    4-man gate in the depths of Halvung

    Took a few hours to run through Halvung/Zhayolm to familiarize myself with the area, got my plate for the Gates of Halvung, et cetera.

    I ended up taking a journey down into the depths where all the trolls are true-sight. Eventually, after dodging aggro for an hour solid and slowly inching forward, I came to one of those troll-gates that takes 4 ppl to open. And I was really interested in what was on the other side, it looks like there's an exit of some sort really close...

    Has anyone else been there? Here's a map of my path:

    me and 3 other of my friends opened up this gate in halvung as the 4 of us. it leads to some area with Pot Hatches which someone mentioned in some other thread that that is where the Besieged prisoners will probably be kept. Further ahead you will arrive at Mount Zhayolm, near Cerberus.

    I went there yesterday morning myself Aurik (even found an Archaic Mirror along the way), if you want to run back there at some point I'd be more than glad to come along. Expansion has been very nice on my buffer so dying a few times on the way won't bother me.

    Please invite me? Sounds like an excellent adventure!

    Each new beastman stronghold has an area like this where the mobs become truesite and there are lots of prison cells that need keys to open. Once besieged occurs, we will have to go down there to rescue captured NPC's. Also, the Astral Candesesence looks to be held at K-10 on the that Halvung map. It is heavlily guarded by 6 VT red dragon type mobs (same ones that are in the mountain).

    I went exploring there also, Aurik. Unfortunately, I wasn't so patient with aggro and had to run through without stopping to explore past the trolls. I ended up in the same room as you, though, and really want to get past.

    Also, I ended up in Bhaflau Thickets where you show on the map as well, and there is a drop you can't go up. I was thinking that there might be a zone somewhere on the Halvung map there to get out onto the upper parts of the Thickets. Unfortunately, I don't think it's used yet? Regardless, I'm going up there with an exp party of 6 tonight, so I'll make sure to do some exploring beyond these gates.

    Actually the Astral Candesence isn't held in a physical location in the event that the Beastmen capture it, or at least, you can't retrieve it through there. You have to do an instanced 6-man battle in which the mobs do not recover HP even if you wipe (Which leads me to believe that it isn't meant to be won by the first group that goes in).

    If I had to guess, I would say that players won't even be able to see the Astral Candesence until it is either taken (During which I bet its just a CS that gives you a small glimpse or something if you retrieve it) or through a later Mission.

    You still have to get to the fighting grounds, which I'm sure is what Kainen-Hades meant.

    While exploring past the Gates of Halvung i was around C-7 i believe and i zoned into a different area called Navukgo Execution Chamber. Only thing i found in the zone was the Decorative gate(?) other than that the zone seems rather useless. Anyone ever been here or know what this zone is for?

    Unless the unlabled SE exit of Halvung past the lever leads to the upper part, and the exit that you can get to without passing the lever leads to the lower part.

    I made it to (G-7) on the Halvung map, thats where I encountered the first truesight Trolls, I didn't even think of dropping down at (H-7). Are there more true sight mobs after that drop? and how do you open those doors, do you need 4 people to hit the switch at the same time?

    Also, that execution chamber is a BC area

    Went there last friday, im pretty sure that gate did take 6 ppl to open, deffinitely more than 4. (maybe 8 not sure, we had 8.) Behind was just some locked door, looks like its for a future mission or something.

    Yeah, that room I was talking about with the 6 dragons has a currently untargettable door. Maybe that door will be to get to the BC type area.

    We trio'd it...

    MNK/WHM (me, so I could sneak myself)
    NIN/RDM (Tortle, so he could Dispel roaches and sneak himself)
    WHM/BLM (Athena, so she could escape us... >.>)

    I got a new asshole torn around 20%. The NIN and WHM finished it off.

    I've walked in front of them a few times now with no aggro (maybe was all same time of day)

    Is it possible you had low hp and they [Detect by smell]?
