Whisperwind Cove is a new 40-level Soul of Chaos dungeon added in the Dawn of Souls release of Final Fantasy I. It is an optional dungeon, located north of the Cavern of Ice along the narrow river paths. Access is granted once players have defeated the Fiend of Wind, Tiamat.

Astute Final Fantasy fans might recognize the bosses contained in Whisperwind Cove, as they all previously appeared in Final Fantasy VI (not to be confused with Final Fantasy III). Players will need to run the entirety of Whisperwind Cove in order to see all four new bosses.

It is highly recommended that you save your game before entering Whisperwind Cove! It is also highly recommended that you do not save inside Whisperwind Cove, as once you enter, there is no way out except by defeating a boss or by being defeated by any enemy.

Entrance Area[edit]

A lone Lufenian keeps watch over the entrance area. If you haven't defeated Tiamat yet, you can't continue beyond this point. WARNING: Once you enter the nearby door, you will be unable to return to this area. Also, the White Magic spell Exit and Black magic spell Teleport will not function further inside! Enter the door when ready. And it is highly recommended that you have two save files for this dungeon, one saved outside of the dungeon and one to have inside the dungeon to save every few floors. Incase of emergency load old save file and not lose gil if you are experimenting with this dungeon.
