got two off spiders

Started killing spiders around zone-in. Probably killed close to 10 then I crossed that river that's to the right side if you are standing in the graveyard and facing the zone-out building, and got TWO strands off two spiders in my first little pull of four spiders. Now, I am sure it was just random and I sincerely doubt there is a better chance of the strand dropping on the other side of the river, but if you aren't having luck around zone-in or need some more spiders to kill you can try your luck on the other side of the river.

I can confirm what is being said here. I got mine after reading the post and killing 5 spiders. Across the river right of the zone in. As is most the case the harder spots is where the drops occur more often. Thank you for the post! :-)

Dropped off a virulent arachnid in Plane of Nightmare after about 100 spider kills. The mob that dropped the strand seemed to be a little tougher than the regular mobs, maybe just coincidence.

Just got this drop off of a virulent hatchling in PoN. Very rare as I've only seen 2 drop in 3 days.

This dropped off of "a virulent arachnid" in PoNightmare. I had never seen this drop in PoN until tonight. Oddly, I haven't seen any ooze drop yet.

Frustration

Just thought I would peek back in and share my frustration. I see the posts that say 20 kills and I see the post that says up to 40 kills... I am getting close to the 40 mark. I have gone from 53 to 54 kitting these pile's of bile and not a drop yet. I will however add in the hopes that it helps a fellow bard that if you are camping the area close to the castle against the wall and you use Selo's Song of Travel to search for bile invis, BEWARE. There is a single spider that can see through invis. None of the other ones can, just this specific one. I leaned the hard way after it rooted me, the root broke my invis and I had 6 mobs on me instantly ... Needless to say I died. I assumed that all spiders could not see through invis, but this particular one can. He roams across the river to a rock and then back.

Spawn point for these guys

Hey, I've gone to POD with some guildies to camp this piece. and in teh past 2 weeks we've been doing it something very strange has happened. There are no mobs anywhere near the wall and the river between bone wall and ZI. nothing on track either. i ran around invis and saw absolutely nothing! my friend ran around without invis and must have triggered a trap or something cause 4 mobs poped on top of him. but never repoped at the point in the hour we were there. either there is a bug or they updated the zone, cause we cant find them with our eyes or on track. Any help on this would be appreciated.

this is because of the new collision problems, mobs have problems walking up hills so as they are wandering they go into the river, and cant get back up out. what i do is levitate and sow my monk run and over the top of the river. you will agro alot of mobs then run on to dry land after you've agrod alot of mobs, kite them around on dry land until all mobs have made it out of the river then FD, the mobs will wander off again and then you can follow the ones you want and pull them. rinse and repete as needed.

Piles of Bile drop these. they are near river. a good place is between the bonewall and zone in along zone wall. The drop rate is not good however so be prepared to stay for a while, unless you get lucky...
WTF???

Greetings,

Man, I have camped these things for 3 days straight now and all I have to show for it are 2 AA's. I guess that's something though. /shrug

Common Drop

I saw 3 of these drop from killing 4 pile of biles. I may have just had a lucky streak. Does anyone else have information on the frequency of the drop?
Also, we killed other types of goos, but only the pile of bile dropped the strands.

Good luck, folks! I hope that I helped, now on to get the other Talisman drops.

I've done this quest myself and helped a few friends. Creeping silk strands dropped off a pile of bile.

For myself I soloed it and got it in about 20 kills. The two people I helped to get it, it took about 15-40 kills each. Definately not common.

Does anyone think it's odd that the creeping silk strand drops from oozes in PoDisease and the congealed bile-based ooze drops from spiders in PoNightmare?

Aye, popular belief is that they accidently switched loot tables, oh well, not like it makes the quest harder/easier. I'd be suprised if they fixed it at this point, not a big deal.

Creeping silk strand drops from an ooze (only as far as I am aware but it may be any of the ooze types?) and they drop uncommonly.
what mob(s)??

Please post what the item dropped from. Its not much of a spoiler if you only send in half the info. I would assume that like the two items from PoI, it can drop randomly from most any mob in the zone, but does anyone know if that holds true for this item from PoD?

Spiders in PoI drop the casing, and "models" drop the size c spring.

they are not random drops throughout the zone on any mob.

just like PoD, the "a pile of bile" is the only thing that can drop the strands.
