  • This hero challenge was previously only available after the Mouth of Mordremoth had been defeated. With the April 19, 2016 update, this hero challenge has been made available at all times.
  • Bouncing Mushroom mastery is required to hop onto the rock where this commune point is located.
  • The cave entrance leading to this hero challenge is at the end of a gully filled with vines that can instantly kill, like those at the bottom of Verdant Brink. Gliding is required to reach the entrance; Lean Techniques may prove helpful as well.
  • The mushroom mobs here are very powerful, and events such as Kill the mushroom emperor spawn here.
