The Boyahda Tree, the largest tree in The Sanctuary of Zi'Tah, is said to have lasted tens of thousands of years. Inside the cave made by its decaying roots reside all manner of creatures, some content to mind their own business and some fiercely aggressive. Lighting in this enormous space is caused by the shining moss growing on the cave walls. Goobbues tend to the plant life and the inhabitants of this unique environment, causing deadly encounters for unwary adventurers.

i found a "???" beside the tree on the upper level. does any1 know what it is for? when i checked it it said "Can not see the moon right now" or something like that, it was a new moon at 2% so i'm guessing it has to be check on a full moon... but still does any1 know what its for?

That "???" pops a NM at night only that drops the final piece of the puzzle for the lengthy Sleepga II quests.

I noticed many people were lost as to the location of the Coffers and where they could get an online map of some sort.

I found that this following site provides much help with things like that...


good luck and good fun to everyone

also to the question, people come to this place at ~53 for exp parties

I was just leveling here at 54, it was a solid party, but unfortunately once we finally started getting some experience, a group that was hunting the spiders tried to MPK us! Luckily I was the only one who died but I de-leveled and only got the level back because of R3... We got the coffer key on our first battle so I know for sure it drops on bark spiders. I hope this might help someone, and watch out for the occasional MPK >< Good luck!

Does it mean "Multi-Player-KOed"?

I am curently a lvl 49 Nin/war... And am looking at getting my AF out of the way when I hit 50... I know, I can't use most of it until later in the 50s...

I was wondering a) What lvl ppl go here to EXP, and b) can a lvl 40 thf successfully pick the lock to the coffer (want to use my thf to get coffer maps, but most of the areas are lvl 60+ mobs).
Map Quest??

This was one of the first maps that I got that required a coffer. I was asked to come to the entrance and sneak the Paladin. Luckily for me on the way to the entrance I found the coffer. ^_^

Sadly the map is very disappointing. The map shown above actually shows much more than the regular map shows.

Took me forever to find a coffer for my map tonight. When i finally found it, it was at H-6 in the tunnel where three crawlers spawn. Interesting to note, this spawn point isn't even on Killing Ifrit's or Speakeasy's coffer maps.

The Cloister of Lightning is the Wierd Japanese Symbols on Boyahda tree 2. the Pos is j-12... you go though neat looking water fall at I-11

Other things to Note...

You enter from Boyahda tree1 - 1 or 2

the only way to get to the Second MAP(2) is through pasage marked A.

The 3rd map is Reach by dropping down the falls at map 2 point C. For there you can head north to what I assume is the Dragons aery... I dont know ... I died some Elder Goobue hit me for 483...ouchie.

I can confirm one coffer spawn location at D-4 on the first map. It's against the wall of course.

My static party got bored one day after exping, checked in, and killed him quite easily. We were all 65-66 at that time. Party was a PLD/WAR, RNG/NIN, DRK/WAR, THF/NIN, WHM/BLM, and RDM/BLM. Save for the RDM between cures and a Drain or two from me (the DRK), nobody nuked. If a party at 65-66 can kill him by meleeing primarily, and he had enough def that the RNG was shooting him for 30, he surely doesn't need an alliance of 70s.

You get the map from a coffer. Coffers are locked chests. The chests that contain the map are in this zone. Keys drop from random (pretty much) mobs within the zone.

This game came out awhile ago in Japan. Not everything comes to America 1st you know. In fact, I think every FF game that was made started in Japan 1st. And not all of them have been released to the US.

So what exactly does a level 42 type of makeup do? Make your cheeks REALLY REALLY pink?
Rouge is a powder women put on their cheeks. Rogues are dastardly, devilish types with sly grins and quick knives.

Yes it is, but you get the quest from the NPCs in Mhuara. If you're looking for the lvl65 Ramuh fight, talk to the taru next to the mithra on the upper lvl of mhuara (sorry, i do not remember the name). Talk to the mithra for the trial size version of quest (lvl 20 one on one with smn as your job)
