As I was doing the Not So Stale quest, I found a shortcut in the parkour section of the maze! And since I had to go through the maze again for the last key, I decided to make a video showing where the shortcut is! 

 

https://youtu.be/YPduMTFsJc0

 

It's not a major shortcut but does make this section a little quicker to get through.

Which chest are you trying to

Which chest are you trying to find? 

 

Each chest (except for the final 10th one) is behind a door in one of the round rooms with the Snow Viking in the center. 

 

So for the first chest, it's in the one before the "Everyone likes sweets" puzzle

 

After you get the key go through the maze and at each round room just check all the doors to see if a door is open and has the locked chest.

Great shortcut... And there's another one not far behind!

I just found this shortcut in the gear section! It's really useful!

And there's another one not far after, with the snow dragons. In the -I think it's a Whispering D.eath snow dragon- the devs added a portal with "Tuff's secret tunnel"/"Keep out".

This portal is blue, and brings you directly to the very end of the maze, right with the reward chest!

Name origin: I only wanted "DarkOwl" but the game went all "hey, already taken. Next!", so I brought the "of Fareothor" from an OC I've created years ago for a fanfic. In the HTTYD world, my character Dark Owl, very fond of these birds of prey, is from the island of Fareo, under the protection of Thor, hence the "Fareothor".

I'm thinking of writing my OC's backstory, it's on the to-do-list...

Currently not looking for a clan, I'm more of a lone rider than a pack rider.

Fandoms (very unexhaustive and unordered list): HTTYD, Kaamelott (French series on the Arthurian myth), the Dragon Prince, Tangled the Series (last two: discovered during quarantine), Tales of Arcadia, The Owl House, Avatar the Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Noob (French web-series about video-games), The Deep, Les Misérables musical (one of the first movies to really help me learn English better than school ^^), Doctor Who, His Dark Materials, Marvel, DC, Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones (no spoiler please, I have barely started the second volume), and many more...

Swiftail, stop running in the shortcuts!

Here's how the other shortcut looks like:

 

It's just after the gear level with the first shortcut showed in this topic (the pink/light purple one you arrive to when climbing the climbing walls as high as possible, there's had been a portal added that directly brings you to the Night Lights at the end of the section).

This "Tuffnut secret tunnel" shortcut is even better: it brings you at once at the very end of the maze to the reward chest!

 

Good game to all!

Yup, finished it

I finished the maze through this shortcut, yes, and more than once.

I noticed there was a small update of the game though, not one that needs you to nearly reinstall the game, just one that takes longer than usual to load. Maybe you hadn't receive it yet?

Brrr

There's another shortcut in the statue moving maze. It's completely useless because it only warps you to the buttons the statues go on. Also your Vikings speed has increased when moving the statues.

Thankfully you don’t need to

Thankfully you don’t need to do that whole section if you take the Whispering Death Snow Shortcut!

__________________

Hi, this is Kay’s signature. Although I only joined the forum recently, I have been on SoD for over six years - my very first dragon was my Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmare, Hooky.

 

Things I would love to see from SoD:

- More Islands! A Defender of the Wing Island, another Dragon Hunter Island, Whispering Death Island. A Monstrous Nightmare and Typhoomerang Island would be epic too. Maybe class Islands? There you could see stoker class dragons on Stoker Island (it may have volcanoes or something?), and tidal class dragons on Tidal Island (lots of lakes and waterfalls?). Also, how have Outcast and Berserker Island never been a thing in game? They're as important as Berk and New Berk!

- More expansion packs! I would gladly pay gems if it means I could do more quests and get cool dragons.

 

I hope the devs see this!

Mint ate my subject and Dart blasted my lunch...

I actually found several others!

 

-First shortcut is The snowball one. After running past the first snowball, wait for the second one. When it passes, RUN RIGHT to the next opening. When the last snowball rolls, run to the right again and you will see the pink-thingy portal.

-next is the parkour one! You all saw that one.

-Rock wall shortcut; when you enter the wall maze thing, go to your LEFT and you will see that one.

-Actual Maze short cut; this one is not the best so might as well skip it.

 

-Tuffnuts Secret passage... In the snowdragon room theres the portal to the prize.

 

Hope this helps! :)

So I speedrun the maze in 3:15 minutes

You can skip about 80% of the whole parcour section and then take the shortcut at the snow statues. Just follow the link and look the way I took to get around. It is really simple! I know I am a bit late but hope it helps!

Oh yes there are lots of

Oh yes there are lots of shortcute in the maze

One shortcut is the Groncicle snow statue one where you continue running left fro the giant snowballs until a purple portal appears.

