Nabreus Deadlands.

The Nabreus Deadlands (ナブレウス湿原, Nabureusu Shitsugen?) is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is a mist-thick wetlands area north of the Salikawood.

The entire area is completely optional. The player must come to the Deadlands to complete the Three Medallions Sidequest in order to get the Esper Chaos.

The Nabreus Deadlands are located just to the North of Salikawood, in the Nabradia region. Towards the west lies the Necrohol of Nabudis.

Sage KnowledgeEdit

Place once known as Nabudis, the prosperous capital of Nabradia. In the war against Archadia two years ago, the city was utterly destroyed, leaving nothing but an eerie waste of swirling Mist. Even by day, the sun does not penetrate that ever present fog. Beneath it, dense Mist has given rise to all manner of bizarre flora and fauna of an invariably vicious temperament.
—Sage Knowledge 63, Nabreus Deadlands


Crystalbug in deadlands

The Gate Crystal in the Deadlands is a Crystalbug.

Nabudis Deadlands has three weather conditions:

  • Sunny
  • Cloudy (fog drifting in the air)
  • Heavy Fog (poor visibility)

During heavy fog, Water damage is boosted by 20%. The Leamonde Entite appears in the Slumbermead area during heavy fog as well.


See also: Treasure (Final Fantasy XII)

The most common item treasure in the area is some type of Fang. With the Diamond Armlet equipped the common item treasure is Knot of Rust, and the rare item treasure is X-Potion.

In the southwest corner of Vale of Lingering Sorrow a random treasure may contain the Golden Amulet. The southernmost treasure in the Echoes of the Past area can have an Elixir, which is a rare occurrence of an Elixir treasure without the need to equip the Diamond Armlet.

This treasure is good for farming because it spawns 80% of the time, and has only 15% chance to contain gil. A treasure in the middle of the northern area of the Slumbermead may have the Nishijin Belt. The treasure on the little "island" in the middle of the Lifeless Strand area can have the Gillie Boots.

Main article: Chaos (Final Fantasy XII Boss)#Side Quest

To fight Chaos in Necrohol of Nabudis the player must complete a side quest to obtain the appointed keys. The player must go to Nabreus Deadlands to trigger the scene with the nu mou Ma'Kleou, and then collect three medallions. The medallions are found in Royal City of Rabanastre and Imperial City of Archades, and after giving the first two medallions to the nu mou, the player return to Nabreus Deadlands and talk to Ma'Kleou.

The player must head northwest and search for a hidden path and at the end of the path there is a monument with the nu mou, and the player gets the Medallion of Bravery, Medallion of Love, and the Lustreless Medallion. These can be used to open sealed areas in the Necrohol of Nabudis.

Land of DeathEdit

Two years ago, Judge Zecht came to Nabradia with the intention of testing the Midlight Shard for Dr. Cid. The result was the destruction of the entire area, covering it in a thick mist. As such, sunlight never breaks through, and all kinds of monsters now infest the area.
