—Yuna vows to continue her pilgrimage, at Macalania Spring

Macalania Woods is a magical forest in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 filled with springs. The ancestral protectors of Macalania are the three races of musicians: a tall, blue-colored bird-like race with harps, a short race with saxophone-like instruments, and a rotund race with drums. The Guado are exiled to the woods in Final Fantasy X-2. The woods are a junction point for several other locations, being connected to the Thunder Plains at the southern end, to Bevelle in the west, and to the Calm Lands in the east, and Lake Macalania in the north.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final Fantasy X Edit

Yuna & Tidus Macalania Pond

Yuna and Tidus in Macalania Spring.

The party passes through the glittering, maze-like forest on their way to Macalania Temple. Auron recalls an encounter with the Spherimorph and obtains the first Jecht's Sphere. Later, the party hides out in the woods after escaping Bevelle. Yuna is torn over whether to continue the pilgrimage or not and goes off alone to the forest spring. Tidus follows her and tries to persuade her to quit her journey and apologizes for all the times he used to talk about going to his Zanarkand, thinking he only made her sad. Yuna says it wasn't so, and though she contemplates over quitting she finds herself unable to and bursts into tears. Tidus comforts her and the two share a kiss in the spring.

Final Fantasy X-2 Edit

Macalania forest

Yuna in Macalania Forest.

Although there is no requirement to visit Macalania during the direct story, several optional missions are available to gain items, dresspheres, and even change the fate of the inhabitants of the Woods.

The woods are dying due to the fayth at Macalania Temple fading away. The Guado have sought refuge here after being forced to leave Guadosalam by the vengeful Ronso. Completing several missions involving the Ronso and Guado will result in the Guado returning to Guadosalam joined by the musicians, but regardless of what choices the player makes, the woods will eventually fade away.

Yuna also confronts some emotional issues when she visits the Spring and fondly recalls her time there with Tidus.

Spoilers end here.

Episode Complete Edit

Macalania spring ffx-2

Episode Complete in Macalania Woods.

The woods will silently fade away, leaving only memories behind.
—Macalania Woods highlighted on Celsius locations list

The woods are dying, and Yuna is feeling sad about it, as her memories from two years ago are quite precious to her.

To get Episode Complete the player must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Chapter 3 - The player must defeat Garik at Mt. Gagazet.
  • Chapter 5 – The player must visit the spring near the exit to Lake Macalania and then the spring near the exit to the Calm Lands.

If the player took O'aka onboard the Celsius and paid off his debt before the Chapter 3 mission in Lake Macalania, they can gain an optional Episode Complete and witness O'aka and Wantz at the Travel Agency, but the Episode Complete is not in replacement of the main one and does not affect the attainment of Mascot.

Episode ConcludedEdit

Ay, the woods o' Macalania are not long for this world.
—Macalania Woods highlighted on Celsius locations list

The woods are dying, and so are the Guado. An unnamed woman found at Macalania's spring ponders the Guado's fate:

The Guado sought shelter in these woods, but the Ronso hunted down every last man, woman, and child... Though their souls should rightly be stirring, I do not sense a thing. Perhaps they resigned themselves to their unhappy fate and departed willingly for the Farplane... Forgive me, I cannot bear to continue.
