Final Fantasy Compendium

Unlike most other games, most of the places in FFTA2 have very little bearing on what happens in them. Locations of missions seem to be chosen more or less at random. Unless otherwise indicated, the description of each place is simply that provided by the game. In fact many of the "challenge" type missions take place somewhere but don't even use that location's battle map. Each area has several locations inside it, usually including one named after the area.

Aisenfield
The legend of the Thirteen was born long ago on this sweeping plain that time forgot.
  • Aisenfield: This peaceful green field unfolds as far as the eye can see, a sight unchanging through the ages.
  • Nazan Highroad: This road leads northeast to the Nazan Mines. Few pass this way since they closed.
  • Tramdine Trail: This trail leads north to Tramdine Fens. Chocobos that take fright easily make for ill mounts in the bleak swampland ahead.
  • Fluorgis Highroad: This road leads northwest to Fluorgis. Bards can often be heard reciting their latest verses, refining them as they approach the city.
  • Neslowe Highroad: This road leads to the Neslowe Passage. The bridge here spanning the narrow sea is only open by day.
  • Kthili Highroad: This road leads east to Kthili Sands. At this distance the great desert dunes seem only hills.
  • Field of the Fallen: Grass sways in undulating waves across the verdant expanse. The Thirteen are said to have fought a great battle here.
  • The Ligress Headland: Warm winds sweep across this rocky highland. Below, the Mirhelian Sea stretches to the horizon.
  • Gaol's March: This road was built to honor the hero Gaol, one of the Thirteen Knights of Aisen.

Aldanna Range
Rugged highland with row upon row of soaring peaks. Hardy mountain shrubs grow among its crags and clefts.
  • The Aldanna Range: Icy winds and magicked Mist swirl through these mountain peaks. Many fierce beasts make their home among the rocky crags.
  • Zedlei Highroad: This road leads north to Zedlei Forest. Travelers' feet move with hushed whispers through the soft carpet of fallen leaves.
  • Baptiste Highroad: This road leads east to Baptiste Hill. There is little vegetation to break the monotony of the desolate trail.
  • Galerria Highroad: This road leads to the caves of the Galerria Deep. Footing is tracherous on the dark, uneven path.
  • Lezaford's Cottage: This old cottage is nestled deep in the mountains. The trail leading here bears little sign of traffic.
    You can rest here to turn time forward by one or more months. Later you can also reach Zellea from here.
  • Orchise Snowfields: The ground here is dusted white with snow, broken only by the occasional track of some unseen animal.
  • Whitesnow Pass: This frozen pass lies under a perpetual blanket of snow that shines a ghostly silver in the moonlight.
  • Redclay Pass: The smooth clay along this trail can be perilously slipper. Occasionally, a thin Mist hangs in the air.

Baptiste Hill
Green grasses cover the gently sloping hillside. A refreshing wind eases the burdens of passing travelers.
  • Baptiste Hill: Lush grasses carpet the hillside. Caravans mark the progress of their journey as they pass the solitary tree.
  • Aldanna Highroad: This road leads west to the Aldanna Range. The loose soil littering the path slows even the most sure-footed of wayfarers.

  • The Boulderfall: The many rocks jutting from this low-lying mountain make it a popular proving ground for adventurers with more lofty ambitions.
  • Flutegrass Bluff: A cool breeze blows in from the coast. On clear days it's possible to make out the continent across the narrow sea.

Bigsa Greenlands
Thick vegetation grows across this broad plain. Many travelers pass along its extensive network of roads.
  • Camoa Highroad: This road leads east to Camoa. Passing storms often leave the road rutted and cut across with pools of water.
  • Graszton Highroad: This busy road leads south to Graszton. Even late at night the steady stream of travelers does not abate.
  • Galerria Highroad: This road leads west to the caves of the Galerria Deep. Even here, the ground is cold and damp.
  • Baptiste Highroad: This road leads north to Baptiste Hill. The greater part of the travelers here can be seen astride chocobos.
  • The Bigsa Greenlands: Bright, open fields stretch to the horizon. As the sun falls, monsters creep out of the rising gloom.
  • Vieg Northroad: The Vieg Highroad is one of the region's busiest corridors. It is not uncommon to find stalls and tents offering sundry goods to passersby.
  • Caravan Trail: A trail cut into the side of a steep cliff. Travelers on chocoboback carefully pick their way along the incline.
  • Jadewood: Tall trees blot out the light in the deep recesses of this forest. The air is heavy with moisture from hidden pools and lush greenery.

Camoa
Camoa is a famed gathering spot for adventurers. The countryside surrounding the city is a verdant patchwork of crops and pastureland.
  • Camoa: This ancient city has long been a favorite gathering spot for adventurers. Throngs of people bustle along its streets.
  • Bigsa Highroad: This road leads west to the Bigsa Greenlands. A sea of emerald grass glimmers on either side.
  • Baptiste Highroad: This road climbs gradually north toward Baptiste Hill.
  • Adventurer's Rest: Soft breezes caress this gently rolling grassland. An idyllic resting spot for the footsore adventurer.
  • Shaug Tablelands: This high plateau offers a spendid view of Camoa. Take care should the weather turn foul: the paths here can be treacherous in the rain.
  • Dias Plain: Narrow paths crisscross this airy plain. The sun-weary traveler will find welcome shelter in the cool shade of the trees.
  • Tulque Grove: Faeries are said to gather beneath the trees of this secluded grove. The sound of rustling leaves is borne upon the breeze.

  • Cannol Keep: Named after the famed gria general, the ruins of this holdfast are the grandest for many leagues.
    Note: The Luck-stick Sellers show up here.

Goug
This island rising from the Mirhelian Sea is home to the moogle city of Goug.
  • Goug: This moogle city is the birthplace of tecknologies found throughout Ivalice. Odd machineries perch on every shelf and peer out from every corner.

  • Aisenfield Highroad: This road leads west to Aisenfield. The going is slow, with the fine sand swallowing foot and wheel alike.
