Previous Area: Sanctum
Next Area: Undercity West

The west side of Leá Monde's heart is almost empty when Ashley first visits; visiting one location here and another in the First Abandoned Mines triggers enough spawns of Crimson Blades to fill it almost completely with tag-teams of slow-spell-casting heavily armored humans. But of course well armored also means good armor drops.

Players that are tempted by the loot in the west should consider waiting to farm until Ashley reaches the Southern Town Center, where the best middle-tier armor in the form of Gauntlets and Segmentata replaces the sucky Knuckles and Chain Mail of the new western spawns.

Rue Vermillion

  • Magic Circle (Save and later, Teleport)

The cutscene upon entering Rue Vermillion from Sanctum introduces the player to Leá Monde's streets, and the Crimson Blades that, besieged by the same necromantically summoned forces of the Dark that Ashley has been fighting, still maintain a tenuous hold on them.

During the cutscene and when it finishes, the player gets the first glimpses of the quake-ravaged stone paths and ubiquitous rushing rivers of Leá Monde. The cries of birds both carnivorous and herbivorous echo off its golden limestone walls when the cries of battle die down and the bodies of the fallen are taken by the Dark.

Players are advised to not go to Tircolas Flow until they have at least saved the game. See notes for Workshop "Magic Hammer" and Tircolas Flow for details.

Doorway south to Tircolas Flow. Doorway east to The Rene Coastroad. Doorway to Stairway to the Light in the Sanctum. Doorway west to City Walls West, locked with the Crimson Key, which is obtained in the upcoming "boss" fight.

Door west to Rue Vermillion. Door south into Workshop "Magic Hammer". Door west to Rue Mal Fallde.

Workshop "Magic Hammer"

BRONZE and IRON can be combined here.

A good Edged weapon with more Human affinity than others is a must, for an upcoming "Congratulations!" battle. It might even be worth a trip back to the Blackmarket of Wines in the Wine Cellar, to level up such a blade. There are no Human enemies on which to do so, before this blade will be needed.

Magic Hammer is the first opportunity to make HAGANE items from BRONZE and IRON of the same weapon Design or armor Equipment; combining different designs or equipments will almost always make the lesser material. Combining Hagane items is not available until the next workshop.

The potential benefits of Affinities and Class are much greater than material or tier, so it is recommended that players not discard used armor or weapons; there will always be a way to combine them with other pieces into better armor, later on.

Careful blacksmiths will receive a mostly aesthetic but minor reward from a little preparation before combining their BRONZE and IRON items; Bronze and Iron do not naturally combine well with respects to Affinities. Unfortunately, they will have to wait for it, as the Terra Guard Enchantment Grimoire Rempart is obtained a little later in the Abandoned Mines; raising Earth Affinity just one point saves two additional points when combining Bronze and Iron armor. Grimoire Gnome, obtained later still from the Snowfly Forest, soon before the next workshop, gives Soil Fusion, and saves three points on weapons.

Since the secondary utility of combining is to obtain Affinity without spending time beating on Training Dummies, getting numbers out of the red and into the black can mean saving time. And in the case of armor, it can be well be worth doing at any time there is spare Magic Points; it can be quite intimidating to see the red numbers indicating loss of Affinities rolling up the screen, but persevere with the use of armor and weapon Enchantments and more blue gains will be seen overall. Warlock spells raise affinities even faster, albeit with the obvious drawbacks.

Rue Mal Fallde

There is a cutscene to view here before the events at Tircolas Flow, but passage to Tircolas Flow through this area from The Rene Coastroad will be blocked. Ashley, wary of engaging Crimson Blades, will have to retreat to The Rene Coastroad.

Tircolas Flow

  • Cutscene. Father Duane interrogates a prisoner, who dies of his injuries. His body dissolves in a swarm of glowing lights. Romeo Guildenstern and Samantha approach, and discuss with Duane the Dark's hold over the dead.
YouTube video: Incomplete death

Father Duane attacks with his guards, Sarjik and Bejart.
For their full stats, see Entities: Humans
They are fully armored; often these guides show only the items with a chance to drop, but Duane's armor is a little unusual, and knowledge of it or the lack thereof could affect what is renowned as being a tough battle.[1] The main reason is that the player has encountered only six weak Humans up to this point, none of which respawn, giving little opportunity to gain Human Class on weapons. Many Dragon class enemies, and a Dragon boss have been encountered, giving ample opportunity to erase any Human gains while like many bosses, he has Chain Evade; his is unusually high,[1] with three out of four attack chains failing completely. Magic used against him is weakened by his LEATHER armor, and the fact that the single-target magic spells available at this stage in the game are Blunt Type.[1]

Guildenstern and Samantha study the ancient Kildean script on the walls of the buildings here and make to move on, when they are confronted in Villeport Way by Sydney's sudden visitation. He might be sending them an illusion of himself, but when Guildenstern does just that, moving to within striking range of Sydney, the latter moves to evade, so it is likely he had teleported and was present in person.
