The Crystal Cave is a publicly available server build and the first dungeon on the BadWolfMC Gamma server, accessed by using the Recall spell to travel to Mount Etna, then following the signs to the nearby cave.

History & Game Play

The Crystal Cave made its debut on March 31, 2020 to facilitate the release of the highest level on the Mage progression path: The Engineer. The dungeon is comprised of four unlockable stages that include puzzle rooms, an overized maze, a grueling magical parkour course, and the final boss. Progression through the dungeon is saved at the start of each stage through an individual warp permissions system that unlocks new warp icons in the Recall menu. Completing the dungeon allows the player to purchase, for 9,999 SP, the final upgrade spell needed to ascend to the Engineer level.

Lore

Hiya, fam! It’s me. The Doctor. I mean Merlin. I mean… whatever. So listen! I’ve been trapped in a gigantic space pyramid — get this — inside a massive cave made of crystals. I know, brilliant, right? But I need your help. You see, I’m kinda stuck. Some crazy lady caught me by surprise, and I left my sonic in the TARDIS and the transmat doesn’t work very well in here. Well, by some crazy lady I mean an old friend. Missy. I mean Morgana. I mean… whatever. We go way back. The point is, it’s not going to be easy. There are a lot of obstacles in our way, but I know we can do it. You and me. We got this.

So here’s what’s ahead… Puzzles! Lots of them. Tricksy ones. Riddly ones. Logic ones. Mazes! I love a good maze! I’m sure you’ll… well. You’ll get through it. Parkour! Ok, I have to admit… the prospect is bleak. But I love a challenge, me! We can do it. I know it.

Oh, and the bosses… Can’t forget the bosses. A few of them. They’re quite tough. And some monsters you’ve never seen before. Maybe even one or two that you have. Should be great fun! You’ll get some new spells, and once you get me out I’ll be able to give you that upgrade to your wand you’ve been asking about for ages — you know, the new Engineer stuffs. You’ll love it. So what do you say? Up for the challenge!?

I almost forgot — the entrance! Silly me. Use your recall to get to Mount Etna, then just follow the signs for the Crystal Cave. You can’t miss it. See you soon!
