Mosphoran highwaste

Babbling Vale.

The Mosphoran Highwaste (モスフォーラ山地, Mosufōra Sanchi?) is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is a mountain pass that brings the traveler to the outskirts of the Salikawood. The Esper Exodus, the Judge-Sal can be found in Mosphoran Highwaste.

The Mosphoran Highwaste can be unlocked as soon as the Tomb of Raithwall is completed, but the player will need to rent a chocobo in Nalbina Town stables for a price of 800 gil and approach Gibbs and Deweg while riding it. This will cause Gibbs to abandon his post, and Deweg will follow him trying to persuade him to return to his post.

Sage KnowledgeEdit

Mighty mountain range standing between Dalmasca and Nabradia. Well-known for its odd rock formations: overhangs forming roofs over the mountain paths, and lone spires of rock jutting toward the sky. In a col between the peaks is a flat area where spring water bubbles from the ground, creating an ideal resting place for weary travelers. The shrines standing in the clearing were built during the Galtean Alliance, the names of the gods they enshrine long since lost to the ken of Man.

The Mosphoran Highwaste is located to the north of Dalmasca Estersand, and northwest of Nalbina Fortress. Travelers can continue north to reach the Salikawood.



Mosphoran Highwaste in cloudy weather.

Mosphoran Highwaste has three different weather conditions:

  • Sunny
  • Cloudy
  • Rain

The weather is either sunny or cloudy/rain. When the weather is cloudy it can switch between rain and cloudy when zoning through areas within the Highwaste. During rain Fire damage is halved and Lightning damage is boosted.

Fire Elemental comes out during sunny weather in the Summit Path and Trail of the Sky-Flung Stone areas.


See also: Treasure (Final Fantasy XII)

The treasure in the "town" area, in Babbling Vale, near the entrance to the Skyreach Ridge, can contain the Embroidered Tippet. The north part of the Rays of Ashen Light has a treasure that might have the Burning Bow. The treasure on the southern edge of the Trail of Sky-flung Stone may contain a Headband, and the northernmost treasure in the Northern Skirts area may have the Pirate Hat.

Most treasures on the Highwaste are common recovery items, such as Hi-Potions. With the Diamond Armlet equipped the item treasure is most commonly Knot of Rust, but the rare treasure can be Elixir or sometimes Hi-Ether or a Fang.

In Final Fantasy XII: International Zodiac Job System, the Thief's Cuffs can be found in a corner of the Babbling Vale.

Main article: Exodus (Final Fantasy XII Boss)#Finding Exodus

The shrines were built during Galtean Alliance, although the gods to which honor they were built have since been forgotten. Today, numerous shrines are found across the Highwaste, but not all of them are operational. After fixing the gate in Salikawood that leads to the Phon Coast, the player can come back to Mosphoran Highwaste to find some of the shrines working. Using the shrines, the player can build bridges to areas that were inaccessible before. The optional boss Exodus is found in the area in the middle.
