Drops off every mob in the Skyfire Mnts zone

This drops equally off of every mob in the Skyfire Mountains zone. Each mob has ~1% chance of dropping a Pearlescent Fragment. I got this information from Magelo's loot statistics for this item. There is no preferred spot or mob.

So kill any 400 mobs in Skyfire Mountains and on average you should have your four Pearlescent Fragments.

Drops off every mob in the Skyfire Mnts zone

Pulled mobs with my level 90 Rogue to the hill next to the wall of the zone and Veeshan Peaks ZL.

I'd say the 400 mobs thing is pretty accurate. Maybe less though, or I just got lucky (If you call anything in this epic lucky)
First pull I grabbed 14 mobs - Logged over to my 41 Cleric and looted all the corpses, found one frag
Then pulled 76 - no frag
Then pulled 80 - No frag
Then pulled 62 - One frag
Then pulled 70something - 3 frags and one look alike (Defiant monk/bst h2h weapon that looked like a pearl LOL)
Luckily another cleric who was also working on their epic 1.0 zoned in minutes after I started attacking the huge swarm of mobs. So I was nice enough to /ooc that I had an extra pearl rotting for him/her... I mean, I know I'd like if it someone did that for me.

The HARDEST part of this nowdays would be pulling mass amounts of mobs and not losing them because of Run5 or your mount. Walking was way to slow and if I did it I was basically permastunned. So run like you're drunk (Weave in and out) to keep them from walking away from you

I just had 3 of these drop in 2 hours north of the wiz port while working on the Bard epic.
Drops from mobs and locs

First 2 I can't remember what dropped the fragments. Third was from Mature Chromadrac. Fourth was A Wurm. Took about 2-3 solid hours of killing. First drop was on eastern border of the pool of lava in NE middle of zone. Last 3 were directly south of the center lava pool and straight north of wizard port. Hope it helps anyone.

While some post amazingly quick numbers, I'm going to say the norm for this camp is "your patience will be tested."

If you are facing the entrance to VP, look to your right--you'll see a section of the mountain that ascends upwards--you can set up camp there, as NO roamers cross that area. I had two friends join on their alts (a warrior and druid, both below 60 at the time), and myself a 56 cleric. We got one fragment in about five hours of grinding, and it had dropped within the first 30 minutes (to taunt me apparently, with making me think I was in for a fast camp).

I didn't keep up with my timer past the first day, but it took me a solid week of playing to get all four gathered--roughly 4-8 hours a day/night of gaming, living in Skyfire. ...may I never see that zone again except to cross through it.

When you kill over 1000 mobs in the zone and see not even a single drop it is NOT uncommon, it is Ultra Rare. So please change that "Rarity listing to Ultra rare as it should be listed. thanks

I guess SOE changed the loot table, or you must have had very very bad luck. About a year ago, we hunted in Skyfire (at the Dragon Ice Temple south of Overthere zoneline) and got all four fragments within 1,5 hours.

Do a /petition, and don't give up!

I've been hunting at the BW wall for 6 days killing everything from the Lava river just north of it and not a single Pearlescent. I've had guildies and friends help even. A couple times we went all over the zone killing everything in sight and still not a one. They really really need to up the drop rate on these, especially since we need 4. Many times I've wanted to just say ----- it and give up on this epic. Is it really worth it. Now I understand why so many players end up going to other games. looking through the forms I can see its not just me. Difficult is one thing, but time consuming is unreasonable. Wake up Sony, wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On Sept 15 2008, I counted killing 183 mobs (pulling about 30-40 at a time and AEing the hell out of them) and not a single drop.
On Sept 16 2008, I counted killing 329 mobs and not a single drop.

So in total, without exaggerating, I've killed 512 mobs and haven't gotten A SINGLE FRAGMENT. Something most definitely has to be wrong maybe in the latest patch, because there's no possible way the odds of getting the drop is 1 in over 512. This is ridiculous. I've basically power-destroyed the entire zone a number of times now and haven't seen the shard. I've done this cleric epic a few times in the past and sure, this camp is time-consuming, but nothing at all like this. The other times I've done this I've gotten 1 drop in about 50 kills, right now it's nowhere near that.

Pearl Fragment Hunting
# May 19 2008 at 6:04 AM Rating: Good
Kalysta's advice remains good:

"Best spot to camp them I have found besides the front of VP area,(if you can handle multi at once) was at:

P -3046.4683, -5358.6616, -162.8559, 0, 0, 0, 2, fragment_camp_2

copy and paste to your Skyfire_1.txt file in your map folder.
They path right through. And many at once. Got 4 fragments in one night, 2 different 4 hour sessions. If you have others with you, you can also go grab the clumps in front of the vp entrance. "


In 5-6 hours at the VP entrance we succeeded in getting the 4 fragments. I have done the Overthere ZL and the Wizard port camps in the past. If you are lower level or not a strong group the wizard port seems to be the safest as far as mob difficulty and adds go.

