    I found a thing in Mount Zhayolm

    On the south end of the mountain, there's a rock with a strange crest that "does not respond" when examined. It sits directly across from the unnamed south island shown on the Mount Zhayolm map. This island, shown in the distance, seems to have a similar stone like the one next to me.

    Has anyone used this thing or is it just another content placeholder like Alzadaal Undersea Ruins?

    My guess is that it'll come into play in a later patch.

    And speaking of Alzadaal, I wonder when we'll finally get the new Nyzul Isle assault area.

    That's at the Eruca/Wootzshell camp, right? I remember trying to feed it various items, it didn't respond.

    Another thing: Can you get to Hediva or Sharug yet?

    There is another stone in the woodlands. Probably one in the mire somewhere too.

    I’ve run across the one on Zhayholm and the one  in Wajaom, but I’m pretty confident that there i sn’t one anywhere in the Mire.  This kind of thi ng is interesting, but there’s no guarantees tha t anything will ever come of it.  There’s a coup le of places that look like zones in Zi’tah and  La Theine、but obviously nothing has ever been done with them. Or that blocked off hallway in Tavnazian Safehold.

    my bet is porters to Alexander, which is spoken about repeatedly by NPCs (although unnamed or named by an near east type name) as a castle of Light across the Volcano in fact if i remember right you can even see it from somewhere in Mount.

    For some reason, reading this made me feel like a robot.

    This looks Alexandered.
    I can tell from some of the towers and having seen quite a few Alexanders in my time.

    However, these tower clusters appear scattered throughout the Silver Sea, which leads me to believe that either Alexander is e-fucking-normous (spanning the entire Silver Sea floor) and the towers are just tips of a collosal, mechanized iceberg or these are several "mini-Alexanders" that are not contiguous parts.

    Whatever the case, I think SE knew that "Alzadaal" wouldn't fool any FF fan for very long.

    Probably a porter to an Ouryu-type fight?

    You should have an operation done to get metal legs.

    Chances are those buildings are the remnants. You see them on the boat and if you look at the boat path, it passes through Bhaflau and Silver Sea remnants. And the building off the southern coast of the island with the Dahaks is the exact same place Zhaylom Remnants appear on the beseiged map.

    I think those stones will probably end up being just some mission to click on and fight something or just maybe a cs.

    I hate to eat up someone's photobucket but if you compare...

    http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...h_img_0055.jpg

    The similarities are uncanny. Front to columns on the ruins versus the front to columns in the painting.

    Compare to

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PU4XhTGZqRQ

    And more importantly

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQIR57joObM

    But onto the OP, what was the stone called?

    Aye I was about to post the SC I took of the plaque looking thing

    That FF9 Video might just be enough to make me replace 9, I quit most FF's after the big plot twist where everyone finds out they're an alien/clone/orphan-from--the-same-orphanage/living-someone-slses-life

    After I found otu Zidane or w/e was like a clone or some shit I was like "...yeah" and turned off my PS2, never turned it back on lol

    but yeah, Alexander is gonna he awsome~ I recon maybe the Gordeus will be part of this too

    Perhaps the crest with tele you to island across the water. There seems to be a similar rock formation on the other side which could link the two areas.

    That's not my picture, that was from an older thread about the last update. I would lose my mind if I saw my PoL message flashing like that all the time.
