Koru-Moru wants you to find him a rough black stone, for some spaced-out reason.


Kill rarabs in the Sarutabaruta plains until you receive a Torn Epistle.

Koru-Moru will smell the scent of his love in the letter you are carrying and asks for a rough black stone. Kill crawlers until one drops a Meteorite and then bring it back to Koru-Moru and he will give you a reward.

Not sure how this affects anything, but has anyone tried getting this item while they already had a compound eye circlet? I mean, it seems a bit crazy but most of the tips here work well: between 8th-10th level, crawlers at starfall hillock, at night...but I repeated this quest with a mule, just to get a second circlet and couldn't do it. I was a mithra thf and had no problems, a galka monk, a taru blm and got it every time...but the second I made a elvaan monk with the circlet equipped at 9 and tried it, I was lvl 13 before I finally got it (and then only after I unequipped the circlet), while my other characters were all below 10th and had no problems finding it within their first 10 crawlers around the hill. Any insights?

The Meteor That Fell to Earth and Came Down a Meteorite
Trivia, altho arguably no more so than anything on this whole site:
Confirmed: a solid body is a Meteor while falling to earth, and a Meteorite once it has 'landed' (cue space music woo-o-oo). The suffix -ite, commonly used as a diminutive, in this case classifies it as a mineral, as in Pyrite, Malachite, or Anthracite. Geologists get out of the house more often than astronomers, I guess, so they got to the extraterrestrial rocks first and got to name them.

If you have trouble flagging the quest

I was a rank 10 windurst and a rank 10 sandorian at the time.
I tried to flag it as rank 2 bastokan.
I could NOT flag it, so I attained the torn epistle in my inventory and talked to him again.
I could NOT flag it.
I then turned in the torn epistle to a different quest, the "Postman never ko's twice" quest guy, and came back to Koru-Moru.
I could NOT flag it.

I talked to him again.
I could NOT flag it.
I talked to him again,
couldn't flag,
and finally on the 3rd try, I was successful.
He said, "Hm? Wait a cotton-pickin' seconderoony. Why do you smell like my sweetie-pie pen-pal Mojiji? Are you into wearing the same perfectareeno perfume as her?"

Thus, my conclusion is you probably need the Torn Epistle in your inventory at some point to get the "smell" on you, and then you have to talk to him 3 times before he'll give it to you.

I'm pretty sure these are the same guys who said they have a Red Chocobo before they even existed... why do some ppl like to cause so much grief. I have lvl 9 fame and never got this quest without the torn epistle. The guys prolly didnt check their inv first and prolly got the drop just never bothered to check...

You dooooo need the torn epistle...

Calling me a liar?

That's fine, cumwad. But I never had the torn epistle, I never farmed for it, never wanted it. I came about the Meteorite by accident, which is the only reason I bothered with the quest. I didn't need the epistle.

And I never had a red chocobo. (Wtf does that have to do with anything anyway?)

Something that no one has mentioned is that the Torn Epistle is aslo use in another quest. The Postman Always K.O.'s Twice. After giving the meterorite to Koro-Moru keep the Torn Epistle. If you collect a Muddy Bar Tab, a Damp Envelope, and a Old Post Card you can trade them to Ambrosius over at the Auction House in Windhurst Walls to complete this quest. You get 500 gil for all four items, 250 for 3 items 150 for 2 items and 50 gil for just one. This quest is repeatable. The Bar Tab and Epistle drop off the savannah rarabs in Sarabaruta and the other two items from canyon rarabs in Tahrongi Canyon.

The quest Star Struck is not repeatable. Any quest where and item is given will not be repeatable. In this case you receive a Coumpound Eye Circlet. Quest where gil is recieved are sometimes repeateable.

Hello everyone,

I got the Quest w/o needing a Torn Epistle.
And i got the Meteorite something between
12:00-14:00 in game time so the rumor about "you get it only at night" is nonsense. I Had THF sub on me and killed about 15 Crawlers untill it droped.

