Getting there[edit]

Proceed north and east from
Waypoint (tango icon).png
Arundon Waypoint — to Safewatch Vale and then further east in the direction of Offering Stone. The cave entrance is in the mountainside midway between the two points of interest.


Make your way through the cave avoiding traps and multiple veteran Grawl. Along the way you will see notes written by Francis Magellan about a treasure at the end of this cave.

The achievement is earned upon getting to the chest of riches that doomed Francis Magellan. There will be many oozes at the end of the cave, with a few veteran oozes. The Grand Chest is guarded by a Champion Giant Blue Ooze, which can be avoided if you are careful.

If you have a Springer mount, you can skip the minidungeon entirely by jumping up to the chest from the southwest of Safewatch Vale.






  • There are no restrictions on Mounts in this area. The Jackal can be especially useful for avoiding much of the damage from falling rocks.
