In fact, Arthur will give players one of the earliest sidequests in the game, called Cache in the Castle. Here’s how players can complete this cryptic sidequest and claim a nifty cosmetic reward.

How to start Cache in the Castle

In the early hours of the game after attending a handful of classes like Charms, players may find Arthur standing outside that very same classroom.

Arthur will hand players a map with drawings featuring a rhinocerous skeleton, a wyvern statue, and a picture frame. He asks players if they can find the secret to this map and the quest will begin.
