  • Entering the Caverns grants a star. Note the comment "The Goblins came from this way".
  • Engaging the Goblins in the first chamber is also a flag. Pawns will not voice this knowledge.
  • The large iron gate at the far side of the Proving Grounds is another trigger. Note the comment "What could require a gate of this size?".
  • Upon defeat of the Hydra post-game, unlocking the small gate on the Eastern side of the proving grounds is also a flag.


The Caverns contain an abundance of Devilwort and Gold, as well as Skulls, Throwblasts and Dragon's Spit; the Goblins have left items in a number of gather spots.

See also Proving Grounds, which has three treasure chests.
