List of Contents
|①||Upon entry, you'll immediately notice carts with bombs on them. They will explode when you approach so proceed with caution!|
You now have two choices, you can turn left and explore the area where you can get several crafting materials by slaying the bugs, looting the corpses, and eliminating the miners, or head right and use the platforms until you reach the bottom. The bottom leads to the boss against the Flamelurker.
Due to this, it is completely possible to speedrun this area by skipping the left part and shooting straight for the Flameluker.
|②||Heading left you'll encounter a Fat Official, dispatch it to safely proceed. After continuing, you'll encounter hardened carcasses of Landworms, you can roll through them to proceed faster.|
Use the lever to make the platform descend. You'll encounter a Crystal Lizard and 2 Black Phantoms
It is advisable to not chase the Crystal Lizard. Bait one of the phantoms from a distance for an easier fight.
After clearing the area, you'll reach a place with a bunch of wooden platforms and you'll also encounter your first Bearbugs and Landworms here.
Head slightly right to encounter a Landworm. After killing it, look beneath to see a platform, jump to it to descend the area.
|④||There's a tunnel here opposite the area that's infested by Bearbugs. It's a tunnel that leads to a lever that allows you to use the elevator near the Fat Official at the entrance of 2-2.|
|⑤||On the outskirts of the area, you'll see an NPC named Patches the Hyena. He'll offer you the loot from the corpse beneath the beam "as a sign of friendship". Do not take the item yet, kill the Bearbug above it then sprint away before taking the item.|
|⑥||From Patches' location, step down then head north until you see a lootable corpse down below. Step forward to descend and loot it for a Black Heater Shield.|
|⑦||The lowest part of this area houses several flying Bearbugs and Landworms; you can skip through them but doing so might leave you trapped in the mines near there (which is also a maze and difficult to traverse)|
Once inside the maze, head right for a lootable item then left (choosing which tunnel on the left side won't matter). Lure the Bearbug in one of the holes then enter the opposite hole to pass through the Bearbug
Alternatively, you can always just kill it.
|⑨||Head further then drop down. After dropping, head left then follow the path. You'll see an area with lava soon.|
After reaching the lava, head right and make sure to tread on the rightmost side to avoid fire damage. There are two holes you can enter from here, the second hole will lead to another maze.
After this point, you pretty much explored the left side of 2-2, you can now return to the Nexus and make the right turn at the entrance of 2-2 to fight the Flamelurker or just head to the end of the maze, it will also lead to the Fire Lurker.
Bearbugs are extremely sturdy creatures. They're resistant to fire and physical attacks. To beat them, you need to use Magic or weapons that inflict status ailments like Poison or Blight. Against Landworms, their weakness is their head. Use a bow and aim at their heads to kill them quickly.

Take the Dragon Longsword in the Maze
Bring Magic or Weapons that cause status ailments.
Bring a lot of Arrows

The Landworms' weak spots are their head. Use a bow to hit their head to take them down easier.

Attempts to trap you using a loot and a giant Bearbug. It might be tempting to kill him, but proceeding his questline can turn him to a merchant in the Nexus. He sells arrows and is a valuable NPC to keep alive.
