After the conclusion of the Great War nearly twenty years ago, an attack by the remaining Orcish troops on this peaceful Elvaan monastery left the tiny sanctuary in ruins and under the control of the beastmen. Years later, the Orcs transformed the area into their main stronghold, delighted by the layout of the surrounding area, as well as the protection that the monastic caverns provided. While there have been many attempts by the San d'Orian Royal Knights to reclaim this area, the ever-weakening forces of the kingdom remain powerless in this fight and often rely on hired adventurers to assist them in their campaigns.

Points of Interest


The Map of Davoi can be purchased for 3,000 gil from Elesca in Northern San d'Oria or from Violitte in Southern San d'Oria.

banishing gate for davoi
# Nov 23 2007 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent

To get through the gate you need a crimson orb. To get the orb you have to get the normal orb from a taru in a house in davoi the entrance of which is through the un-blocked entrance to Montastic Caverns (so baisically Davoi >> Montastic Caverns>> Davoi. Once you have the orb you have to travel around to the diffrent pools in davoi and dip the orb in. Once all of that is done, congratulations, you have your own crimson orb that will last forever.
Or to save time get a friend who has the orb and have them open it for you :P.

i know of one reason he is there, and it has to do with San D missions / quests. If I am not mistaken, The Davoi Report involves him. Or it could be Infiltrate Davoi, or both, I am not sure. But its one of the two.

The Davoi are a powerful clan of Orcs, and are found in force throughout this dungeon.

Unless I'm horribly mistaken, Davoi is just the area name, not a "clan of orcs". I could be wrong. =\

I have read the posts on this subject that all say the well is at e-10. Great that narrows it down to entire square on the map, which the locations are different areas. Plse someone tell me if it is in the horse shoe shaped area closer to the east of E-10, or is it in the pointed enclosed area more west of E-10. I am soloing this quest so an exact location would be helpful as i am sneaking arounf with invis and deoderize.

The well is located at the dead end in the SW most corner. Hopped in the river at I-8 and followed it all the way to D-8. Pugil aggrod at lvl 30, lizards did not. The mush at the well didnt bother me with silent oil and I only recall 2 spots where you would be visible to the Orcs. Once when you jump in the river and the large area after you get out.

maddox isn't sympathizing with immigrants with that anology. a person trapped in a well is saved by being removed from it. if this is the case, then to save an illegal alien from this so-called well, he must be deported.

and i've no freakin' clue where that banishing wall is, i haven't been able to find a marked map anywhere. wtf id the point in posting maps without markers????

The hipocracy of conservatives never ceases to amaze me. If you do the math; the well= low wages, the area surronding the well= America. So yes, get them out of the well. The analogy doesnt say anything about making sure they are never near a well again.

And just remember most of us are not from here, we stole this land from Native Americans. If we had left when they wanted us gone, none of us would be here. So what makes us so much better than everyone. Why is it that since you were born on one side of an imaginary line, you are entitled to a better life, and people born on the other side shouldnt even be given a chance.

Lemme guess...because the dont speak english?

I had no problems finding the wall, thanks to the very informitive people on this website.

If you would read
# Dec 02 2003 at 5:10 AM Rating: Default
Someone already posted this it is located at (G-12) of the Jugnar Forest which is east of La Thine Plateau. G-12 is just the unmarked exit to the right of La Thine Exit. (left the marked river). By the way Davoi does not require lvl 50 party to whom ever said that. Most are easy prey at lvl 30. Theres a Orc camp at K-9 which has nice prey for lvl 29-30 characters.
RE: If you would read
# Feb 29 2004 at 8:41 PM Rating: Good
Both of these people are correct. Just like every other area in Vana'diel, there are easier mobs that con Easy Prey near the entrance (aka Fighters/Cursemakers/Serjeants levels 22-28). However you need to be careful since they most definitely outnumber you and linkage is high. As you delve deeper in Davoi, you'll come across Impalers/Beastriders/Nightraiders/Brawlers which are levels 32-39... and even deeper you'll come across Bowshooters/Footsoldiers/Gladiators/Troopers, which are levels 42-49. So depends on what your destination is in Davoi, you might not need a level 50+ party.. it all depends on circumstance. And don't forget: Pugils, Bees/Wasps, Slimes and Lizards all aggro, too!
