We all know Escape. No doubt this little spell has helped you and your party out on many occasions. But this spell can't be cast in every area. So, in what areas can Escape be useful to prevent an entire party from a need to get raised? And when can Escape be used to take a shortcut through an area? This was a question I found at the discussion page of Escape, and since I couldn't find one, I made one.

There are some Escape areas I tried out, and some I knew by heart. But there are some areas that still need to be tested. Some of them I can't reach yet, so their destinations might not be accurate. If you spot any mistakes, feel free to contact me, or edit this guide.
