Flying Squid Ink from Battles

1. Bosses that Drop Flying Squid Ink

The following bosses drop squid ink according to the wiki:

  • Bug Collector in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Caleban in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Crusher in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Khan in Aeriel Jungle (boss)
  • Nightwyng in Zanadu (boss)


2. Instance that Drops Flying Squid Ink

In addition, there’s an instance called “Secret Tunnel” in Aeriel Jungle. The first two battles are against elite creatures, the third against a boss. All three drop squid ink.

  1. Gannon (Ice, 5200 hp)
  2. Madd’n (Fire, 4650 hp)
  3. D’viss (Balance, 15400 hp)

All in all, you’re probably best off first doing the quests that give squid ink and then farming Madden, Gannon and D’Viss for a while. Getting the 45 squid ink will take you a while, but the crafting quest that requires them is meant to be challenging. All in all, I’d even say this is one of the easier parts of the recipe, now that you know where to find your ink.


Good luck on your journey towards Revered Crafter!

    Flying squid ink the first time around isn’t hard to craft. However, I had to craft this weapon on a second account and I did those quests and sold the ink to my main account so he could get it faster. Starting from 0 on my side account, it took a while. All I’m saying is this weapon really is only worth it if you don’t have the 12 energy wand/a fisher. The badge is cool but only 30k gold? An easy mirage side quest gives more than that.

    Secret Tunnel is pretty much the go-to spot for everything. Squid Ink, Cabalist Gear, premium pet jewels, etc.

    • Mora Misthead

      Agreed! 🙂 The not-so-secret tunnel is awesome :p

    It will not drop for me in the secret tunnel. I’ve done the dungeon 11 times and I have one squid ink (from the first time). I don’t know I it’s been removed as a drop of if KI has tampered with the drop rate.
