Pirate Cave
Difficulty: 1
Music: Scallywag

The Pirate Cave is an very low-level Dungeon designed for weak (level 1+) characters. The enemies and boss all have low health and damage output for this purpose. This dungeon is the main source of Pirate Rum consumable, the untiered Corsair Ring, and one of the two sources for the First Mate’s Hook, a piece of the Pirate King Warrior ST set.

Entrances to the Pirate Cave are commonly dropped by Pirates, Piratesses, Green Gelatinous Cubes, Red Gelatinous Cubes, Purple Gelatinous Cubes, Giant Crabs, Sand Devils and Goblin Warriors.

This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Tunnel Rat‘, ‘First Steps‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad Godfame bonuses.

The dungeon has a much more difficult version; the Deadwater Docks.

The Realm Eye says:
Dreadstump’s ragtag crew of pirates once ravaged the realm’s shores. Reckless and consistently drunk, they one day crashed into an inlet on the shoreline.
The stranded swashbucklers used the wreckage of their galleon to assemble a makeshift network of wooden planks around the cove.
Over time, this improvised hideout earned a reputation among seafaring criminal circles as a safe haven for drinking, free from Oryx’s oppression.

Added in Build 74, the Pirate Cave is one of the first two dungeons that were made, the other being the Undead Lair.

In Exalt Version (Sep 2020), the dungeon received a complete overhaul. The previous version of the dungeon before the update can be found here.

This dungeon is sometimes jokingly referred to as the hardest dungeon in the game, due to it actually being the easiest.

Inside the ships are various paintings that reference many realm related things such as enemies, players and events.

Rarely, one of the generated islands may feature a large amount of “dancing” crabs, referencing the “Crab Rave” music video.
