How to find the Golden Scythe in the new 1.4 Update.

Where to Find the Golden Scythe

Note: Credit goes to Admirable Crunch

Note: Finding the Golden Scythe requires completing the community center bundle/joja mart community upgrade for the quarry.

The Cave is right north of the bridge to the Quarry area. Which is only available after the Quarry is open.

Inside you’ll see a small cave room with a warning and a hole to climb down.

I recommend you have a good sword/boot combo before entering. I had the Space boots and the Galaxy sword while entering and I did more than fine.

Navigating the Cave

The Cave is fairly easy to navigate, with few branching paths. You basically have to head north, it’s hard to get wrong.

First enemies you’ll encounter are the Slimes most likely. Brown and Grey slimes are seemingly unique to this cave, they tend to drop all the usual slime drops but also drop ores more frequently too, making them great for farming. They are the most vicious of all the slimes bar the skull mine iridium slimes.

Second you’ll most likely encounter the Skulls. They’re an enemy unique to the Reaper Cave. The Flying skulls have the usual flying enemy pattern, they will go down in two swings of the Galaxy Sword. But if you’re not careful their large numbers can overwhelm you as they do take a nice chip of damage on each him. The skulls tend to drop nice loot as well with a mixture of light and dark essences.

The enemies respawn each time you enter the cavern (daily), they have great loot for pre-skull cavern enemies. Making this a quick loot run rather than heading into the mines.

The Reward

At the end is the Reaper Statue. All you need to do it use it. Then you get the Golden Scythe!

Remember to use the reaper after getting the scythe.

You don’t even need to worry about going back the way you came, as the reaper is now a teleport. Even if you re-visit the cave you can always use the reaper, which will teleport you back to the entrance.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
