    Hi to all FFBE players,

    i noticed in the forums many people are asking about most of the items for awaken for grinding them
    i think i'll post this small guide and list to help out.
    do help out also if you find out more than i do to help others :)

    most of these are the ones i encounter during questing or exploring
    [Notes before you start]
    *Before you start hunting always do try to bring thieves with you or any unit with steal to increase the amount you can get per run*
    *thieves are useless in vortex of desire as they cant steal anything from monsters there, but
    COLOSSEUM and other runs they can net something*
    *STEALING is a ONCE per Monster*
    * Not confident Bringing a Thief ? go to "zadhel Westerland" and go grab Earth key # 25 which is the recipe for STEAL ! items needed ( WIND Cryst x 8 , Demon Tail x 8 , Alcryst x 1 )

    (x-x) = no of items you can get per run

    Heaven's Ash - Coliseum (1-2) , Vortex Dungeon INT/ADV (2-3) , Phantom Forest Exploration (2-6) with thief (8 so far)
    Enemies to look for - Poisoned Eagle/Bird , Ghoul

    Sacred Crystal - Coliseum (1-2), Vortex Dungeon INT/ADV (1-2) with theif (3-4), Phantom Forest Exploration (1-2)
    Enemies to look for - Chimera, (will list others after my vortex resets)

    Cactuar or miniCactuar sightings !! (drops Star Quartz or Scream Root)

    - Fulan Pass (1~3 )
    - Phantom Forest (1~2)
    - Zadhel Wasteland (1~3)

    Scream Root ( For Syntesize) (Keys !!!)
    - Mini Cactuar with a weird name
    - Rewards in Trophies

    Fine Alcryst
    - Random "Drop" in Syntesis
    (This is just my observation i so far had obtained around 7 of this item all from Synthesizing Abilities) Namely
    - Stonera ( Remove stone Status)
    - Aero (Wind Spell)
    - Stone ( Earth Spell )


    feel Free to comment and suggest more >__< i will expand the list further as i progress the game XD

    You can get farplane dews in Phantom Forest Exploration from Alarunes. I just farmed for some tonight in order to awaken my CoD. They're the little red/pinkish onion head lookin' fellas.

    Thank you very much I need those for my cod and my exdeath. I'm only on Funlan pass so I'm not sure how far away I am from phantom forest.

    Not far at all. You're about to reach the second continent after Funlan Pass and Phantom Forest is like 2 zones into the second continent.

    Yep, just double checked my ingame map and Phantom Forest is the 2nd zone on the 2nd continent. :) good luck and have fun!

    According to the wiki it says Chocobo Eater drops those. It's in the zone right before Phantom Forest. Deserted Highroad.

    Nice thanks a lot I will have to farm those. Also is there a way to increase steal chance? It costs 3mp to use and if you keep failing you run out of mp fast.

    It looks like you will get a thief item after you get all the Earth Keys (not possible at the moment) that may be used to increase steal chance, though someone who played the JPN version should confirm this.
