The Black Moa Chick is a green miniature.


This miniature can only be obtained after completing a cross-campaign scavenger hunt; the character must have access to all campaigns, including the Eye of the North expansion. In brief, you must:

  1. Get a copy of Zho's Journal (requires EotN);
  2. Bring it to Katharine to craft an Incubator Kit (requires Factions);
  3. Fill the kit with 6 items from across the 3 continents (requires the three primary campaigns);
  4. Take the filled kit to Sorrow's Furnace and allow yourself to be zapped by the Iron Forgeman (requires Prophecies).

Scavenger details[edit]

Incubator kit operation[edit]

To place the items in the incubator, double-click on the incubator to open a small window and drag the item into it. Doing this will remove the item from your inventory. The incubator window will show translucent icons as place holders for the six items, which will be replaced with the opaque icon when each item is added.

Incubation details[edit]

Once all six items are placed in the incubator, travel to Sorrow's Furnace with the quest The Final Assault and The Forge Heart active. Fight your way to the central furnace and allow yourself to be hit by Sorrow's Flame, which will hatch the Black Moa Chick (consuming the incubator and its contents). If you are having trouble hatching the chick: check that you were actually hit by Sorrow's Flame and that all items are inside the incubator (and not just in your inventory).

Although the nearby giant furnace (near the Rage Binders) uses a similar skill, the Black Moa Chick hatches only if you are covered by the liquid metal poured down by the Iron Forgeman.


  • Zho's Journal becomes redundant once you have acquired the Incubator Kit; you can safely discard it after.
  • The Black Moa Chick can only be acquired once per character.
  • Most of the scavenger hunt activities can be performed by anyone. However,
    • As noted above, only your character can buy the Incubator Kit.
    • Your character must bring the fully loaded kit into Sorrow's Furnace.
    • In addition, the Nesting Material must be gathered by one of the characters on your account (it need not be the one who is scavenging for supplies).
  • This miniature is slightly smaller than a character in Black Moa Chick Form.
  • You do not need the quest The Final Assault to hatch the miniature. If any member of your party has this quest active, you may take the quest The Forge Heart when you enter Sorrow's Furnace. The Black Moa Chick will hatch when you are hit by Sorrow's Flame.
  • The Black Moa Chick model does not have any eyes.
