Trivia

  • This is the area the player is seen traversing through in the opening cutscene. At the northeast part of the cliffs, the same ledge with the lamppost can be found that the player jumps at the end of said cutscene.
  • Based on a lore tablet in this area, once a bug reaches beyond here, they will lose sentience (the "precious mind") that the Kingdom of Hallownest grants, turning them instinctual beasts, driven only by the drive of survival:

"Higher beings, these words are for you alone. These blasted plains stretch never-ending. There is no world beyond. Those foolish enough to traverse this void must pay the toll and relinquish the precious mind this kingdom grants"

  • Once the player has acquired the Crystal Heart, it is technically possible to super dash from a ledge on the eastern side of the Howling Cliffs over to the Stag Nest without having to unlock every Stag Station.
  • It is also possible to reach Stag Nest by having the Monarch Wings and luring two Vengeflys to nail-bounce to reach the ledge.
  • Due to a glitch with the physics when holding the map out, if the player pulls out the map while being pushed by the wind, the player would be pushed faster. Sometimes continuously be moving rightwards past the wind’s end.
  • The player can access the bottom area of howling cliffs (where the Baldur Shell charm is present) without the Mantis Claw, but the upper section where the winds are blowing and where Nailmaster Mato is present must be accessed with the Claw.