Chromadacs dispell (like mad)but can drop the fragments. If you avoid them you seem to end up with alot of them pathing around. As a necro I kited them away from the group to minimize the buff loss.

Success fragment hunting varies... I have seen a cleric get all 4 in less than an hour, I have assisted a person that needed closer to 16 hours. Level 50s characters get decent xp in this zone and so many spells drop it is good to have lots of bag space.

Felia Goldenwing is a turn-in NPC for the chanter 1.0. She can be a pain to catch up. If you find her it is nice to make sure no chanters are in the zone, and I would check within guild if that applies too. She seems to get killed by other mobs in Skyfire and is apparently on the named cycle.

Oh... excited clerics make sure you look up Ragefire before doing your turn in. It is a good fight to overpower.

I pasted that loc into my map & the result was a location at the very top end of the zone where no creatures path.

Just east and a little north of wizard port, a tremendous variety of mobs path thru. I got 3 shards there when farming for my epic a few years back, with the assistance of many of my friends in The Honorable Few, Veeshan server.

I never got a fragment off a drake of any kind.
Or a devourer (flying sperm that makes splort noises)
I believe I got most of my drops from wyverns & wurms.

Figured I would share my experience with, by far, the longest camp in my epic quest so far.....I spent 3 days at around 2-3hrs each day camping the VT zone line with my 63 beast and 62 cleric killing single mobs with no drops. Finally after much frustration I employed the help of a 70 Warrior and 71 necro from my guild. After 6 hrs and 10 mob pulls I had all four fragments, 3 from VT zone line and last from wizard port. I'm guessing I caught the drop rate on a good day, or luck was on my side. Either way, Thanks Gymiee (70 Warrior) and Quazit (71 Necro) Guild-Pure Carnage-of the 7th Hammer. Couldn't have gotten it done w/o you guys. Good luck to all in search of your clicky rez.

I guess I need to try some of these other places I read about in this thread.... Wish me luck, seems I'm going to need it... lol 8~}>>

After inlisting a little help, I got 1 fragment in like 10 min.... it must be that you need to kill a lot faster than a cleric can

Camped a few different spots, got all 4 to drop in 1 spot but thats only because i spent 7/8 the time in that area. i dont remember location, it was somewhere near OT zoneline, but just pick a spot lots of mobs are and go to town. took 6-8 hours of mass killing with 75 necro to get all 4 to drop. definitely not as boring as lord grimblox, but atleast with grimblox u could go on 20minute afks or pet camp him with audio trigger while you sleep.

Pain in the neck to get but best drop rate I've found is at the front of VP zone, got 3 in 90minutes as opposed to 1 in 6 days on and off roaming and killing with my 73rd Mage.

This has been nothing but a nightmare. The camps were long and starting it at level 56 made the begining of this boring. If I was to reccomend it to the younger clerics, start young to where you still get exp and when you get older finish it then it all comes around. I have only collected 1 shard todate and have killed about 250 mobs.

Alrighty.. I been camping every where in this zone.. i had to have cleared half of the zone. Killed near VP entrance, at wizzy port in, OT Line, BW Line... all the SW corner. At one point, I was kiting 7 unsnared mobsat a time while pet killed em off 1 by one with cleric healing... not so easy when I'm boxing the two. Past 3 - 4 days, I haven't seen a single one of these. Why is everything for the cleric epic such a damned long camp? Lol. 9 hours for Bergurgle, 7 hours for Gimblox, 19 hours for Zordak Ragefire... at least I know this is worth it. There is almost always a shaman and/or druid soloing here... I ask them to OOC if they se eany, no response. Apparently my necro pet doesn't kill fast enough for me to receive them. Officially seeking help for getting these on the Fennin Ro server, contact Krosar or Qadyeniel. Please god... I will let you watch me duo Zordak with necro/cleric. It'll be a blst. ^_^

We was taking down 6 mobs at a time and parked ourselves at VP zone( due to the pathing issue making all mobs walk in single file line across zone) ( Xeg-Zeb server) Long story short 3 days 9 total hours and hundreds of dead mobs not 1 pearl frag :(

I was duoing with my ranger and cleric for this and had 3 drop for me in 4 hours. During that time 1 cleric got his last 3 drops and another got 2 more. 9 drops total in 4 hours is nice. I am guessing that either we had a string of luck or they changed the drop rate? Next day I logged in and got the last in 15 minutes. # were off wurms and 1 off a bottomless type mob. I wasn't fighting cromodrac cause they kept dispelling all my buffs.

