North of Tahrongi Canyon are the Meriphataud Mountains, a vast array of rocky hills and crevasses split by a gigantic bone-like structure known as Drogaroga's Spine. The Meriphataud Mountains is a crossroads for people heading to Windurst, Jeuno or The Sanctuary of Zi'Tah. On the east side of the zone is the massive Castle Oztroja, the main fortress for the yagudo race. Many unsuspecting adventurers have fallen prey to the yagudos and goblins that patrol the zone.
Many citizens of Vana'diel believe that Drogaroga's Spine -- which stretches nearly the length of the zone -- was the spine of the mythical dragon Drogaroga. If you investigate this further, you just might discover that this spinal structure was built for something else entirely different.
The Map of the Windurst area, which includes the Meriphataud Mountains, can be obtained from several merchants for about 200 gil.
