Maelstrom 9 is a sea route on a bay connecting Route 10 and Kepler City that includes a massive oceanic basin that the player is able to explore once they obtain the Scuba Gear. It is also home to the Abyssal Base.

After obtaining the power to Dive

  • Dive in the center of Maelstrom 9 and then head southeast to reach the Abyssal Base.

Damian's request

  • Shortly after completing the Damian Quest in the Dream Realm, the Holon Quest plot line, and the Taen Quest plot line, Damian will contact the player and ask them to help him investigate a particularly powerful storm taking place in Maelstrom 9.
  • As nothing can be found on the water's surface, dive down and proceed to the Abyssal Base.
