What's the easiest way to get Potent Essence or Mana Essence?
Well the title pretty much says it all. What area do these lvl 4 Monster item things appear most frequently and against what enemies? Also what time point will Choco-boco-lina sell them? TheDiablix - 7 years ago
Choco-boline will offer the items fairly late in the game, I believe after you have gone to AF700, But for 2.5k a pop. You'll need your gil for other things (like buying certain items from Serendipity).
The best place to farm these is in the Arclyte step. Make sure the weather is set to raining then head to the marshalnds (the western area). Every mob has Potent or Mana essences as their normal or rare drop except for the Ochus, which drop Potent Crystals (The level 5 material). Many of the mobs come in packs of 4 or 5, so you can get 3-4 essences per fight.
The area is also great for gil farming. The ochu's will very commonly drop 4-5 crystals, and at 2.5k a piece you make 10k gil every time you kill a pack! Essences also sell for 1.2k
To reach the area either turn on the long-jump fragment skill or touch the cactuar statue in the south side of the map (west of the gate). SnwBorder52 - 7 years ago
