Part of it serves as a starting zone for players who begin in Gridania.

Story[edit | edit source]

Locations[edit | edit source]

The North Shroud is situated in the northwestern reaches of the Black Shroud, just west of Gridania proper.

This zone connects to Central Shroud through Alder Springs in the south, and to the Coerthas Central Highlands far in the west. The Yellow Serpent Gate connects to Old Gridania.

Aetherytes[edit | edit source]

Fallgourd Float.

The only Aetheryte is located at Fallgourd Float, roughly at the center of the map.

Areas[edit | edit source]

Central Shroud contains the following areas:

  • Treespeak - Low level area in the east, next to Gridania.
  • Peacegarden – Northeastern section.
  • Alder springs – A rugged area to the west devoid of living trees.
  • Proud Creek - Northern section with high-level enemies.

Settlements[edit | edit source]

Places of interest[edit | edit source]

Treespeak Stables[edit | edit source]

A chocobo ranch located just outside the Yellow Serpent Gate.

Gelmorra Ruins[edit | edit source]

Finder's Bluff[edit | edit source]

A mining camp set up in the hills southwest of Fallgourd Float.

The Fallen Neurolink[edit | edit source]

This colossal Allagan device fell from Dalamud when it broke apart as Bahamut broke free of his bindings. Measuring hundreds of yalms across, this was one of five such restraints used on the Elder Primal, and now remains permanently embedded in the Black Shroud's landscape.

Ixali Logging Grounds[edit | edit source]

Situated on the shore of Lake Tahtotl, the Ixal continually take lumber from the outskirts of the Black Shroud (and certainly without permission). The lumber is eventually transported via balloncraft to their homeland in the mountains.

Level 50

Entrance found at coordinates (20, 27) and in various instances that players are deposited in after clearing Turns 1-3 for the first time. These instances cannot be reentered in any way, not even through New Game+.

Your foray into the caverns beneath Castrum Occidens has led you to an unexpected revelation: the incomplete form of Bahamut, harbinger of the Calamity, slumbers deep within earth. Though seemingly a prisoner, the elder primal is gradually being regenerated by the massive, Ragnarok-class internment hulks that surround the unmoving entity. Alisaie reasons that if Bahamut's full restoration is to be prevented, then all three coils sustaining and repairing the dreadful being must be deactivated. Filled with new determination, you assemble a group of courageous comrades and set your sights on the fragment of Dalamud found in the North Shroud.
The Second Coil of Bahamut - Turn 2.

After battling your way through to the base of the colossal fragment that impales the ground in Alder Springs, your party enters the structure through an opening in its outer shell. The sight that greets you is of an endless procession of azure-lit passages, within which can be glimpsed the grotesque silhouettes of chimerical monstrosities.

The great cavern where the elder primal Bahamut dreams is yet many thousands of yalms distant. Explore the labyrinthine passages of the Ragnarok-class starship, and secure a route into the lowest levels of the hulk.
