Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Yzana Plains

By
Jarrod Garripoli

Information on the Yzana Plains location of the Aetia Region.

The Yzana Plains section of the Aetia Region

The Yzana Plains is the second location you will come upon when you start the game, and it is the home of Colony 9, which is the home of Noah, Eunie, and Lanz. It is also where you will first encounter Elite and Unique Enemies, so you will want to be a little careful when exploring the surrounding areas. Despite being one of the bigger areas in the Aetia Region, there’s not much to do there, especially at the beginning of the game, where you’re locked out from exploring some of the more dangerous areas. Note that once you complete Chapter 1, you will locked out of most of the Yzana Plains, but will be allowed to return there later on in the game.
