Final Fantasy Wiki


Xarcabard is a location in Final Fantasy XI. It is an ice-covered land in the Valdeaunia region, with ruins dotting the landscape. There are ruins of the Dark Kindred throughout the area, as well as some ruins from a more ancient civilization. The terrain is very mountainous, making travel in the northern parts of Xarcabard more complicated. Giants, demons and undead roam the snowy area. There have also been reports of dragon sightings.


Xarcabard Auroras[]

The colorful auroras found in Xarcabard.

Auroras can be found in the Xarcabard area, appearing most prominently in the foothills of the terrain leading up to Castle Zvahl. While the auroras may be mesmerizing, they can also distract adventurers from the real dangers that stalk the outside of Castle Zvahl, such as demons and undead. Adventurers are advised to explore with caution. The ahriman NM Shadow Eye can be found near the auroras in Xarcabard.
