Post Quest 125 Jewel Collection
I feel like a big dumb ass for selling all my treasures/jewels, if I knew it was such a HARD thing to get topaz, emerald and sapphires I would have kept it all the way.

This is my 2nd game play, im doing Emelita's route and came across this quest from Hannah, I would like to complete it but I am either dumb, unlucky or something else.

According to the Materials list, Infected Undine is suposed to drop one of the 3, guess sapphire, I've check most of the maps before entering it but none of it list Topaz so I decided to enter a map and try out, I've picked up the map with the minimum day which was 2 at Spiritual Woods, but after killing the undines several times with ful's mill/no drop load again I've never got a single one.

Could some one advise me on best spots or ways to obtain these 3 jewels all I have is ful's mill x3 but can only use 1 at a time ?

Thank you.

Topaz: Megaro, Megaworm, Worm, Razorwing
Saphire: Infected Undine, Frozen Kankuri, Devilfish, Thunder Wyrm
Emerald: Static Kankuri, Freki

The Gems are a low drop rate so you just have to kill a lot of monsters.
The Ful's Mil helps (+1 drop), there's also a Ful's Tears (+2 drop) but that's in a level 70 dungeon in the Yuidora Mine (Untouchable Cage) which you may not be able to get into yet.
You can equip both items at once to get +3 drop, just not 2 of the same item.

I think the Topaz were the hardest to get, I have the least number of them anyway. (T=10, S=122, E=45)
I used the Chaotic Wargrounds (Chapter 6 map) which has a lot of regenerating Kankuri and a few Megaworms.
The Kankuri only appear there so that's your only choice for Emeralds.
(Razorwing, Thunder Wyrm & Freki are the Level 90 Append 2.0 maps and if this is only your second play you don't want to go near them for a while)

On the plus side, Quest 125 doesn't fail until Chapter 8.
You will come across some other NG+ quests that are worse because of time limits.
You need to gather the items for those beforehand because you don't have the time otherwise.

Am I doing it right ?

I picked up the Chaotic place because I can get the 3 items from there, I have it saved when a frozen kukuri spwned.

Now I have to kill him, check drop, reload if no jewel is that correct ?

Not happy to say im at chapter 7 so I either do it or fail ;(

On another save I am currently doing the pre-map before the cage thing to see how many days I will lose to get the tears item, if not many I will follow up from there.

I think I never got a single Emerald drop so far as I looked on my inventory and there wasnt a single item called emerald with a 0 count.

In regards other quests, I've seen some already like the bar guy that asks for 50 drinks, spear/shield quest, so far the only quest I failed was the bar guy asking for the drinks.

Nevertheless thanks a lot.

Yeah, you are doing it right, it's just the item's have a low drop rate.
I know it sucks a bit but you just have to keep killing them.
It's a lot easier if you have both Ful's item's because then you get 4 drops.
I just tried and after 4 kills I got 1 Emerald, that's 1 out of 16 items.

These gems come under the Other tab in the inventory.
First you get any clothing bonus gems, then there's Topaz, Ruby, Sapphire, Alexandrite, Emerald.

When you do Untouchable Cage, don't activate the second base straight away.
Search around for the hidden area's first to find the Ful's Tears.

Emerald was by far the hardest for me to get. I must have killed more than 200 Static Kankuri to get those 5 Emeralds the first time...

In the Chaotic Wargrounds map, if you number the spawn points in the Kankuri room 1-4, from NW to SE, Frozen Kankuri can spawn from #2 every 3 turns, and Static Kankuri can spawn from #4 every 4 turns (most of the time you get a regular one of course), so you can close the other two, pass the time and pray/save scum for the right ones to spawn. Remember to turn off combat and dungeon animations, since these are huge time wasters.

If save scumming works (I thought it didn't, but I haven't actually tried), then at least you stand a chance of making it in time. Otherwise, I'd roll back to a save before taking the quest and farm what you need before hand. That's what I always do, when I get a timed quest.

