May update with more as I think of them.. but here is at the very first installment of favorite areas in Vana’diel.. a parting appreciation post.
4. San d’Oria – My home nation, I love its castle walls and Ronfaure’s soothing forest song and outlining area
2. Sanctuary of Zi’Tah: A zone I always intended on spending more time at, but it didn’t end up happening. Generally was always passing through on the way to the Tree for parties. Beautiful Zone though and beautiful music. Loved the Old Mystic Forrest feel! 🙂
1. Lufaise Meadows: Overlooking Old Tavnazia – NE Lufaise Meadows near BlueBlade Fell. To get there have to go through a tunnel and then sneak and invisible past a bunch of big birds. Be cautious if going at night, as a party of fomors (PLD, DRK, DRG, BLM) pop on that same lookout area. I’ve never been aggo’d by them, however I’ve never been part of taking out any fomors in that area, so I have absolutely no fomor hate. I also don’t dance in the middle of them to push my luck. I stay to the side and they don’t come near, and they leave me alone. There is also a tough to 75 Wind Elemental that pops occasionally so casters take care. Very cool when the dragons come out and start flying around! Thank you Audessa for helping me find it again. This is the place that Squeekers showed me long ago.. its the first time I’ve been back since then, and it is the place that Katella will be logging out for the very last time this month. Lufaise Meadows and the Misareaux Coast are two zones that I adored, and didn’t explore as much as I should have. Very beautiful! Always entranced by this area, even wrote a story for Katella at one point that traced her part of her heritage to this area. Forgive me, I took too many screenshots here.. 🙂
