The grasslands that make up the La Theine Plateau are located high above the surrounding areas. Once known for the flocks of wild chocobos that dotted the meadows, the plateau is now overrun with giant sheep that are herded by the local Elvaan. The area is also characterized by deep crevices that seem to tear apart the land; torrential rainfall is also common. As a result of the heavy precipitation, rainbows can frequently be spotted while traveling through the plateau.

Points of Interest


The map for La Theine Plateau is included in the Map of the San d'Oria Area, which can be purchased from most any Map Dealer.

At around J-8 near the Crag, there's a spot marked ??? and it wants some items or so. Does anyone know what it wants?

That would be the Goblin Archaeologist

Directions to Ordelle's Cave
# Sep 20 2007 at 6:39 AM Rating: Decent
Because I hadn't been here in forever, I forgot where the zone to Ordelle's Cave was. After running around, asking several ppl, and looking on here..... I finally found it. Because all the previous posts are clear as mud, I have included directions below.

The ramp to Ordelle's Cave is at F-6, this ramp will lead you into the valley where you will find the zone in the cave at F-7. Hope this helps.

RE: H-7 Ordelle Caves Entrance
# Mar 20 2006 at 10:55 PM Rating: Decent
go to ordelle caves in F-6, after entering go to east road, follow the road huging left side until u find an entrance at left side (East) and keep goin until u find an entrance at right side (south), go in and keep going South untill u get to the bottom (2nd drop hole), drop and go East and keep goin until u get to I-6 in 3rd map, go turn right (south) and hug right wall and keep going then you will zone to H-7.

Hope this helps ^^

What is the FallenEgg at L-11 for?
RE: FallenEgg
# Oct 22 2005 at 1:17 PM Rating: Excellent

It's a bird NM, Nhiniknoovi (I'm not sure how it's spelled O.o). Once you check a FallenEgg point, it will respawn in five minutes, and can spawn in any of the positions already mentioned. You may or not get a bird egg, and the NM may or may not spawn; you just have to keep running around La Theine until you find it again if it doesn't spawn right away. -_- It's soloable around level 20, and it drops the Van Pendant, a neck piece, Def: 3, with enemy critical hit rate -1%, for lvl 14 all jobs.

I had a similar experience, I was duoing with my husband in La Theine and found a Fallen Egg; I'm not exactly sure of the position, but I believe it was around I-5 or I-6. After I examined it, it disappeared, so my husband couldn't examine it as well. If anyone has any information on what this is for (I would assume a quest of some sort), please let at least three inquiring minds know! Thanks. ^_^

I found this too, no clue what it is for. mine was at (L-7). touched it and it said "you find a broken egg here, perhaps there is a nest in the boughs of this tree."

I've seen FallenEgg at L-7 and L-11 (so I can confirm both positions)...none of my LS could tell me what is was, I got the same message (about the broken egg fallen from a nest) as the above.
I've noticed that FallenEgg seems to be able to spawn anywhere funguars are (I was leveling BST and killed a few and then I notice "FallenEgg") on the map.

La Theine Plateau
Location: J-7
Reward: 1,000G
This one is a bit trickier... Go to the Ephemere (the lake in the northern center part of region). Go north of it and down into the valley there (there is a path leading down at the south edge of the valley). Once down at the bottom, follow that valley east, then you'll go through a cave into another valley which you follow into another cave and into a third valley. At the end of this third valley is the monument... It's a long run, I suggest a choco.

11- La Theine Plateau
J7, Go down the gorge at H7 and follow the cave roads to the monument - 1000gil

they spawn at F-6 and H-10 trust me i hunt alot!! Water elements spaw 3 places here as well they are K-11, L-10 and H-7 hopes this helps!
RE: Elemental
# Sep 23 2004 at 2:42 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, the Air Elemental Spawns under windy conditions near C-4 (like the explosive X_X). There's an dead end area that cuts into the mountains there. It's pretty safe except for the elemental ^_^

edit- I've seen the AE near other canyons in the south also; it's not exclusive to the northwest.

??? near Crag
# May 26 2004 at 5:51 AM Rating: Good
983 posts
the ??? near the Crag of Holla is a NM (Goblin Archeologist). If you give it stuff of enough value it will spawn. From reading the posts about it its strength seems very variable and might depend on anything from the value of the goods it was fed to the day of the week/phase of moon to the amount of time between when it comes back as ??? and when people feed it enough to bring it to the surface.

Edited, Wed May 26 07:04:20 2004
Yay for Jhereg!
RE: ??? near Crag
# Jun 21 2005 at 7:56 AM Rating: Decent
Just in addition to this:

This mob is spawned by giving the ??? items, and also you can only give it items once per game day. So if you plan on doing this solo or with a buddy or two, plan on waiting a few hours. There are just 2(two) things to understand about this "NM," they are:
1. If someone has been giving items to the ??? it could take alot less time.
2. After you, or your party, have maxxed the items for the hour (supposedly 8 items per hour/game day), other people CAN, and probably will, "feed" it items and perhaps spawn this "NM." So becareful. It could very well be that you get it "extremely close to the surface," and some 15WHM that has been playing for two days comes along, gives it a sheep meat, spawns it and calls for help as he dies. This HAS happened, so prepare for it and keep vigilant for wandering newbs or people that don't care that you've spent 2 or 3 hours trying to spawn him.

People used to camp this guy because it would drop Gold Beastcoins, well "Beastcoin" (not plural), but not so much anymore. Supposedly, it will also drop silver coin(s), which are next to worthless these days. Also the (???) will move from time to time, staying within a perimeter of the Crag itself. You will need to run around and find it again when this happens. I, for the life of me, cannot remember the approximate level of this "NM," but I believe it to be in the 25/6-30ish range. This guy really isn't worth the time of day other than to say you killed him, as a gold coin goes for roughly 6k on Phoenix. Hardly worth the time wasted in spawning him, chancing you don't get the drop or the sheer frustration when someone else comes along and pops him. Hope this helps, or atleasts gives you a better idea.

Worm Spawns
# Apr 06 2004 at 11:28 AM Rating: Decent
Dude, are there any spots in here where worms spawn closely together so it's easy to do a chain. I know worms usually stay close together, however haven't seen any out here yet.
