- Previous Area: The Keep
- Next Objective: Dining in Darkness via Bandit's Hollow
- Optional Paths: Undercity West or Second Abandoned Mines
As regards navigation and the main storyline, Ashley's objective, when he first arrives in this area, is to get to Bandit's Hollow. There is a short path through City Walls East and Undercity West (South Side), and a long way, under pressure of a two-minute timer, through Abandoned Mines B2. Abandoned Mines is completely optional and there is only one thing standing in the way of going and getting powerful and coming back and slapping the Orcs silly other than any need for a challenge a player might prefer. The one thing is the Dark Elemental Phantom that waits in Fear of the Fall; Soul Kiss may be a good solution.
The Town Center itself is a big area, with lots of rooftops to leap across. Good practice for running past things without engaging them in battle.

HAGANE Tabarzin + Czekan Type grip 26/255, IRON Quad Shield + Gnome Emerald gem 26/255, Vera Root 32/255
The Gnome Emerald on the Quad shield worn by the Hierwind type Crimson Blade in Rue Aliano is notable for many reasons:
- Ashley does not possess one at this stage in the game
- It has a higher drop rate than the numerous ones in Abandoned Mines B2
- It may be desirable to attach to a weapon against the upcoming Sky Dragon. In a shield, it will defend against the Earth Elemental in Abandone Mines B2. It is useful for both defense against the Orc Leader's Soil Fusion and, on weapons, against Orcs in general.
- It is not enough of a boost to Earth Affinity to reverse the the Air based Hierwind's affinity.
