stein

Chitin / Keratin
This material is not exclusive in caves, but it’s available in high amounts due to the large amounts of insects.
Loot Crystals
Can be occasionally found in caves. These contain a variety of equipment, some of which may be of higher quality than their craftable counterparts. Loot Crystals have level requirements.

Underwatercaves

Underwatercaves can be found by looking for rising air bubbles. These are right next to the cave entrance. Underwatercaves contain a lot of oil and pearls, but can be tricky to reach.

With a tamed Megalodon, you should be able to reach these caves with 100 max oxygen. Without a megalodon you should cook some Lazarus Chwder. These reduce the oxygen loss and allows you to reach an underwatercave with more than 40% oxygen left.

Information: Do not park your megalodon close to the cave entrance. They’ll stuck easily and will die.

 

Most underwater caves look similar.

Oil can be gathered from oily rocks. You will always get one unit of oil, regardless of the tool you use for gathering.
