The puzzle where you have to solve two burial grounds w/ the elemental pillars has a big room at the end w/ 4 chests. Save before you open them.

The two outer edge chests have a skill book every single time. The other two give 2-4 items each, often w/ orange items and other skill books. Re-rolled this one many, many times, and left w/ 2 man at arms and 2 fire spells, plus orange tank shield and a few blues and greens. Great place to get early spells.

Awesome note, I tried it myself and got some nice early gear. For those having some trouble early on, I totally recommend trying to save-scum these chests.
