Whispering Death Caves

Near Berk’s Great Hall, there lies an ominous pit. Should you find yourself brave (or foolish) enough to explore these caves, it’s important to remember to be on your guard at all times.

A rope will lead you down into pitch-black caverns and winding tunnels. Don’t forget to listen for the Whispering Death flying about, as you will hear their screech long before you catch sight of them. Their echoing cries give the impression of an infinite number of dragons flying about, so don’t get too frightened. Whispering Deaths have completely adapted to living in dark environments, and are therefore comfortable living in the dim cave lighting, so remain focused, because they have the advantage in these caves!

Young Vikings who remain undeterred by the presence of a Whispering Death should also be on alert for other residents of these caves, such as spiders that spin massive, sticky webs. It is best to stay clear of them, as there is no telling how they would react to strangers on their turf. Further in, the darkness of the barren cave is broken by an underground lake. It is believed that this lake was formed by an opening under Berk, where ocean water gradually flowed in. Try your hand at fishing here – there are guaranteed to be a couple of surprises!

Now, young Vikings, this is important: Should you stumble upon Whispering Death eggs, it’s imperative that you don’t ignore them. Bring them to Hiccup after leaving the caves; he will make sure that they are well taken care of.

Once you have finished exploring the caves, return to the rope and climb back to the world above. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back: Not every Viking has the mettle to venture into the Whispering Death Caves!