The Torn Epistle dropped almost immediately and the Meteorite took some time [2.5 hours more]. I went to see Koru-Moru's where I traded the Torn Epistle to him in haste without talking to him first; this was his response to the trade:
Koru-Moru: Hey! Why do you have my love letter to my pen-pal sweet-eroony sweetie-pie Mojiji?
Koru-Moru: I want it back-a-reeno! Here, I'll give you this for it, so hand it doodily-over.
Obtained 50 gil.

Checking my inventory reveals he took the Epistle. I tried talking to him after that, but he just says:
Koru-Moru: Ergh... Why, diddly-doodley, do you bother me? I was just riding on the back of a fire dragon as she flew off into the starry night, too...

So, I ran back to W. Sarutabaruta, killed a few more Rarabs, got the Torn Epistle again, and ran back to Koru-Moru. This time, I talked to him first and he gave me the quest. I traded him the Meteorite, got the Compound Eye Circlet, then traded him the Torn Epistle and got 50 more gil. My guess is you can continue to trade the Torn Epistle to him as many times as you want.

Time/Place I've obtained the Meteorite:
- Lightningday, 3:00, ???, center of H-6
- Earthday, 20:30, Waning Crescent (26%), center of I-7
- Darksday, 13:00, Waning Gibbous (79%), SW corner of H-6
- Firesday, 2:00, Waning Gibbous (76%), E side of J-7
- Windsday, 11:30, Waning Gibbous (69%), NE corner of J-6
- Iceday, 13:00, First Quarter Moon (48%), W side of J-7

So, day and time seems largely insignificant, but it would appear that only the crawlers on or immediately next to Starfall Hillock drop the Meteorite.

I spent better part of 2 hours looking for the Thorn Epistle in East Sarutabaruta, with no luck. I read on here to that people could find it in Tahrongi Canyon, I went there and killed a dozen of so and still no drop.
I finally went to West Sarutabaruta where I obtained the meteorite almost 8 hours earlier. The second kill I got the Thorn Epistle.
Lesson learned here, read ALL posts, not just the quest info at the top.
Hope you will have better luck then I did.

i have been annoyed with not getting this quest for a month or so. right now i'm rank3 fame 5 or 6.

here goes:

i read this, went to westsaruta, killed 3 rarabs and got the epistle (for the first time). went straight to the hill, killed 3 crawlers and got the meteorite (for the second time, i tossed it once in frustration over not getting the quest). that was at 15:00-16:00... went in to koru-moru(the rat). got the quest, turned in the stone, completed the quest.

i did this with job 39SAM/19MNK.

It is true. I was killing crawlers for about 3 hours in the southern part of W. Sara. Finally read all the posts here and headed to Starhill. Sure enough, the first crawler I killed around 19:00 game time dropped the meteorite.

k; I turned the letter to the mail handler -dumb mistake- so I guess that might've silently let it go. However I was working up on the ****** quests and then when they (******'s) were sayin the catburgler was prowling around again,
they were curious about what was inside and couldn't get in, but wondered if koru-moru's ring could do it.

I got the meteorite along time ago when I first started the game. Was not sure what to do with it, since I had not gotten the quest yet. And not knowing what to do with it at the time, I threw it away. Can I get it again? I have the quest, but can not get the crawlers to drop the meteorite.

When and where to kill crawlers
# Sep 14 2004 at 6:55 AM Rating: Decent

I wasted a lot of time on this quest. By that I mean, literally, about ten hours killing crawlers in East Sarutabaruta, because an LS member told me to hunt there, and killing them during any time of the day. Finally, another LS member told me to kill crawlers on Starfall Hill at night, and I got the stone in the next game night. The hill is large and it seems a crawler can be on any area on the slope.

Also, if you have this quest, you won't be able to get another from Koro-Moru until you complete it, so beware.

