In-Game Text


Place a bronze bed in your home house and after the next weekly update on Sunday, Moogle will tell you that sleeping in the bed has made him homesick and he would like to take a vacation. However, Moogle is ashamed to go home empty handed. He wants to give Papa Moogle a Power Bow because he likes to enter the archery contest at the fair. Mama Moogle would look very pretty with a Beetle Ring. Poor Moogle asks for your help in finding these items for him.

Bring the items to Moogle and he will tell you he will be back in a few days with a gift for you. Not to worry, he won�t disappear. Later, he will return with a shiny new Mog Safe for you.

Stingy Moogle
# Dec 03 2007 at 4:13 AM Rating: Decent
Back when I started to play FF my friend gave me some gil to get started. I bought a bed and another storage box... cant remember witch 1. I can remember the moogle saying something but didnt pay too much attention. I didnt know there was a quest till a week or more later. I have been trying since to give him the ring and bow to no avail. Do I have to empty my room of everything but the bed and wait for update to be able to do this quest or am I just boned?? Goin nuttz....

For any knew players, when you get the CS from the moogle and you gather the items, you need to trade them to the moogle, not just put them in the mog safe.

In FFXI, inventory space is at a premium. It's the most coveted treasure in the game.

With the exception of the most recently added Gobbiebag VII & VIII quests, I have my inventory maxed out on my main (that includes my Gobbiebag, Mog Safe, and Mog Locker) and still have two alts to hold my gear. I just got my fame up to level three on my Bastok alt so that I could do this quest.

It triggered on Sunday's conquest. I gave him the Beetle Ring and the Power Bow that night. When I checked the next day after midnight, he had returned with my new 60-item capacity mog safe.

I Know it's been covered already, but...

Here's the deal... Rank, Fame, and the Quest. I got it all, so why is my moogle being hard headed and not accepting these items. I know there are people out there sharing my frustration and I also know that this thread has been covered many times. It seems like the common answer is lvl 3 fame in your hometown. Ok if that is true, why is it that a person like myself that has enough fame to snatch up all the avatars for SMN can not trade two insignificant items to his moogle. I'm almost to the point of wanting to PVP my moogle and put a Mandagora in my house in his place...
My Hometown is in third place
# Jul 06 2007 at 8:24 PM Rating: Decent
I know my hometown has to be in first place to get the quest along with other requirement, Ive got the quest when my hometown was in first place, but now its in third place. Ive already given my moogle the powerbow and beetle ring, do I have to wait till my town is in first place again or is there some way I can speed things up to get my hometown back in 1st place again, Im just wondering what to do now?

Edited, Jul 7th 2007 11:25am by KingOfMyPc

Nevermind I waited for 1 day and got the extra 10 spaces, and my Hometown is still in third place so you hometown needing to be in first place is a lye, it doesnt matter what place your hometown is in the conquest to get your extra 10 spaces, you just have to wait till your moogle comes back from its vaction,

lol... ok here it is, I hate posting this because now everyone will know how slow I really am, but there may be someone out there that is pulling there hair out the same way I was. If your moogle is not excepting your gracious offer of a power bow and a bone ring, I have the answer that will cure your frustration. Stop trying to give the moogle a BONE RING!!! Your moogle's mother would like nothing more than a simple beetle ring, not a bone ring, or even a beetle earing. So before you go off the deep end and post an embarassing thread or even say bad things about the greatest game ever, remember to read carefully...
I Got It!!

1. Put your mh in your hometown then put your bronze bed in your layout (in other words you should see it when you walk into your mh).

2. Wait for Sunday 12:01 am (AKA midnight-ish) not sure if this is japanese time or not I did mine at about 11:30am EST.

3. Country conquest placement is irrelavent b/c mine is in 3rd.

4. My fame is 3. I was unable to get this quest at fame 2 and I had to wait for Sunday once I got to fame 3 to get this quest. You can check it with certain npc's in your hometown:
Flaco (Port Bastok, E-6)
Zabirego-Hajigo (Windurst Waters North, F-10)
Namonutice (South San d'Oria, K-6)
Depending on what they say you can determine your fame. Google "ffxi fame" you can find a list somewhere telling you what fame you are depending on what the npc says.

5. Whether rank has anything to do with it I do not know but mine is 2.

6. Be sure NOT to enter your mog safe through your own drop down list or whatever you want to call it. Talk to your moogle like you do any other npc, remember moogles are people too, and you will trigger a cut scene if the above requirements are met (don't know if rank 2 or higher is required or not).

The following link will tell you which npc tells your fame in each city, where the npc is located, and what level of fame corresponds to each comment the npc gives you:


This link confirms that only lvl 3 fame is necessary to activate this quest:

yay i did it

1. this quest is NOT hard, just STAY in your home town for a week, it's boring but can be done.
2. place the bed in layout, i had my storage full, so that doesn't matter
3. wait till sunday midnight japan time, and the next time you enter mog house he says he wants too leave. ; ;
4. buy the items, trade them too him. my problem was he wouldn't take them. most common error is beetle earring or powercrossbow/powerbow +1. only beetle ring and powerbow will work. if he still won't take em, just keep trading them to him, eventually he WILL take them. took me 4-10 tries before he did. lag or something i guess. then wait another week, till after sunday midnight japan time.

