No Hunters Allowed


House of Hexes is a shack in the woods near Malmalam Thicket in Final Fantasy XV. It is an old wooden house with a parasol and a chair outside. Kimya Auburnbrie lives here, the sister of Ezma Auburnbrie, the leader of the Hunters. Kimya's potion-brewing skills were branded witchcraft and she was banished to the woods, where she sells her concoctions to whose who wish to buy them.

The shack can be discovered through an off-road path near the entrance of Malmalam Thicket; the easiest way to reach it is via the The Witch of the Woods sidequest, whose location marker leads the player directly to the shack. After the player has interacted with Kimya Auburnbrie, a shop icon appears at the location of the shack on the world map.



House of Hexes is an item shop near the entrance to Malmalam Thicket. After David Auburnbrie goes missing, he can be found near here.

After completing the previous Dave's quest, the player can spot a question mark on the world map indicating his next location at Verinas Mart - Ravatogh. When the player arrives at the outpost, Dave has gone missing. The chef at Erupto Eats asks the party to look for Dave, initiating the quest. The quest location marker pins Dave at a sign near Malmalam Thicket that forbids hunters from entering. After talking to Dave, the quest location marker leads the player to Kimya at the House of Hexes nearby who directs the party to the depths of Malmalam Thicket to find the dog tag. After defeating the boss (a bandersnatch) at the end of the narrow path above the fountain, the party can find the tag behind a rock to the west of the tomb. The quest leads the player back to Kimya Auburnbrie for a scene (the reason why Malmalam Thicket is off-limits for the hunters), then to Dave in Meldacio Hunter HQ for the final reward.

Scraps of Mystery[]

Kimya's shack has a map scrap behind it on a wooden frame. It marks the Cape Caem lighthouse, and the treasure is found at the top. The player can take the lift to the top from Chapter 9 onwards. This is the only map piece the player can only get by returning to Lucis from later in the game.



Hex is an evil spell or curse. It is also a rarely used word for a witch.
