The Ancient Cavern is where the guardians of the gods reside, with the exception of Krasaun.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Unlike other dimensions which generate randomly, the Ancient Cavern is a unique large temple structure with spawners and boss chambers. The Ancient Cavern Realmstone.png Realmstone for the Ancient Cavern is dropped by Angelicas, Bloodsuckers, Flower Faces, and Rock Critters, the latter four of which spawn in the main room of this dungeon.

The player cannot place any blocks in the Ancient Cavern besides torches. Attempting to do so will trigger a message saying,"A magical force prevents you from placing the block.", and prevent the block from being placed. This includes usage of Flint and Steel and buckets.

Generation[edit | edit source]

The Ancient Cavern is a large temple with fixed generation. The player spawns in the main room, which has spawners for the mobs Angelica, Bloodsucker, Flower Face, and Rock Critter. Unlike in the other dimensions, the return portal does not generate where the player spawns, but rather attached to the formation in the middle of the room.

From the main room extends four hallways with shrines, that can be used to teleport to special chambers where the player can fight the Bosses Coniferon, Penumbra, Horon, and Goldorth. The shrines can only be used if the player has reached level 70 in certain skills and has a full tribute bar for the corresponding god.

The temple itself (as well as the four boss rooms) float above the Void, though the Void cannot be reached because the Ancient Tiles that make up the temple are indestructible.
