The birdlike beastmen known as the Yagudo spent decades carving this stronghold out of the mountains in the Meriphataud Range. In addition to being strictly guarded, the interior of the castle is extremely complex and littered with traps and curses that only members of the Yagudo Theomilitary have been informed of.

You can find the map in windy woods by the same person that sells all the other maps. She's in one of the tents near the fountain there. I think her name is Penki Mauchamat or something close to that.

Here is the 7 maps for Oztroja, this doesn't list which one connects to which though(well there's sort of a legend), my best advice of course is to spend the money in Windurst for the map aswell as using this.

Castle Oztroja Map

Anytime I'm looking for a map I got to this Site Here each zone can be clicked on for the map. It even has special maps to help you navigate the jungles of Kazham better. I love it.

JPs Training Mobs On Coffer Hunters
# Jul 10 2004 at 5:47 AM Rating: Decent
Is Fairy the only server that has high level JP ******** that intentionally train mobs (usually leeches) on other coffer hunters to get them killed? There was Pingu doing it for a long time on Rairy but he's finally banned, and now there's another level 75 prick named Hirosimo doing it. He'll attack a leech in the pool so they all link, run upstairs to the last flight of stairs before the top floor, then log out ot reset aggro. Most of the time the leeches will run into someone on their way back to the pool, forcing them to 2-hour and instant warp out, or die.

I'm guessing he's another one of the loser gil sellers (like Pingu was) that needs to go out and get a job, but that's still pretty gay. Hopefully he'll get banned just like Pingu.

Do any of the other servers have douchebags like this in Oztroja? ********* like him make me wish even more that SquareEnix would start making JP only and NA only servers.

Bah, you make me sick. If you want to spout biased opinions, DO IT TO YOURSELF. No other civilized person wants to see this.

Just for your information, it's not just the Japanese players. I've seen mostly American players training mobs on Midgardsormr. Go do your little "super-race" tirade somewhere else.

I completely agree with Terisias... if I were you, I'd worry much more about US noobs who had their buddies PL them, so they look like they should know what they're doing based on their level... but don't have the right spells, equip, tactics, etc. I just love being asked by a lev 30 WAR what the mithkabob I just ate does.

They're the dangerous ones.

You're always gonna have to dodge a few trains. Deal with it.

BTW, if you enjoy JP bashing - go play some other game.

Air elemental scrolls also drop from the yagudos in Saurumogue, so you don't have to run all the way into the castle to hunt for them.

Ok, they should have made the Yagudo Conquistador a dark knight or at least a warrior type.

According to the *** web site, the ring can be found in the coffer treasure chests. The coffer keys are dropped by the following mobs:

Yagudo Prelate
Yagudo Conducter
Yagudo Flagellant
Yagudo Assassin
Yagudo's Elemental

Can someone please confirm this?

You're correct on the first four. Never got a drop from the elemental though, but I can't say it will/won't drop the key.

Just FYI for people that weren't aware - Astral Rings used to be found (randomly) in Coffers in Castle Oztroja. That has changed a patch or two ago, and they currently can only be found in BCNMs as far as I am aware.

It was a good switch, as I hear it was a real pain in the butt for anybody wishing to get their AF pieces in the Castle, as high lev THFs were always coffer hunting for the very nice and spendy rings (were like 450k on Garuda last year, now they can be 700k+)... glad I already have a pair - too bad they're only really useful for me now with my SMN.

K-8 its at. You have to get to it from the north side of the barrier. Its near the "Drogaroga's Spine" text on the map.

Air Elemtnal spells for SMN and Ninja scroll Huton: Ni droped in here while we did rank 5 mission.

Oh Horde Lullabye too.

18 of us are blazing a path through did not get what dropped them sorry.
RE: Drop
# Jan 28 2004 at 10:50 AM Rating: Excellent
My guess is that the SMN pact was dropped from a Oracle, the bard song was dropped by a Drummer. I would just guess that Huton:Ni dropped from aconquistador or whatever other ninjs there are there.

How to get there

Eastern side, about middle of Meriphataud Mountains. You'll see this castle looking place made of the local rock, built into the hills. That's the place.
