Hode plank

Apparently one of the mobs in Makna can drop it. There's a lot of mobs here. Which one can drop it?

There's a creature called a Hode?
rofl.
I'm probably close to that point, but I had to shut it off to do other stuff soon.

Since he didn't mention anything about how to get them after asking, here are the details.

In south east Makna Forest...near Abyss Basin, Precipice Bridge, Hode Lair.
There are enemies with a prefix then 'Hode'. I encountered them mainly during the day.
It takes forever for them to drop, I've only received them when they drop silver chests, and even then it wasn't every time. Good luck.

This is just getting silly
I now have 5 silver chests each reload, and am killing 3 hodes each time... I have reloaded at least 15 times, so easily opened over 50 chests... still only have 3 hode planks

Only bow wielding hodes drop them. Trust me, I couldn't find any either, but a colony 6 NPC told me this, so I tried it out. It works. I killed 5 bow hodes, and all of them gave planks.

Okami is the most incredible game that you've probably never played.

So far every quest item I've needed was the 'rare' drop which means it's unique to each particular monster and not it's whole family.

if you kill two similar enemies and look at their drops, they will share the common drop (tiny bag) and the family crystal drop but the larger bag drop is different for each one. The game is dirty too by letting one kind override another if you group-fight and then they mix groups of different types...

Before you go to the Hode Lair, there is a Prefix Hode + the big green one before you make the turn, kill it and reload.

It drops for me each time easily and that is the only one with more than 50% drop rate.
