Physis is the snowfield north of Rano. It is home to the Giants and many tundra animals. Vales, in central Physis, is hometown to the giants. To get to Physis from Rano, one must first enter the Nubes Mountains and head north through the Solea Caves. Solea is composed of two maze-like caves.
If the snowy wind effects in the region become too blinding, reducing Shadow Effects in the Options Dialog will lower the effect.
Northwest of Vales is the Hillwen Mine. It was recently discovered by the Giants and valuable minerals and stones were found inside the mine. Giants have taken up researching the mines and formed an entire research team, dedicated to find uses of the mine's minerals.
