The Cricket Cave
The barrels in the entrance of the Cricket Cave drop food heals. Can be a useful location when in need.
The Cricket Cave is populated by various insects, and has two treasure rooms with chests. In order to open the first room, you need to kill 100 bugs. This will unleash a wave of mushrooms. Kill enough mushrooms, and the second treasure room will open, along with the larger mushrooms spawning in the central location. Kill the large mushrooms to spawn the king.
Mushroom drops can be sold to the NPCs in the entrance, or be turned in to those same NPCs for quests. These NPCs offer other quests such as killing X insects for a reward in argents.
When 4 or more earwigs gather together, they will eventually elect a general. If one of these Generals is on screen when the Cricket King dies, the general will transform into the new king which drops a special bug net. The bug net can be used to capture and release most insects in the game.
The cricket king drops 600+ argents, and low level staffs which only hold 100 of each essence. He also drops a couple of wands, the Firefly Wand and the Hexapede wand. The Hexapede want is useful later on for soloing the Black Woods dungeon, so hold onto those.
Chest levels range from 10-30.
