Flying Squid Ink from Battles

1. Bosses that Drop Flying Squid Ink

The following bosses drop squid ink according to the wiki:

  • Bug Collector in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Caleban in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Crusher in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Khan in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Nightwyng in Zanadu (boss)

 

2. Instance that Drops Flying Squid Ink

In addition, there’s an instance called “Secret Tunnel” in Aeriel Jungle. The first two battles are against elite creatures, the third against a boss. All three drop squid ink.

  1. Gannon (Ice, 5200 hp)
  2. Madd’n (Fire, 4650 hp)
  3. D’viss (Balance, 15400 hp)

All in all, you’re probably best off first doing the quests that give squid ink and then farming Madden, Gannon and D’Viss for a while. Getting the 45 squid ink will take you a while, but the crafting quest that requires them is meant to be challenging. All in all, I’d even say this is one of the easier parts of the recipe, now that you know where to find your ink.

 

Good luck on your journey towards Revered Crafter!
