Spurred by the discovery of darksteel, the Zeruhn Mines were recently carved through the large rock formation on the eastern edge of Bastok Mines. Due to the high market value of darksteel ore, the Zeruhn Mines is quickly becoming one of Bastok's main sources of income.

A lone Galka stands watch over a heavy gate in the mine's main passageway. Beyond this gate lies Korroloka Tunnel, a popular training ground for up-and-coming adventurers.

Points of Interest

  • The Rise of the Zilart expansion is required to move past the gate at H-7 to Korroloka Tunnel.
  • Zoning in from the boat in Palborough Mines grants a cutscene for the quest Blade of Darkness.
  • New players can get experience points in this zone.
  • Players here can mine Darksteel Ore, which usually sells for nice profits on the auction house.
  • Several Bastok nation quests involve this zone.

I am level 17, but I *CANNOT* enter the tunnel though the mines: the hume guard simply will not let me through. I have no idea why this is so.

You need to have the expansion installed to get into the tunnel.

I have expansion installed and it still won't let me through. But I have seen other people get through and I still can't.

A common problem. The Rise of the Zilart expansion has to be installed and it has to be registered (I believe you can register it after logging in to POL and then starting FFXI.) NOTE: I believe one update may have unregistered Rise of the Zilart. My friend swore up and down that he registered it and couldn't get into the KokaKola tunnel, but when he tried to register it again, it worked and he could get in.

I had that same problem giving the keys for the Airship Pass to Kazham, you have to register it by going to the Content ID section in Playonline.

Bastok Markets, just across bridge that enters the bastok mine area, in a little hut
Korolaka Tunnel

The mines also connect to the Korolaka Tunnel. The entrance to the tunnel can be found on the far side of the locked gate. Once you've finished your very first mission, talk to the hume at the gate, and he'll offer to let you through.

The Zeruhn Mines are perhaps the safest and most reliable place for Miners to dig for ore. Of all the monsters that infest this Mine, only one is aggressive, the Giant Amoeba. Luckily, the blob is far too simple to wander far from the room it is found in, and thus is easy to avoid.

The very first Bastok mission has players delve into this area, and several quests either originate or have sections based in the zone.
great noob zone

Zehrun/S.Gustaberg are also some of the best zones in the game to level a below lvl8 job.

The mobs in Zehrun aren't difficult to anyone except maybe a BLM. Also a great source of earth/wind/water crystals, flint stones, bat wings and the occasional ores (copper, zinc, silver) from levels 1-4.

The mines aren't too crowded with people killing mobs on Siren, so I love it here for those levels.
