Zone 1: Capstone CaveEdit

Capstone Cave

Upon entering you will encounter a typical bandit camp in the first open area containing three enemies, a locked chest and a bedroll at b. Heading down the right hand tunnel leads to a dead end with three chests scattered around the room. Head to the left to progress through the cave, where you will find one or two bandits and a chest. To the south is a dead end with a cave in trap at F. Continuing on into the cave, the next area will contain more opposition and more minor loot. To the right is the door to the second zone, while the northern tunnel leads to yet another room with a chest. Careful when walking up though; at the end of the short tunnel is a Pressure Plate (E) that will trigger a Swinging Mace at D. Finally, enter the second zone Capstone Great Cavern through door C.

Zone 2: Capstone Great CavernEdit

Capstone Great Cavern

This zone welcomes you with a pressure plate triggering a Swinging Mace trap at G. Your main objective, the boss chest at B, is located on an upper level of the main cave, high above the bandit camp below. To reach it, it is necessary to go through most of the cave; head north through the only available tunnel to the upper level, then clockwise around the upper level of the main cave. While traversing the upper section, there are two Rotten Plank traps at D, that will break if you walk over them. Right next to the boss chest is a Swinging Log trap triggered by a pressure plate right after the last rotten plank. Claim the contents from the chest, then backtrack all the way to door C and reenter Capstone Cave.
