A very dark Cavern, near the bottom of the layer

The Cavern layer of The Betweenlands begins just below the surface, at a Y-layer of 100, and continues down until it reaches the Lake Cavern layer, at Y=45.

The caves can range from very small to tremendously large, and contain many ores and unique plants. There are sometimes small breaks on the surface which lead to these caverns, and occasionally giant ravines creating deep cuts in the earth that expose ores and other potential systems of caves. The fog is very dense down here, and alternative ambient tracks play.

Composition Edit

The Cavern layer consists of:

Mobs Edit

Swamp Hags, Wights, Chiromaws, and Boulder Sprites can spawn down here, and rarely Harlequin Toads if the above biome supports them.

Structures Edit

Underground Oases can generate down here somewhat uncommonly, and Tar Pool Dungeons more rarely.

Loot Edit

Pots uncommonly spawn in these caves as treasure, using common_pot_loot as their loot table.
