Description

A field of peaceful meadows that are part of the Tavnazian Archipelago - a tiny island off the west coast of Quon which was once home to the proud nation of Tavnazia. Before the Crystal War, this region was actually a peninsula connected with the mainland. However, a devastating explosion caused by a secret weapon of the beastmen resulted in the disintegration of a large portion of the surrounding landscape.

The explosion also sent the nation's capitol, a city built on the profits of its thriving trade business, into ruin. The remnants of the beastmen army remain in control of the archipelago, and until now, it was thought that none of the former inhabitants had survived.

Points of Interest

  • The ruins of Tavnazia can be viewed from the ledge at Blueblade Fell at J-6.
  • Zone into Tavnazian Safehold at E-8.
  • Powerful monsters lurk in the clearing at J-7, K-7 and L-7.
  • Fomar mobs appear throughout the zone during evening hours.
  • The swirling vortex at K-8 leads to Valkurm Dunes.

Map

The Map of Tavnazia, which includes Lufaise Meadows, is a reward from the quest Unforgiven.

Logging

Fishing

Fisherman can fish in the rivers at G-9 or F-8, the lagoon at I-7 and I-8 or the seaside at H-10 and I-10.

I was wondering how to get access to Lufaise Meadows? I heard that you have to go to the 3 Promyvians (Holla, Dem, and Mea), but do you have to fight anything or just go to one, erase your memory and go to another? This has confused me for a while now, and I hope to get this cleared up, cause I'm lvling BLU and I want to fight the clusters in the meadows for refueling.

You have to complete all three promies, meaning doing the bcnm for each at the top.

Ok, i was in Tavnazia an hour early for my LS's Gration event, so i decided to camp Megalobugard, after about 30 mins of camping i was running to the north and in the sky i saw a huge bird in the sky, not targetable, like it was made into the sky, it was grayish purple and looked as if it was flying towards 'Blublade Fell' any idea wth this is? It didn't look like Bahamut and my first thought was that it was a cameo of Phoenis or something. Anyone else seen this?

I know that the dragons appear in the sky at sunset and sunrise. You can see them at H-8...but you can see them very good at J-6 above old Tavnazia. There are two of them, and they circle the unaccessable hilltop in the distance at Blueblade Fell. Thats prolly what you saw.

I really wish SE would come back and look into opening more up at Lufaise Meadows, and the surrounding areas. So much unused potential there...and such a beautiful spot! Like old Tavnazia (and the sharks along the shores of Bibiki Bay's islands) the dragons are not accessable for interaction.

I took a picture of me and my gf along the clif at Blueblade Fell at sunset just before the Fomor came out. We used sneak, waited for the dragons and I took a few screenshots. Real beautiful pictures, if I do say so myself. Gonna upload them onto my memory stick and make myself a new wallpaper for my PSP.

I know that this is late coming, but so is my access to Tavnazia. Almost 3 years and I finally get Promy 1-3 finished 2 days ago.

Finishing Promy 1-3 (Promy Mea, Holla and Dem) gives you access to Misereaux Coast, Lufaise Meadows, and Tavnazian Safehold.

Sea is much later in the Promethia storyline. They are two seperate (yet related) areas.

Hope this helps.

San d'Oria finally gained control of the Tavnazian Archipelago, so I got all set to do the supply run: I get to the gate guard, and... nothing. He wouldn't let me flag this supply run, even though I have access to the area. I'm on PM 3-5, would I possibly have to be higher than that?

Story connections.

The passageway at J-8 on the map leads you north east to an area with deadly mobs (good experience area for 70+ people). Abraxas birds like to prey on unwary people. Beyond this area... a little to further east and north you will find Blueblade Fell.

This is, of course, the city from the CGI movie that introduces the game to all new players! Your standing on the cliff and seeing the city completes the game cycle in that you "become" one of the many adventurers who are on the cliff in the opening movie.

Tavnazia was the first target of the combined Beastmen army and this is also shown in the opening cinematic. As for poor young Aldo, I like to think that he got adopted somehow (pirates along the coast most likely), lived in Norg for awhile then worked his way to be leader of the Tenshodo trade organization. The fact that they look the same and play such a heavy role in the story lead me to believe they are the same Aldo!

I had a sudden craving to get to this area, and I did. I worked my *** of for 2 days, surviving crappy promy-parties and various idiots, until I managed to finish them all, and it was definitely worth it. This place is awesome. I didn't get far because I was on my BLM28 and got roffled after about 10 minutes of exploring, but what I saw I liked.
(Just for reference my promy setups were

Mea: SMN RNG BLM BLM WHM PLD

Well...

This does sound intruiging!
I doubt SE would just cut off the remainder of our beloved Final Fantasy summons at only what we have now... how would Summoner be any fun that way? lol Windurst also has a history of lying about things and covering things up...

Besides if you can find a picture of the FFXI Limited Edition Soundtrack, you'll notice a TON of avatars surrounding a giant (I'm guessing) Goddess Altana, which include a VERY obvious Odin, Ixion/Pegasus and one that could possibly be a Diablos (amongst others, including the ones already in the game).

I'd put my guesses on Odin for this "Ancient Shield" bit, seeing as I doubt we'll ever get Bahamut all to ourselves =P And the fact that the fields seem like a perfect place for an Odin figure, what with all the hellish Fomors lurking around from the dead.

I'm also guessing GETTING this shield will invlove a **** of a lot of work >.< Probably killing all the avatars AGAIN >.< Gawd..

Or of course this could just end up having nothing to do with avatars at all... lol

Yeah, it has nothing do with Odin. It's for upgrading the relic shield, which drops in Dynamis-Jeuno. I think you trade the shield to the ??? or something and an HNM spawns that you have to kill to get the next stage of the shield.

I was exploring this area and well first I found a area with a ??? mark in the forest of Walking trees and fomor's (both EP with low evasion) at (G-6)

and I also found a ??? point in a blocked off cave past the giant birds (which con T-VT to a lvl 69RDM) at (K-6)

and when I clicked on it. it said "Bring me the Ancient Shield and The Pact will be acknowledged."

this got me thinking that there was either a new summon or some new powers for the existing
summons.

the I thought you know that kinda sounds like something Bahamut or Odin would say. LOL

Does anybody know what this is for and/or how to get the Ancient Shield.

Allah dosen't have anything on this yet, so just wondering.

In order to get in the meadows, you need to complete the chapter one of Chains of Promathia. You will need to finish the three Promyvions quests. Its not an easy task.

I'll submit this tonite when i am not at work.
There is a Sheep NM in here called Padfoot:

Appearance - Look like any bloody oirdinairy sheep.

level - No idea, I was 61rdm/10rng and it hardly hit me. I guess around 40-45.

Attacks - Usual sheep attacks. Sheep Charge and Sheep Song I noticed

Spawn - In the three main area's with Bugard, Orc Gigas and Sheep. Wide scan is a must, hard to find/claim otherwise

Time - not sure on this. I heard it was a 3-24 spawn rate.

Special - There is a slight chance more then one spawn in the same frame. I have seen two of them on WideScan while logging/NM hunting
Second one was claimed as i came near. Killed first.

Drops - Hehe the good stuff for last, Sheep Skin, Lanolin Cube, Earth Crystal, Astral Earring (level 45, converts 25 hp to mp, all jobs). I got one on the second sheep last nite, sells for about 3 million on bismarck

Any luck on this?
I got some more info. Spawn seem to be 24 hours give or take a few minutes. There are always 3 Padfoot spawning in any possible area containing sheep. Use widescan. Also i suggest going in there with a high level job as most mobs agro to one thing or another until 60. Even then watch out, i got agro from a tough elemental yesterday and barely survived as i was at low MP as 61rdm/10rng. [Sleep] II [Yes, please]

Also i got a second earring of a padfoot again, sold it for 3.3 million. I would use it if i had a free slot, but i prefer my cunning earring, moldavite earring and a healthy set of orange kuchen for MP.

Whoops, late reply but anyways:
Near the Tower on F-7
Near the bridge on G-10
Near the Megalobugard pop around tower G-7/G-8/H-7/H-8
At the Lagoon I-7/I-8
Grass area H-9/H-10

I really suggest widescan (if u have bst levelled use that to claim with charm)

Once every 24 hours hree or four Padfoot will spawn, and after chatting with other campers the droprate is reasonable good BUT
only one of the spawn will drop!
1 Spawn is real, the rest is fake and will drop normal sheep stuff.

