Numerous paths and tunnels snake through Yhoator Jungle, a tropical forest which covers most of the Elshimo Uplands. Towering above the northern horizon of Yhoator Jungle is Mt. Yuhtunga, where daring adventurers can find entrances to Ifrit's Cauldron. To the south lays the remnants of the Temple of Uggalepih, and on the eastern edge of the jungle are caves leading to the deadly Den of Rancor.

Unlike Yuhtunga Jungle, tonberries roam freely throughout Yhoator Jungle. The tonberry race is based in the Temple of Uggalepih, with others occupying the Den of Rancor. Adventurers must be careful not to get on the bad side of these small, awkward creatures.

Points of Interest

  • Zone into Ifrit's Cauldron at G-6 and I-5.
  • Zone into Den of Rancor through the cave at J-7.
  • The Teleport-Yhoat crystal is in the clearing at F-9.
  • The outpost for this zone is at I-8.
  • The ??? at I-7 is used in the quest True Will - NIN AF3.


The Map of the Elshimo regions, which includes Yhoator Jungle, can be purchased for 3,000 gil from Promurouve in Lower Jeuno or Rusese in Upper Jeuno.

You can do the round trip for only $200 gil. Set your home point in Kazham. Fly to jueno, get what you need. Change your job to a low lvl job. Like a lvl 1 if you have any. Then just die outside at jueno and return to Kazham free of chagre. You can change your job back at the mog hut. A little trick of the trade...

Unfortunately, the closest signet is in Jeuno. However, it's only a 200gil each way, 5 minute ride...

The airship ride is even cheaper if you do the little 'hide and go seek' quest every time you take the return flight to Jeuno. 500 gil more than makes up the round-trip fare, and you get the pocket change and (presumably) a teensy amount of fame every time.

If you guys are in search for the Yohator Gate Crystal here in Yohator Jungle... look into F-9 and you'll find the Gate crystal there, given that you'll be willing to survive your way out of the area with the tonberries, goblins, and whatnots right near the crystal. I was able to navigate my way out thanks to Sneak and Invisible.

if you dismount right on top of the crystal, there should be no mobs close enough to aggro most of the time.

For the Yhoator GC, navigate through the jungle to the center of the clearing at F-9.

But have the HP of a monk.

...in fact, they basically are monks, aren't they? Low defense, small but frequent attacks, high HP. Except monks don't have an AOE sleep attack...

They also have counter-attack if you watch your chat window closely :)
