Whealbrook Adit

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Whealbrook Adit is a location in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.

It is a cavern behind the village of Whealbrook. This is the first dungeon encountered, though the player cannot access parts of it until after the first timeskip.


Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

Early on, The Young Hero wanders into these caverns, where he discovers Mr. Rockefeller was caught by a boulder, and helps free him.

Later, after the first timeskip, a now older Hero along with Harry revisited these caverns to find Pankraz's storage chamber, where they found a letter from him detailing his quest for the legendary hero, as well as the Zenithian sword he stashed away.
