Story[edit | edit source]
Locations[edit | edit source]
Southern Thanalan is located to the southeast of Ul'dah. It connects to Central Thanalan in the northwest and to Eastern Thanalan in the north. This zone is the mostly southernly part of Eorzea, and one of the hottest.
Aetherytes[edit | edit source]
There are two Aetherytes in the zone: at Little Ala Mhigo in the north, and Forgotten Springs in the south.
Areas[edit | edit source]
Southern Thanalan contains the following areas:
- Broken Water - Badlands in the northern part of the zone.
- The Red Labyrinth - A side canyon used to bypass Amalj'aa territory.
- Sagolii Desert – An immense dune-covered desert in the south.
- Zan'rak - An outer encampment of the Amalj'aa, in the center.
- Zahar'ak - The inner stronghold of the Amalj'aa, east-central.
Settlements[edit | edit source]
Little Ala Mhigo[edit | edit source]
These caves serve as a refuge for displaced citizens of Ala Mhigo that could not adapt to life in Ul'dah. Despite this, the resistance leader Gundobald has permitted the Flame Serpents to operate a garrison here.
Forgotten Springs[edit | edit source]
Located on the edge of the Sagolii Desert, this settlement is primarily home to the U tribe of Miqo'te, also known as "Children of the Sand."
Weather[edit | edit source]
Eastern Thanalan's semi-climate may exhibit any of the following weather conditions:
- Clear Skies
- Heat Wave
Places of interest[edit | edit source]
The Sepulchre[edit | edit source]
These caves are the lair of the Corpse Brigade, the former Ala Mhigan palace guard turned bandits.
The Sunken Temple of Qarn[edit | edit source]
These Belah'dian ruins are believed to have once been used by Belah'dian culture as a temple to worship Azeyma, the Warden. Recent research suggests the temple complex itself was originally built by an older civilization.
Nald's Reflection[edit | edit source]
A shrine to Nald, god of traders, along the road in Wellwick Wood. A tunnel leading to Minotaur Malm allows safe access to Forgotten Springs.
Minotaur Malm[edit | edit source]
Part of a cave complex leading to Forgotten Springs, the name comes from a legend of a goatherd being chased by a minotaur through the caves for a malm. While the creature has never been confirmed to exist, this hasn't stopped it from deterring the more fearful travelers.
Byregot's Strike[edit | edit source]
A mining station in the middle of the Sagolii Desert.
Zahar'ak[edit | edit source]
The main stronghold of the Amal'jaa, built into the canyons of Southern Thanalan, just north of the Sagolii Desert.
