Event Schedule

From Thursday, November 8, 2007 at 01:00 PST until Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 01:00 PST.

How to Participate

1. To take part in "Crystal War Revisited," talk to any of the moogles found at the following locations:

2. Raid one of the following beastmen-held positions and obtain a fragment of the Huge Crystal being kept there:

Marker marks the Huge Crystal for Palborough Mines, Second Level - (F-6)
Marker marks the Huge Crystal for Castle Oztroja (I-8)

  • Defeating the special Notorious Monsters that can be found wandering about near the Huge Crystals will result in a temporary bonus to the amount of crystal fragments a character can hold for all PCs in the area at that time.
  • It is good to note that you do 'not' need to CFH on any of the NMs, simply kill them and the rest of the area will share the effect.
  • The NMs will repop once per game day, so if you do not see them, come back and try again at the start of the next game day.
  • It is believed that several level 70s are needed to kill the NMs in the higher level dungeons. Be aware of this when attempting to collect crystals.
  • It is very possible that a time limit has been set on the 'collect more' effect gained by killing the NMs. You will not be able to idle in an area and collect more than the normal allotted crystals.

3. Should you safely obtain a crystal fragment, return to town and report back to the Moogle. Work together with as many adventurers as possible to secure victory and earn your nation the title of most powerful among the Allied Forces of Altana!

  • Participation in Reliving the Crystal War is unlimited throughout the duration of the event.

Castle Oztroja


  • You can only retrieve 1 or 2 crystals before receiving the following message:
"The Crystal is badly damaged. Any more attempts at shard retrieval may damage it."
  • Most of the time, you can only get 1 or 2 shards (lesser or greater beastmen stronghold, respectively), sometimes you can get 2 or 4.
  • If you're seeing the above message, return to your Moogle and try again after submitting it.

Moogle In-game Text

The following text was retrieved using POLUtils. The Prompts have been left in so you can see what each line of text functions as:
