As the name would suggest, Nine Ivies is known for the many species of ivy found in the area. The Order of the Twin Adder have increased their presence in the area, keeping watch for both encroaching sylphs and Garlean forces.
— In-game description
Built in haste to monitor the Garlean forces who recently marched on the Twelveswood from the northeast, Amarissaix'a Spire is Gridania's newest watchtower. It takes its name from a leader of the Gold Bulls, who perished in the Battle of Carteneau after valiantly engaging the imperial army.
Behind this Garlean outpost stands Baelsar's Wall, and behind that lies Gyr Abania - a region of the imperially occupied Ala Mhigo.
Both Wood Wailers and Gods' Quiver are stationed in this strategically located watchtower, named for a legendary captain of the Wailers.
Little is the solace granted to those sylphs who would voice their opposition to the summoning of the Lord of Levin. Little is the solace bequeathed upon those who would abandon their homes in the Sylphlands and shun their frenzied brethren. Thus, it is only through fraternity that those sylphs may ultimately find solace, however little it may be.
