I found a secret area in Kianeng Center (don't know if this is new, but no one ever mentioned it)
right after you beat Shiro, when you're in Divine path, everyone knows you can walk all the way down and see the emperor dancing and whatnot, but I found a portal behind the emperor that zones you into a hidden area of Kaineng.
maybe this ss can give you an idea of where I was...
It was an empty area with nothing but an NPC who gave you an option which says "we have business in the restricted area" (or something like that, which oddly enough sends you back into the normal Kaineng area :/ I was hoping it was a way of getting to divine path w/o having to kill shiro everytime, but oh well.
anyways, just thought it was interesting. It was a part of the Kaineng map that's inaccessable normally, but it wasn't a different area, it was still Kaineng Center, complete with trade spam and everything!
ps sorry for the small pic, photobucket is being stubborn
