I've killed about 35 zinogre at this point with out getting a single jasper, and I can feel my sanity slowly ebbing away. I'd like to know if I'm better off doing the multi-monster quests to get them, or if I should just continue fighting solo zinogres.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I've been playing offline almost exclusively, so I have yet to reach High rank in the port. Although I could probably burn through the low rank port quests without much difficulty to unlock it. Actually, that's probably the best idea.
