Area City of Tears

The enormous capital of Hallownest and heart of the once great Kingdom, now crawling with the husks of foolish noblebugs and guards still devoted to their duties.

Water from the massive Blue Lake above continuously leaks down, bathing the City of Tears in permanent rainfall.

The City is initially only accessible from the Fungal Wastes by opening the main gate using the City Crest, however there are several other ways of entering it with upgrades later on.

Sub-area: Pleasure House

Area Royal Quarter
Pleasure House Map

The Pleasure House is a sub Area in the City of Tears that can be opened with a Simple Key.

The entrance is located here. When taking the elevator, there are 5 floors that it won't stop at.

Higher up, there is a Hot Spring and a resting Bench, where Millibelle is found later after she ran away with the deposited money. There is a breakable wall beside the resting bench that allows access from the elevator to the Resting Grounds. The exploration of the Pleasure House is not necessary for the 100% completion of the game, however, it is a good resting spot and allows easy access to the Resting Grounds.
