The Yagudo tribes have made their homes in the dry, rocky cliffs to the west of Windurst. Adventurers who wander here must travel with care, as the Yagudo are aggressive and tend to attack in groups.

The Federation of Windurst has a treaty of sorts with the Yagudo of Giddeus. The tarutaru bring food offerings to the Yagudo in exchange for peace and harmony. However, this treaty is shaky at best, and the relationship between Giddeus and Windurst is contentious at best.

Points of Interest

  • Hoo Mjuu the Torrent, which drops Monster Signa, spawns around H-10.
  • A Giddeus Chest Key is needed for obtaining a Kazham Airship Pass without paying gil.
  • Chest keys drop from Yagudo on the southern end of the map.
  • Beware of large, round rooms that might have hidden holes in the middle of them.
  • The AF weapon for Dark Knight is obtained after defeating a notorious monster at E-12.


The Map of Windurst Region, which contains the map of Giddeus, can be purchased from several NPCs for roughly 200 gil.

Fisherman will find ponds at G-10 and E-12, and a spring at K-12.

Where is the Burning Circle located in this place?
# Feb 14 2004 at 10:33 PM Rating: Decent
To get to the BC, first you choose the west route from Giddeus entrance.

Keep going in along this west route, pass the NPC for "Food&Drink" mission and head inside the tunnel. Exit this tunnel at the other end (south) and when you reach another open area, turn LEFT. (NOTE: You don't go to the lower level, and make sure you are on ground floor, which is same map as the Giddeus zone-in.)

After you turned left as described above, stick to the wall on your left and keep going, then you will reach a dome-shaped entrance. Pass this entrance and keep going then you will change zone. After zoned, the BC will be in front of you.

Good luck!
Another Giddeus NM
# Feb 13 2004 at 3:02 AM Rating: Default
This might not be very much help, but I have seen and defeated another NM Yagudo in Giddeus that hasn't been mentioned in any of the previous posts that I saw. He was in the area before the "box" room where all the Priests, Theologists, and Votaries spawn, but he was on the bottom half of the area, not up on the cliff that you have to be on to get to the "box" room. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name, but I am assuming his job was RNG, because he dropped a bow that was specific to that job. I could be wrong about that, however (his job, not his drop). He wasn't very difficult, even though he checked "impossible to guage" when I was about level 24 or so. I only had one other person with me (I a MNK and she a RDM), and we took him down without too much trouble. The bow he dropped sold for 14,000 gil at the AH, so everytime I'm back in Giddeus, I'm looking for him!

Yeah thats the Power Bow mob. Lots of people camp him. Not sure his name, but was w/ a cheap ranger who didnt want to buy it himself, camp it.

amazing bird the marvel
# Feb 07 2004 at 11:54 AM Rating: Decent
For some reason, the pseudo-nm in the back can vary quite a bit in challenge due to the fact that lots of stuff spawns around him. There was one time he was a piece of cake. Another time, third tier yagudo started spawning around him and he used blink a few times during the fight. Btwm he drops some pretty nice stuff.

I have no idea how a level 50 drk could get owned. Unless it were due to linking and the fact this guy uses blink sometimes lik it was goin outta style.
Evilman uses Souleater
Evilman uses Last Resort

even more funny, yes it can. :)

It may not say "blah abosrbs dmage and blah bvlah" instead it may just says "missed" Try it for real before saying something next time ;)

oh ya and I fought the bird at the very back of giddeus (that one square area where you fifght votary and priests etc.) He is NOT a ninja, he is a bard. and a lvl 33nin and 27blm I wasa with we kicked its ***. so dont know what everyone's problem is but he was VERY easy. He dropped a bird whistle or something like that. And the mob that drops the monster sigma can be soloed easily at lvl 45+. (watched several battles myself) One was even a friend of mine, lvl 49blm massacred this guy so dont know what the problem there is. and the two NM in the caves can be easily killed at lvl 23+ (can 2hit kill at lvl 30). When I get a chance maybe ill send in a map.

Erm.. the bird of whom you're speaking that drops 'the staff' ... Hoo Mjuu the Torrent ... can be solo'ed at like ... level 28. You don't need to be 45+ to beat him. ;; He's only a WHM, after all, and while his Benediction helps him, it's more of an annoyance than a problem.

