Before entering the dungeon, make sure you have the following:

Navigating the Crimson Cove Dungeon
Crimson Cove can be found in the northwestern part of Malabal Tor. To enter the dungeon, look for a cave entrance near the coastline, surrounded by pirate-themed decorations.
The dungeon is divided into several sections, connected by a series of wooden bridges and platforms.
The Pirate Camp
Upon entering the Crimson Cove dungeon, make your way straight ahead and then take a left turn to encounter the first boss, First Mate Rodros. Defeat Rodros and proceed through the pirate camp, engaging and defeating groups of enemies as you advance.
As you reach a shipwreck, prepare to face the second boss, Captain Siro. Overcome Siro and continue traversing the shipwreck area, eliminating groups of enemies in your path.
Once you have navigated through the shipwreck, you will enter the caverns. In this section, you will confront the remaining four bosses: Yirlay the Wicked, Reja Laransdottir, Pilot Ostrala, and Rokut the Mauler. Defeat these bosses to successfully complete the Crimson Cove public dungeon.
- Giant Snake
- Mekag gro-Bug
- Shifty Tom
Defeat each boss and clear any enemy groups you encounter. After defeating the last boss, Shifty Tom, you will have completed the dungeon.
Tips, Tricks, and Secrets
- Skyshard: Don’t forget to collect the skyshard located near the entrance to the caverns. Skyshards grant skill points when you collect three of them.
