Cave Altar Locations in Dark and Darker

There are two different Cave Altars in the game, and I’ll show you the locations of both of them. You need to enter the Goblin Caves at the spot near the Tavern. Then, you can find them basically at the same spot but in different sections of the caves.

Goblin Caves 2 Cave Altar Location

The first Cave Altar is located in the north-central part of Goblin Caves 2. You can reach this spot by going through the Cave Tombs from the west, which is a lot easier than rushing through central Goblin Town. Either way, it’s up to you to collect all the clues from the Cave Altar here.

Goblin Caves 4 Cave Altar Location

I also managed to spot a different Cave Altar inside Goblin Caves 4. It sits in exactly the same spot as the first one, but it looks nothing like it. If you can get past the central Cave Pit Hall, you’ll be able to reach it via the Golbin Mine in the east.

Goblin Merchant’s Secrets of the Dead Quest Rewards

After finding all the clues for Goblin Merchant, he’ll be pleased to ask you to fetch a Goblin Ear during the final quest of the chapter, “A Goblin’s Pride.” But before that, he’ll give you some nice things for your services:

  • 50x Unique Gold Coins
  • 1x Uncommon Spellbook
  • 1x Uncommon Magic Staff
  • 25x EXP

That’s all I wanted to tell you about all the Cave Altar locations in Dark and Darker. Stay tuned for more Dark and Darker tips and tricks articles right here.
