Yhoator Jungle

The tropical Yhoator Jungle covers most of the Elshimo Highlands. While similar to the Yuhtunga Jungle, the overall altitude increase results in slight wildlife differences. Also, this jungle is teeming with the ruthless Tonberries. If a Mithra's prey escapes into this deadly jungle during a hunt, she will not follow, recognizing that the animal has chosen death over capture.

Cloister of Flames

This chamber within Ifrit's Cauldron holds the fire protocrystal, which is said to encase the fiery avatar of Ifrit.

This is a battlefield zone where adventurers can challenge Ifrit. The quest Waking the Beast also involves this zone.

Cloister of Tides

Deep within the caves of the Den of Rancor, this chamber holds the water protocrystal said to imprison the mighty avatar of Leviathan.

This is a battlefield zone where adventurers can fight Leviathan. The quest Waking the Beast also involves this zone.

Den of Rancor

Dug by the Tonberries, this stretch of tunnel extends deep beneath the Temple of Uggalepih. It is said that the Tonberries chanted curses while digging, and that these curses still remain, embedded within the walls of the caves. Every night, the Tonberries gather here to pledge their hatred towards the five races of Vana'diel. They inflict cuts upon themselves and pour their blood onto altars, hence strengthening their rancor.

The word "rancor" means "ill will or malice", and was also the name of a giant beast living inside a small cave in Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi.

Ifrit's Cauldron

Mount Yuhtunga rises above the trees of Yhoator Jungle, but within the mighty volcano are numerous tunnels filled with goblins, bombs, dragons and more. The inner sanctum of this large mountain is known as Ifrit's Cauldron.

Adventurers can enter Ifrit's Cauldron from two places in Yhoator Jungle. Inside, adventurers can move through vents and caves, occasionally blocked by lava spouts and ledges. Paths circle around the fiery crater at the center of Mount Yuhtunga. Deep within the caves is a chamber holding a protocrystal said to house the mighty avatar of Ifrit.

Sacrificial Chamber

This chamber in the depths of the Den of Rancor is where the Tonberries make sacrifices to the goddess Uggalepih. Adventurers journey here to battle powerful monsters.

Temple of Uggalepih

Hidden deep within the dense jungle of Eastern Elshimo lies a dark, ancient temple. While it is not known by whom, or for what reason this temple was built, it is currently occupied by the Tonberries, who use it as a place to worship the evil deity Uggalepih. The local Mithra fear this "temple of misery," and advise that all keep their distance. The technology used to construct its walls and pillars suggest that a high level of civilization was once centered in the surrounding jungles. However, nature has taken its course over the centuries, and now giant trees and plants slowly eat away at this once mighty structure.
