Akheva Ruins room by the Sacrificed Remains. Only 5 mobs but average one drop per clear and its a 5 minute respawn.

Umbral Plains. PoK>Nexus>DSP>ME>UP then it's a short run to an area with a house frame (not a ruin but it's as if they got the frame and fireplace up then just stopped building) with four Dark Masters inside. The Dark Assassin's move randomly near the house frame and have a respawn time of about twenty mins. Best thing for my Mage is to park the pet on a hill and pull the lot to him. You'll get the occasional add so watch out. Everything is grey at lvl 80+ so my pet just kills one at a time and moves to the next. Only had one problem when there's so many the DPS started adding up; not worth it having your healer merc up for me but might for you. Only hassle is boredom waiting for respawns. Personally I logged, found something to do for about twenty mins and then relogged and pulled them again. I netted about half a dozen Essences each cycle. I tried Maiden's Eye and Akheva Ruins and only found one drop after about an hour while after a couple tries I've got almost a full stack (twenty drops).
Common Drop???

Does this only drop from mobs in a specific area? I must have killed over three dozen Xi Vius and Xi Xaui last night with out a single drop. A real PITA for a supposedly common drop.

They drop rather commonly from the mobs listed in Akheva, although there are only a handful of such mobs. (In the same room as the altar/sacrficed remains.)
