The ice-covered Qufim Island sits directly north of the Grand Duchy of Jeuno. Traditional access to the island begins as a long tunnel that lies beneath the Sea of Shu'Meyo, beginning at Port Jeuno and opening up onto the frozen surface of Qufim, near the cliffs. Due to its being so close to Jeuno, adventurers often use this place to further hone their skills and prepare for dangerous battles by seeking out the Gigas and other monsters that make their homes here. However, the undead come out at night, often sending less experienced adventurers running to find safe haven until the light of day.

Points of Interest

  • "Worm Lake" at (H-7), a popular exp camp for quickly leveling from 19-22, since there are worms and crabs available. The only drawback are the three Bogies that spawn around the icy lake in the center.
  • Hieroglyphics for Dynamis - Qufim are found just inside the northeast tunnel from "Worm Lake", at (H-7)
  • Garrison can be done in this zone.
  • Dosetsu Tree and Trickster Kinetix can be found here.


The Map of Qufim Island can be bought for 3,000 gil from Promurouve in Lower Jeuno or Rusese in Upper Jeuno.

Loot is not really an issue, because they usually go to kazham after, and the only thing I got from lvl 25-30 in kazham was a handful of two-leaf mandragoras thingies, a few beastman seals, and a half-dozen silver coins that I stole.

Making money and levelling is usually two separate activites in this game.
Don't like qufim

What I don't like about Qufim though is the loot seems to be pretty bad. So you might gain several levels here, but not have enough gil to buy appropriate armor/weapons for your new level.

The minimum level for this zone could probably be bumped down to 20; hunting the Land Worms for XP chains is very popular among parties of level 20+ characters. If the ruler is to be for solo however, then 25 remains appropriate.

ONCE AGAIN! the MINIMUM LEVEL is the LOWEST LEVEL of the ***MOB*** that you'll see there.
The maximum lvl, is the HIGHEST LEVEL of the ***MOB*** that you'll see there.
Character level has NOTHING to do with it!

The minimum level has nothing to do with CHARACTER level.

It is the Min level of the MONSTERS you will find here. Same as Max level

Even L18 & L19 have a chance in a well balanced group.

In a group of 5-6 level 19-21, we handled this zone well.
Of course, we used Renkei/MB chains at every chance, but still very doable in a balanced group <25.
