Cavernous Maws  

Contents [hide]

Portals to the Past

Foreboding cavernous maws have appeared at various locations throughout Vana'diel. These large, monstrous maws have opened a portal linking the present to the past. Adventurers can enter the maws to travel back to the time of the Crystal War, which was 20 years prior to the return of the Shadow Lord.

Maws: How to Use Them

Entering the Past

To enter the past, locate and click on a cavernous maw in present-day Sauromugue Champaign, Rolanberry Fields or Batallia Downs. After a cutscene, you will appear in the past outside a maw in either Batallia Downs (S), Sauromugue Champaign (S) or Rolanberry Fields (S).

Your Home Maw

When you first go back in time, whichever maw you appear at in the past becomes your "home maw." If you return to the present, you must use this maw to return to the past until you unlock the use of other maws.

Using other maws

To unlock using other maws, you must find a maw in the past and click on it to return to the present. After doing so, you will be able to click on that maw in the present to return to the past.