Is it just me, or when you finally get that Meteorite,....you can't run because it's so heavy...? I remember getting it and not being able to run at all (had to walk,..so slow) until I got to Windurst Waters. Is this common with anyone else?? Seems like it would make sense to me....someone carrying a frickin' meteorite would obviously not be able to run............unless they were Super-Saiyan... ;)

You know, it would be much harder if you were carrying a meteor rather than a meteorite... Yes there's a difference. You probably did have walk mode on (/ key on num pad for PC). Simply having an item in your inventory barely ever affects your gameplay.
Speech the creators envisioned:
Hiro: Hello, I am about to persue the infamous Dread Dragon, is there no adventurer brave enough to aid me in my quest?
Speech the gamers use:
Hirox: Hay every1, i'm gunna go kill dread dragon, anybody wna *** with?

Surly you don't mean the difference between a "meteor" and a "meteorite" is the size...

Meteoroid: A chunk of rock with high Iron content floating out in space.
Meteor: A chunk of rock with high Iron content falling towards a larger body (like a planet).
Meteorite: A chunk of rock with high Iron content that has hit a larger body (like a planet).

So... you can't pick up a Meteor because a Meteor would be falling towards the planet. And, while, Yes, Meteors tend to be bigger than meteorites... atleast at some point... Meteors burn up a bit in the atmosphere, and only the larger ones that can survive the thousands of miles of friction become meteorites.

I got this with level 3 fame. At first, he wouldn't give me the quest. Then I got the Torn Epistle, and he gave it to me.

With the Torn Epistle, he asks why do you smell like his sweetie-pie pen-pal Mojiji (remember the dropped-letter quest? the item description says it's a love-letter to a man) then gives you the quest.

I've been trying to get this quest for a while. To counter a point made in an earlier post, I *have* had the Torn Espitle previously - it does not make a difference. Nor does talking to him over and over. Ya need the torn espitle.

You must have it in your inventory when you speak with Koru-Moru. The torn espitle is found exclusively in West Satatabura on Savanna Rahabs. I killed Hundreds of bunnies in East Satabura and colleceted about a dozen Muddy Bar Tabs. Found the Torn Espitle on the fourth bunny I killed in West Sat.

Posts on the meteorite location and conditions are correct (I got mine about a month ago). Early hours around midnight, on the star hill. The reward is worth ~1,000 gil and it opens up nicer quests later on.

Good luck.

You don't need to have the torn epistle in your inventory at the time you trigger the quest. You only need to have had it in your inventory at some time during your adventuring career. You can have turned it in at the auction house already and still have this quest trigger.

Alot of this was probally already said, but I figured I'd give details on how I got it since there seems to be alot of conflicting information in the posts.
I went to WS and killed crawlers through the areas, all times of the day, trying to get the meotorite. I followed the advice of a friend of mine who said the cycle and the hill area were just rumors. I did this for about two hours. Getting sick of it, I decided to play it safe. I went and got the quest, went to the hill, and waited until 18:00. Started killing crawlers, and by 21:00 I had it. Now this could be a fluke, maybe not. Seems likely that having the quest or the time really did make a difference.

As a little extra note of interest... Further tying the Torn Epistle together with getting this quest... If you turn in the Epistle to Koru Moru himself, he will say:

"Hey! Why do you have my love letter to my pen-pal sweeterony sweetie-pie Mojiji?

I want it back-a-reeno! Here, I'll give you this for it, so hand it doodily-over."

You recieve 50 gil for it. Quite interesting really ;)

Just did this quest today...

1) The Torn Epistle droped for me in only a few kills in WEST Sar. Went from lvl 8 to 9 killing easy Rarabs in East and got nothing.

2) The Meteorite's drop from Crawlers in WEST Sar. at any time of the day, though it seemed like I was sticking to easy's and when I went to the first 2 Decent's (at lvl 9) is when I got my meteorite, don't remember the time, but it was NOT from 0:00-3:00 I made sure of that.

This is my humble theory about the problem with people trying to find the meteorite.

After getting the quest there are two NPCs I highly recommend you speak to for information.

