Does the or less mean you can't have any more CL than the stated amount if you want to get the cache, or does it (I hope) mean something else?

I would assume it means "I had 5 CL when I got there and that was enough, I never tried with less CL". Because if you have enough CL, the game won't tell you how much you would have needed.

The CL numbers are the minimum needed to open the cache. There were a few that I forgot to edit lower my Cave Lore to get the exact value.

I already found 39 caches and as it is the last remaining achievement I'd like to make it complete.

 

However I just cant find the last one.

When I googled and found this list I went to each location and checked it.

 

However there are two things I have problems with:

 

Northern Islands: There are two Islands with trees. I probably already found it there, but there is no way to tell.

 

Southern Avernum: I am wondering where the cache should be over there. In the list it's written "SW Shore". But Southern avernum is south of the "Island Fort", north of "Almaria" and west of the Honecomb with has a shore with a cache. So the "shore" is limited to the area around the slith temple. But where the hell should the cache be there?

 

EDIT: Correction and just found it. Its not in the SW. But the farthest east, directly next to the shore of the honeycomb, hidden behind a wall, in a very small "room" next to the shore.

I think i found a cache not on the list? it's in the eastern gallery next to the crystal caves, the one with the quest. It's well hidden by the brown rock spires below the red spires which are below the drinking hole where you get attacked by the lizards, the item is Radiate ice scroll, but ive not checked the CL req. yet, can someone confirm this?

so 41 caches?

 

won't start looking 41st.

 

bit odd that you missed it if you mean that near crystal cave since its easy to spot.

Well, it isn't exactly easy since its out of sight, if you weren't looking carefully, you'd miss it. i found it myself while i was randomly wandering around exploring the map right after getting out of the fort avernum. btw is the list completed? i counted 39 caches before you added the radiate ice scroll onto it.

there's 41 caches now and 40 is needed for medal so .......

 

my opinion is that cache near crystal cave is in sight (can't remember if there were some monsters) when compared to 1 near Draco or that in Northern Isles.

I'm experiencing difficulty finding the cache in Southern Avernum. (It's possible that I already have found it, and am missing one of the others, but I'm going through the list in order.) Where exactly is it in relation to the Slith Temple?

The Southern Avernum after the Demo is off the Dark Lake south shore in one of the small passageways east of the Slith Temple. It's obscured by a wall to the north so it's really hard to see and has an energy potion.

... okay I'm still not finding it. East of the Slith Temple? The only things I'm finding east of the Slith temple are Grimklik's Chasm and the next landing over, with the slalagmite. Any further east and I'm into the Honeycomb. Either way, I'm not finding any cache.

Okay, seriously, not finding it. Can someone please post a screenshot of the area where this cache in the Southern Avernum area is supposed to be?

Well, I got my medal by finding the cache hidden behind a tree in the Northern Isles. Since the medal requirement is for forty caches, and it doesn't make a lot of sense for there to be more than that, I'm about half-way convinced that the Southern Avernum cache is a hoax, and that you're all in on it. Whatever.

I suspect Jeff Vogel himself lost count of exactly how many caches there were in the game. Some are practically invisible and can only be found by walking right into the end of a passageway that happens to have a cache in there.
