Tranquil Paths


Tranquil Paths (トランキル・パース [tranquil paths] in Japanese) is an area in the south Shroud in Final Fantasy XIV. It surrounds the Lumberline heading south from Gridania, and is surrounded by Silent Arbor to the north-east. The other areas vary a little. Originally Longroot used to be to the east and Snakemolt to the south-west, but Snakemolt was retconned to be the one located to the east starting in version 2.0. The original Longroot's status is unknown, it can either be to the south-east, in Snakemolt's original location to the south-west, or even removed entirely, there is no way to know. Whatever the case, to the south the Lumberline continues past various grasslands and ends up in Thanalan, to the north it continues directly to Bentbranch in central Shroud. The river Hathoeva runs through the entirety of the area, entering Tranquil Paths somewhere to the north-west and ending at the Rootslake.

In version 1.x, Tranquil Paths was all considered one big area. However, starting with version 2.0 it has been divided into the northern half Upper Paths (アッパーパス [upper paths] in Japanese) and the southern half Lower Paths (ロウアーパス [lower paths] in Japanese). Upper Paths (or what would later be retconned into Upper Paths) includes the Buscarron's Fold settlement (later called Buscarron's Scar after it's abandonment), as well as the entrance to Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak and an entrance to the Palace of the Dead. The local aetheryte camp used to be there until floodwaters washed it away during the Calamity, and it was relocated south to Lower Paths. Quarrymill was considered to be in Tranquil Paths in version 1.x as well, but it was retconned to be in the Silent Arbor area later.

Likewise, Lower Paths included the Rootslake in the eastern parts in version 1.x. It's unclear whether this was retconned or whether the Calamity really wrought so much damage that it now covers almost the entire Lower Paths in one form or another. Either case, Rootslake can now be found in western Lower Paths (possibly as well as its eastern parts). Uncovered by the Calamity in the south-western corner of Rootslake is also an entrance to the lost city of Amdapor, the capital of a civilization that flourished in the Fifth Astral Era, which had been hidden away by the elementals since the Sixth Umbral Era.


Upper Paths

Buscarron's Druthers

The Buscarron's Druthers tavern (酒房「バスカロンドラザーズ」 [shubou "buscarron druthers"] or 'alehouse buscarron druthers' in Japanese) was established by Buscarron Stacks, who owned the Buscarron's Fold when it was still operational. The Druthers is widely known within the Shroud as a place where anyone is welcome as long as they don't bother other patrons.


Issom-Har (イソム・ハーの穴蔵 [issom-har no anagura] or 'issom-har cave' in Japanese) is an opening made by a falling rock during the Calamity in the cave-riddled ground of the Shroud, that leads to the Gelmorran settlement Issom-Har…at the very least, supposedly. Any who have managed to pierce the magical barrier around the place have not been sent anywhere as familiar as Gelmorran ruins however, and instead find themselves in the Palace of the Dead.

No-Man's Hovel

No-Man's Hovel (主なき庵室 [arujinaki anshitsu] or 'masterless hovel' in Japanese) is an abandoned hovel in south-western Upper Paths, off the beaten road. Nobody knows who lived there originally, and the surroundings are often hounded by poachers and bandits in the present day.

Lower Paths

It bears noting that Rootslake is considered a separate area on Chrysalis, even as it is part of Lower Paths in actuality. Please see the page for Rootslake for information on anything present in that area.

South Shroud Landing

The South Shroud Landing (サウスシュラウド・ランディング [south shroud landing] in Japanese) is a landing for cargo airships built by Highwind Skyways in the Sixth Astral Era. It was abandoned when imperial presence in the area grew too great to safely land airships in the area. In the aftermath of the Calamity, it has become a wayside market1 for poachers and bandits.


Note that Rootslake is considered a separate area on Chrysalis despite actually being a part of Lower Paths. Please see Rootslake's page for any relevant info.
