Chaos Caverns are the deep, underground versions of surface caves.
How they Differ from Caves
As of June 2016, the Chaos Caverns are:
- Much deeper than the surface caves.
- Only accessible by using the travel anywhere version of the spire.
- Contain monsters that attack, rather than passively damage like the exploding mushrooms ("boom 'shrooms")
- Have Outposts built by players that have been selected by means of competitions and placed there by the developers.
Tips for Exploration
If form a Party they can help you battle monsters you encounter, but the Chaos Caverns can also be explored solo too if one is cautious. Everyone in a party will get the loot (resources and other items) when you are in a party, so there is not need to avoid forming spontaneous parties too.
Upgrading you Grappling Hook can make exploring easier, as the better hook allows for faster movement at longer distances.
