Investigate the cave that Excavator Karla told you about.

  • Investigated Excavator Karla's Cave


Pst... Come 'ere! I just got a tip about a cave on this island that is a treasure trove of loot! This could be my biggest score yet.

Problem is, I uhh... sprained my ankle. Yeah, I would be right there with you battling those demons to get this treasure, but I shouldn't be putting any weight on this leg of mine. Shucks.

How about you go check on this cave and report back to me. I'll mark your map where the cave entrance is. I've been told it's pretty hidden, so you've got to look around.


You will receive:


You find anything?


Looks like we hit the motherlode! Now all we need is a key... Huh. Why don't you go work on getting some keys for these chests and I'll hang out with goofy-nose here.


At the base of a tree is a Peculiar Rope[47.82, 67.34], along with the sign "Nothing Secret Here!" Clicking the rope teleports you inside the Secret Treasure Lair[44.34, 52.10], and is the only way into this underground area.

Treasure Master Iks'reeged says: Intruder! How did you find my lair!
Iks'reeged starts summoning a portal.
Treasure Master Iks'reeged says: It's no matter, in a moment I will be gone along with all of my treasure!
Excavator Karla suddenly walks in, her 'sprained ankle' not bothering her anymore.
Excavator Karla says: Hey, jerk! I think this shard you brought me is broken. I tried hitting it with a rock and everything!
Karla turns to the wyrmtongue.
Excavator Karla says: Oh, hey. Who are you?
Treasure Master Iks'reeged says: I'm Iks'reeged, Treasure Master! Wait... What is that you are holding?
Treasure Master Iks'reeged says: Arrrg! What have you done?! Shackled to this realm forever? I cannot imagine a worse fate!
The  [Ancient Shard of Binding] spawns by Karla and encases the demon in a shield, then traps him in a prison, helplessly floating in place.
The Ancient Shard of Binding begins to radiate with tremendous power.
Karla acts embarrassed.
Excavator Karla says: Whoops! So, I guess that's what this thing does! Oh well.
Excavator Karla says: Hey! Look at all this treasure!
She sits down on the cave floor.
