The Caverns is an area in Act 2. This area has a waypoint and is connected to The Northern Forest and The Ancient Pyramid.

There are two sections to this zone. The first is a linear cavern that occasionally branches off into smaller caves. The area then changes as you enter the base of the Ancient Pyramid. The waypoint is located at the mid-way point between these sections.



Items found in this area

The following drop-restricted items can drop in this area.

No items include this area in their drop restrictions.


The area has a crafting recipe for the crafted modifier (20-60)% increased Damage with Vaal Skills in a hidden room. The room can be accessed by clicking two pillars that appear adjacent to a wall in a small room. It always generates roughly in the middle of the square base floor of the pyramid and can be identified by two perpendicular broken walls in the room via the minimap. The door icon will not appear until the pillars are clicked.[1]

Version history

Version Changes
  • Added a myriad of small improvements and surprises to the Campaign. Fun encounters and secrets have been scattered throughout Wraeclast, though the fundamentals of the Campaign are still intact. On an totally unrelated note, the Crafting Recipe unlock for Movement Speed - Rank 1 can now be found in The City of Sarn.
  • A new Crafting Recipe unlock for increased Damage with Vaal Skills has been added to The Caverns, which is located in a newly added hidden room. [Undocumented This change was not documented by any official sources. It was discovered through player testing or datamining.]
  • Masters, including Zana, no longer have Reputation levels. Features such as crafting bench options are, as a result, no longer unlocked by grinding master missions, and are instead unlocked by encountering specific locations, situations or completing specific objectives.
  • The Crafting Recipe for Movement Speed - Rank 1 is located in The Caverns. [Undocumented This change was not documented by any official sources. It was discovered through player testing or datamining.]
