Whispering Roots.png

Whispering Roots are roots filled with Essence found throughout Hallownest. When the Knight hits a Whispering Root with the Dream Nail, it spawns floating Essence throughout the surrounding area for the Knight to collect.

After collecting all Essence in the area, the root grows to a much larger size. Using the Dream Nail on it again will reveal dream dialogue giving vague hints as to the history of that area.

After acquiring the Dream Nail, a Whispering Root Pin can be purchased from Iselda for Geo.png150, which reveals the locations of every Whispering Root in an area after that area's Map has been purchased.

There are 15 Whispering Roots in the game, containing a total of 482 Essence.
