Whispering Depths Location in Baldur’s Gate 3
To get to Whispering Depths, you need to head to the Blighted Village, which is filled with goblins. There are two paths in this area, each of which you can use to reach your destination:
- The first way is to climb down the rope of the well, located in Blighted Village at coordinates X:25 and Y:400. To access the rope, you will need to start the dialogue with the well and select the Investigate option. You’ll have to pass an Intelligence check with a difficulty class of 10 to descend into the Whispering Depths.
- The second way is to go through the cracked wall in the basement of the Blacksmiths. Make an Investigation check to identify the wall you need, then break it down to enter Whispering Depths.
Keep in mind that both of these ways are in the Blighted Village, which is infested with goblins, so be ready to either kill them to clear the path or convince them to let you move freely around the village.

Whispering Depths Walkthrough
Inside Whispering Depths, you’ll need to head straight to the first left turn. Once there, you will enter a small area that doesn’t have any monsters but has items that will definitely come in handy as you make your way through the area. Check out the Heavy Chest, and you’ll find Spiderstep Boots, which will allow you to move freely across surfaces with spider webs. In addition, you’ll find four scrolls in the Wicker Chest, and you’ll find plenty of gold and other goodies in the skeletons and old backpacks scattered around the area.
After you continue your journey through Whispering Depths, you will encounter Phase Spiders and Ettercaps. They can teleport; that’s why we recommend that you prepare your party before heading into Whispering Depths by maximizing your ranged damage. In addition, you will need the Spiderstep Boots you found a little earlier, and you can also make use of the Misty Step scroll while fighting spiders to reach them.
After a few fierce fights with Phase Spiders and Ettercaps, you will enter the boss arena. There, you’ll face off against the Phase Spider Matriarch, which is resistant to poison and can debuff the characters’ eyesight, making their attacks weaker. When you defeat the boss, you’ll find a direct path to The Underdark in this area. However, you’ll need to jump into a deep chasm to get there, so it’s best to have Feather Fall to avoid taking unnecessary damage.
