|The Resting Grounds... Passengers would come here to conduct rituals for those who had passed on...Not any more though. Perhaps the dead conduct their own rituals now?|
|– The Last Stag|
A large cemetery at the east end of Hallownest filled with graves and ornate tombstones. The Knight can first enter this area from Crystal Peak, the Forgotten Crossroads, or the City of Tears. Here they find the monument to and are given the locations of the Dreamers. They will also receive the Dream Nail.
Before The Knight receives the dream nail, the Resting Grounds is grey, empty and relatively colourless. However, after obtaining the Dream Nail, the Resting Grounds transforms into an area with a lively blue colour-tone with ghostly spirits floating throughout the foreground and backdrop.

Sub-area: Spirits' Glade
A glade where the souls of dead bugs came to rest. Most of the Kickstarter backer spirits can be found in this area.
Upon entering the Glade, Revek warns the Knight that they will face consequences if they harm any of the Glade's "inhabitants". Once Dream Nailing at least one ghost, Revek spawns and charges at the player, dealing 2 masks of damage. He cannot be damaged or defeated, but can be repelled by parrying, Dream Nailing or hitting him with the trail of the Crystal Heart's Super Dash. Doing so will despawn him only temporarily; he will keep appearing and attacking as long as there are ghosts in the Glade. Once all ghosts have been consumed, he himself can be Dream Nailed.
Points of Interest:
Sub-area: Shrine of Believers
A hidden area found by travelling behind the waterfall and into the room with the moth statues. Once here, jump to the top left of the room where there is a small hidden ledge to dream nail the largest moth's head to access the shrine. Contains a building full of breakable tablets displaying backer messages, guarded outside by the Unnamed Moth.
The inscriptions on the tablets of the Shrine can also be found here.
Sub-area: Blue Lake
A large lake of incandescent blue colour. Its water seeps through the ground to create the rain in the City of Tears. Quirrel will be found in this area after Monomon has been killed, and Tiso can be encountered here after meeting him in the Forgotten Crossroads. This is also the last time the Knight will encounter Quirrel, who will disappear after a final moment is spent with him, granting the achievement Witness.
