Where can grind to get potent materials?

I'm particularly looking for Potent Essences and Orbs, but really any high level material locations would be great.

Potent Essence

Hedge Frog: 15% normal drop
Mud Frog: 15% normal drop

Both can be found in Archylte Steppe (???AF) Rain season close to the place where Ochu spawns.


Potent Orb

Bamapama: 20% normal drop - early parts of Academia 500 AF
Mimi: 20% normal drop - early parts of Academia 500 AF


Apotemkim: 30% normal drop - New Bodhum 700AF, Dying World 700AF


Vodianoi: 25% normal drop -
Samovira: 25% normal drop -

Both spawns in Archylte Steppe (???AF) Sunny, near the Gate crystal were you fight Yomi. Both are rare foes.


Mana Crystal

Ispusteke: 20% Archylte Steppe Cloudy weather, must kill it while its barrier is off.


Vitality Crystal

Ispusteke: 20% Archylte Steppe Cloudy weather, must kill it while its barrier is on.

Ispusteke spawn near the cannion where you can pass only if you mount a chocobo or use special jump fragment skill. Rare foe.


Power Crystal

Fomoire: 20% Archylte Steppe Cloudy weather.


Power Generator

Malebranche: 20% Archylte Steppe Cloudy weather.

Both Fomoire and Malebranche share the same two spawn areas which are in the gate crystal near where Yomi spawns and the little island at the North of the map near the abyss.

iirc killing the Royal Ripeness gives you 3 vitality crystals every time. Which is a lot easier than killing isputeke's with their shields up

Of course if you have DLC then Lighting and Amodar are your go-to people for Mana and Vitality crystals.

For now I disagree. It takes around 1 minute to get 2 vitality Crystals from Ispusteke while take much more time to get 3 from Royal Ripeness.

Potent Crystals are dropped en masse by microchu's in the marsh are of the steppe in rainy weather
