Tricky Spirits in Salikawood.

The chirping of birds can always be heard here. An abandoned keep stands in the middle of the wood.


Salikawood (サリカ樹林, Sarika jurin?) is the woodland location in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. The first fight with Babus Swain in "Mission #010: Emerald Keep" occurs here. Rumors of a giant emerald Crystal bring Babus and Marche to the same location in the wood, where Marche lets slip that he knows Prince Mewt and Babus attempted to apprehend him. It can be freed in "Mission #248: The Salikawood" after "Mission #012: Jagd Hunt" is completed.
