Dangers[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Bring high level mounts to handle the Direbear.png Direbears in the first part of the cave, though they have a low aggro range, so can be bypassed fairly easily.
  • Riot Chestpiece.png Riot Armor or Fur Chestpiece.png Fur Armor with fabricated weapons
  • Metal Shield.png Metal or Riot Shield.png Riot Shields: See below.
  • Fria Curry.png Fria Curry to help against the extreme cold.
  • Wearing an Otter.png Otter, with a high melee damage stat, will help a lot against the cold.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On unofficial servers that allow cave fliers, the first part of the cave is trivial and scattered with blue and yellow Loot Crates. You can easily maneuver around the Direbear.png Direbears and obtain the loot quickly while on the back of a Pteranodon.png Pteranodon, Argentavis.png Argentavis, Griffin.png Griffin, or even the Wyvern.png Wyvern. However, be warned that Direbear.png Direbears up to about level 500 can be found in this cave and can deal tremendous damage if angered.
  • Once past the Direbear.png Direbears, you will have to trek the rest of the way on foot or bring an army of very small creatures.
  • Grappling Hook.png Grappling Hooks can not be used in this cave. However, Grappling Hook.png grappling hooks from mods (such as Reusable Grappling Hook) do not suffer this restriction.
  • At first glance one would be expected to think that this cave would be extremely difficult due to Deathworm.png Deathworms with 20,000 Health.png Health. However, the Iceworm.png Iceworm Males only have 1700 Health.png Health. The best method of approach to the second part of the cave is to have someone carry high-quality Metal Shield.png Metal or Riot Shield.png Riot shields, aggro the worms with the shield up, then have someone move in with a Pump-Action Shotgun.png shotgun or other high-dps weapon to deal the damage. Iceworm.png Iceworms can't damage someone holding up a shield against them. Watch the shield durability though!
  • Red loot crates exist deep within the cave, making them harder to get to than the others.
  • The exit to the cave appears to be a one-way path that leads out of a waterfall into a pond down beneath. While not required, it may be preferred to bring a Parachute.png parachute.
  • It is advisable to set a flier at the mouth of the pond you fall into, as otherwise leaving the massive basin will be tedious and require going all the way to the beach
  • This cave is an excellent place to bring a Thylacoleo.png thylacoleo if fliers are unavailable, as they are capable of entering through either entrance and their combination of climbing and high melee damage enables them to fight or evade the Direbear.png direbears
  • The entrances have an incredible amount of wind noise
  • Creepily, there are, scattered throughout the tunnels, the frozen bodies of past adventurers. In the chamber of the Iceworm Queen, frozen corpses of many dinosaurs are piled everywhere.
