Darklight Caverns is a tier 2 zone in the Night of Shadows expansion.
In order to enter Darklight Caverns you must complete the mission Hero of Shadow Haven: When One Door Closes. In addition, to enter Darklight Caverns someone must remove the rocks blocking the doorway in Deepshade next to the Darklight Caverns zone line by hailing a spirit of perseverance. Hailing a spirit of perseverance will remove the rocks for about 30 seconds. The character hailing a spirit of perseverance must have completed Partisan of Deepshade for the rocks to be removed.
Characters may also use a fellowship campfire or a guild banner to enter Darklight Caverns if they have completed the mission Hero of Shadow Haven: When One Door Closes.

Faction[edit | edit source]
The Primal Spirits faction includes the NPCs Shae, Valia, and Yasil. Doing any of their quests grants you +25 in the faction. Completing any of their quests will enable you to gain the faction toward the gift/achievement from any of them. The rewards are granted based on your standing with The Primal Spirits (kindly, warmly, and ally -- plus one extra completion of the quest for each. So: 525, 775, and 1125).
Lore[edit | edit source]
Deep below Luclin's surface, deeper even than the Deepshade, lies a never-before-seen domain: Darklight Caverns.
Once a simple series of tunnels and caves, the caverns have been greatly influenced by the concentration of mystical animal spirits who have been hiding there since the kerrans were first sent to Luclin. In order to escape a terrible fate at the hands of the Akheva, the goddess Sahteb Mahlni ushered the animal spirits into Darklight Caverns and placed a protective illusion in front of its entrance to keep out those who would enter with dubious intentions. Though they once thought they'd eventually be freed from their confines, they've come to believe, many decades later, they are resigned to their fates in the caverns.