I've been so lucky with these.. actually, i've been so lucky with my whole epic... Took less than 3 days ! I got three shard drops all from mobs around the wiz port in.. in less that 2 hours, and i OOCd in zone for drops, and a low 40s gruop XPing near BW zone in had one drop too... WOOT ! I'm not kidding, less than 2 hours for all 4, I'm guessing Sony upped their drop rate..

Just finished for my alt cleric.

Didn't keep exact track, but took maybe 25 total hours, spread out over six days. All drops from right outside OT zone in. Also spent a fruitless day in upper NE corner of zone before switching.

Got fourth fragment this morning (30 min or so and 20ish mobs.)

Total mobs killed: estimated 425. (+/-20)

Three drops off wurms (1 old wurm, 2 normal) and 1 wyvern. Also farmed feasters and some chromadics, but no drops from them.)

Did also miss out on a fragment halfway to BW. It rotted before I could switch to alt and get over there.

Plus side: got a ton of spells, enough research pages to raise my skill level about 5 points, and made about 1500 plat.


Good luck to you, much patience is required.

Not sure if this got nerfed or what. Decided it was time for my cleric to have his sprinkler <he was getting too envious of others walking around brandishing theirs>. Had some time to kill this morning, so I took my shaman (61) and my Necro (56) to Skyfire Mtns. Parked it on the side of the wall and started slowing, crippling, send in pets, dot, dot, dot, dot. Sit back and watch the mobs die. Even the Chromodrac's weren't a problem (they love to dispell). Got all 4 shards in less than 3 hours...

Hmmm..... thought this was going to be a bit harder?
But then, I'm only starting the epic, so who knows....

Thought I'd post my experience with this so far. I have seen three drop. All were in the north east corner (at the succor point). Two dropped from bottomless mobs, 1 from chromatic. I have tried camping all other areas of the zone for hours at a time with no luck. Good luck, this is definately the bottleneck for the epic

UPDATE:
I just found my forth one from another bottomless. Each drop was about an hour and half apart.

# Apr 24 2005 at 4:29 PM Rating: Decent
Spent 7 hours camping for 1 of these today. Finally got one 30 minutes after camping the north of the zone. Very easy kills, but had a group to kill em faster. Finally dropped of "a skyfire drake". was DB to me (Lvl 62 beast).

Thought I'd never see one. I'd just spent 13 hours camping lord Begurgle for my Mrs, so I wasn't happy, as we only needed one more.

My advice is camp the north of the zone where the mobs are harder and are more likely to hae one. The mobs at the entrance to skyfire, did not drop any in 7 hours of chain pulling.
uncommon???? VERY FIN RARE!!

Been out for 7 days so far and have got a total of 3 to drop, TON of spells and 8 immortal book drops. This is insanely rare for some reason.

Went to Skyfire today dual boxing with my 51 cleric and 56 bard. In less than 2 hours I received the following:

- 5 Pearlescent Fragments
- 1 Immortals (Monk Epic)
- 1 Spell: Wake of Karana
- 1 Spell: Form of the Howler
- 1 Spell: Bristlebane's Bundle
- 1 Spell: Reckoning

I'm not greedy. I was trying get a monk and another cleric from my guild to get one of the shards and the book but no one could come and there was no one else was in the zone. The fifth shard rotted and I ended up looting the book to see if I can MQ it for a guild member. At the speed that the items were dropping I didnt bother to right down which mobs dropped what. It was Christmas, Easter, New Years, and my birthday all rolled into one.

Finally got one of these damned things took about 2 hours was a mage myself and another cleric killing...then the mage had to go so we never got another one....mainly because clerics just dont have the dps to solo and kill enough mobs to get them.....killed just over 100 mobs to get 1.

Day 3 two more dropped. So far all three have droped from drakes. I got these two from AE'ing the place with the help of a 67 wizzy and a 70 druid.
Day 4 got my last one WOOT (from wurm), After four days this is what i learned.
Get some beer,a cartoon of smokes, the local pizza delivery number, and a good chair , your gona be here a while. its all luck of the draw, they are really rare drops and very random,
My only words of advice are , relax ,dont let it get to ya ,they will drop , it just takes time.
GOOD LUCK

Okies. day 1 thought i would try the zone for XP with my 44 cleric and some friends, I was not looking for these yet. WOW one dropped in about 3 mins after started off a drake.
I spent the rest of the day there pulling non stop , not one seen any where.
Day 2 this is hr 6 with a grp im level 47 and still no drop.
Nice xp at lower 40's but the drop rate is pure crap. I will post again when i get the last three and give details. Norath needs more epiced clerics
