Volcano Cave Location: How to Find It

Volcano Cave’s entrance is at the northern tip of the Mt. Gelmir area. For an easy way of reaching it, travel to the Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite, cross the bridge to the east, then head northward. The cave opening will be along the western wall and is guarded by a few Demi-Human enemies.

Volcano Cave: Walkthrough

The beginning of Volcano Cave houses some Cave Moss and an opening out to an illuminated area with five Demi-Human foes. Once you’ve wiped them out, look through the darkness to the northwest to find a passageway. Follow it to the end to get some Budding Cave Moss, Crystal Cave Moss, and a Golden Rune [6].

Next, drop down onto the ledge below where you’ll find a few more patches of Crystal Cave Moss. There are a handful of Demi-Human enemies here to take out, but they shouldn’t pose too much of a threat as long as you’re aware of the one brute among them. Take the path to the northeast when the coast is clear to find a lit cave chamber containing four more Demi-Human enemies, two of which are brutes. Wipe them all out to safely snag the Arteria Leaf, Coil Shield, and Sliver of Meat from the corpses.

Now, return to the ledge we dropped to earlier, and drop down to the ground floor to do battle with the large, lumbering Demi-Human. After emerging victorious from the valiant battle, pillage this chamber for some Cave Moss, Budding Cave Moss, and a handful Lumps of Flesh. With that done, all that remains is to head eastward where you’ll find the mist gate, beyond which the Demi-Human Queen Margot awaits.
