What is Crystal Caverns? 

Miners love Shiverchill Mountains for its rich resource of valuable ice crystals. But power crystals — a strong source of magical energy — are even more valuable.

The largest source of power crystals is Crystal Caverns: a section inside Shiverchill packed with Crystals that miners frequently search for.

But lately, Crystal Caverns isn't as peaceful as it once was...And it's up to the Prodigy wizards to travel through Crystal Caverns and help figure out what's going on!

As soon as your child logs in, they can travel up Shiverchill Mountains and through Crystal Caverns, where they’ll: 

  • Save miners
  • Repair tracks
  • Travel in minecarts
  • Fight major bosses 

Players will also find new and unique features, like new monsters, bosses and exclusive in-game rewards!

Plus, they’ll meet a new Prodigy friend: Aspen Frost.

Aspen spends much of his time making sure the miners get to and from the Crystal Caverns safely during bad weather. He also sets up shop for them while they're working hard mining power crystals in the caverns.

In his free time, Aspen can be found shredding the slopes of Shiverchill Mountain. ⛷

Now that the fun is crystal clear, share the excitement with your child and watch as they hurry to log in!
