Azurymber's Travel guide. Version 2.
By Azurymber
All maps are X by Y (X being the numbers at the top and Y being the numbers at the side)

I can't read the text on the map so the names of places may be incorrect

New zones/battlefields: The Fesse, Hengr's Crucible, The Ayerie,
Gabearden(in gridania north forest)

Note: Getting to these places is worth it but hard. Also from what i can see, each "camp" has one zone to it in almost all areas. It holds true for coerthas at least, and i believe it holds true for all the other areas as well (except possibly mor dhona as i have not visited it yet)

Hopefully in a few days i'll have a list of the locations of every npc-blocked zone.
Also many of these "zones" may just be "battlefields" and not actual zones. But who knows?

I can't reach feathergorge or Wyrmking's Perch. I tried for hours ;x. if anyone has any ideas on how to get to either please let me know.

I have pics of almost every thing i describe here, so if you want them tell me the specific ones and i'll upload them. But its much cooler to go there for yourself. You can get to all these places with a lvl 1 rank 1 job, since most mobs 1-shot regardless of level.

Coerthas

The Fesse
Location: 53-23,24
Description: Blocked off by an npc named Wowotazi: "I've been given specific orders to prohibit all access to the Fesse.... using all necessary force. If you value your life, unbeliever, I suggest you withdraw at once.

Owls Nest
Location: 63-35 and the rest of the island-area on the map
How to get there: Cave at 59-31. Will have to get past foopad fomor type things that can prob 1-shot you
Description:
An NPC here tells you that the archbishop closed off Ishgard and will only let holy knights pass through the gate of judgement. This just made the game sound 10 times more awesome!!!! Religious fanatics are always fun.
Another NPC says to beware of ashpool and banepool far to the northwest and says that theres a taint of a dragon running deep there.
This village has some grass huts, some houses, and a windmill and stuff. its pretty awesome. definitely worth the trip.
The windmills sound effects when you go near are amazing.
I love this village, i would live here if i could lol.
There is an empty cave in the southeast that has a sewer grate in it

Airshop Dock
Location: 45-33
Description: A dock for an airship im guessing.

Millers Glade
Location 49-34,35 50-34,35
Description: An open area with green - red mobs at rank 20. There are 4 windmills here. They all have doors but you can't enter them yet. Kinda pretty to visit and the lake here is nice. I noticed they made these small strips of land at the edges. I think it might be for fishers because when i fished on ffxi all the japanese people would find the edges and go there to fish (I would too lol). Maybe SE caught on. Nice area though, worth a look since its easy to get to.

Getting to the northeastern part of the map (with camp crooked fork)
Directions: take the tunnel at 44-18

The Northeastern Fort (pemu viail)?
Location: 43-11
Description: An empty fort surrounded by high level mobs. There are a few of these forts surrounding Ishgard.

The Northern Fort (hleel viali)?
Location: 39-14 40-14
Description: an empty fort. there are a few of these forts around ishgard

The Northwestern Fort (hlona viali)
Location: 29-16
Description: an empty fort. there are a few of these forts around ishgard

The western Fort (pwhr viali)
Location: 18-14iioijkl
Description: an empty fort. there are a few of these forts around ishgard


Gwyr-Den (prob misspelt)
Location: 43-7
Description: This open area has no mobs and is home to a series of piles of stones in a circle. There is also a nice view of Ishgard from here. Not really worth taking a visit since it may take an hour to get past the 1-shot mobs.

Hengr's Crucible
Location: 42-1
Description: A cave blocked off by an NPC. Ladislas: "You have no business in Hengr's Crucible. Begone!"

Maidenmere (maiden glen lake)
location: 55,56,57-7
description: A pretty lake in the mountains. Not much of interest that i saw.

Revan's Cell Canyon
Location: 60-13 60-14
Description: the end of a canyon. Populated by redwing Ked (giant bee type things with cockroach like feelers and 6 wings). Nothing of interest here really.

The Henlinel (spelling is prob wrong)
Location: 54-16
Description: one lone tree on a hill surrounded by inferno drakes. Kind of a pretty tree standing there alone on the edge of a cliff, but nothing too interesting.

Ferndela
Location: 48-15
Description: Nothing here at all. just raptors.

