Howling Caves is an area of the Gyala Delve that lies beneath the Jade Sea, it can be seen that there are several mines where miners from the Jade Brotherhood extract the dragonjade. In the place you can see how the vegetation grows in what used to be a sea, just like there was a collapse in the Behemoth's Drop.

Locations and objectives[edit]

Getting there

If unfamiliar with the area, from the Waypoint (map icon).png Park Mining Ops Waypoint, head toward the large processing area between the Excavation Yard and The Hollow (looks like 3 blades around greenish center piece). Follow along the pathway, heading to the left and then down into the Howling Caves.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

North of Behemoth's Gap Base (random between these two discussions)
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): I've never seen readings like this. Stronger and stronger as we descend...
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Hurry up. Too dangerous down here. Need to get back up, head to the surface.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Up? No, we need to continue downward. I suspect the readings down there—
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): You wanna go deeper? You're on your own! Seems like when your readings are high, so's the chance I'm gonna get killed!
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Get a hold of yourself! Chul-Moo ordered you—
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Notice how Chul-Moo isn't here? I ain't budging!
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Energy reading is off the charts. The deeper we go...
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Hurry up. Too dangerous down here. Need to get back up, head to the surface.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): I'm afraid not, friend. We need to keep descending! This opportunity can't be missed!
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Forget it, I ain't going any farther down! Not gonna get myself killed for your precious readings!
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Chul-Moo put me in charge, not you. You will follow my orders—
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Well he ain't here, is he? I'm not taking another step down this cave.
At Behemoth's Gap Base (if not contested)
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): I think they finally found Hiah.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Hauled her out in chains. Laughing or crying—I couldn't see her face. They'd shoved a helmet on her. Backward.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): What the...? Why?
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Said she was a traitor, turned on her crew.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): Okay... But why the backward helmet?
Jade Brotherhood Miner (1): Tried to chew her way out when she couldn't break the chains.
Jade Brotherhood Miner (2): I'm... I'm gonna be sick.
