DQ8-Waterfall Cave

The Waterfall Cave (滝の洞窟, Taki no dōkutsu) is the first dungeon of Dragon Quest VIII.


After the hero, Yangus and Trode are chased out of Farebury by people believing Trode to be a monster, a girl, Valentina follows them out and asks for their help in finding her father Kalderasha's Crystal ball, which was lost in the cave.

The Hero and Yangus enter the cave, and find the crystal ball, guarded by Geyzer, a merman who was hit on the head when the crystal ball was dropped into the waterfall. They defeat him, and return the crystal ball to Kalderasha.


At one point in the dungeon, a Hammerhood blocks your path; answering Yes to his question will allow you to continue. If you talk to him again, and say Yes again, you can fight him, though it is optional. He can only be fought once and no other Hammerhoods are encountered in the area.