Falcon's Nest
Location: 19-28 and the surrounding island of land
Description: A beautiful town nesteled away in the mountains. Accessible by a cave at 19-27. Watch out though since the cave has toads and bats which can 1 or 2-shot a rank 20/lvl 25 marauder. This town is hostile to outsiders. An NPC here talks about to many men leaving due to summons by the archbishop and never returning due to being killed by dragons. Another NPC talks about an airship landing between the coerthas and swiftrun rivers. She says that there are dragon attacks there so pilots have stopped landing there as much. There as empty cave at the back. There is also a stone tower but it cannot be entered.
Another npc says the following
"A man must gaze not upon the eyes of a dragon.
A man must hearken not the words of a dragon
A man must lay his hands not upon the flesh nor blood of a dragon.
The archbishop, his Holiness, declares thus, and thus it is law"

Twinpools atherite
Location: 8-18
Description: Right next to the twinpools atherite is a beautiful lake.

Cannot Reach the island at 2-16, 3-16, 2-17, 3-17
Tried caves on both south and north side but dead ends with bombs.

The Ayerie
Location: 11-10
Description: A zone blocked off by an NPC named Hersande, who talks about dragon activity lessening recently leading them to beleive the dragons are "contriving something ill, hoping that we grow complacent in the meanwhile."

-BONUS-
Gridania - North Forest Sights

SUB ZONE - The Mun-Tuy Cellars
Location: 23-18 / 24-18 and 20-13 (harder to get to entrance)
Description: A BEAUTIFUL underground man-enhanced cave with stone brick walls and squirrels!
There are doors that require you to choose the open action, with food stores inside. Beware though, high level wisps and bats will eat you within (i got 2 shotted at phys 25 and rank 20)
Many paths on the map are blocked off by fallen stones.
Much of the area is populated by Opo-opos.
By travelling through the Mun-Tuy Cellars you can reach young galagos and Yarzon feeders at the 20-13 entrance (you can also reach them by land but its difficult due to wolf agro). These con blue at rank 20 and can be solod at level 15 or prior.
The Mun-Tuy Cellars is worth a visit just for the beautiful design.

Hyerstmill
Location: 24-13
Description: A lovely little hamlet built with the consent of the elementals. A haven for Gridanian warriers that spends most of its time tending to archers wounded by the Ixal. Worth a stop, but not an essential place to visit yet .

The Creeping Ivy
Location: 21-10
Description: The marlboro seen in one of the trailers. There are a few of these in different places, but this mob looks -amazing-. Worth taking a trip out here to see it. Might have to pass some 1-shot lvl 50 mobs however.

Galmorre Ruins + Crowd Creep (sp)
Location: 21-8,7,6,5,4
Description: Galmorre Ruins is a stone platform, which probably used to have a fort on it. Its guarded by waterdogs, and there is one or 2 ixali (lizardman type beastmen) around it. If you go past the Galmorre ruins you get to crowd creep or something like that (look on the map). This is just a nice path with a waterfall at the end and a bunch of quiqern mercenaries.
There is nothing special about this place, and it took me 4 hours +, and over 100 deaths to reach it. So if you are brave, its worth seeing. The waterfall is really pretty too :p.

Gabearden (Spelling definitely wrong)
Location: 25-7
Description: Npc named rimomo says "If it were up to me, I would let you pass. But my orders are to let none through. Please go, before there's trouble".
There is a door in a rock wall that seems to lead to a cave. Can't get through it sadly.

I recently submitted about 50 pictures each of a different mob in Coerthas to zam (after finishing up mhor dona), so sometime soon they should start popping up in the database, actually gonna see if I can nail the rest of the zone tonight.

:D

I translated all of the maps so far for my guild, so after two or so, reading Eorzean got to be pretty easy. Let me know if you need any other translations!

I think I know how to reach Wyrmking's Perch. Sadly, it looks as if it's going to be impossible to get to the area without a pretty massively coordinated effort.

Go to Camp Riversmeet. Directly north is a hidden tunnel in the wall. I believe you can get there through this tunnel. The only problem is that it's full of aggro mobs. The toads and bats in the beginning of the tunnel are navigable... I died about 15+ times trying it. Luckily the camp is about 5 seconds away. The only problem is once you get past the bats and toads, you come to a choke point in the cave, littered with about 10 Bomb mobs.

"A man must gaze not upon the eyes of a dragon.
A man must hearken not the words of a dragon
A man must lay his hands not upon the flesh nor blood of a dragon.
The archbishop, his Holiness, declares thus, and thus it is law"

Don't look at dragons,
Don't talk to dragons,
Don't touch dragons,
Because the archbishop says so.

Why do I suddenly have the feeling that the dragons may have legitimate grievances?

I wouldn't call it reading Eorzean exactly, it's just English in a wacky font :P
Kudos to you for learning it though, I still can't read half the symbols.


If anyone wants to see a chart of the alphabet written normally and then in their crazy font check out the bottom of this page.
