They will drop no matter if you have the quest or not. Used to be it was decent gil for those lazy BRDs that don't want to to farm the items. I just bought one for 5k.

I went to Castle Zvahl Baileys to get SANDS OF SILENCE from Demon Magistrates and Chancellors. I was there from 1 pm to 9 pm. I killed hundreds of demons and NO DROPS. I was getting frustrated as hell. I hit myself in the head, and said "CRAP, I FORGOT TO TALK TO OPO-OPO ROROPP!!!!" I went back to Khazam and talked to Roropp to start the quest for that item. I went back to Castle Zvahl. On the second kill, a demon chancellor, I got the drop. I was like WTF. So now I talk to the opo-opo before I go get quest item, and I get the drops in matter of 2-10 kills. Maybe this will help with your drops.

What does this have to do with Utukku?

Maybe it's just my luck but I am now 0/45 on wandering bulbs. I'm killing them in the Capricious Cassie room (basement of Fei'Yin). I'm going as 67 BRD/THF. Killing them is slow but not difficult as long as I sleep them when they start casting AM. I refuse to pay the 50k+ that they are selling for......

Happy hunting

When killing for the bulb...

As a 75BLM/RDM, these range from Too Weak to very low Easy Prey, at least in Fei'Yin. I've been killing them for about two hours now, and haven't gotten a bulb yet, but that doesn't really surprise me. It's just frustrating because this is the last piece I need for the Crown, and there are none for sale on the AH!

Anyhow, as BLM, this is my strategy for killing them, and I haven't had a problem yet:

Use Stoneskin/Blink, and Bind the Utukku. Be prepared to Stun, as they respond to being pulled by casting a spell. Most of the time it's Ice Spikes, which isn't scary at all, but I've seen them cast Blizzaga II and Aeroga II, as well as Tornado and Burst. Once you've avoided this first spell, silence them. With capped enfeebling magic, this has never been an issue, even on Iceday during double-ice weather.

Once they're bound and silent (read: helpless) start nuking- Fire IV and Thunder IV does very decent damage, but Blizzard IV seems to be resisted very often. I had really good luck using Thunder and Fire IV, and then Burst II. If you don't have a tier-II ancient magic, use Aero IV and repeat either Thunder or Fire when ready. Even if the Utukku comes unbound, don't panic- I had one come unbound almost immediately and it wailed on me the whole time, but it didn't manage to break through Stoneskin before it died.

One other thing- take care when killing in the large room in the basement. If there is any type of weather in effect (Ice/Dark) there will be elementals floating around very near to the Utukkus. They still check EP at 75, and they will aggro if you pull with magic.

There's a bunch in the Capricious Cassie room (basement of Fei'Yin). 3 more in the north-south hallway west of that room.

What drops way better? Do you mean the Wandering Bulb? The cotton cloth and revival tree root seem to drop well.

The wandering bulb hasn't dropped yet in Eldieme and I'm wondering if it even drops there >.<; Does it?
