However, on some maps this door is bugged and won’t even open at night. On working maps you can interact with the door and tell them the password is password. Otherwise use the LFG tool and try and get ferried into a working map.
Go up stairs and you will find it behind the corner of a bed.
28. Eastern Ward – Find this thirsty karka in the Lion’s Shadow.

45. Sharkmaw Caverns – Scour the dark, misty corners.
After the initial fall down the waterfall in Sharkmaw JP, swim out to the water (instead of running up following the JP) and look up to catch the karka. I would equip a fall damage reduction trait if you have it to survive the fall (they made the fall harder).
46. Sharkmaw Cavern Someone swore they saw a karka walk through a wall.
This karka is in the maze section of the jumping puzzle. Once you are inside the maze, take a left and keep going. You will go past the first fake wall and then keep going until you reach the 2nd fake wall. The karka is inside the 2nd fake fall (look down when you are inside the fake wall).
47. Sharkmaw Cavern – Search for the showering karka.
Finish the maze and just before you enter the section with the traps, look behind the waterfall (the top waterfall, not the bottom one). It is the waterfall right before you enter the traps section, not the waterfall that you encounter right after you finish the maze. s
