Mutant Bug Lair
After completing either the Bundles inside the Community Center or restoring the Joja Warehouse and completing the tasks there a quest will open up. The Wizard will have a cutscene with the player when they enter the railroad area and request they find a Dark Talisman.
To find the Dark Talisman players must speak to Krobus, who will open access to the Mutant Bug Lair through The Sewers. Inside the Mutant Bug Lair is a chest which holds the Talisman, which can then be placed directly on the artifact blocking the cave to open the path.
The Mutant Bug Lair isn't very large, so players should have no problem finding the chest with the Talisman inside. They should be equipped to encounter enemy monsters though, as there are a number of Mutant Grubs and Mutant Flies inside. It is the only location where the Slimejack can be caught. It also contains Carp. Fishing here is especially dangerous because the Mutant Flies continuously spawn and attack the player.
