Where to get high level night vision gems?

Which mob drops them?

I can confirm Ancient Daedala does not drop them. I got the chest and reloaded it 10x, he don't drop it. He drops ice gems for heat sink, that is all.

^ Actually, Ancient Daedala does drop them. After reading your comment, I went and fought him and he dropped a Rank V Rare Earth Cylinder which has a 84% Night Vision.

For future reference, doing something luck-based 10 times is not a good test at all. The number of attempts should be much much higher before you determine the item drop isn't possible.

I just beat Ancient Daedala a couple of times and I can confirm that he does, in fact, drop Night Vision gems. Gonna beat him a couple more times so I can make some Heat Sink gems.

Acutally, Ancient Daedala is the only mob who drops the level V night vision cylinders and the equally rare heat sink cylinders...

Apparently I was just really unlucky. He does drop it.

Actually 10 times usually is a good test to determine a non-rare drop, I was just super unlucky. Skill books are generally more rare, especially if you are looking for a specific one, and it might take 50 reloads to find one of those.
