We are collecting 2 or 3 an evening in from the masons and rebuilders. Most of my guildies have the whole set, now it just takes forever to get up to warmly to turn them in.

In about 9 hours of fighting in the same area I've always fought, have seen about 5 of these drop!!!! So, 100+ hours with ZERO dropping, droprate fixed in patch, and then 9 hours with 5 dropping! WOOT! Sporting my new Belt of Melded Scales as we speak!

I wish I had your luck.

I spent about 8 hours on the second/third floor yesterday clearing girplans, and never saw a single one drop :( My guild is starting to think I'm insane for living there for that long.

Increase the drop rate of the Harbingers Spires Blueprints!

As you can see from my posts below, I'm doing a bit of lobbying to get the droprate of the Harbingers Spires Blueprints increased. I'm guessing that the current droprate is a mistake and a simple oversight. As I have stated, repeatedly, it is time for timesinks like this to be removed from the game to keep it viable in the face of stiff competition from other companies.

Please go to this post ( http://eqforums.station.sony.com/eq/board/message?board.id=Live&message.id=3492#M3492 ) in the Official EQ forums and post a reply in support of increasing this drop rate if you, too, have been a "victim" of this oversight (way too low droprate)!

Thank you, friends!

Ok I had a theory on this and it worked I might just be real lucky but who knows. I have spent last several months in HS off and on working on this quest. I finally decided sony might have gotten smart and things would only drop after quest had been triggered so I tried just that. I went through all the dialogue with Blodakan then proceeded directly too HS to builder grobbs room 2nd kill motar dropped 5th BAM blue prints I about went into shock. Im max ally on DL faction who know for sure just putting in my 2 cents. Needless to say I finally got rid of that soothsayers belt. BTW drop was off of a girplan mason.

I give up. Have killed hundreds of Girplan. Have seen all the other pieces drop several times. This one is just stupid rare or no longer exists. Talked to other people that have hunted here a lot, they have never seen one either and had to give up the quest.

Gang, I'm in the same boat! A core group in my guild have killed thousands of the "Masons" and "Stonelifters" along with a ton of the named, Girplan Architect. We have yet to see a single one of these drop! Every one of us has all of the other pieces needed and are just waiting (praying, begging, etc.) for these to drop with some reasonable frequency.

Please join me by submitting /feedback about this abysmal drop rate. For the reward, this much of a timesink is a soul-sapping waste. In a time when EQ is seeing more and more competition from other games, and specifically from OTHER manufacturers, the time to eliminate these needless timesinks is here.

Please type /feedback in game and complain about this drop rate. You can also send e-mail to eqfeedback@soe.sony.com, eqbugs@soe.sony.com, and eqtesting@soe.sony.com.

Thank you for your assistance!!!

OK friends, I posted my gripe in the Tech. Support section of the Official EQ boards. I don't think that's the right forum for it, but I couldn't ascertain where it should go. With that in mind, it may be moved to a more appropriate forum. Still, this link should work. Please go there and weigh in by posting a reply in support of increasing the drop rate of the Harbingers Spires Blueprints. Doing so might actually get this timesink reduced. Thank you!

I'm well into the hundreds of kills here myself. I have been camping the first room on the left on the second floor of the spires with the masons, stonelifters, and Foreman Guppu in it.

I have also spoken to several others who have camped this often but have gotten no drop as of yet. I have not found anyone who has seen this drop recently.

I suppose that it's possible that Harbingers Spire Blueprints are bugged and not dropping. Has anyone seen one of these drop recently? If so, which specific mob dropped it (name and location of the mob)?

Cheers,
-Sububer

Same here. I've been killing these every chance I get for over a month and still no drop. They are decent AA but I'm really getting tired of this spot. Hours upon hours solo and grouped, well over 500 girplans and still no drop. I sent a feedback here as well.

Finally got two of these to drop, one for each of my toons. I duoed most of the time up in the Prime Mover area. But sometimes I'd hit the other girplans just for a change. It took 20 hours of camping for the first to drop, and another 20 for the second. Looks like the plans drop about 1 in 500 girplans.
Stupid Rare or Broken?

Is there a trick to getting these things to drop!
I read the posts here and thought upwards of 200 girplans without seeing the drop would be a harsh camp.
I have killed going on for 1000 of these in group and solo. Still not dropped. In group we do the 2nd floor girplans (Foreman Guppu room) and the one on the floor below. When solo, I just do the latter. I have seen quite a few of all the other bits, including the sliver of wood.
Two things keep me going:
1) I get 3%AA per mob solo
2) I have seen it drop with my own eyes on the first floor (the one I solo). I lost on a 50/50 roll with a guildy that time.

I am now wondering if the blueprints can only be in existence on 1 mob, so if they are up they will not appear again till those are looted. Highly unlikely I know but 1000 mobs and still no drop?? I jumped in after the patch (15/12)in the hope I would get lucky on the server reset. 100 Girplans later and nothing.

Any suggestions. Please post if you have seen these drop either just before the patch, or since it.

Got to approaching 1300 girplans now - still no Blueprints!
I have tried three Girplan rooms (1st floor - no named, 2nd floor - Foreman Guppa room, 3rd floor - The Prime Mover room).
Solo: Usually do the 1st floor as it's easier to break. Repops 20 mins. Sometimes do 3rd floor (stick to 3 non-named - repop is about 5 mins!)

Still; getting plenty of aa and the occassional nice augment, but overall getting pretty bored now!

Finally got my set last evening off of a Architect. Drops a +25 hp aug also. I am begining to think this is a Ultra rare drop off of any Girplan.

I have also killed over 200 Masons with no drop. Seems that either the drop is broken or that this item is far from common.

Had Harbingers Spire Blueprints drop off a A Girplan Mason in the room that Foreman Guppu spawns in. To get to the room go up 2 flights of the stone stairs, take the ramp towards the middle and it is the first room on the left. Took us two nights of killing here before they dropped.

Killed a hundred at least of the masons and even more of the stonelifters. Maybe 12 rebuilders and a few named. No drop yet. Not even any other part of the quest drops...

Common ? I think not......