As for Eyy Mon et al, those're level 10.. 12.. NMs, which aren't a problem around level 15-16. ^^;

NM Yagudo
# Feb 04 2004 at 10:40 PM Rating: Default
The one NM Yagudo that's back with the Priests, Votarys, and Theogists is a tough *******. I'm a lvl 25RDM/12BLM, and he dropped me in 1 hit (I only had about 200 HP, started healing, and he hit me from behind for something like 260 DMG). Destroyed a lvl 50 DRK/25 WAR too.
# Feb 04 2004 at 3:54 AM Rating: Excellent
1) Purhcase map of Giddeus from Windhurst.. it's in Windy Woods near the big tree, two mithra in some sort of hut.
2) To go Giddeus. Take the west path, then go to location H7... it's sort of an alcove on the west side.
3) Fall down the hidden hole at H7. You should fall into a lower level that sort of looks like the head of a snake.
4) Go south from here... you go back up... eventually you need to go to the big box to the south. Don't fall off the ridges.

Where can I get this Giddeus Key? I've been lookin' all over.
RE: Giddeus Key
# Feb 02 2004 at 10:27 AM Rating: Default
You can get the key in the far bottom part of the map, the thing shaped like a box... You'll fight 3 different yagudos, a priest, theologist and something else, keep fighting them and they'll drop it.

The 3 types of Yagudo that can drop the Giddeus Chest Key are:

- Votary
- Priest
- Theologist

The 'box' room to the South is a spawn point for these types of Yag.

Beware of the Yagudo Theologists. I don't know where exactly they spawn but I know that my party members and myself were wiped by one, and we did NO damage at about lvl 12-11. I really don't know what kills those guys and we weren't that far from the entrance either.

Actually, the Theologists spawn rather deep in Giddeus. Either you were much further in than you thought, of it chased someone to the entrance, and was just taking it's time getting back.
Grassy Holes
# Jan 19 2004 at 1:29 AM Rating: Decent
I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but the holes seem to be easily avoidable. The two I've encountered were in the grass in the caves. By avoiding standing in any grass when in the caves, I've never had a problem with the holes.

Also why isn't there a map on this page as there are for some of the other dungeons? We know where it is and some of us have it. I'll gladly upload it if anyone knows how to extract a copy of it from the game.

RE: Pos?
# Jan 25 2004 at 5:46 AM Rating: Decent
was just there, took a while to find it but here's what I've learned. When you look at the map, go left (west) instead of right (east) and you'll come to the cave where you're supposed to be, then follow the left wall and avoid the middle until you get to an area with a lot of grass, then fall in. Follow that around a bit until you reach the bottom of the map and there you are, most of those guys checked decent to a 24. Me and a friend got 2 keys in 5 min chaining them...and an hour trying to find the area.
RE: Pos?
# Jan 08 2004 at 10:05 AM Rating: Default
its either H-7 or K-7 is the drop down point. basically when your in the caves you will come to a dead end sort of area, walk to the middle and fall down. and then just follow the map to the southern most part and your there.
# Dec 11 2003 at 6:08 AM Rating: Default
also this place if you don't watch where you're running can drop you in the middle of a lower level, via hole in ground, with a piper and a persecutor or more! Be careful here and watch the ground when you walk...

Oops, guess i didn't read all the posts. Just noticed the one telling us to grab the map in the port.
# Dec 09 2003 at 8:14 AM Rating: Default
So i haven't seen any posts here reguarding where one can obtain the map of this zone. I really hope i don't have to talk to every NPC in Windurst to find it. I've tried in game but people in FF unlike EQ or other mmorpg's are not so quick to respond with information. So could someone please post where to find the magical map NPC in Windurst?

You can find the mobs that drop the Giddeus key at I-14. It's a small area and when I got there it was overcamped. Be prepared to spend time.
RE: giddeous key
# Jun 18 2004 at 5:50 PM Rating: Decent
yeah you said it. me and 3 other guys, 2 of them and myself needed the giddeus key, so we went there last night at around 1:00am, couldnt get any, just due to unlucky drops, and decided to call it a night and come back tomorrow (which was today) at noon. we get there and there was literally 20 people looking for keys. over the 2 hours we spent fighting the few yagudos we could get our hands on, we couldnt find a single key. only key found the whole time was by a high leveled japanese player who didnt even need it. bleh.

RE: Eyy Mond

I've seen him spawn at G-7 on the lower level, in the small room with three tunnels out of it. It's just down the hall from the NPC who asks you for Eyy Mond's weapon

Another named
# Nov 19 2003 at 4:34 PM Rating: Default
I got light solea's off another named, something like Quu Baxuu the Silent. Could be wrong. Was pretty easy and he dropped the Light Solea's.

He was wandering around near the Yagudo Votary spawn.
