Windurst Waters is the largest segment of the Federation of Windurst. Windurst Waters includes the Aurastery, the Optistery, the cooking guild, the Rhinostery and other famed establishments of the federation.

Like Windurst Walls, this zone is full of water because of flooding that occurred during the Crystal War. Windurst Waters was the hub of civilian life during the Crystal War, as other parts of the federation suffered heavy damage through battles with yagudo hordes. Now, the tents of the Mithran Mercenaries are gone from Huntsman's Court, and adventurers can fish from the wood-plank walkways without worry of an enemy invasion.

Points of Interest

  • Players can exit the zone from Odin's Gate at F-1.
  • The Fenrir quest is accessed from Kerutoto on top of the Rhinostery.
  • You can check your Windurst fame by talking to Zabirego-Hajigo at F-10.
  • Players can fish from the walkways throughout the zone.
  • The zone is so large that it's actually split over two maps. Both maps are combined on the map below.


The Map of Windurst Region, which includes Windurst Waters, can be obtained from several merchants for about 200 gil.

There's a quest dealing with going there and clicking on every door to answer a questions from a doll (not a cardian). The questions are actually more about details about windy and other quests. Beyond that, there isn't any use for it that I've found.

Serioulsy, that map needs to come down. None of those coordinates are right on that map. It's two maps. The Rhinostery isn't at (H-12), it's at (J-8)!

Come on guys, lets update please!

True true. I'd just like to know who made this ^^;
At least change the coordinates of NPCs and stuff if you use such a map.
Never found the mithra vendor at H-9...maybe she's hiding there somewhere in the water...iiiii guess i'll grab my rod and give it a try ^^

Where do u ckeck fame in Windurst?
RE: Fame

You can check fame with Zabirego-Hajigo, who is in Timbre-Timbers Tavern in Windurst Waters. On the map provided here it's F-7, but in the new map in-game it's F-10.
NPC Teleporter to Windurst Woods

The Teleporter in Windurst Waters is Tonana right next to the Optistery, just to the east (G-8) down a small set of stairs. She ports you to the Chocobo Stables.

The name of the Windurt Woods Teleporter is
Pattsu-Yabittsu, right near the Chocobo stables, who ports you back to Tonana.

These NPCs port for free.
Windurst Waters map no longer valid

This map no longer seems to be valid. Windurst Waters now divided into a south section and a north section, so coordinates by this map are probably going to be wrong with respect to what your in-game map shows.
Stores depend on conquest
# Dec 22 2003 at 1:34 PM Rating: Default
Some of the above store inventory is dependent on Windurst's conquest ranking (most of the FMR spells, water and some other stuff at Ensasa's).

Distilled water can also be found at the apothecary in Windurst Woods, regardless of conquest ranking.

There's a Tarutaru mage down the stairs at G-5 who will warp you to Windurst Woods, near the chocobo stables, for free. Another mage near the chocobo stables will warp you back to Windurst Waters.
