Any way to get Scarletite Malistones before the final dungeon?

#1ANort175Posted 2/20/2014 12:04:41 PM
Just need one to level up my Heavy Slash Lv 4, but in the bestiary I only see two enemies that drop Scarletite Malistones, and they're both in the final dungeon. Every omega enemy has drops that just show up as ????? so one of them might drop it, but I'm not sure. So is it possible to get any before the final dungeon, or are those two enemies the only ones that drop it?

Hm? I never got them in the final dungeon either (at least on normal)

As far as I'm aware, they are hard mode exclusive -- and only way to get Lv4 skills on easy/normal is by having them drop from Omega monsters on Day10+

Edit: If you are on hard mode... Cactuar, Cactair and Hanuman/Meonekton/Skeleton/Gaunt Omega should drop them before the final dungeon.

Yep, Cactuars drop them. Just got 3 from killing one. Never would have thought to check them. Thanks guys!

i farm them on Hard mode the drop rates are better also you can get skill level maxed out faster.
