Cave Crawling, Cavern of Dead and Pick Up Pickaxes (Optional)

Cave Crawling
Head on over to The Bone Pit and grab the deathroot then follow the path to Jansen who starts the quest 'Cave Crawling' . Search the chest - complex , crate , and bag of bones for a Petrified Human Finger . If you were nice to Sabin you can find Sabin’s Stash south of the bag. Further east you can find two barrels and north from there a crate and some glitterdust . Make your way to the Bone Pit Mines, but don’t miss the sack just outside the entrance.

Head south up the steps to some corrupted lyrium and a crate. Head back down and defeat the Queen Spider and her minions then loot the pile of bones . Go back to Jansen to finish the quest.

Enter the cave and destroy all of the spiders inside to finish the quest.

Cavern of Dead
Leave The Bone Pit then return to find Jansen in trouble again and start the quest 'Cavern of Dead' . Enter the Bone Pit Mines from the northeast and move east. Disarm the trap - standard immediately after the door and defeat the swarm of undead. Backtrack and go north this time doing the same thing, then proceed to the middle area. Here you must fight a Revenant and Arcane Horror, take out the Horror first then the Revenant. Loot the two chests and the chest - complex for Helm of the Emerald Knights and Persuasion .

Return to The Bone Pit and talk with Jansen to finish the quest.

Enter the cave and destroy all of the enemies inside to finish the quest.

Pick Up Pickaxes
Leave The Bone Pit and return again to Jansen to gain the quest 'Pick Up Pickaxes' . Head to Lowtown and find Smith at the southern end near the Armor Merchant.
