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
|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.
The mining outcrops in the northeast section of the lower level in Lava Caverns are quite confusing to reach, but it's definitely rewarding with six mining outcrops in this area!
So first of all, head northeast! You should find a small hole in the wall there. Crawl under it. There should be a blue mining outcrop in the area once you crawl out.
Next, you will have to look up and find another small opening in the walls above you. Use your Wirebugs and wallrun up there.
When you go through the opening, there should be two blue mining outcrops and three white mining outcrops. You'll need to use Wirebugs to get to them.
If you're interested, there's also a Relic Record in this area close to one of the mining outcrops.
|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).
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!

Hellbill is the rare endemic life in the Lava Caverns. It's located at the top of Area 11, at the crater of the volcano. Take a picture of it to register it in your Hunter's Notes!

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