That damned Mountain! COP Mission 3-3 / Guide to Climbing Attohwa Chasm Mountain


Published December 18, 2018

Continuing our journey in FFXI and going through all of the various mission Final Fantasy XI has to offer.  This particular video covers Chains of Promathia (COP) Mission 3-3B (Windurst Route) that involves scaling the mountain in the East side of Attohwa Chasm.  Once you receive the Mimeo Jewel and have to run up the mountain before it's light fades (and you have to do the quest over again..).  There is no jumping in FFXI so you have to go through a stupid path up the mountain falling off ledges until you get to the top. You have to get to the top within 1 real life hour and not use any exploits (including using a Nexus Cape..).  It was as annoying as I remember!

Video recorded this on December 12, 2018.

This video is part of a continuing series of videos of our journey back to Vanadiel after a 9 year break.  My husband and I were unable to recover our old accounts so we went ahead and started with brand new characters late September, 2018.  This footage is from the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) called Final Fantasy XI.
