Basic Information

Position after exiting Ant Hell

Connous Underground Maze, also known as Ant Hell or Ant Pit, is a cavern-like area underneath Connous. Falling into quicksand in the Longa Desert will bring the player randomly to one of five drop points in the underground maze.

The Connous underground maze's opening is found via L-Rod Exploration. Instead of revealing an artifact after a successful exploration, a smoke cloud will appear along with a message "I think I will fall if I stay..." If you stay near cloud for a few seconds, you will fall into the underground maze. You can avoid entering the maze by avoiding the cloud. Sometimes the Land Maker action is required during the exploration stage.

These openings can be found south of Filia in the Longa Desert, primarily south of the oasis.

When leaving the underground maze, you will end up in Errans Canyon, near the Mana Tunnel.

Getting out of the Underground Maze

The exit can be difficult to find, but the way to the underground lake is fairly straight-forward if you zoom your map all the way out and use it to help you chose the path that moves towards the center. The floor will turn orange when you get close to the lake. After that, the floor will turn blue, and you should be able to see the lake from there.

If you get stuck, there are alternative ways of escaping. They include:

  • Using the "Continent Warp" feature.
  • Using Goddess Wings and/or Waxen Wings, which sometimes drop from the monsters.
  • Letting the monsters kill you. However, be warned that you will lose exp and possibly one or more of your equipments (if they are not blessed).

Cave Info


Monsters Present
See Detailed Maps for precise locations of the harder monsters.


Various Collectables Uncovered by L-Rod Exploration
Recommended to not kill off the few initial Monsters while planning to L-Rod as this will cause more monsters to spawn.
The list below gives the items that can be gathered from the collection sites (ore deposits and herb patches) uncovered by L-Rod Exploration.

Unlike Solea Underground, collectibles in Connous Underground can be found along corridors as well as in the rooms.


Holes

  • Marked as "An underground tunnel that leads to somewhere".
  • These are set locations that will warp you to another set location, should you choose to go in them.
    • Note that these holes are one-way.
  • Always goes from a cave region behind the Glowing Doors to a cave region outside of them.
  • See the Detailed Map for more information.

Doors

  • Leads to areas where Desert Ghosts spawn
  • Has glowing runes of blue, white, or tan; does not open automatically
  • For Blue Doors you usually need to say the command after the name. For example, when you click on it, it tells you to say "open sesame!" However when you shout it, it asks for Ruairi's name. If you say "Ruairi!" then "open sesame!" the door will open.
  • Usually have a requirement
  • Still needs more data to confirm how to open the white doors.
  • More variety of colors/requirements than Solea cave doors.
  • Requirement changes every 8 game hours.

(in response to Test! or Open Sesame!) I think the door will open if I just shout the name of the man who only reveals himself on the nights of Sid Sneata[sic]. Say "Tarlach!" If it doesn't open, repeat until the door opens. Saying "Open!" also sometimes works.
(in response to Test! or Open Sesame!) I think the door will open if I just should the name of the person who's been sending me a birthday gift year after year. Say "Nao!" (does not always work)
(in response to Test! or Open Sesame!) I think the door will open if I just shout the name of the old war hero who'd disappeared with Cromm-Cruaich. Say "Ruairi!"
(in response to Open!) I think the door will open if I just shout on old incantation I heard as a child. Say "ala kazam!!" Note that any phrase ending in "!" will get a system response at this point. Some report success by just saying "Open!." If that fails just keep yelling at the door and it will eventually change to one of the ones that have been confirmed. One report claims to have opened this response with "Open Sesame!!".
I think the door will open if I just solemnly train myself.
