Avernum Crystal Souls Cache List

Recommended Posts

I found a total of 46 48 caches, and wrote them down as I went along. All of them (except one that was in the middle of nowhere) are written with a map landmark as a reference point. If I say something is past a hidden wall, I mean one of those vine covered walls that you can walk through.


You only need 40 caches for the medal/achievement. 11 cave lore is required to be able to get every cache (the Putrified Gauntlets are 12, but you can wear the First Expedition Ring to bring that up).


Caches in chapter 1:


1. Scroll of Lightning - SW of Lizard Lair past hidden wall.

2. Healing Potion - N of Aranea Web. Fairly out in the open

3. Battle Crystal - S of Fungal Clearing behind a stalagmite. This one is actually impossible to see because of the angle its at.

4. Fiery Wand - N of Tiny Slith Fort. Next to a tiny 1 tile pool of water.


Chapter 2 (can't go back and check these, except #8)


5. Razordisk x6 - NW of Herb Patch. Through a hidden wall past a waterfall.

6. Energy Potion - SE of Barrier Tower. North of #5 by some purple trees.

7. Healing Elixir - W of Coffin Caves behind some purple trees.

8. Graymold - SW of Long Tunnel, through a hidden wall.

Perfect timing - I was just going to check if someone had made one of these lists, and here it is. Smashin'.


You did miss a gold necklace in the Vahnatai Lands accessible in Chapter 3 - it's just S/SE of the Test of Strength, by the walled ruins in the open.


Also, according to Randomizer's list, there's a lemonwood longbow cache in the Honeycomb you missed, but I haven't tested that one myself.
