Disney Dreamlight Valley cave: With great powers, Where to find the two quest caves

Not sure where to place your Crystal Key for Merlin and Ursula's main quest "With Great Powers"? Here's where to find the cursed cave and the mystical secret cave in order to retrieve the Enchanted Beach Orb.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is finally released this Tuesday, September 6, 2022 in Early Access on all platforms. The opportunity for you to discover this magical world and restore it by finding lost Disney and Pixar characters. All means are good: whether it's exploring the open world by unlocking the passages of nocturnal thorns thanks to the Dreamlight, or going through the castle and its magic paintings. Today we are going to focus on Merlin's main quest asking us to explore the cursed cave .

With Great Powers: The Main Story Quest

Once you have progressed a little in the game with Merlin, Scrooge, Mickey and Goofy, the magician will suggest that you unlock access to the Enchanted Beach, south of the Prairie Tranquille. This of course requires 3000 Dreamlight in order to clear the passage overrun with Night Thorns.

Exploring the Accursed Cave: how to get there?

The first step will be to go to the Grotto Maudite, to the far left of the Enchanted Beach. If you take the big stairs down from the meadow, you'll come across some shipwreck and a stretch of sand but not much else. The climb to the right is blocked by thorns (direction Bayou du Courage) and to the left, the small pontoon is blocked by large indestructible corals. Don't panic, you can access the other part of the square by another way!

  • Go back to the Prairie Tranquille and head towards the largest pond in the area (the one near Goofy's house),
  • You will see a passage on the left that goes down to the beach (left part) and will find a much larger stretch of sand, a teleportation shaft to repair and even a Goofy stand to build.

    Later, thanks to Maui, you can improve your pickaxe and break the corals.

Where is the cave to unlock with the Crystal Key?

Now talk to Ursula who will give you a crystal key that must be placed in a device near the locked entrance to a cave. The latter is in front of the teleport well, just behind the pillar of the Orb. You will see ruins and a stone gate in the cliff.

  • Approach the stone stele to interact with it and insert the crystal key,
  • This will open the entrance to the Secret Cave,
  • The latter is composed of several magic doors to cross by completing puzzles.

Complete the 3 puzzles of the Mystical Cave

Now that you can enter the Secret Cave, your objective is to go all the way down to retrieve the Orb.

First Gate - The Gems

As explained in our guide to mistakes not to make, it is very important to keep at least one copy of each gem in your chests. This will prove useful for many quests including this one. The first door to cross will only open if you place a particular gem in the hands of each of the three statues:

  • Left statue: Peridot (green gem)
  • Middle statue: Aquamarine (blue gem)
  • Right statue: Garnet (red gem)

    Be careful, this only works with normal gems and not shiny ones.

Second Gate - The Sprouts

To open the second door, you will have to plant the right seeds at the feet of the three statues:

  • Left statue: carrot seed
  • Middle Statue: Tomato Seed
  • Right Statue: Wheat Seed

    Water the ingredients well to make them grow: the door will only open once the three plants have fully emerged from the ground. Remember to water the tomato again when it is dry. You can then harvest the ingredients.

Third door - The kitchen

With your three freshly harvested ingredients, you must now cook a dish that includes them in the large pot. By mixing 1 Wheat, 1 Tomato and 1 Carrot, you will then obtain the recipe for vegetarian pasta. Don't forget to eat the dish to complete the quest.

Collect the Orb

Now that you can access the bottom of the cave, you must take out your fishing rod and collect the Orb which is in the body of water (orange circle with bubbles). Then get out of the cave and place the Orb in the Pillar outside.

And There you go ! You can now place Ursula's house wherever you want to make her a permanent resident. Note that the sea witch only moves in the water (logical) and that it is sometimes difficult to find her: do not hesitate to fish in the ocean, she will sometimes come to see you and you can then interact with her. she !
