make the jump to the collectible.
Note that if you want all Essence collectibles to be marked on your own map, you can actually get the Essences Locations Display Map Upgrade (refer to this puzzle solution).
Now we’ll guide you to the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Riverbed Watch Essence starting from the Southern Reach Meditation Point.
Essence #1 (Health Essence): Next To A Couple Of Crates
Once you reach the saving point at the beginning of the Southern Reach area, go forward, and when you get to the edge, you should see a waterfall on your right and a wall covered with vines in front.
You need to make your way to the wall covered with vines, but you should go around because if you drop from here, you’ll die.
You can also mount the nearby SW Jedi Survivor Relter (big bird) to get down faster.
Climb the wall when you reach it, cross the gap with the help of the two metal bars, and continue through the pools of water to get to the edge.
You now need to cross to the other side using the rope in front.
So jump, use the force to grab the rope (/ on PlayStation/Xbox), and jump again to get on the other side.
Then advance to reach the edge of the mountain at the spot marked on our map above.
As you can see in the following screenshot, you now have to jump on the roof of the structure in front of you (on the lower cliff).
The trick is to jump as far as you can, fall for a second, then jump again and Dash (/) the rest of the distance to the roof.
Now drop to the lower section of the roof and look for the Essence to find it next to a couple of crates.
If you look carefully at the previous image, you can see the Riverbed Watch Chest on the other side of the Essence. Also, there is a shortcut nearby that you can unlock to get here faster next time.
Now that you’ve obtained the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Riverbed Watch Essence, you can look for the four Databanks in the same area or refer to our Wiki Hub Page here for other collectibles and puzzles.
