The Mataria Krabble is a crab with a hard shell and the Househunter Carly can be found in the Alfeto Valley. To start with this quest you will first have to fast travel to the Forward Post Camp which is a resting camp.

We suggest you take a level 24 group with you when you are heading for a fight against these monsters. Our suggestion is to bring in a variety of Ether arts because these monsters are very resistant to physical attacks due to their hard crust shells.

The cave is the best place for you to farm for these Krabble Sheild Pincers because of the large number of enemies. Take down all of them to receive Krabble Sheild Pincers. But make sure you are careful as these krabbles will attack you in packs and be fully prepared before entering the cave.

Once you have cleared off the area you fast travel back to a resting spot and if you want you can start farming again.

Just remember that you need to activate the Monster Grave of Househunter Carly so that you can fight with him again. And because it is a unique creature in the game the chances of dropping these Krabble Sheild Pincers are also high, unlike the Krabble Viscera. Also, don’t forget to collect the Ether Channel when you are inside the cave.