There was just 1 base, on the far side protect by amodeus or w/e her name was but I cleared the mobs, I assume now I have to go back and search for a chest or what ?

Yeah that is terrible boring specially when u hate doing repeatable things...

Yes I know where they are I just never dropped any emerald so far, I have in there sapphire, topaz, etc but ofc count 0 as i sold everything *tehe*...

Forgive me but what does scumming means in the context, not familiar with the term.

Damnit you can do that, LOL, and there was I clicking next turn and watching everything move, until my time comes in...

Once again thank you very much for the help everyone ;)

======
UPDATE
======

So I got the Ful's Tear in 3 days so I have 57 days left on the quest hope that is enough :P thanks every one for the tips and info

=======
UPDATE2
=======

Guess I am really doing something wrong here, it keeps droping the same items all the times, thats the 30 time with same items in a row:
Code:
Blue Stone x 1
Frozen Fragments x 3


Well will give it a break for now, using Ful's tear and ful's mill to boost the drop rate after 50 tries reloading the map I get the same items in the same order and the same amout as the above quoted sounds rather odd to me.

I did try to kill some mobs before killing the frozen kankuri which did change the drop but still no lucky, wasnt it suposed to be random ? 50 x the same items :(

Save scumming is reloading over and over to get a desired result. It's a term typically used in RPGs or strategy games. I had a feeling that wouldn't work, and that the drops were locked in at a specific point in time. What might, possibly, work is saving at the end of a turn, then getting different drops on the next turn when reloading. So you could save on the turn before the desired mob spawns, then reload to that turn if it doesn't drop what you want. That might work, but it really does depend on when the drops are generated.

OH that makes sense, thanks a lot I will try that.

======
UPDATE
======

The scum save / load prior to monster spawns seems to work like a charm, 3 shappires so far ;) by that it also means the amount of sapphires you can get from the spawn is random and not limited as well.

I might be able to actually do the quest in the end ;)


========
UPDATE 2
========

Awesome, using save/load prior the spawn was fairly easy to get the 5 emerald/sapphire but the main problem now is the topaz, can't find a good place that have a spawn of any of the mobs that drop the topaz.

Some things I have notice while doing the above is that the spawn have a fixed order (so you know when the mob you need will spawn), the drop of a monster is defined once it spawns from his drop list at random order.

========
UPDATE 3
========

Places I used to complete the quest:

Kania Wastelands (Blockaded Area) - TOPAZ
- Lots of worms, Magaro, Megaworms from both spawns

Chaotic Warground (Serpent Road) - EMERALD / SAPPHIRE
- From the left waypoint the bottom spawn will give you static kankuri and from the right waypoint the bottom spawn will spawn the frozen kankuri, you can get the 5x each within 1 run

------------

Thank you very much Ross and Franka, would never done this without both of your help ;)

Hope the information will help others to complete it.

Took me 3 days to complete the the 3 maps to get the Ful's tear (1 day per map on yudora mine)
Took me 1 run to each of the maps to get the 5 x items needed (where on chaotic you can get both items together total os 10 days per map entrance

The most painfull is Emerald, since static kankuri dosen't spawn all the time (sometimes a normal kankuri spawns). The same is with Frozen Kankuri - therefore, I think it's better to save scam with Infected Undine in the Polluted Upstream map.

From what I have farmed, the Ful's Mill or/and Ful's Tears dosen't affect the rare item drop at all. My character was equipped with it all the time, but it was always 1 number of rare gem drop.

Thanks a bunch for this topic hurray for the search button, and thanks for the detailed locations.
I had a hard time collecting the sapphire that i went towards the forest of souls instead and visited the polluted upstream. It only takes you 2 days to go there and there's 3 starting undines

There is a furniture that you can get in NG+ that gives you Emeralds every so often. I read on the wikia that it is every 16 days. I believe it comes from the last quest out of three where you invest money so Tian can make you it.

Funnily enough, it is quest 124, right before 125.
