Makara ruins op

Crystals decorate the floral fields of the ruins

"Rare ruins still retaining shape. A portal to a distant place is said to be here."
— Quest counter description

The Makara Ruins (Japanese: 洞窟遺跡マカラ) is an area in Phantasy Star Zero.

General Data

The Makara Ruins is an ancient network of caves embellished by giant, blue crystals protruding from the many bright, pink floral fields that line its halls. Upon closer inspection, the crystals appear to have an ancient language chiseled onto them.

Local Monsters

The monsters residing in the ruins are native to the area, and are thus a mixture between native and beast classification.

Similar to the Rioh Snowfield, the Makara Ruins does not have a traditional boss monster in the final area. Instead, the player finds themself surrounded by an aggressive pack of Rohjade.

Normal Hostiles

Rare Variants


There are several missions that can be undertaken by the player at the Hunter's Guild quest counter. Certain quests grant the player rewards for beating them on specific difficulties.

Message Packs

Message packs are mysterious messages found on the field that were left behind by unknown hunters. Many of the tutorial messages and LMA reports appear to be from the same person. Messages commonly appear after clearing dead-end rooms or around special areas such as the arena.