I am now 3/3 on this one but a friend of mine is 1/7 (we got last one together)

i was aimlessly looking around this area and i went to look near blueblade fell. i went a lvl 62PLD/NIN everything in the zone was too weak or EP. i walked down this tunnle and found a type of greater bird. -not a NM!!- what was weird was it was IT++ and slighty bigger then any normal greaterbird... i didant go farther then that. it kinda spooked me a bit.

( make not im a PLD lol evn somtimes checks ++ )

I was owned by that greaterbird at the end of the tunnel. I was coming thru not expecting anything higher than DC at 64 BST and ran right into him. I sent in a courrier carrie and he killed it very fast while i was trying to temp log. He then came at me with a 500+ critical and two 250+ attacks and i was dead ; ;

Beyond those birds (of course i went back ^^) were Tavnasian Rams and some Fomor parties all IT++.

Ok, at 14:20, a DRAGON appears at the very eastmost side of the lake. You cannot fight or target it; its as interactive as the birds in windurst. You see it over the lake starting at the north, and it dive bombs near you, flies around, then back over the lake. Man was i spooked when i first saw it.

This may be worth a visit to this area, Haven't been to the map yet, and I love to explore new areas. Is there a board or link for just the CoP quests? And how do you get here? I haven't been to any of the connecting maps either, So I guess I have a lot of exploring to do.

This is true. Also, if you're looking at the ruins of Tavnazia at dawn (06:00), two dragons take off and circle the city for an hour or two.

Quite gorgeous to watch.

At (I-8) near the lake there is a "???" that spawns 2 NMs, after beating them and clicking it again, you get some bracelet key item. Does anyone know who starts this quest? (i am assuming it is a quest)

Hello MystBattalion,

This is for the quest "A Bitter Past." Talk to Frescheaue H-8 Tavnazian Safehold on the 3rd Floor. Then talk to Rominey J-7 on the 3rd Floor. Then talk to Equette on the 2nd Floor at the Alter of the Dawn.

Its easy. Good story. Long cutscenes.

Talk with Frescheaue again for the Reward.

Reward is the Yinyang Lorgnette.

After recieving the reward, talk with Equette again for more of the story. Its sad as stated in the quest description, but you will be glad you did it.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting :D

Something I found very interesting...

IF you go to the edge in the North East corner (J-6) Where you can see "Blueblade Fell" you actually see the town above the arched rock that was defended in the first CG animated cinematic at the beginning of FFXI. To bring the story around like this really plays a big role in why I adventure. I loved this site.

Here's a Pic: From The KoolAid LS website: Blueblade Fell

Logging Points

I was thrilled to find logging points here, as soon as I found them, I ran back to the taznavian safehold to grab some hatchets that I had stored away. I have found points near the bridge of the taznavian safehold entrance along F-7 and F-8. Further in too in G-6. G-6 however had tough monsters roaming the area such as leshy, a walking tree. Luckily there was a level 75 paladin killing them. Anyway my findings were:

arrowwood log
ash log
Walnut log
Oak log
Acorn log
Faerie apple

As a level 45 White mage, most enemies checked from DC to IT. I wonder if this could be the next Ifrit's Cauldron for Logging, where you can find lance and laquerwood =). If anyone has any other findings please add to this.

Complete logging
================
I-8 / I-9 (lake) ~3 points
G-6 (leshyville) ~5 points
F-7 / F-8 (bridge) ~4 points
================
arrowwood log (common)
ash log (common)
maple log (common)
faerie apple (semi-rare)
walnut log (semi-rare)
acorn (rare)
oak log (rare)
elm log (very-rare)
For safe logging here i recomend at least 55+ (at the time i'm 62 and nothing agros me in these areas) Also please, be nice to fellow loggers, this isnt the outpost and working together will help each other out (i find that 2-3 cooperative people work best since there are 3 general areas).

getting to Tavnazian Safehold
# Oct 05 2004 at 1:46 PM Rating: Decent
10 posts
After exploring Lufaise Meadows a bit when I first finished all the Promyvion missions, I came back through the swirling vortez in Valkurm dunes to explore some more. The goal was to reach Tavnazian Safehold.

