Maybe it's too early to ask but has anyone tried to check out any of the little towns that were closed off during beta and see if they're open now?

Weren't they open in OB? If you're talking about port towns they were open during OB but if there are other small towns i'm getting excited just thinking about them... :P

I didn't think so. I heard people saying there were still many closed off areas in OB.

Outside Ul'dah is the Gold <something> and the Silver <something> and they seem to be rival trading hubs of sorts. I was disappointed in OB that you couldn't buy/sell things there. Haven't made my way out to them yet though..

Im copy pasting this from a word file but look through it to find some of the coerthas blocked off zones and check if they are open if you want.


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
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.

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.:
