The frozen zone of Xarcabard was once a lush, mountainous region teeming with forests and wildlife. This region was once the site of the Vahzl Mothercrystal. In an epic battle of ancient races, the crystal was destroyed, unleashing a powerful blast that forever changed this once-beautiful corner of the world.

Then, in the year 855 CE, word swept through the nations of Vana'diel that a mysterious Shadow Lord was amassing the beastmen forces from the cold reaches of Xarcabard. The mysterious Shadow Lord built a giant fortress on the western edge of Xarcabard called Castle Zvahl. It is in this zone that one of the most important battles in the history of Vana'diel will occur.

Start out in Batalia Downs (S) by either using the Campaign teleporter or the Cavernous Maw.
The just walk up the hill to the tunnel (no obstacle in the past), zone into Beaucedine Glacier (S) and follow the regular route to the Xarcabard (S) zone.

If you have the maps in the present then you will also have them in the past.

n.b.: watch out for True-Sight mobs along the way (imps and taurus).
