In RUNE II, there are various dungeon locations spread throughout the vast world of Midgard, and the first one you will encounter is Skadi’s Cavern. Skadi’s Cavern is the easiest of the bunch and the most farmable for good loot from the varied elite bosses, so if you want to learn how to farm and find all of the secrets in Skadi’s Cavern, you have come to the right place. I will be your guide through this dangerous dungeon and will help you survive the upcoming Twilight of the Gods in a series of guides for RUNE II. Let’s delve into Skadi’s Cavern together, shall we?
RUNE II Skadi’s Cavern Walkthrough – How to Beat and Where to Find All Secrets
When first entering the cavern, we start in the area above but before you go charging about, walk a few steps and then turn right.
Around the corner, you should see a chest in the location shown above. Loot it and then proceed into the depths of Skadi’s Cavern.
In the next room, several enemies will spawn, and you should have a weapon at this point, so do something about it! After dispatching this first wave, you should be standing in a spot that looks something like the image above. You are going to want to head straight and turn left where that lantern is in our image.
When you turn around the corner, you will see a nice little chest sitting pretty like the one above. Take its goodies and then turn around and go up the path heading deeper into the cavern above.
After some thralls and draugr spawn and after taking a few moments to rightfully dispatch them to the afterlife, you will come to a point where two paths stand before you. One of them goes to the right and the other left, and you will need to go down the one to the right for now.
When you have done as I instructed, you will meet a few enemies escorting a rather unhappy elite enemy variant. If you haven’t figured it out yet, you are going to need to beat its face until it disappears and once that bit of fun is over with, check the image above. Like last time there are two avenues to go down. One goes up the rock ramp and the other to the right. Again, go right, and you will find a chest, and after looting it, turn back and go up the ramp heading up.
You will find a small area and if you look carefully there are two chests here. One is in the corner in plain sight and the other in the pool of water. I didn’t find this until going through the dungeon a third time before writing this guide, so good job hiding it developers. After looting these chests, head back the way you came and go through the path to the left from earlier.
Head down the hallway, and you will find yourself inside another room that is similar to the last. In this room of Skadi’s Cavern, the chest is going to be at the top of the ramp. Loot it and keep heading through the dungeon.
The next room you will encounter will be the one in the image above. Some enemies will spawn like the last few, but the chests you will want to find are in two different locations. The first is in the little hole in the wall that is all lit up. The second chest is on a cliff that you will have to jump up to the right to get. Get the one in the little hole first and then move on to the second one.
Jump up on the cliff and turn around, and you will see the next chest you have to get. Be sure to time your jumps correctly to get across to it. Once you loot the last loot chest, jump down and proceed to the next room, then keep heading through until you reach a spot like the one below.
You are almost to the end of Skadi’s Cavern. Can you feel it, Wolf of Midgard? Well, don’t get too excited yet, because the work you have set out to do in this dungeon is not complete, for there are more areas to explore and loot to find.
That said, in the location shown above, you will need to go around to the right and find a hidden loot chest before heading further. Once you have done so, turn back and go up the path to the left. You are about to do some platforming and parkour, so I hope you packed some good sneakers. After the parkour, you are going to see a very long and very blue path going straight across. See the image below if you are not sure what that looks like Wolf.
Head through, but stop at the point shown above. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a chest to the left. Loot, turn around, and head straight down. Watch out though, there’s a jump somewhere. I haven’t the foggiest where though. I had too many magic mushrooms and mead last night.
After progressing into the next room, you will arrive in the last area of the dungeon of Skadi’s Cavern. But don’t get too comfortable yet as several enemies are also in this area waiting for you. You will need to kill them all and head straight through the doors at the end of the room to complete this dungeon. Before you do that, be sure to loot the chest to the right of the exit.
That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed this little walkthrough of Skadi’s Cavern in RUNE II. Feel free to let me know what you thought about it in the comments below.
