Escape the Cave Creature is a quest with a boss called the Crystal Colossus. Defeating this boss will unlock the Rock Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Crystal Colossus's HP (400) makes this a short quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) make this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in less than two weeks. This quest is recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties.


Crossing Habitica's Meandering Mountains with some friends, you make camp one night in a beautiful cave laced with shining minerals. But when you wake up the next morning, the entrance has disappeared, and the floor of the cave is shifting underneath you.

"The mountain's alive!" shouts your companion @pfeffernusse.

"These aren't crystals - these are teeth!" @Painter de Cluster grabs your hand.

"We'll have to find another way out – stay with me and don't get distracted, or we could be trapped in here forever!"


Defeat the Crystal Colossus.

Your diligence has allowed you to find a safe path through the living mountain. Standing in the sunshine, your friend @intune notices something glinting on the ground by the cave’s exit. You stoop to pick it up, and see that it’s a small rock with a vein of gold running through it. Beside it are a number of other rocks with rather peculiar shapes. They almost look like… eggs?"
