Was able to get the 2 essences within 7 clears.

I found it was faster to clear the 11 consistent spawns at the top of the map and run back out to request a new instance, but I was able to FD up to the ghosts, rather than clearing all the trash in between. Tipt had no ghosts when I visited.
4 clears of ghosts

Got one on the fourth clear of ghosts (actually, got two on the fourth clear).

after about 300 kills I finally got the two essences in vxed. One was from an arisen and one was from a feeble. I guess this is to make up for getting the 3 shells in an hour
Vxed is the Best Zone for These

I've decided that Vxed is far and away the best place to get both the Polished Stonemite Shells and the Untainted Spectral Essences needed for the Lizardscale Plated Girdle quest.

This seemed about par for me, run/clear straight north from zone in all the way to the room behind a gate, 3 ghosts outside the gate and 8 or 9 inside, 3 close to entrance that need split (unless you have a group, I did this solo). One pooka/hynid/stonemite roamer occasionally comes through to the gate, otherwise free.

Dropped from "an infuriated spirit" and "a coercing spirit" towards the end of the expedition in Uqua, The Ocean God Chantry
Actual Drop?

According to what I'm reading this drops in Tipt & Vxed. However, the quest reads that it only drops in Uqua. Anyone confirm where this actually drops? I have the shells but not gonna bother getting scale from Cragbeast Queen if the Untainted Spectral Essence only drops in Uqua. If it does indeed drop in tipt and vxed then I'll go through with this quest. Thanks in advanced to anyone who actuallys knows where this drops.
Drops in Vxed also

They actually drop more frequently in the ghost room in vxed. Got both of mine there one night in 2 clearings of that room
