Situated to the north of Bastok, this valley is surrounded by steep mountains. Separated into east and west areas by towering cliffs, this rocky region remains desolate due to various mineral run-offs which contaminate the river water. However, the spectacular Drachenfall, located to the north, is considered to be one of the wonders of Vana'diel.

That spot south of Draken fall.

Just a note, The point south of draken falls is a telepoint used to teleport to the top of the cliff by trading a flower. Only available after talking to the lycopodium thing in the past with the wings of the goddess expansion.

A little ways from Drachenfall, south of it (around F-8 i think) theres a blank target. Coming closer, theres a shiny sparkly spot on the ground, and when you check it, it says "There is something shiny on the ground" or something like that.

What does it do/is it for?

This is a ruby you must pick up for a npc in bastok markets. He asks for it for a reward. I think it is gil. Anyways you must unequip everything you have on and I mean everything. And then you can pick it up and take it back to the npc.

This has already been asked, but no one ever answered, me and my friend were doing the Crawlers' Nest map quest, and we came across a targetable blank spot at the waterfall right before the cave in which the stone monument was. Anyone have any idea what this is?

??? by the falls
# Jan 19 2004 at 10:13 AM Rating: Default
When we did the canteen quest and the North Gustaburg Tablet, we noticed a ??? on the other side of the river. Any idea what that is/ how to activate it? we didn't want to get a closer look because it meant too much backtracking for something that might not do anything.
RE: ??? by the falls
# Feb 02 2004 at 12:48 PM Rating: Default
The ??? near the river is is for a quest in Bastok. I think the person you need to speak to is in the pub in Port Bastok. He asks you to retrieve some kind of a tear. The catch is, you can only pick it up and carry it if you have no weapons equipped.
RE: ??? by the falls

there are only a few in some specific areas. Just like the black wolves; they only appear at night on hills, around the S.Gustaburg exit to N.Gustaburg, and before the Drachenfall bridge in NGustaburg.

I spotted (and had to fight) an enchanted bones or two that spawned on the top of the mountain in South Gustaberg, while doing the Galkan Sausage Quest. Similarly, I ran into a few (also at night) on the paths up the mountains (and on top of the mountain) in the "ten names on the tomb" quest.

# Nov 18 2003 at 3:26 PM Rating: Default
change the max level to 14. I was still gaining experience 15-25 at a shot, up until midway thru lvl 14.

Have to go on top of Zegham Hill or N. Gusta by the Outpost, those two spots are harder then the rest of N. Gusta

Careful of the Ornery Sheep on the Hill, they tend to group up when nearby.

The max level refers to the max level of the monsters, which is what we need to know. If an area is lvl 15-25, I know I can string together 6 lvl 10 and go there for VT's. If I'm solo, I know that I need to be lvl 15 to be even to the weakest mobs, and that starting from lvl 26 the harders thing I can find in this zone is a decent challenge.

The level should stay right where it's at, unless you find mobs that con even to a lvl 10 or higher.

Which is in the northeast corner of the zone. Enter North Gustaberg via the eastern South Gustaberg entrance or from Port Bastok. Cross the bridge over Zeikt Creek and continue northeast along the path.

The shrine is up Zegham hill, go up, then go up another road (once you go up the first path take a right), then up again (after taking a left afte rthe second hill)

You will FINALLY make it to the very top of the hill (its very large) and the memorial is there, the quest giver is in the bat inn in the mines and he gives level 8 monk/ninja/samurai pants

The entrance to Zegham Hill is on the West side of the hill. To get up the hill, the entrance to the second tier is counterclockwise from the main entrance, and the entrance to the third tier is clockwise from the second tier entrance.

You have to cross the bridge over Zeikt Creek first. The first ramp is right in the middle of I6. The second one is either in the upper right corner of I8 or the upper left of J8, meaning as others have stated, you have to basically go around to the other side of the hill. Rinse and repeat to make it to the third level with the memorial (Ramp around upper right I7).
