Windurst Woods is often the most heavily populated of the four Windurst zones in the world of Final Fantasy XI. It contains the Auction House, the Chocobo Stables, the Manustery, the Consulate of San d'Oria, and a residential area. High level players often travel through this zone to take advantage of the cheap warp service to Aht Urhgan Whitegate.
There are two guilds in this area of town: the Weaver's Guild and the Boneworker's Guild. Shops for both guilds are nearby, along with Nchaa's Good Goods. In the north area of the zone there is a Dhalmel Farm and the Mithra Groves, where famous characters such as the legendary ranger Perih Vashai and the infamous Nanaa Mihgo live.
