Mission Orders

Lying in wait in the castle's innermost chambers was not a generous jackpot, but a chilling confrontation! With a malevolent moogle poised to unravel not merely Mog House tradition but the very fabric of the universe, only our heroes can stand in his way!


Examine the Ore Door in the Throne Room for a cut scene. Examine it again to enter the battlefield. All buffs, with the exception of Reraise granted by an item such as a Reraise Earring, are removed when you enter. Experience points are not lost if you are KO'd. Anyone who has already finished this mission my help without a key item. If you fail, you will have to repeat the previous mission to obtain a new Mega Bonanza Kupon.

Battle Details

This fight is against the moogle Riko Kupenreich. He has the following skills:

  • Bomb Toss - Deals AoE damage and knockback
    • Barfira appears to reduce damage
  • Washboard - Deals around 200-400 AoE damage
    • Can be absorbed by 3 Shadows
  • Bill Toss - Inflicts Terror
    • Turning away will avoid this effect.
  • Crystalline Flare - Draw-in and AoE 300-600 damage. Also inflicts Blind and Stunned
    • Tends to use this at 75% HP
    • Can be stunned

At 50% HP he summons 7 Henchman Moogles - 2 White Mages and 5 Black Mages. He retreats to the top of the stairs where the white mages are until his HP are at 100%. The white mage moogles can not be slept or damaged, but they will despawn once Riko Kupenreich's HP are full. The Black Mages may be slept with lullaby. They use tier III AoE elemental magic and tier IV single target elemental magic. The Henchman Moogles have the following skills:

  • Mog Shrapnel - Does about 20-200 AoE damage in a cone
  • Mog Bomb - 200-400 fire based damage
  • Flowerpot - Inflicts Amnesia, Bind and Stunned to a single target

Riko Kupenreich will retreat and heal to full in this manner twice.

When he gets to 50% a third time, he will retreat and summon the Henchman Moogles one more time, but he will not heal to full HP. At this point, he will use Crystalline Flare regularly, but it will not Draw-in.

Defeat Riko Kupenreich to win the fight.
