I recently found out how to get the DNA for these creatures. It's quite obvious, but for those, like me, who didn't know about it, here it is:
Step 1: Get in a reasonably-sized solo group (enough to get lvl 99 missions).
Step 2: Go to endor and look on the mission terms for missions with a payout of about 7500-7900 credits.
Step 3: Keep refreshing and looking at missions in the specified payout range until 'a flock of deranged mantigrue' mission shows up. This takes a LONG time, but it does pop up. It's definately worth it. Get two at a time, of course.
Step 4: Go to the mission and take out the lair until it's dead enough that the lair boss spawns. It has spawned every time I ran one of these missions in this way, and I was able to make about 100 samples just by doing this.
I'd suggest bringing along a brawler buddy if you don't have sufficient combat skills of your own. You'll have to kill many a daranged mantigrue to get to the prize.
How this helps
