If you can’t figure out how to unlock the Hermit’s Cave in Lies of P, don’t worry, we’re here to help. You actually have to do more than what the nearby NPC tells you to do. Turns out, it seems like some people might be liars in a game based on Pinocchio. Rather, there are a few nebulous hoops that you’ll have to jump through. Here’s what you need to do.
Lies of P How to Unlock Hermit’s Cave
To unlock the Hermit’s Cave in Lies of P, you first need to get to Barren Swamp Bridge. To the right of that Stargazer, you’ll see a gate that’s clearly barring you from getting something that lies beyond. There’s an NPC next to the gate, and his name is Rookie Explorer Hugo. Talk to him until he tells you that he’ll open the gate if you come by and chat every so often. That’s a bold-faced lie. Instead, talk to Hugo until you exhaust all dialogue and get the Cryptic Vessel. Go back to Hotel Krat and give the vessel to Venigni. Next, keep going through the game normally until you get to the top of the building that’s full of sword-wielding enemies in Collpased Street. Drop to the side where the fire-breathing puppet is and keep going until you collect the Special Krat Supply Box from a chest.
The next step to unlock the Hermit’s Cave in Lies of P is to take the Special Krat Supply Box to Hotel Krat and hand it over to Polendina. The shop will update, so go ahead and buy the Rusty Cryptic Vessel. Give that to Venigni as well. Once all that’s done, you should go to the Stargazer in Barren Swamp Bridge, and the gate should be open. So, go ahead and explore the cave, see what you can find.
