Cavern of Dreams Secrets, Mysteries and Tips

It contains a collection of secrets (most of which need the flight ability, achieved by getting all the eggs), mysteries and a few missable stuff i found neat to point out

Ps: i didn’t create a section for the Cavern of Dreams because i found it easier to group them with the area they are connected with. For example, the small forest section right before the Lostleaf lake (while technically the Cavern of Dreams) i found it best to put it in the Lostleaf section

Lostleaf Lake

Conclusion: the box contained a powerful monster/magic, that on being opened froze time in the area it was in…this *technically* granted the King’s wish of eternal life, but not the way he probably imagined.

Unsolved Mysteries

Possible Hidden Dumpling area

If you read this guide, you probably noticed that there isn’t an area where you unlock the Dumplings.

Secrets, mysteries and interesting tidbits

We have the beach area where we unlocked the FISH inside it;

Secrets, mysteries and interesting tidbits

and the “red sky” area where we unlocked the Reapers inside it.

Secrets, mysteries and interesting tidbits

Oddly enough i haven’t found one for the Dumpling.

I’m not sure if there is one, but i speculate there is one area for each of the creatures we freed in the Airborne Armada cage area (Fire=Dumpling, Water=FISH, Wind=Reaper, Earth=Giant)

On the same note, i wonder if there might be an area for the Giants too…?

Healing the painting

In the Gallery of Nightmares, you are able to throw medicine (or split water) to “heal” the painting in the “Green area” (swamp area) as seen below

Secrets, mysteries and interesting tidbits

I haven’t discovered what this is for though, since i was able to finish the painting’s puzzle without it. I haven’t tested to see if it’s easier to solve the puzzle (since i believe the arrows will be easier to see)

Mystery unlock in the Heaven’s Path

If you put out all the fires in the area, you’ll hear the sound effect you normally get by completing a puzzle or unlocking something. Sadly i haven’t figured out what this does, hopefully someone will point that out in the comments and i’ll update this guide

  1. The secret of the dumpling area is simple. There are three flying fortresses surrounding Kerrington, and just as the entrance contains Reapers and the far off beach house contains FISH, the third one contains the dumplings. (The one where you save the egg from the fire.) Within the area, you have three rings which are sitting over fires, blocking them. Put out the fires, fly through the rings, and the dumplings will appear.

    Something noteworthy about the painting is that, before you “heal” it, those Eternals will remain staring longingly at the moon and those fake entrances with the evil laugh stay there to be triggered again. Upon healing the painting, both of these things disappear from the world alongside the once dead trees suddenly blooming green with life.

    If you check directly under the bridge within the Heaven’s Path area where you put the fires out, a red rubber duck should have spawned there. Which is interesting, considering the red duck within the frozen lake cave failed to spawn for me for whatever reason, leaving the cave empty.

    A couple of other things. While inside the control room in Airship Armada, you can see a pair of eyes staring in at you from outside the right windshield similar to the ones in the blue painting, which are quite notably not Kerrington’s own eye. In the area before the Gallery of Nightmares, if you fly off towards the right of the castle, you’ll find an entire empty area which is completely inaccessible otherwise. And in Sage’s dream area where the dragons from the Luna boss encounter reside, you can see a mysterious platform off in the distance which you can’t access. (I saw it just past the fourth dragon while flying close to it popping in and out of the skybox.) Couldn’t figure out what the point of any of these were, but it was neat nonetheless.

    One thing I did not check was the final boss fight area since you can’t go back to it after you beat it without clearing the whole game again.
