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.

I-5, J-5, etc contains both the Wadi Hare and the Dangruf Stone. Be on the lookout for goblins.

secret passage

im in search of the rock eaters (not the stone eaters) and i cant seem to find them anywhere. iv been told that they are to the north of the entire zone where the goblin leechers and gamblers are, and ive also been told they are in a tunnel or something but i visited all those areas and i havnt found a single rock eater anywhere, anyone found any recently?
RE: secret passage
# Feb 02 2004 at 7:59 PM Rating: Default
Um.... I know there are Rock Eaters in The Konstant Highlands, If you keep going right through the little ,aze thing there will be a fire that Quadav spawn around, and near there some rock eaters spawn.
Drachenfall / Stone Monument

The entrance to Drachenfall base is in J-3 to the most northeastern part of J-3... take the geyser up... most likely two gamblers up there. I've stumbled across a chest in that area too, but forgot my Thieve Tool's >.< . A few twists and turns and viola Drachenfall area. Leechers, Gamblers, and Pugils. They all aggro. If you stick to the side you came from there is a ??? at the end, no idea what it is for. If you cross the bridge and keep going in the waterfalls general direction you'll stumble across the Water Point you need for Black Mud's quest. Also there is a cave which contains Stone Monument. Viola if you have your Selbina Clay you just earned 5,000 gil. :D GJ

Wadi hares are in the large area h-6 to j-5, also in the large area that contains sector e-10.

The dangruf chest can spawn in a lot of places... Annoying. I have found it twice myself, in sectors j-6 and f-5.

Also, steam lizards drop the dangruf chest key, as well as butchers/tinkerers.
crazy looking machine
# Dec 24 2003 at 12:02 AM Rating: Default
Anyone have any idea what the strange machine here is for? If you don't know what i'm talking about go to F-11 (not the path up the geyser) and you can walk through the wall. I haven't found any information on it. Maybe I didn't look hard enough?
I've also found a couple of ???s that weren't the dangruf stone but just get a "nothing there" type message.

Path to N. Gustaberg

It's at the most NE part of the map (J-3). There's a path that leads off to the NE (which incidentally, isn't included on the in-game map above, leading to the confusion). This section of Dangruf Wadi is populated by Goblin Muggers/Leechers/Gamblers so you'll need to be >lev25 solo or with a lev20+ group.

Note also that when you zone in to N. Gustaberg, you appear at the western edge of the river, and need follow the river east across a third of the map until you reach the falls / monument. This section of N. Gustaberg is also populated by Goblin Muggers/Leechers/Gamblers as well as aggressive Land Pugils.

I also forgot to mention, this is a Dungeon zone not an Outdoor zone (as it says above), so you can't ride a Chocobo through it to avoid the mobs, as I tried to do :/

its logical proximity to the west side of North Gustaberg makes it a likely location for some path to the Drachenfell's base

could someone please give the location of this path. it is needed for selbina mayor's quest. thanks.

treasure chests
# Dec 08 2003 at 1:41 PM Rating: Default
has anyone found any of those darn chests lately? I have been searching through ALL the area more thna once and still no sight of a chest...really bugs me...
# Dec 04 2003 at 8:07 AM Rating: Decent
If you need gil, in which everybody does, those hares are money makers for me. Since everybody wants their chocobo lic. I heard that next patch they droppin it from 15 to 17ish. That just what I heard. That means more gil for me.
Location of the wadi hares! OMG!
# Dec 01 2003 at 6:05 AM Rating: Default
Try poking around the area of H-J 6 and 6.

Yea, that big huge "empty" space. The wadi hares reside there.

Watch for gob Butchers, Weavers and Tinkerers. I had little trouble getting the grasses. (It was me and another guy. I was a WHM he was a BLM. lvs 19 and 20 respectively.)

in order to get the map to dangruf wadi..you must do a mission in Bastok. If you go to I10 in bastok markets theres an old man who looks like hes doing yoga or something..if you bring him a bone chip he will give you the dangruf map
# Nov 30 2003 at 11:02 PM Rating: Default
The keys unlock the treasure chests which are placed at random...the keys drop off of butchers/tinkerers. If you go to the area located at F-11 there is a hidden entrance which looks like a rock wall but you can walk throgh it...it leads to some sort of strange machine which i have no idea what it does. i tried to trade items with it and it said that the machine wasnt working. if anyone knows what this machine does please fill me in.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 30 2003 at 2:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) the problem with the map you see in-game is that it refers to that area as The Fumaroles..that is actually the area that is the Danguf Wadi zone.
# Nov 26 2003 at 5:50 PM Rating: Default
The map is not sold, its aquired from a quest.

Who sells the map to this zone?
Wadi Hares
# Nov 19 2003 at 2:07 PM Rating: Default
Wadi Hares are on the second tier of Wadi. Once you go up the geyser that you had to ride for the Cid mission, go depper to discover harder enemies. And yes, Wadi Hares are one of them.
# Nov 17 2003 at 1:06 PM Rating: Decent
I am supposed to use some kind of acidity tester do I just have to go to every geyser and use it, not really sure how to even get to this area...
RE: Cid
# Nov 20 2003 at 5:43 PM Rating: Default
Just the first geyser. The area's entrance is in S. Gusta, all the way in the sw corner (it isn't labeled on the map of S. Gusta, but it's there). Once inside, go straight until you hit a T-junction, turn right, go straight until you hit another T-junction, go right, and go straight. You will hit a dead end with a geyser. Stand on it and let it take you up. The tester will turn red (you won't get a message, it will just change in your key item inventory), then take it back to Cid.

The hares are all over the place within the Wadi. Just look around the bigger areas (not the pathways).

You can get a map for the area by doing a quest in Bastok.

This might sounds dumb but where are the wadi hares ?
# Nov 08 2003 at 1:59 AM Rating: Decent
can anyone point me to the wadi? I have no clue where its at in sgusta
# Apr 13 2005 at 11:09 AM Rating: Decent
Dangruf Wadi is in the far west and south of south gustaberg. I say west and south because it's more west and less south from Bastok. There's an area on the Gustaberg map that says "Fumerones" or something similar, that is the enterance to Dangruf Wadi.

Set back by the southwestern corner of South Gustaberg, the Dangruf Wadi is a very distinctly staged zone, with the degrees of difficulty marked to an extent by the geysers that must be ridden to get to some sections.

Though the area may seem to be a "dead end" exiting only to South Gustaberg, its logical proximity to the west side of North Gustaberg makes it a likely location for some path to the Drachenfell's base, which is unreachable from N Gusta itself.

The zone is the destination for several various Missions and Quests, though the most significant is probably the tendency for Wadi Hares to hoarde Gausebit Grass, a foodstuff that can be used somehow in relation to chocobos...

Monsters: Goblin: Weaver, Thug, Ambusher, Tinkerer, Butcher, Mugger, Gambler, Leecher. Rock Lizard, Steam Lizard, Stone Eater, Giant Grub, Hoarder Hare, Wadi Hare, Wadi Leech, NMs.

(The location of treasure chests is semi-random, it may take some looking to find them. And yes, they're often in the deeper sections of the zone.)

Dangruf Chest Key
# Nov 05 2003 at 9:09 PM Rating: Default
anybody know where the "Dangruf Wadi Treasure Chests" might be ? We have found a buncha keys but don't know where to use 'em!

keys drop off of Goblin Butchers/Trinketers
RE: Dangruf Chest Key
# Nov 06 2003 at 8:56 AM Rating: Default
perhaps those keys will unlock the "dimmed path" on the map leading the from the harder area to the easier one so you can leave easier...
RE: Dangruf Chest Key
# Nov 07 2003 at 8:47 PM Rating: Default
found out the other day that the "dimmed path" is simply a tunnel. There are tough gamblers and muggers in there however :P

still haven't found treasure chest, i'm assuming it's behind the goblin gamblers that I have not been able to fight yet.
