In Riders of Icarus, Lavalight Cave (LLC) is the first dungeon players will encounter and is located in the south-west region of the Hakanas Highlands. The recommended starting level is 13-15. The dungeon-specific gear dropped in Lavalight Cave is called Emberstone gear. Outside the tunnel leading to the entranceway, an NPC named Private Corance offers repeatable quests.
As part of your storyline Lavalight Cave (LLC or LC) is the first dungeon you will complete. You will learn how Riders of Icarus proceeds with their dungeon designs and mechanics through this dungeon. Try to learn the dungeon by entering in the Normal (or 'Storyline') mode before joining higher modes. The following guide will show you how to clear it. Before that if your level is relative lower, I think you need to buy some Riders of Icarus Gold for boosting.

Mobs & Quest NPC
Ruins Entrance - Mobs
The three sleeping skeleton monsters at the entrance are not linked to one another. However, they will all wake up if you get close so it is advised that you lure the middle monster first. The sleeping mobs are easily defeated. Here is an image from K-Icarus Inven that depicts this:
Path to Swiftfire River
As you go around the bend, you'll see a few skeleton archers and one Burning Skeleton Knight. Depending on the difficulty, it is advised that you wait for the knight to come around the bend and once it is close enough, lure it without drawing agro from the archers nearby.
Evading to the left or right against Skeleton Archers. Although these archers have low defense, their attack power is high. It is possible to die from their arrow attacks if you lack defense or blocks so take care not to get hit.
In harder difficulties, it may be difficult to take them all five at once. Slay the Burning Skeleton Soldier first then go for the Skeleton Knight.
Kill the Soldier first, Knight second, then the Archers.
Skeletons and its Captain
The two skeletons aren't linked together so you can lure one at a time to kill them. Then kill the eggs to complete your quest.
In Normal/Storyline Mode
Lure and kill one at a time.
Break the eggs (4/4) to finish the quest.
In harder difficulties
He will awaken the sleeping skeletons around him. They have low defense so kill them off quickly so you can focus the mini boss: Burning Skeleton Captain.
You'll find the collapsed NPC that had given you the quest earlier. She hands you an empty bottle and asks you to bring back some water. Go further into the dungeon and you'll find a small pond guarded by two suicides. The Emberstone Sentinels will explode when you get close; kill them from a safe distance.
Suiciders that explode so kill them!
Go into the pond and collect the water (F) and hand the quest back into the NPC.
The Boss: Emberstone Golem
You've arrived at its Emberstone Lair! It is advised that you have some healing potions at hand just in case things get sticky even in Normal mode. He once knocked me into the lava that deals DoT (damage over time)!
Skill: Flame Earth Cut
He will raise his arms and remains stationary as he casts his Flame Earth Cut attack. It has a fairly large AOE damage to the front. Evade to its back within 2~2.9 seconds.
The AOE area is larger than you'd think so evade appropriately!
In harder difficulties
Skill: Summon Emberstone
The Emberstone Golem will summon three suicide bombers. Kill them immediately.
You can die from the suicide bombers so kill these ASAP.
Exit and Reset
Collecting Spark Before you leave the dungeon, it is a good idea to pick up some Dancing Flames from Spark. It is used to craft a Flame Heart which can tame a Magma Hound.
Upon the Golem's death, the Victory Shrine will spawn. Click or interact (F) with it to exit.
Dungeon Wait Time
To reset the dungeon, open the Dungeon List on / and hit the icon to reset the dungeon. This page is useful because it displays re-entry timers that count down live for you as well as tell you how many entries you have left for the day.
