In first half of
the game, Final Fantasy XII, fifth act, after you visit Eruyt village in Vierra
land, you are asked to find a Viera in the Henne Mines. Akin to other
assignments in Final Fantast XII: The Zodiac Age, finding the location of Henne
Mines is difficult the first time around.
The road to Henne
Mines in Final Fantasy: XII is impossible to find on foot. The only way is to
get a Chocobo. There are two ways of getting a Choboco, one is to rent one from
the stables at the entrance of Jahara village. Another way is to borrow a
Choboco from Imperial Soldiers outside the Golmore Jungle. If you have a few
hundred Gil to spare and are pressed for time, renting a Choboco is a good
option. If you don’t mind a little exploring and want to hold onto your Gil,
then you can borrow a Choboco from the Imperial soldiers for some potion.
Below are both ways
of getting to Henne Mines in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
In the Ozmone
plain, you’ll find Field of Fallen Wings, head south from there to the
Switchback. Be wary of enemies flying in to attack you. Best way to beat them
is with magic or ranged attacks. When keeping to the left edge, you’ll find an
exit north from where you will be able to go to Haulo Green.
As you keep going
south, you’ll come across a neutral Garif. He can assist you in fights and this
is a good place to level up killing re-spawning Vipers without much damage.
Once you’ve had enough head through the exit due west to Jahara village.
After the cutscene,
Larsa will rejoin you. You are now ready to head over to Henne Mines but this
is also a good time to do some Marks with Larsa by your side, as he is a great
healer and this will help you level up a bit more. You can simply rent a
Choboco from the Choboco stables in front of the entrance gate to Jahara
village. Renting a Chocobo here is quite cheap and will let you carry on your
mission in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age without wasting time.
Once you have a
Choboco, head over to Ozmone Plain by retracing your steps from the Switchback
to Dragan Flats to Field of Light Winds and onto the Sunlit Path. Make your way
to Golmore Jungle from there.
If you haven’t
rented a Choboco from the Choboco stables at the entrance of Jahara village to
save on your Gil or because you forgot, don’t worry. You
don’t need to redo the entire journey; instead you can borrow one from here. There
are two Imperial soldiers at the entrance of Golmore Jungle, talk to them, they
might ask you for some potion and in return will lend you a Chocobo. Once on
the Chocobo, head west towards the field of Light Winds. Keep towards the
western edge here near the tall grass. Like I said before, this grass is
impossible to cross on foot but here you will see Chocobo tracks going into the
grass. Follow the tracks through the tall grass and you’ll reach the entrance.
