This can be obtained as soon as the Main Quest 2-3 in Yusnaan, but it won't be easy. (It involves a Zaltys).

When you infiltrate The Patron's palace, you eventually come upon a room where either a Zaltys or Cyclops spawns. (The Cyclops spawns very rarely, I only had 3 Cyclops pop up in the 30 Zaltys spawns that occurred). They ALWAYS spawns in this room, even if you kill it, so this is a great way to farm. On top of that, the Zaltys also drops Fira, which is nice to have.

After killing it approximately 30+ times (Check your Inventory for Firewyrm Scales), a pink/purple one will spawn called Zaltys Omega (it has the Omega sign next to its name).

While a normal Zaltys has 110.000 HP, a Zaltys Omega has a wooping 550.000 HP, this might seem very intimidating at first, and he will take little to no damage, but once you stagger him you can rack up damage real quickly. After battling regular Zaltys so many times you should know how to deal with this guy. Just make sure you bring Potions with you, and try to buff yourself if you can.

Make sure you keep a Save ready in case you can't kill him, so you can reload your Save to regain the lost hour from Escaping.


-- The reason why I mention Zaltys instead of a regular mob is because A. You only need to kill 30, vs the 120 of a 'small' monster, and you also get at least 2-3 EP depending on your difficulty. This allows you to CONSTANTLY keep up Chronostasis, so no time will be lost. You can also use it on Curaga as well if needed. --
