Guide to The City
At somepoint during the Caves you will found a place titled The Forgotten City. Which is the Spike in difficulty and progress in Lens Island. The City holds more resources than the first half of the caves. Here’s what to expect when going into the city.
The City is hard, it is infested with so many voids, traps and loot. There are a few major things to point out with the city. First of all being the events. There are 3 major events in the cave which I will detail here.
This event is the first one you will encounter into the cave, in this event you will run into a few large voids[/u[,]4 voidling spawners. The event is designed to first catch unprepared players off guard. You can quickly be overwhelmed in this scenario and killed very quickly if you are caught in the crowd of voids. Here is how I suggest you clear it. Immedietly run for a close by spawner.
Spawn swinging at it and then go for the other one, you should take minimal damage as the voids are only winding up. Next start taking on another, if you feel you are taking too much damage attacking these spawners then slowly kite the enemies around the arena and deal damage to each spawner till they are all dead, if you are carrying a large aoe weapon this strategy is quite effective, faster weapons can take out the spawners quicker. So the choice is yours.
This event is another one that can catch players off guard, if a player hasn’t explored too much then this may be the first time they meet the thunderbug which is a little bug that hits hard. The arena holds 4 large voids and 4 thunderbugs and the room would have numerous pressure plated traps for you to use against you or for you. Here is a solution to getting through.
Enter the arena and kite them around, you can do this entire fight without swinging by using the traps to shoot the voids, you can use heavy weapons to bunch up the bugs and take them out in one combo, if you don’t; you risk being zapped to death very quickly. You can play a more quicker style and pop in for a few hits then run away. Just try not to get caught by a large void.
The Last Major event in the City. This sits before The Boss. This event can be Difficult or Easy Depending your Approach, The Arena Consists of 7 Large Voids and 4 Anklebiter Spawners. This Arena can quickly become Overwhelming for Low damage weapons if you rush in. Here is how i propose you approach this. When drop into this fight You are greeted with a few Voids rushing towards you. Make sure not to run past them and pull more in, Fight them a few at a time and then Slowly work through their Numbers, The Arena is Full of Floor Arrow traps so do your Best not to get stuck on them as you work your way through. Large, Strong weapons Suggested for this Fight. After this you are Greeted with a Gate. But what the Hell is it and Why does part of it Glow? I wonder.
There are a Few Key Areas outside of these places too. After the Second event there is an Elevator which you can Repair for 350 Stone and 200 Limestone Which allows you to Travel to that point in the cave without coming from the very start, Very convenient, And has a Little Tool Chest next to it for all your item needs! Plus a Little Rune on the inside for your Fast Travel needs.
