Final Fantasy Wiki

The Dwarven Hollows, also known as Dwarf Cave, is the underground home of the dwarves in Final Fantasy III. Many greet visitors with a hearty "Lali-ho!"

The inn here charges 80 gil. The dwarves' treasury contains equipment for Scholars and Knights, as well as some regular items, but the treasury cannot be accessed until the party returns the Horns of Ice to the dwarves. A Revification spring can be found.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

When the Warriors of Light first arrive, the dwarves are concerned about the stealing of one of the Horns of Ice from the sacred shrine and point to Gutsco as the thief. Gutsco the Rogue has fled with it to the Subterranean Lake and the warriors pursue and defeat him, retrieving the Horn. As they return to the dwarven village to place the Horn of Ice back, Gutsco, who followed the warriors ever since his defeat, takes the chance and steals both Horns, this time running to the Molten Cave.

After defeating Gutsco once and for all at the Molten Cave, the dwarves reward the Light Warriors with their treasury. Upon leaving the settlement, a resident from the town of Tokkul rushes into the cave, pleading for the help of the Warriors of the Light.
