Solo'd this as WAR71/NIN with a mix of AF, eva, and EXP gear while also working on my Pick of Trials. Initially had my NPC out here leveling along with my fiancee on BLM, but we had to logout for some RL stuff. Came back in with 800 unrested HP, killed 2 Blubbers and got my Eye. I didn't have to even rest.

I think the Signet changes from a while back help out a lot here. :)
Soloed, yay!

Soloed the eyes as a 70MNK/26WHM. Only took about 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the eye to drop. Overall, wasn't really all that hard, just a lot of downtime.
Soloed, yay!

One and a half hours to get one of these eyes is terrible but atleast you got one.

This is one of the easiest Hakutaku Eyes to get. I know you already have one but for those that are going to attempt this, goodluck. I hope the drop rate is kind to you. This mob has five spawn points.

(I-7) The very end of that hallway that goes North and then NorthWest
(G-10)Pops in that open hallway
(G-9) At the joint of that elbow shaped hallway
(G-7) Two spawn in this room

Now, unless you will be a backline job. I highly recommend engaging the mob and unlocking from target. Look for a move called Hex Eye. This move absolutly halts all action on you but can be prevented. If you see this move readied by this mob in the chat log, turn and face away from it. This will keep your character in the fight. These things do not link so pull freely in that room at (G-7). If you pull using any ranged/spells etc., more than likely the first thing the Blubber Eyes will do is try and get a AM off. I suggest running away and keeping a distance between you and the eyes so that it does not get this magic off. You have plenty of time to move since AM takes like 20-30 seconds for this mob to ready and then actually cast. Once it realizes it failed the AM, it will start moving after you. If the Hakueyes readies AM during the fight, dont worry about it. I found that me and my THF buddy were able to interupt its casting simply by Meleeing it. I got the drop twice for a record of 2/15. We actually got two eyes before we got two coffer keys. I say we because me 75WAR/NIN and 74 THF/NIN were duo'ing these things. Oh and one more thing, Bloody Bolts are your friend.

I'm able to solo all 5 of them without resting between as DRK74/THF37. My method is Bio II, Poison II, drain. They cast an ancient spell 1/3 of the time at first, so I stun and aspir too, and Absorb-STR. I usually have time to drain again and use Spinning Slash once.

Drop rate is SO bad, though. This is the first time farming this eye and I've been here an hour and a half or so, and have been able to kill 15-20 of them with no drop except a coffer key drop and hecteyes eye drops. Heh... at least I have a map of SSG now :D.

That's not a bad drop rate at all. The last two days some friends and I spent upwards of 5 hours killing Dodomeki's in Ifrit's Cauldron to get Damp Eyes and before I left yesterday (huzzah for farming till 4am) only 2 of us had em.

Sidenote, part of that 5 hours was spent running to and killing Wyvern's for some skulls.

BST67... These are EP to me... Me and my jug pet (charmed a Mindgazer when I run out of broth) were killing these monsters with ease but after 5 hours of bubbler massacre, I started to wonder...

Do these Bubbler Eyes still drops the Earthen Hakutaku Eye? I got tons of hecteyes and thrown lots of coffer keys but got 0 earthen eye...

I wonder...

Edit: Changed DC to EP. They were EP @ 67.

Where is it? I've not yet seen one that's any higher than 58.
Pop points

Here is a map of where the eyes pop:
The red dots are the pop points. They don't link, and nothing will aggro a 75 there. Very easy to kill with ninja sub (Utsusemi: Ni) Good luck.

Soloed this as a 57NIN/WAR. DO NOT ENGAGE (O_O) or you -will- die. The best way of killing this I found was to turn away and spam elemental wheel, keeping all debuffs on and resting when I had 4 shadows up. If you melee this, the hecteyes will beat you down quicker with blaze spikes than you can.

Blubber Eyes are found past the Mythril Door. Someone in a more recent post posted a map with all 5 spawn locations for them.
