Aerial shot of Aurora

Aurora is an underground mining town in the Cave System. The town is set in the ice and is built around a central tree. It is one of the deepest towns in the Cave System, so get plenty of food before attempting to get here. Food and military gear can be found here, as well as potions. On May 9, 2020, Aurora received a rebuild as part of the Origins update.

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • While the loot here is well rounded, players do not frequent this place because of its distance from major objectives such as elite dungeons and the PvP area that is the gravel canyons.
  • There is a crafting table at the entrance to the mine.
  • There is one usable brewing stand hidden in the pillar room, behind the ice blocks.
  • There is only one entrance/exit, and it's a rather long tunnel. Consider placing cobwebs in there and bow-spamming to stop players from entering Aurora.
    • Due to the slope of the tunnel, it's even easier to prevent players from leaving.
  • Heading straight west from Riftus will lead here easily.
  • Clarce Mines can be used as a way to get here as well.
  • Wolves spawn here frequently. Watch out for them.
  • More reasonably, Shivers do spawn frequently here but can be avoided by swimming up the waterfall to the house in the east and disposed off from there.
  • To get to the 2 pot_rare chests two buttons are required. Place the buttons on the two chiseled stone bricks located on the western and eastern wall of the temple and quickly press both of them. Go in quickly. The doorway will remain open automatically so long as somebody is inside.
  • A good place to stock up on chain armor, potions, water bottles, and basic supplies before attempting Krubera Vault.
  • No other cave town has more potion chests than Aurora. This may compel bandits to visit this location.


  • On March 11, 2018, the ice inside Aurora's cave melted to the point the entire location became completely flooded, quickly getting the nickname of Flooded Aurora or even blaming it on Global Warming for the disaster as a joke. Some of the parkour-only areas were reachable along with some unreachable ones, it was incredibly difficult to traverse and the only places that weren't submerged in water were the church and the temple. It was quickly fixed a few hours after the incident was reported. A video in the completely trashed location can be found here.
  • This town was originally built by Wholemilk, BOTB_Justalittle, Coltsnid, Nickskibike, Bionic_Prodigy and a few other friends of theirs. There are even graves with Wholemilk's, Coltsnid's, Nickisbike's and Bionic's names on them.
  • In the house on the Eastern Waterfall Ledge, there is a player head hidden in the ice. Next to the head is a sign that reads, "Cold Spaghetti."


  • There's a Lore Book here, at the mine's entrance. Most of the terminologies and events mentioned in the Lore Book reference the playstyle, common occurences and game mechanics of the MineZ world from a player's perspective.

Aurora Hermit - Joe

Day 1:
This is the day that I have always planned for!
I knew that one day the fools above would end up messing something up.
It's a good thing that I have always worked to horde all of the materials I need down here.
Now I just have to wait.

Day 17:
I have 20 bowls of delicious mushroom stew standing by in case they are ever needed.
And if those ever run out I am working on getting an endless supply of bread.....more research is needed.

Day 28:
I've finished my work on the underwater storage facility, no one will ever find my work.
My work may get wet nut it will be safe.

Day 47:
58 Golden apples and counting.
Not sure what I could use these for, however I'm sure if I wanted to run anywhere without getting hungry I would be able to do so.
I have no fear of dying of dehydration as there is fresh water all around me.

Day 123:
A man came down into the cave today to search for food.
It was a fatal error to enter my cave.
I tricked him into following me down a passage today and when he took a wrong turn...
I let him fall into lava
Oh well, more food for me.

Day 285:
I have spent the last month making spreadsheets by hand cataloging all of the materials that I have. I am prepared for whatever comes next!

Day 464:
I'm going to stop documenting what is going on for a while, quite a bit of entertainment down here.

Day 973:
I've spent some time thinking, I think I might try going outside later, I will make a plan to do so.

Day 1462:
Sorry I haven't made a log in a while, I made some friends on the surface that I could share my stuff with. As it turns out friends are okay.
As long as they don't take my health potions or sugar.

Day 2152:
It's time for me to leave this log behind.
To the person that finds this log, this cave provides everything that a person may need, except for other people.
Make some friends.
