- It is reached via the Teleport-Holla crag entrance to Al'Taieu.
- Cosmo-Cleanse and White Card are required for entry.
- All monsters in this area use their job's 1-hour ability.
- You can only open one chest per level. The chests spawn in random places. There is no set spot for either chest, and all of them can load in any of the three positions.
- Most floors have 2 groups of mobs:
- Killing any one of the first group unlocks the gate.
- Killing all of the second group spawns all 3 chests.
- The Time chest is blue, and gives an additional 15 minutes. (Not 5 minutes as indicated on the maps.)
- The Item chest is brown with gold trim, and on the lower 6 levels all have 4-7 Ancient Beastcoins and 0-2 AF+1 items.
- The Restore chest is brown with silver trim, and refills HP/MP and restores all timers.
- It is possible to win with fewer Time chests if you skip some mobs and go straight for the chest dropper.
- Typical Ancient Beastcoin yield: 50
- Drops AF+1 materials for: BLM, BLU, COR, DNC, DRG, DRK, MNK, NIN, PLD, RNG, SCH, SMN, THF, WAR, WHM.

- Kindred Summoner
- Kindred Warrior
- Kindred Dark Knight
- About 4/7 drop an Ancient Beastcoin
- The three unique demons are lined up in the center of the room; DRK in front (west), then WAR, then SMN.
- You can not pull from the back to prevent linking, so Sleepga all mobs and kill the SMN last.
- You can pull the BLMs without linking the DRK, WAR, and SMN.
- The chests appear in the middle of the room.
- You just need to kill the center 3 to pop the chests.
- One of the Black Mages will open the door.

- Cryptonberry Designator x3 (SMN) (wandering)
- Cryptonberry Abductor x3 (THF) (wandering)
- There are two sets of SMN and THF in linked pairs near the doorways. A single THF and a single SMN walk alone between rooms.
- Cryptonberry Charmer (BLM) (NW)
- Cryptonberry Skulker (NIN) (NE)
- About 7/8 drop an Ancient Beastcoin
- The Cryptonberry Skulker and/or the Cryptonberry Charmer in the NE corner drops the chests.
- The easiest way to complete this floor is to run down the first ramp when the SMN + THF pair moves away and kill the Cryptonberry Charmer (BLM). Then the lone Cryptonberry Abductor should be pulled and killed when it's close to the alliance. Afterwards, the alliance should move to the other side of the area when the Cryptonberry Designator moves away and kill the Cryptonberry Skulker. The last Tonberry pair can be slept while the alliance proceeds to the next floor.
- 1-2 AF+1 items: NIN, MNK, PLD, WHM, DRG, WAR, BLM, RNG, SCH
- Goblin Theurgist x2 (BLM)
- Goblin Fencer x2 (RDM)
- Goblin Warlord (DRK)
- All drop 1-2 Ancient Beastcoins
- Cannot pull from the side without linking all the others.
- Can be pet pulled, though as always this can fail if the mob stops to cast before chasing you, giving the others time to link.
- One way to avoid all casting on pulls is to pull a mob right after it casts a buff spell.
- A way to avoid casting of an offensive spell on the pull is to run away after sending in your pet so that you are out of casting range when your pet is gone. This doesn't work as well with RDM, since RDM has more buff spells.
- The final chest appears in the middle of the room when all the goblins are defeated.
- AF+1 item: DRG, MNK, THF, WHM, NIN, COR, SCH ?
