Navigating The Solafite Plating Blueprint Location

After locating the rope on a rocky mountain, you’ll need to descend to reach the daunting cave. Crucially, to uncover the Solafite Plating Blueprint, you must first obtain the Rebreather. This device enables prolonged underwater swimming, vital for reaching the Plating Blueprint location.

Entrance To Cave

Once inside the cave, follow the path until you reach a cascade. Go with the water flow, but beware of the risk of falling at the end. Hop onto the right to find a path, but be cautious as it can be steep.

After descending, gather essential items including an oxygen tank. Utilize your Rebreather to navigate through this underwater portion of the cave. Following the trail, you’ll reach a fork in the road. Proceed to the left, as the right path leads to a dead end.
