Nine Ivies


Nine Ivies (ナインアイビー [nine ivies] in Japanese) is an area in the east Shroud in Final Fantasy XIV. It is one of the few bastions of human presence in the east Shroud traditionally, as most areas are stalked by sylphs. Nine Ivies is located quite centrally in the region, with Bramble Patch (/Verdant Drop) to the north, Larkscall to the east beyond the Springripple Brook, and Honey Yard to the west (starting with version 2.0, Honey Yard used to be an area in eastern Nine Ivies before that). To the north-west used to be Lynxpelt Patch, but the area has been inaccessible starting with version 2.0. Also starting with version 2.0 the Mun-Tuy Cellars were retconned to be on the border between east and south Shrouds, and as such now functions as a connection point between Nine Ivies and Silent Arbor.

In central Nine Ivies is the Hawthorne Hut, and in the east right by the Springripple Brook is the sylvan settlement of Little Solace. Before the Calamity, Camp Nine Ivies was separate from the Hawthorne Hut, but afterwards the new aetheryte was placed at the Hut, making that the main hub of all activity in the area. The Garlean Empire has also been making inroads into the Shroud since their conquering of Ala Mhigo some twenty years past, and have erected the Baelsar's Wall and the Castrum Oriens in the south-east of Nine Ivies.


Amarissaix's Spire

Amarissaix's Spire (アマリセ監視哨 [amarissaix kanshishou] or 'amarissaix observation post' in Japanese) is a watchtower built in recent years in the south-west of Nine Ivies, to keep an eye on Garlean activity on Baelsar's Wall and Castrum Oriens. As Gridania's newest watchtower, it was named after Amarissaix, a Gods' Quiver officer who perished at the Battle of Carteneau.

The Hedgetree

The Hedgetree (境樹 [kyoju] or 'border tree' in Japanese) is one of those that stand all throughout the Black Shroud and carry the burden of the Hedge that protects the Shroud from outsiders.

Josselin's Spire

Josselin's Spire (ジョスラン監視哨 [josselin kanshishou] or 'josselin observation post' in Japanese) is a watchtower built on a cliff right behind the Hawthorne Hut. It was named after Josselin, a legendary Wood Wailers captain, and is these days manned by both Wailers and the Gods' Quiver.

Toro-Moy Battlewarrens

Not much at all is known about the area. It is known to be a cave complex related to an important battle in Gridania's past, but that is about it. In version 1.x, it was located in a cave system right by Hawthorne Hut, but it bears noting that the location of the Hut was retconned for version 2.0+.
