Final Fantasy Wiki

The Ancients' Maze is a location in Final Fantasy III. It houses the Earth Crystal, guarded by the Titan. The maze circles around the Crystal Tower, preventing any access to it other than through the Maze itself. It is one of the last dungeons in the game, and thus, contains really powerful enemies.
