There are two ways you can get Solflower depending on your progress in the game:

  • By defeating the Mirage Master monster at Pynnor Holy Tower – Sanctuary Garden
  • Buying it from Lubart, Klaudia’s Father and vendor of rare items, at the Valentz Manor in Kurken Island – Old Town

There is no way to harvest Solflowers, nor are there any Bottle Codes.

Locations for Farming Solflower

Pynnor Holy Tower – Sanctuary Garden

The fastest location to get Solflower is defeating the Mirage Master miniboss in the Pynnor Holy Tower – Sanctuary Garden. Travel there using the World Map.

When you reach the corner before you make the next right and go further down the stairs, you can see the Mirage Master just below you. To get to it, you have to go under the stairs.

She is not aggressive and will not start a fight with you unless you initiate it first.

Fighting the Mirage Master

The Mirage Master is weak to Wind and resists Ice and Magic type damage. It has around 2,500 and HP should not be taken on without some preparation. Bring some Wind type damage to speed up the fight and some magic resistance equipment as various elemental type magic attacks.

Be careful when the Mirage Master stops attacking and starts charging up. When it’s turn comes up again, it will use Explosion Magic, a strong AoE attack so make sure your team’s HP is topped off to survive it.

Once defeated, it has a chance of dropping a Solflower. It’s not a guaranteed drop though, so if it doesn’t drop it, just reload the map and fight it again. Just be sure to heal before you take it on again, as you don’t recover your HP / MP when you reload maps.

Location of Lubart, vendor of Solflower

Kurken Island – Old Town

If you aren’t strong enough to take on the Mirage Master but still want a Solflower, you can try your luck with Lubart, Klaudia’s father and vendor of rare materials, who has a chance to have it in stock.

To find Lubart, travel to Kurken Island – Old Town.

Lubart sells a number of things, which can include the Solflower for 10 Gold Coins each. His stock of materials that he sells rotates randomly every in-game day, so if he does not have the Solflower, fast travel back home, sleep in your bed until morning to start a new day, then go back to him to see a new stock of materials.

Don’t be confused if the items he’s selling aren’t named properly. Lubart isn’t an Alchemist so he sometimes doesn’t know the actual names. However, the name is close to the actual name and the image and description lets you know it’s a Solflower.

Trivia: In many languages, Sol is the word for the Sun.
