    Travel Advisory/Warnings(top)

    • There is a crafting table in the entrance to the mine.
    • There is one usable brewing stand hidden in the pillar room, behind the ice blocks.
    • You must get to this town by traveling through the Cave System.
      • Heading straight West from Riftus will get you here easily.
    • There is only one entrance/exit.
    • As a single person, you can survive indefinitely here. There's plenty of water, the stand chest gives adequate food for survival, and the crafting tables allow for the creation of cookies.
    • With a large amount of food and water, medical supplies, and adequate armor and equipment, you can travel between this and Riftus, using them as a base of operations. The advantages would be that few bandits go here, good equipment spawns, and you have easy access to half of the northern locations through tunnel.
    • To get to the 2 pots_rare chests you need 2 buttons and 2 people. Place the buttons on the 2 chiseled stone bricks located on the northern wall of the temple and get your partner to press one of the buttons. When you do so, a passage will open up between the chiseled blocks. Go in quick and claim your loot before the doorway closes. To get back out simply press the button located near the entrance to the room.
    • If you are short on food, it is a good idea to head to Krubera if you need some.
    • A good place to stock up on chain/ iron armor, pots, water bottles, and basic supplies before you attempt the Barathrum Caverns, which is nearby.
    • If you want to loot the place easily, do it in a clockwise direction. Loot the epic in the waterfall, then the mine with the mil rare, then the food chest in the cave and so on. You can continue doing this and all chests will have time to respawn.
    • The waterfall by the entrance is trapped with damage potions. To enter without triggering the traps, stay left as you enter to room.
    • You can climb the ice above the church to gain the high ground on your enemies.
    • This town can be hard to find if you don't know where it is, so be sure to set a waypoint or use coordinates to access.
    • Going in the area with the stairs and lava can be fatal if you are not careful. Hug the left wall and you'll be fine.
    • One of the cave towns that can spawn health potions, because of this there is a very small chance you will encounter a player here, who may or may not be a bandit.

    Trivia (top)

    • On March 11, 2018, the ice inside Aurora's cave melted to the point the entire location became completely flooded, quickly getting the nickname of Flooded Aurora or even blaming it on Global Warming for the disaster as a joke. Some of the parkour-only areas were reachable along with some unreachable ones, it was incredibly difficult to traverse and the only places that weren't submerged in water were the church and the temple. It was quickly fixed a few hours after the incident was reported. A video in the completely trashed location can be found here.
    • This town was built by Wholemilk, BOTB_Justalittle, Coltsnid, Nickskibike, Bionic_Prodigy and a few other friends of theirs. There are even graves with Wholemilk's, Coltsnid's, Nickisbike's and Bionic's names on them.


    • There's a Lore Book here, at the mine's entrance. Most of the terminologies and events mentioned in the Lore Book reference the playstyle, common occurences and game mechanics of the MineZ world from a player's perspective:

      Aurora Hermit - Joe

      Day 1:
      This is the day that I have always planned for!
      I knew that one day the fools above would end up messing something up.
      It's a good thing that I have always worked to horde all of the materials I need down here.
      Now I just have to wait.

      Day 17:
      I have 20 bowls of delicious mushroom stew standing by in case they are ever needed.
      And if those ever run out I am working on getting an endless supply of bread.....more research is needed.

      Day 28:
      I've finished my work on the underwater storage facility, no one will ever find my work.
      My work may get wet nut it will be safe.

      Day 47:
      58 Golden apples and counting.
      Not sure what I could use these for, however I'm sure if I wanted to run anywhere without getting hungry I would be able to do so.
      I have no fear of dying of dehydration as there is fresh water all around me.

      Day 123:
      A man came down into the cave today to search for food.
      It was a fatal error to enter my cave.
      I tricked him into following me down a passage today and when he took a wrong turn...
      I let him fall into lava
      Oh well, more food for me.

      Day 285:
      I have spent the last month making spreadsheets by hand cataloging all of the materials that I have.
      I am prepared for whatever comes next!

      Day 464:
      I'm going to stop documenting what is going on for a while, quite a bit of entertainment down here.

      Day 973:
      I've spent some time thinking, I think I might try going outside later, I will make a plan to do so.

      Day 1462:
      Sorry I haven't made a log in a while, I made some friends on the surface that I could share my stuff with.
      As it turns out friends are okay.
      As long as they don't take my health potions or sugar.

      Day 2152:
      It's time for me to leave this log behind.
      To the person that finds this log, this cave provides everything that a person may need, except for other people.
      Make some friends.
