Use Great Wirebugs To Travel Between Area 7 and Area 10

In Area 7 and Area 10, there are Jewel Lilies that you can place Great Wirebugs in. These Great Wirebugs are incredibly convenient for going back and forth between Area 7 and Area 10 quickly, so place them down when you can!
How to Get and Use Great Wirebug

Utilize Upwelling Wind To Go Upwards

Appearance Upwelling Wind Locations

In the Lava Caverns, you can use Upwelling Wind to propel you from underground up to the upper level, similar to the Gustcrabs in the Sandy Plains. These make it much easier to navigate between the upper and lower levels.

Lava Cavern Environmental Traps

Use Water and Lava Vents

Water Vent (Areas 6 & 7) Lava Vent (Areas 12, 13, & 14)

In the Lava Caverns, there are environmental traps called Vents in Area 6 and Area 12. If you launch a monster against a vent, you can inflict either waterblight or fireblight on the monster (depending on the vent).

Launch Monster Into Vents

The vent only activates when you launch a monster against it by aiming at it and pressing Y while riding the monster. It's difficult to use unless the monster is already in the area, but if you can make them come there, be sure to use it for some additional damage!

Lava Caverns Unique Features

Free Flowing Lava


The Lava Caverns seem like a dangerous area to visit as there is lava falling from the roof of the cavern and ground covered in magma. There are also vents in the map, which you can launch monsters against to do extra damage and inflict either waterblight or fireblight.

Monster Grave Site

Monster Grave Site

Aside from the obvious monster skeleton sticking out, this image also shows massive monster rib cages and algae-like growth around the stalactites. This could mean that this area can either be harmful to the monsters or this is where the monsters come to die.

Unique Water System

Lava Caverns Unique Water System

The Lava Caverns map has an area where cool and pure water can be found beside flowing lava.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
