Sunqua Vale
Zhengjo Temple in the northeast corner is full of mantid pop-up groups, including the necromancer boss Yunlai Deathkeeper (bosses have a chance of dropping 2 trophies). For a low-intensity farm, the eastern meadow is sparsely populated with passive, low-level mantids.
Kinya Province
The glen just outside Ran Musu Gardens is densely packed with mantids, including the assassin boss Tahkayun Tsi.
Saoshang Trail
Mantids infest the entire length of the trail, including numerous pop-up groups.
