Set back by the southwestern corner of South Gustaberg, the Dangruf Wadi is a small canyon near the volcano known as Mount Dangruf. The molten magma beneath Dangruf Wadi has caused numerous geysers to break through the surface. Adventurers who search carefully in this zone can find a tunnel to the base of Drachenfell's.

Points of Interest

  • The ???s at G-7, F-4 and E-12 are used for the quest As Thick as Thieves - THF AF2.
  • Geysers located at H-9, I-8 and J-3 can help adventurers reach different areas of the zone.
  • The notorious monster Chocoboleech can spawn at J-6, F-8 or E-10.
  • A Strange Apparatus is located at E-11.


The Map of Dangruf Wadi is obtained by completing the quest The Bare Bones.

so where do i get the map? someone said that question was answered, and i don't see it anywhere...
RE: map???

You can get this map by trading a bone chip to an old man in Bastok Markets. The quest is called the Bare Bones, and the NPC's name is Degenhard at (H-10). Hope this helps.

Invis lost on geysers?

Invis dies when you zone, but, I thought it would stay in place while riding the geysers. However, I think perhaps it doesn't. Can anyone confirm this?

I nearly died last night (got an Instant Warp scroll off but it was close) when I hopped up the 2nd geyser (J-3, I think) and was immediately beset by gobs at the top. My invis was nowhere close to wearing off at the time - since I am only level 25, I wear it constantly in Dangruf Wadi still.
Thank you

Thanks for the help :D

>< this took forever b/c whenever i thought he couldnt see me, he could. So anyone who attempts this should be very careful where u hide!

Also, his movement pattern is K-10 {zone} to J-11, then I-11, H-11, ending at G-12.
I recommend scouting the area first, to find nice cubby holes to hide in.

Stand Alone quest

Quest concering Ken and Marrin from Bastok Markets.
Apparently you somehow help Ken thru the Wadi but you cannot let him see you helping him or the quest fails. This includes healing him. My only theory for this is to have someone run thru ahead of me and kill everything so the little brat doesn't die.
If anyone has completed this one, I'd love some help. And I believe "Stand Alone" is the name.

The quest name is 'All by Myself". You can heal him, but only if he does not see you at any time. The reward is only 1500 gil.

Suicide Dungeon
# Aug 22 2004 at 2:30 PM Rating: Decent
Is it just me, or is this place literally suicide to wander through? I died so many times trying to do drachenfall, and everyone who tried to help me died also. It wasn't until my rdm was lvl 30 with sneak and invisible abilities that i was able to complete that quest solo. Wadi is not to be underestimated by no means.
Question & hopeful answer ^^

I'm not sure, went there to take a look today and found out nothing, never seen anything like it before. When you click on the 'Strange Aparatus" it says:

It is some sort of device.
You can feel hot steam leaking from the cracks in the machine...
The voice of a young woman rings in your head.
"Wel...to the...morph Matter Emulato...

"If you...a registe...doctor, emula...ettings will...djuste...accordin..."
"...emulator...ill now conduc...user auth...zation. Please inp...your 8-digit passw..."

It then pulls up a password box for you to enter the code in. If it is left blank and entered in...

Reg...tration comple... Your access lev...is assistant
The voice in your head has gone silent.

Its a strange apparatus, and if you trade it a colored chip and a infinity core you get a reward.
RE: Computer
# Nov 08 2004 at 8:19 AM Rating: Decent
I've been to the computer, and put in a password and was told that I was an assistant. Where do you find the infinity core, now that we know where to get the chip?

The chip is sold by the gob that is near the wood stacks in San d'Oria North.
Update on cave
# May 02 2004 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
I ran into a lvl 21blk mage, so we checked it out. like the other post said there is a computer that has to be part of some quest, there is also a hole infront of the door. if you fall down it there is a tunnel with a couple goblin butchers, and ambushers. one of them drops animal glue if thats important. both ends of the tunnel lead to the two cave openings mentioned here earlier that you cannot get to from Wadi. there is also a "???" in the tunnel that says nothing special. must also be a part of a quest. well hope this helps someone. saddly myself and the Blk mage did not make it home without seing the otherside first.

... Wierd ass cave

A friend and I found a cave at (F-11) on the eastern inlet, not the northern one. There's a fake wall at the back of this inlet. Anyway, you walk thru it and there's a cave that leads to a door. Door goes into a large room with a computer of some sort.

Target the computer, it asks for an infinity core and it's coresponding element. I'm guessing the "element" is a crystal. It also requires a password.

My question is "WTF is this place?!". My LS found this place before the patch, but the computer never talked to us. Now the computer talks. We just mess around here, calling it "Providence HQ", like it's our base or something, but... I really wanna know what it does =P

Anyone have any ideas?

Draken Base
# Feb 10 2004 at 8:55 AM Rating: Default
to get to the zone to Drakenfall base, all i did was keep heading North east if there was a path north i'd take it, if there wasn't, take the east path. I just did that and I got to the zone in no time, I did it solo at level 30 war and 15 thief. i had to fight a couple of muggers and lechers though but it wasnt a problem the where all Easy prey. Oh btw there is two gysers to go up so when you find the first gyser thats the right way , when you find the scond gyser you are almost there.

The geyser leading to the zone for Drachenfall is at J-3 in Dangruf Wadi. I agree that you can solo your way there at lvl 30 (I was lvl 32 rdm/whm when I went). Had to go there for the Bastok quest where you had to retrieve Drachenfall water.
# Feb 02 2004 at 4:31 PM Rating: Default
goto quest item and check it...it should turn red... don't think u need to go to a specific place. regarding key...various monster seem to drop it in that area...however i am certain gobolin abusher drop it. the chest can be open with thieves tools or other devices but it's not certain. From what i found the chest contains...gills, tropical shield, or a weapon. all good stuff.

Head to the open area in J-3/J-4. In the NE corner of that is a geyser that will take you to another upper level. Keep following that path and you'll get to the zone.

treasure chest
# Jan 25 2004 at 1:19 AM Rating: Default
found a chest in the (F-5) and (E-6) area. not sure if theres a key or if you need to pick it or whats in side.
RE: treasure chest
# May 19 2004 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
A friend of mine on Cerebrus Server saw a chest that appeared one night at 21:00, along the northern wall of grid coordinates G-6/H-6 and have yet to see it reappear there. We were grouped together when he used his Dangruf Wadi key(that dropped from one of the goblins) on the chest and we both recieved 382gil a piece. It should be noted that when a chest appears the goblins become very aggressive and that if you get aggro'd by one goblin, every goblin in that particular room will wander over and attack you, even if they check out as a target not worthwhile fighting.
