Just as promised, caves were added to the game on Monday, 10th of June. I’ve spent the past two days, running around, harvesting new plants and seeking treasure chests. I’ve also spent the last two days lost.
Caves are very disorienting. It’s certainly added a new dimension to the game (pun intended) along with new goodies to craft, resources to harvest and potions to brew. It’s a great sneak peek at how rich the crafting system will be when the game is fully realised.
Treasure chest hunting is the name of the game. When opened, the chests give all sorts of goodies, ores, gems, potions, and items ranging from props, already in game, to clothing to legendary bracelets of bounding (a version of the lunar bracelet). Chests also give lightstones for traversing those dark, dark caves and for building on one’s claim at night. They are consumable but last one hour.
Don’t take my word for it, instead let our intrepid reporter, BuzWeaver, the man entirely responsible for getting me lost down a dark hole today, give you the skinny on the additions with this patch.