Exiting from the vortex, I chose a direction and headed west. After a while, passing by the coast, and a bridge (beautiful scenery), I was zoned and found myself in the safehold. The entrance that I came upon was at E-10 on the map. There is another entrance at E-8.

I didn't have a map when I came in through the vortex, so I don't know the <pos> for the vortex. I'll go back later to find out. ^_^

Hope this helps whoever wants to go to the Tavnazian Safehold.


Edit: The swirling vortex is located at K-8

again, there is no zone enterance to this area. so if you have been searching for a zone, you havent found one because it does not exist.
to enter here, you must first have cleared all 3 crags for CoP mission 1-3 and 1-4. then, after all 3 are cleared, you can be ported here via the "swirling vortex" in either qufim of valkrum dunes.

The Qufim vortex is in the tunnel that also leads to Behemoth's Dominion. Having not done any of the Crag mission's for CoP I just walked up and slapped the vortex a few times since it does nothing for me but swirl. That was a good way to kill about 2 minutes, then I left.

I explored this area a fair bit after completeing the mission. I was dumped into there as a 50 RNG (with level 30 gear) and explored later as a 61 THF.

There were a few EP at 61, but not much of it seemed agro, with the possible exception of some Dark Spriggan like creatures (dark, evil versions of Tarus, Humes, etc etc).

Still, be very careful in the NE area. The monsters there conned IT High Def to my 61 THF (making them possibly good exp?) and were giant bird types.

The rest of the area is full of medium tier (Footsoldiers, Bowshooters) orcs and gigas (EP to 50, twtbw to 60). There are also some Buggards there that apparently eat the sheep found in the area.

You need to beat Promyvion Dem, Holla and Mea to reach this place. You'll be automatically sent there after you complete the third one, and afterwards it can be accessed via the vortices in Valkurm and Qufim.

Some helpfull Info.

Well I dont like to say somthing when information is still hard to find about thigs, it whould appear you must complete Promanthia Holla, Mea, or Dem, or course I dont know if you have to complete just one of them or all of them to enter this area, I tried to do Promanthia Holla tonight (Level 30 cap, get your items and level 30 gear ready.), things were going well we decided to follow a japanese party of 2 groups but our party got to much agress in the third level, without much info about this we were very poor in our plans, my party died and disbanded but I had reraise and followed my way up watching the Japanese going up and following after them. Promanthia Holla has 4 levels, in order to go up you have to kill a Big White Ball at the end of each floor thats spawns Strays to protect itself. The ball it self has some really nasty area attack that can knock you back about 10 times more then a Goblin rush, lol. Best to have rangers here and if strays agress your party pull the monsters back to a clear loction to have your tank hold them off while rangers and black mage hit the ball. Each floor gets harder up, thats why people form 3 partys to help each other up, each level up gets harder, best to from a big full 3 partys before going in, on the fourth floor you will not have to kill a ball but find the entrance to the room before the BCNM, in this room you can buff up also you wont have the level cap in this room of 30 like before but once you start BCNM you will go back to 30 cap, also only one party can do this at a time so the 2 or 3 partys you got can split up here. I got to this room and seen japanese groups go to fight, cant see how the fight is of course, but it must be hard since one group came out all dead. Anyway after some time I did searches of the names of people who went in to fight the BCNM and did not come back out since they won and found that they were in Lufaise Meadows. This looks like the way to make it.
Before going in the groups tested the items they were to use, seems like Yudago drinks and Selbina Milk will be helpfull, also one party had 2 people using ninja as main or sub using there copy images before going in, all I can say is I hope I can form good people this week to get this done myself, lol.

I got to spend about 15 minutes in this zone on Saturday night, during the CoP launch party in Milpitas.

We were running level 60 characters on the Atomos test server. This is a grassy, hilly place not unlike the highlands. Lots of mobs here, including several new types of orcs and goblins (didn't get their names), big bull-like mobs called Bugarts, some gigas, and I can't remember what else. Everything was TWW for us.

Didn't find any zone exits, but I did find a rope bridge that crosses this amazingly gorgeous river gorge.
