And welcome to my most detested enemy-type in FFXIV, the Stroper, part of the
lucious hated Morbol family. These revolting, giant, anything-eater plants are plentiful.
They're found in the Central Shroud at Hopeseed Pond where, ironically, you will find precisely zero hope. There are also Stropers in the South Shroud (Lower Paths), where they are a few levels higher.

How Many Stropers for Hunting Logs?
- Marauder: 4 (Rank 4)
- Thaumaturge: 4 (Thaumaturge Rank 3)
Although I've mentioned Bentbranch being the nearest one, it is quicker to get to Sorrel Haven from Gridania. Simply select the White Wolf Gate instead of the other two. As there's a chance you have Gridania port for free or reduced rates, it may be cheaper to go that way too.
Be careful around Hopeseed if you're within a few levels of the Stropers. That's because, nearby, are the Heliostropers which are much harder to take down - and much bigger. They are part of an unrelated quest and will not count towards your Hunting Log.
