The Mamool Ja Savagelands is a woodland region in Final Fantasy XI. This thick rainforest is teeming with life, and is the home of the Mamool Ja Savages, who reside in the city of Mamook. This region requires the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion to access.
The capital of Mamool Ja, Mamook was built deep in a forest on a peninsula west of the Aht Urhgan Empire. In order to control parasite infestations, the wooden structures that cover the capital are burned down and rebuilt every few years. Therefore, much of the construction in Mamook appears rather crude. Like the Mamool Ja's equipment, the few intricate decorative metals in the area were created by prisoners taken by Mamook. Furthermore, sacred stones situated in each area of the capital are believed to harbor the spirits of fallen Mamool Ja heroes and protect Mamook from evil.
Throughout the zone are cells where players can rescue NPCs taken hostage after a Besieged event.
This tomb is a sacred site of the Mamool Ja Savages. It is used as a battlefield event for story missions and ISNM.
The Wajaom Woodlands cover a vast stretch of land to the west of the Imperial capital. The name "Wajaom", meaning "abundance" in the language of Aht Urhgan, is a fitting term to describe the rainforest tract that also encompasses the Bhaflau thickets to the north. The areas are home to a rich variety of fauna, from birds that hover in the air with their rapid wingbeats to bees that build hives of enormous size. Once the Imperial Army's watchtowers and patrolled routes allowed children to safely enjoy berry gathering in the forest, but due to the Empire's weakened defenses, the woodland paths are now used by the Mamool Ja for raids on the Imperial capital.
One notable landmark is the Leypoint, located near the center of the zone. Aside from being a popular spot for experience parties, players can teleport to this landmark by using the Olduum Ring obtained via a quest. Similar to the Telepoints in the Middle Lands, a Chocobo rental service is available for the convenience of travelers.
This extensive network of tunnels lying beneath the Wajaom Woodlands is covered in subterranean plants, ranging from vines to ferns, fungi, and moss, giving the caverns a unique vibrancy unseen on the surface. The Aydeewa Subterrane was once a site of the ancient Olduum civilization until sinking almost completely into the ocean.
However, traces of the past can still be seen in the stone pillars and altars scattered about the area. The Empire of Aht Urhgan maintained the caverns until recently, when the increasing beastman threat forced them to withdraw. Now the Aydeewa Subterrane is plagued with Qiqirn and Mamool Ja thieves looking for treasure among the ruins.
This zone is unique as it connects to several zones throughout the Near East.
Mamool Ja Training GroundsEdit
