Having a high resistance to lightning is a godsend in this dungeon. Status ailments that restrict mobility is the worst thing you can encounter in the post-game dungeons since enemies will quickly swarm you while you're helpless to defend yourself.

Thunder Resistance is a Must-Have

Pale Cave 1.jpeg
You'll have a hard time here without Thunder resistance. Even regular Goblins on your path will be casting Thundaga, so if you don't have any resistance at all, you'll get paralyzed and become a punching bag. Even just a +1 resistance is enough to pull through in most situations, so be sure you have it first.

Possible to force through to the boss

▲Most enemies can be stopped with Blizzara

Pale Cave does not have any gimmicks to block your way, and it's possible to simply force your way through. By ignoring most of the enemies in your path, you can make it all the way to the boss.

If you don't have any Magic, the Boss will be a hard fight, so you may have to defeat some enemies to collect Magicite. But if you become able to win reliably, this method allows for grinding of high-level Scrolls and Materials.
