  • This small cave only becomes available once you have downloaded the Knights of the Nine official download. It is inaccessible until after the test against the Forest Guardian at the Grove of Trials during the quest Nature's Fury.
  • This cave contains 10 Flax plants, 7 Green Stain Shelf plants, 5 Summer Bolete plants and 14 Viper's Bugloss plants.
  • This location provides the single largest source of Green Stain Shelf Cap in the game: there are eight of the plants surrounding the cave entrance (without Knights of the Nine, there are only 24 such plants in the entire game).
