They're 2M when bought - is there a faster way to gain/earn/find a trapezohedron other than grinding for the gil necessary to buy it?

If you are patient, and don't mind getting really bored... Setup Vanille as your party leader, preferably with the Improved Debuffing weapon, and a whole lot of haste. Pick a fight with the big adamantoise right outside the Eden Palace, immediately summon your Eidelon to take out the legs, then send the eidelon home and spam the Death spell. I usually setup the other two party members as synergists to quickly pickup haste and faith.

Interestingly enough - I killed this guy before I ever walked into the Eden Palace, and he never crashed through the glass, it let me loot both treasure spheres located right there!

Some more tips for this technique can be found online.

  • Spamming death on those things made a good 2 or 3 days for me and my gf in the plains...took for-ev-er.

  • By the time you get higher in levels, you can just beast them down faster than you would death them.

You can always grind Tortoises and hope for many 60k item drops. Either way I guess it will take some time.
