With the release of the Chasm, travelers can obtain new rewards and items from simply exploring the area. However, sometimes, that isn’t so easy. In the Ad-Hoc Main Tunnel, travelers will come across a gate with a chest. However, there are no mechanisms around to open the gate.
Instead, travelers must go on a search for a key known as the Miner’s Key. While it isn’t so easy to find on your own, in this guide, we’ll be covering all the steps you need to take in order to get the rewards locked behind the gate.
The Serpent’s Cave
The first step that travelers need to take in order to find the key is to unlock the area, The Serpent’s Cave.
To reach this area, travelers will have to take the small path from Nameless Ruins and keep going until they come across the first Waypoint. Once the Waypoint has been unlocked, continue to explore the area. As you do that, you’ll notice wheel-like devices on the ground, similar to the automatons of the Ruin Serpent. When you get closer to them, you’ll be able to interact with them.
The Miner’s Key is in one of them.
Keep interacting with the remains until you make your way to the other side of the cave and into a small passage. As you make your way there though, be careful. This area is not only home to the Ruin Serpent but also other Ruin Sentinels.
As you reach the end of the passage, if you have interacted with the remains on the way, you should have the Miner’s Key. Now, you’ll be able to create a path leading into the Ad-Hoc Main Tunnel.
When you come out on the other side, you’ll be right in front of the gate.
The Miner’s Key
Once at the gate, use the Miner’s Key to unlock it and then go inside. There, you’ll not only notice a Precious chest but an enemy laying before it, a Shadowy Husk named Skeld.
Engage in battle with the Skeld and once it is defeated, you’ll receive an Orb of the Blue Depth. Obtaining nine such orbs will allow travelers to open a room that will grant them one Luxurious chest, one Precious chest, and one Exquisite chest.
The area behind the locked gate doesn’t end with the cave. Instead of leaving, travelers should explore further. When they do that, they’ll be able to go deeper into this new system and find Lumenspar at the end along with a Seelie and a few enemies. When they go further in, they’ll reach a point that connects the new tunnel system to an underground part of the Chasm full of water.
Upon exploration of this area, you’ll be able to obtain more rewards.
