The warped remains of the once great Celestial Capital of the Zilart, Al'Taieu is secluded to all but the most skilled of adventurers seeking fame, fortune, and challenge. Even to this day, after 10,000 years since it became isolated from the rest of Vana'diel, bizarre creatures, such as the sky-borne Yovra and marine Phuabo, still dwell in this surreal area and serve as guardians to the Grand Palace.

This area is said to yield some of the most powerful of monsters, even the mighty Aern, Absolute Virtue.

Points of Interest


The Map of Al'Taieu can be obtained by completing a mini-quest requiring you to visit each Quasilumin in Al'Taieu.

Hmmm... Celestial definitely sounds like skyward...except maybe further up... celestial means something in space the way terrestrial means something from earth.Hmmm indeed....

Celestial can also refer to that which is divine. In DnD angels and othe rbeings of the other plane are called "Celestials"

From what people have said, maybe Bahamut came from here? Regardless, this and the Grand Palace of whatchamacallit and Garden of insertoddlynamedpersonhere are not available to us yet.

Although, they have REALLY REALLY nice sounding music tracks, equal to and better than Sky.

alteiuh is the celestial capital where by the kuluu and zilart(ancient ppl) once resided in.
and yes it is the place where by u get all these short scenes of it with the enigmatic youth.
it is not known where to be accessed as it is unreleased so far but according to the story its under the shumeyo sea.

Well just something I want to add is during a cut scene with Prishe(a bit after killing the minotaur and a smidge before Riverne Site #Acan't remember rest of the name) they talk about a painting and then show it and you can see Bahamut flying above Al'taieu. So it must have something to do with the Ku'luh or what not and maybe a Bahamut/Phoenix battle is in store?

**more spoilers** :D

My team on the phoenix server is 1 BC away from finishing all the CoP missions up through today's update - with the update new missions are supposed to be added as well as the new areas.

There was a great terrestial avatar war that sent the celestial captial under the Shumeyo Sea. According to the storyline there is a way they have found that leads to this area - through the lifeforce of the fifth mothercrystal. If that is true, then this would be an underwater area. The storyline so far has CONFIRMED that this city not only exists, but some of the ku'hlu actually survived and this city lives on - however, according to the priest lady (the immortal one) it is no longer the place it used to be - it is a dark tainted place now (not like emptiness or dynamis but I am assuming like Sky with enemies, etc.) - After the next BC we will be on chapter six - I believe according to what I've read on various japanese websites, this area opens up upon completion of Chapter 7 - the update today is supposed to open up all new area so let's hope that this is one of them :)

Hope that helps :D:D:D

I research something about Al'Taieu its actually Paradice that the Zilart trying to unlock. Sorry but I can't find the pinpoint locations where it is. Guess you have to find it by yourself.

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

This looks ODDLY like the wweird place you see when Enigmatic Youth locks up your ps2......I mean when you first meet him ;)
