Coerthas ARR 01

Coerthas (クルザス, Kuruzasu?) is a location in Final Fantasy XIV. It was a mountainous region outside the city of Ishgard in version 1.0, located northwest of the Black Shroud and north of Mor Dhona. The area has been redesigned to be a snow-covered highlands in A Realm Reborn.

GeographyEdit

The Holy See of IshgardEdit

One of the great City-States of Eorzea. The archbishop of the Ishgard Orthodox Church, while leading his people in the teachings of Halone, the Fury, rules also as the nation's sovereign.

The Coerthas Central HighlandsEdit

These highlands lie just outside the Holy See, surrounding a mountain known as The Nail. In A Realm Reborn, this was the only part of Coerthas available to visit, and is covered in snow.

The Coerthas Western HighlandsEdit

The highlands bordering Dravania, distinguished by the Twinpools: Ashpool and Banepool. The Calamity has since resulted in a severe glaciation of the area, cutting it off from the Central Highlands and freezing over all but a few pools of water.

Though present in version 1.0, it did not return until Heavensward.

Aetheryte Sanctuaries Edit

  • The Foundation
  • Camp Dragonhead (Central Highlands)
  • Falcon's Nest (Western Highlands)

InstancesEdit

Musical Themes Edit

"Fealty" is the the theme used outside settlements during the day. "The Land Breaks" is the Battle Theme of the region.

Version 1.0 Edit

Main article: Coerthas/Legacy

Coerthas was a popular zone in version 1.0, even though it didn't have an accessible city-state. After the additions of the dungeons Dzemael Darkhold and The Aurum Vale, the Ixali stronghold of Natalan, the entrance to the Howling Eye (Garuda's battle arena) and lucrative gathering points, Camp Dragonhead in particular was among the most frequently visited camps in the game. Camp Glory saw its fair share of activity as well, being near many mid-late level quest destinations, such as the Owl's Nest.

Camps Crooked Fork and Riversmeet would see little activity even after the addition of some conclusive quests for the Seventh Umbral Era, such as "Living on a Prayer" and the finale for the Lambs of Dalamud. Like the majority of Coerthas and Mor Dhona, these areas were populated by monsters that far exceeded the level cap of 50, sometimes breaching 90, making them dangerous for wayward explorers.

A tremendous amount of the Coerthas map is missing in A Realm Reborn. While the majority of the Black Shroud, La Noscea and Thanalan are present in the new map (with a few expansions even having taken place), out of five major regions on the original Coerthas map, only one is currently accessible in A Realm Reborn. The Central Highlands, or the center of the old map, are accessible, but both of the "lowland" areas, along with the Western and Eastern Highlands, are both currently inaccessible.
