The best place to hunt for Tanzaknights is southeast of Bloodleaf Bosque station in Cinderback Ridge, within the section covered in tall crags connected by rusty metal bridges and right next to the magma field. Tanzaknights randomly appear instead of Lethal armours, so the player can force an appearance by standing away from a Lethal armour just before the game's draw distance cuts it out of the frame and then rotating the camera until the precious gem monster appears.
