are heavily fortified corners of a region which are controlled by the beastmen who inhabit them. They serve as a base for the beastmen as well as a form of defence for their race.
In FFXIV: A Realm Reborn all kinds of beastmen have their own strongholds and they are all in different zones. Players can enter them and fight their way through to boss encountered and gain coffer keys for nice loot.
During the beta players can not enter the strongholds, but once more information is available, such as loot, we will update this page. The beastmen strongholds are as follows:
