Ancient Cairns (Rift)  

See also: Cairn Do, Puzzles

Ancient Cairns are stone piles mostly found on mountain ridges. The first time you open each Ancient Cairn you will get A Dusty Sack which will yield an uncommon, rare or epic quality item related to your level and some gold. If you open the same cairn again, you will receive A Dusty Sack which will yield at least one trash item worth 1  each. As of patch 1.2, A Dusty Sack has a level requirement appropriate to the zone in which the cairn is located.

More cairns can be found on the Cairn Do achievement page.