I had to get rank 3 fame for this quest.

When I first tried my current character had 18 quests under his belt and the moogle wouldn't budge. So I tried doing some Bubblie Bernie runs (first time on this char) and kept running through my MH to see if stuff sold from the AH. He gave it to me and I went to check and I had hit lv 3 fame.

19 quests
lv 3 fame

Take it or leave it thats my numbers. I hope it helped.

Also, a lot of those quests were repeatable ones. Mostly Groceries, Mom: The Adventurer, and A Flash in the Pan.
The Tower of Power, too sweet to be sour, I'm funky like a monkey, skies the limit and space is the place!
Hardest quest in the game

I solo'd Limit 3. I killed Maat. I defeated the Shadow Lord. I even have Fenrir. And yet I still can't increase the size of my f***ing mog safe. Here I am, a Rank 9 Bastokan with hero fame, and this bed has been in my house about 2 months now. And my Moogle will not talk. What the f*** is this?

Number of Different Quests?
# Oct 08 2006 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
After reading through these posts and completing this quest on a few of my own characters I kind of think that everyone is right and wrong. Every time I've attempted this quest, I've had rank 3 fame, rank 1 missions while in my home town. My wife also has rank 3 fame and rank 1 missions in her home town (same as mine). I placed the bed in my mog house and got the quest the following Sunday (Windurst was NOT in first place in the conquest). I gave my wife my Bronze Bed to use next week, and she didn't get the quest on Sunday. The only difference between her character and mine is that I have completed 11 DIFFERENT quests (some repeatable, some not)and achieved Rank 3 fame. My wife on the other hand has only completed 4 different repeatable quests (and achieved Rank 3 fame). So maybe it has more to do with the number of different quests you complete for your home city, and not the actual rank of fame itself?
Number of Different Quests?
# Oct 09 2006 at 10:35 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, here is my best guess. First off, fame rank is needed, but not sure how much fame for which of the quest. Second, once you place the bed in your house, make sure you have your residence in your home town at the end of the tally (in other words, on saturday night, check out of any rented rooms (so the moogle will move back in and "sleep" in the bed)). After the talley, he should give you a cutscene if your fame is high enough. After that, I'm not certain if you need to be in your home town to get the second cutscene or not, but you should do so to be safe.

with which moogle does have one to give the power bow and the beetle
ring?? at san d'oria ? at windurst ??.. and the bronze bed what moogle ??
# Oct 08 2006 at 11:03 PM Rating: Decent
it is the origional moogle in your mog house that minds your items. you place the bed in your moghouse in "layout" and after the next conquest tally, if you have enough fame and questts completed, when you talk to your moogle he will ask you for the items (the moogle in your moghouse that is) good luck! ^^
# Aug 15 2006 at 10:13 AM Rating: Decent
ok now im just wondering. how much is the safe increased by 5? 10? or something else i just want to know.
# Oct 08 2006 at 11:04 PM Rating: Decent
Here's a interesting thought.
# Aug 02 2006 at 9:59 AM Rating: Decent
If every Mog in the game is named Moogle, and they all look exactly the same, how does your storage Mog know which Moogles' are his parents?
problem !
# Jul 18 2006 at 3:14 PM Rating: Decent

I got the quest.. and i handed my moogle the power bow and beetle ring and he said thanks and all the good stuff and that he would return in a few days..

Tho.. he never left?! I remember doing this quest before and he would leave lol.. is something up?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: came home from work, and talked to the moogle and got a cut scene, and my mogsafe was upgraded...

FYI, he never left for me and it seemed to have taken just over a full rl day.

go to bastok and buy cornettes and trade them to a npc in windy

Go to bastok market and stock up on cornettes and trade them to the guy in windy walls. You buy them for like 213 each and trade them in for a 200 gil reward, so not much of a gil loss. You need a lot of them, 150+ to get pretty high fame, but it's easy. Grab a friend, or mule them, or you can use the delivery box trick...

I have been waiting for this quest to start for 3 months and all I did today was move something out of storage and it started. WTH? It is either bugged or has something to do with fame because I recently reached level 3 fame.
RE: storage
# May 24 2006 at 4:05 PM Rating: Decent
Just an idea, but...could it be that you had placed an item into storage, thus occupying the "storage" slot of the bed, and when you removed it the bed was empty so to speak, so the quest kicked in?

power bow
# Apr 23 2006 at 12:02 PM Rating: Decent
does it have to be a reg power bow or can it be a power bow +1 .... also the fact that i activated the quest on the 360 beta will that make a differance?
