Al Bhed riddles in the Calm Lands... *very minor spoilers*

#1SquareFanaticPosted 8/18/2011 2:25:34 PM
I've read the walkthrus so I know what it leads to, but I am curious about the actual locations themselves. I found the riddle in the Mi'ihen Highroad and figured out it mean the Calm Lands.

That part was easy. But now finding the "thorn" and looking across the vale to the other side has me a bit stumped. Which thorn is it referring to and where am I supposed to look? I think I tried them all, but obviously I am missing something.
Has anyone ever put up a map of these? I am feeling a bit desperate.

I think I know what that one is referring to... you'll need to play one of the chocobo games first (and maybe win one? idk).

Naw. It is referring to a riddle which eventually leads to one of the passwords for the airship. Incidentally, I found the password just by searching the grounds madly for the thorn. But I know I missed a couple of steps. I am just curious what those steps were and if anyone can show me a map or tell me which thorn the Mi'ihen clue is referring to.

The gorge is pretty much the upper section of the Calm Lands. And there are several "thorns".

IIRC it's the one near Svanda (I think she's the blitz player looking at the Gorge).
