Final Fantasy IX Mognet Central
The "Chocobo Hot and Cold" game, along with all the treasure hunting it entails,
is by far the most complex side quest in FINAL FANTASY IX. Yet completing the
side quest and getting the gold Choco is essential to unlocking so many other
side quests. One such quest that depends on the gold Choco is the revival of
On your way through Esto Gaza to Mount Gulug, delivering a letter to Mogrika the
moogle causes her to indicate that Mognet is shutting down because of an
accident. From this point on, most of the moogles will not have any letters to
deliver and won't ask you to deliver any due to problems at the home office,
You can reach Mognet Central with a light-blue chocobo (REEF chocobo) on Disc 3.
On the east side of this island, you can find a crack in the mountain. Feed
Choco a Dead Pepper to make him open the crack, revealing Mognet Central.
Inside, the moogle Artemicion confesses that he used too much of a certain
"thing" to make his fur glossy, and there wasn't enough left to use on the
machine that keeps Mognet running. Leave Mognet Central and travel south to
Alexandria. Then speak to Kupo at the bell tower ruins, and he'll give you a
letter to Atla. Thus begins a chain of letters that MUST be delivered from
moogle to moogle in order to revive the Mognet. Although the moogles tell you
which moogle to deliver to, they don't mention where that moogle is located!
|Kupo Nut Overflow
Each time you deliver a letter during this sequence, the moogles give you
Kupo Nuts if you don't already have one in your Key Items inventory. Return
to the moogle family at Gizamaluke's Grotto each time you get one, and
exchange each Kupo Nut for an item. By the time you're through, there should
be four or five new little moogles running around!
Atla is the moogle at Burmecia. Return there now and deliver the letter. Atla
wants you to take a letter to Mogryo, the moogle standing outside the chocobo
farm at the Black Mage Village. Mogryo has a letter for Kumool. Return to
Ipsen's Castle and exchange letters with Kumool in the courtyard. You receive a
letter for Mois, the moogle from the Ice Cavern, in return.
However, the Ice Cavern is now blocked by roots that have grown over each
entrance. Mois has moved to Qu's Marsh on the Mist Continent, and now stands
outside the former entrance to Fossil Roo. Make sure you have Quina in your
party, or else you won't have access to Fossil Roo. Mois has a letter for Noggy,
the moogle at Daguerreo. Noggy, in turn, sends you back to Kupo in Alexandria
with a final letter.
When Kupo reads the letter, you'll notice that it says someone in Alexandria has
the item needed. Kupo isn't any help, but we'll save you the trouble!
Talk to Ruby in the Alexandria Mini-Theater, and she immediately hands over some
of her hair gel, otherwise known as Superslick. Return to Mognet Central and
turn over the item to Artemicion. The Mognet gets back to business, and you
receive a Protect Ring for helping restore Mognet.
