which fiend is the best for farming dark matter and does luck factor in at all with it?

Sleep Sprout can be killed in one hit if you're strong enough. Luck, the stat, doesn't really come into it. You just need to be lucky to get the rare drop.

One Eye. If you have Anima, it takes about 30 seconds to kill and you can sell the armor drops for up to 60,000+ if it's a three slot. Plus the weapons give triple AP so you'd be stupid not to get a three slot for all your characters given how easy it is. Plus you can steal up to two blessed gems from it, which you can use to give armor +20% Defense or Magic Defense.

Only try to steal twice if you get a preemptive attack; two gems seem to show up the most often then, Rikku seems to have the best success stealing them and if he gets to attack you [i]are[/i] dead.

Hanakage? TC is asking how to farm Dark Matters.

Anyway, I think Sleep Sprout is best option for you. Be sure that you have a weapon with First Strike equipped since it can ambush you.

One Eye drops Dark Matters. Two of 'em. It's a rare drop but he does do it.
#7HanakagePosted 6/19/2010 2:17:51 PM
Well, actually it's probably only one, but I always overkill him which doubles the drop.

Summoning Anima is incredibly time-consuming and pointless, even on Short.

Who cares? It's a ridiculously easy kill, profitable as hell, allows for the ability to make three times as much AP with literally no effort other than waiting for the right drop and the last time I checked time wasn't an issue.

Is this a race or something?

It also drops magic defense spheres.

+4 to magic defense? Yes please; as many as you can.
