- Rokol Caverns
The first area is empty, but when moving further into the cave the cadets are met with Imperial Troopers and a Supersoldier with an SO to fell the Supersoldier with the leader for a Mythril Gloves. The player should go after him first to avoid the allies downing him.
The next area has more Imperial Troopers and a single Supersoldier.
The third area has a few Militesi Coeurls alongside the Troopers and a Supersoldier.
The fourth area has more Imperial Troopers will and an Autoturret behind a barrier on the left side. The area's SO requires destroying the Autoturret with the party leader for a Gold Bangle.
From the fourth area the player has the option of heading down the optional eastern path to another area with more Imperial Troopers. There's a treasure chest here that contains an item (First Aid Kit/Support Serum).
Continuing on the intended path following the yellow marker, the sixth area has more Imperial Troopers and Militesi Coeurls, and a Supersoldier Commanding Officer (Second Lieutenant Lewis) with an the SO to defeat him within a minute for a Mythril Ring.
- Cavern Depths
This area has no enemies but the cadets must examine the briefcase on the ground before being ordered to exit the caverns. On the way back out LV52 Flame Flan will spawn in all areas.
- Rokol Caverns
Blizzard spells work well against Flame Flan, and it is generally easy to get Killsights on flan anyway. However, the cadets can simply bypass the flan to go to the next area with more Flame Flan. There is an SO here to "exploit the enemies' weakness": ice. Using an ice attack on them yields a Phoenix Pinion.
The rest of the trek back out has nothing but more Flame Flan, so the cadets can run past them to the entrance to finish the mission.
- Gla. XXIII – The Clash in the Caverns
After losing the Iscah Region, imperial officials disbanded the army that had suffered such heavy losses against the dominion and reorganized their forces at Renown Base in Meroë. Their strategy was to combine the troops who retreated with reinforcements from the capital in order to oppose the dominion legions.
Meanwhile, the imperial army managed to obtain a briefcase containing classified dominion military information during their occupation of Rubrum, and that case was now en route to Milites. However, the dominion legions discovered the team responsible for transporting the case and immediately gave chase. A pursuit and subsequent battle ensued, and the legionaries chased the imperial squad deep into the Rokol Caverns. Utterly frustrated, the commandant ordered a cadet task force to storm the caverns and reobtain all the stolen documents. The cadets completed their mission and prevented the classified information from falling into imperial hands.