The next is in the cogs part, you keep on climbing up in the climbing part and then there is a sign which says keep out and there is a small platform, step on it and you finish the whole cogs part.

Then there is the big one which just finishes the rest of the maze for you but you need to complete Not So Stale to get it.

After in the climbing maze part, keep on turning left when you can and then you will reach another sign saying keep out, then there is a portal after a few steps in front of it, it maagics you to the end part of the maze, you just need to climb a little bit more to finish it.

And then the final one when you have to push the groncicle statues there is one where if you are lost you go in it and it portals you to the three button things on the ground, i cant remeber how to get there. 

Thats all i got.

Venus - First dragon (sand wraith)

 

The night was silent except for the light slap of her bare feet against the rocky ground. She would not have been able to navigate herself through the pitch-black sky if it were not for the tiny specks of light littered across the sky like snowflakes on a field, or for the dim flickering of the torchlight she clutched tightly in her fist. 

The wind snaked throught the trees and nipped at her toe before sneaking up to her head and whipping her chocolate hair into a tousled mane. Her mouth was dry in the chilly night but she continued sprinting to the steps.

I say 'steps' but of course, it was rather difficult to differentiate those 'steps' from pathetic lumps of rocks clumsily piled on top of one another. 

She slipped and skidded on the steps, lightly grazing her knees and elbows, but landed at the bottom in manner rather graceful for a 7 year old.

She became quieter now; stopped sprinting and instead was creeping along the sandy floor, tides gently lapping at her feet. 

Her eyes were wide and twinkling with anticipation. She tiptoed to the far end of the beach, and to a rocky cave like structure, her small hands spread on the coarse surface like a starfish. 

She whispered 'venus' and slowly but surely, a magnificent dragon, giant too; nearly 10 times her size, crept out and cocked his head. He was coloured rich red with spatters of black on his back, and thin, silvery grey lines running down the centre of his spikes. She slid closer to him and offered him a small, slightly burnt, chicken leg, which he almost immediately snatched from her hand, although carefully so as not to hurt her.

He playfully butted her ribcage with his head and the little girl, too small to bear his weight, collapsed on the side, giggling. He bounded on her and licked her face so it was coated in thick dragon saliva, and rested his head on her stomach. She scratched his neck and closed her eyes, allowing his deep rumbling breathing to lull her to sleep.

 

Riddle - (stormcutter)

 

The loud jeers of the crowd were deafening. The aroma of mead around the arena was so strong that it watered your eyes, but it didn’t seem as if any of the Vikings cared. They drunkenly staggered outside the arena, hollering at the bloodied dragons inside.  

 

It was the Winter Festival in Berk.

 

The wild serpents, tearing at each other’s throats, lashing and lunging at each other in a mad frenzy was something the Viking audience thirsted to see. The more blood, the better. Heavily armed Vikings wrapped in armour twice their size, so heavy that it would be a miracle if they managed walking a few steps, stood behind the giant wooden doors, provided that at least half of the door was still intact and not burnt to smithereens. They held onto 10-foot-long pikes, thrusting it at the hides of the beasts to further aggravate them and provide a more enjoyable entertainment for the audience. 

The dead dragon carcasses were kicked to the side and sand thrown on top of the bloodied puddles to make way for a new fight.

Behind the door sat caged dragons. They were the ones that were going to fight this evening. 

One particularly large beast was proving very difficult to be baited out in the arena. Several Vikings tugged at the thick and heavy ropes tied to her neck but she wouldn’t move more than an inch. Chestnut eyes, a magnificent hide, glossy and cream coloured and talons sharp and silver like a dagger, she hissed and spat at the Vikings. One set of her wings were raised up in the air as if to intimidate them, and the other set was nailed tight on the ground, an anchor that prevented her from giving way to the Vikings. The rest of the Vikings left their post to bait the four winged beast into the arena, and slowly but surely, she inched forwards. She lashed at their heads and swung her tail but protected with thick metal chains, they had managed to drag her into the arena to the leering faces of the crowd. There was cheering as she let her first blast of fire...

 

A hooded figure slinked into the cage that had once contained the stormcutter and ran to the corner of it. Just as she had suspected, a baby dragon was hidden in the shadows. He was a tiny baby, curled up and trembling. She dropped down to her knees and tossed the remains of the feast to the baby stormcutter. 

 

He flinched but when she stepped back, he crawled to the salmon grabbed it and returned to his corner to finish it off.

He looked up at her wide eyed.

“I’m going to name you.. Riddle,” she whispered, in awe of the tiny thing.

 

((if you didnt understand why there was a hooded figure rescuing this dragon but a 7 year old girl rescuing the other, it was the same seven year old girl, but she has grown))
