The history of Vana'diel is riddled with war and bloodshed, yet few battlefields are as significant as the frozen expanse of Xarcabard. Fortifications still stand from the epic faceoff between the Allied Forces of Altana and the Beastmen Confederate. It was the grandeur of this battle that allowed an elite group of adventurers to infiltrate Castle Zvahl and defeat the Shadowlord.

Mighty dragons roam the expanse that comprises most of Xarcabard. Giants, demons and undead also roam the icy land.

Points of Interest


The Map of the Northlands Area, which includes Xarcabard, is a reward from the quest Her Majesty's Garden.

"instantly my sneak/invis vanished and a Boreal Hound blasted me with Blizzara II"

That is one of the 3 monsters you have to get past to finish G3. They have true sight which is why they could see you even though you were invisible.

And Deodorize only works if your hp level is low and monsters can smell your open wounds.

If you go start heading west on the map you will come accross the zone of the baileys castle, but beware you will have to cross many demons to get there.

Where is the Teleport Crystal on this map? I ran around looking for it to no avail. I was sneak/invis and in a tunnel there must have been some barrier that removes these spells because I instantly my sneak/invis vanished and a Boreal Hound blasted me with Blizzara II.

The Tiger is a NM you have to fight for Genkei 2, and it killed you because it has Sneak/Invis detect.