This first is Bonchacha right outside Koru-Moru's Manor. She tells you that the black rough stone is the remains of a fallen star.

Next if you talk to Dabaide-Obaide by the AH she/he tells you that she/he saw a falling star in west sab.

Both of these NPCs changed what they said to me the second I finished this quest so unfortunately I can't tell you exactly what they said.

From this information I believe that you must kill crawler's in West Sab. AND...like the "To Catch a Falling Star" it must be at night maybe even between 0:00-3:00 game time. This seems logical since both are about falling stars.

I killed many, many crawlers for other quests(evil pickle ladySmiley: bah)and with this quest active and never once saw a meteorite. But once I came up with my theory I started fighting crawlers in west sab. at 0:00 and had my meteorite by 1:40 game time.

Bonchacha doesn't say anything useful, but Luuh Koplehn tells you: "A rough black stone? Yeah, the professorrr who lives in this manorrr once tried to give me one of those in lieu of his debts. Grrrowl! Just remembering it rubs my furrr the wrong way! The old fool claims those strange sontes are really starrrs that fell from the sky or some such nonsense."

Dabaide-Obaide says: "Gee... The other night when I looked up at the starry-warry sky, a trail of lighty-wighty went "wooshy-wooshy," streaming down to the ground. I think it would have hit the earthy-wearthy out there in West Sarutabaruta somewhere."

As for the epistle, I agree that you need to hand one in - I didn't get the quest until after I handed it in. Although it could potentially also be a fame issue - I dunno. I wasn't specifically trying to get this quest.

For reference, Bonchacha says: "Oh, dearie-dear? Has that spot-dotty Professor Koru-Moru got you running errands for him now? Typical of old Principal Koru-Moru... totally dependent on the grace of others. Most precarious!"

I found mine at 5:10 gametime, before getting the quest, but after turning in (several :P) epistles.

I hadn't put a lot of time in this quest, but I read Coriandria's advice and I got the Meteorite on my 3rd Crawler at the times he said, near the Twinkle Tree.

I got this quest after doing about 20+ Windurst quests. Then, I have been fighting Crawlers for like 15 hours. I leveled to 9 two support jobs, WAR & BLM! This after getting the quest... then, today, when the in-game clock was at 8:32 a.m. I fought a Tough Crawler in J-6 as BLM at level 8. Basically, I just use Bind on them, and smash them with a combination of Water + Poison, until they die. I got more than 100 xp, plus a Meteorite. Then, I trade it for the Compound Eye Circlet. And, go back to fight some Crawlers and Giant Bees to level up to 9. Thing is, in less than 30 minutes I got the Meteorite again. To note:
1)Meteorites appear at any time of day near Hill.
2)You can't get them before activating the quest. I have killed thousands of those Crawlers.
3)What do you do with extra Meteorites?

Is it a game?
It's a SERVICE. Not a game. It's a WORLD. Not a game. It's a COMMUNITY. Not a game. Anyone who says, "it's just a game" is missing the point.

Yup. I definately got my meteorite before activating this quest. I got it from the very first Crawler I ever killed back in the day and I hadn't even activated a single quest yet at that time.

you CAN get the meteroite before activating the quest. I was passing through sarutabaruta for my first trip ever to windhurst, killed a few crawlers and got a meteorite. I had it for a quite a while before i ever got the quest.
Cannot activate quest. :/

I could not get him to activate the quest, and I have already completed the torn epistle quest. I have completed 44 unique quests in windurst, with a few additional repeats.

Directly after this, I went outside, killed a Rarab, got a torn epistle, went directly to Koru-Moru, and talked to him, VOILA! he gave me the quest.

Then I went outside, and first kill of a crawler I got a meteorite.

after completing the quest, I gave the epistle to ambrosius for a repeatable.

Ok, I got lousy fame, but finally managed to get the quest by asking 3 times in a row. He gave me the usual BS the first two times, but then gave me the quest on the third. I had the epistle in my position, don't know if that makes a difference.
