This arid terrain situated on a peninsula that juts out into the Bastore Sea. The area is considered a gateway between the Mindartia and Quon continents, due to its proximity to the Strait of Jeuno. As a result, numerous territories -- civilized and beastmen, alike -- have vied for its control. Even with the invention of the airship and its revolutionary impact on travel, the conflict continues...

switch and run

The best way i found to do it was to switch to a lvl 1 job that i didnt use and then head for jeuno. Make sure to bind to all home points as you go cause it is almost a certainty that you will die at least once but will not loose any valuble exp cause you are lvl 1 ;)

Following the "left" (south/west) wall was *much* easier for me than folling the road. So if you are having trouble with the road, it might be worth your time to try the walls. I had to wait for a couple mobs to pass by, but I was never aggroed, and made it through by passing through Rolanberry and around into Jeuno. Also, don't try passing through here at night. My first try envolved death by skink... Being hit for 220 on a crit was not fun.

I have since scouted both paths on chocobo and i agree that the south wall route seems like it may be a better one. Generally, the area is a little bit narrower so there is less room to go around things (but theres also less directions for aggros to sneak up from), but it is significantly less dense in mobs with most of them solo, with the exception of a few times you will see a few gobbies or yags all hudled together. And there seem to be a *lot* less skinks. I have not actually tried the passage on foot yet however so there may be a factor i am not considering.

Also note that waste of time to go from here into rolanberry if you want to get to Jeuno. (The reason for the bridges is to bypass Jeuno when on chocobo so you can ride from one continent to the other without having to get off the chocobo and buy a new one at Jeuno). Once you get to where the entrance is to the rolan bridge its really only a very short distance north to the gate to Jeuno, and this area right by the Jeuno gate is probably the safest part of the champaign as it is much sparser with mobs than the middle areas.

I made it through here on foot on the way to Jeuno and I dont recommend it. Died twice and finally made it on the third try. The trick is stick mostly to the road, but get off of it when you need to to avoid aggros (mostly Yags, Gobs, and these nasty blue dinosaur thingys i forgot he name of). Also proceed slowly and sometimes you need to stand off to the side with no aggros nearby and wait for the path ahead of you to clear up before you proceed.

The nastiest concentration of mobs seemed to be in the middle where it turns from N-S to E-W, once you get past there the aggro mob density seemed to me to drop off. oh yeah if you are level 20 and you trigger and aggro, your basically dead.. 80/hit pain. The Yag Drummers are particularly obnoxious as they sung some sleep spell at me that kept causing me to stop running and get hit again.

Sauromugue Champaign is pretty nasty. Its safer going through Rolanberry Fields to be honest.

You take the ferry from Mhura to Selbina, and run from there.

If you run from selbina, instead of those 'raptors' you'll encounter tigers, and those you have NO chance of outrunning.(Unless you're very close to the onze) So either way is hard.

This is way late, but just to clarify. The path being suggested takes you through Rolenberry Fields which is typically the Bastoker's path to Jeuno. The tigers mentioned about are in Junger forrest which was not actually mentioned at all, and is a poor choice, however doable. I came from Sandoria, but opted to take the Pashlow -> Rollenberry route to Jeuno as it was much easier to sneak through. If there is anything to worry about while doing this it would be traveling at night, but since when was that a great idea in any zone.

Basically, I am just saying it is easier to pass through Rollenberry Fields than any of the other zones surrounding Jeuno. There is far less aggro and the music is nicer too.^^
