So after looking around. ALOT. And no useful information here (as usual) pertaining to exactly where the oxide spawns on the ground. I have these Loc's to share.

#1 These three cogs on the ground have spawns on, around, or inside of them. 1488 -1401 2

#2 The 4 pillars outside mino cave. One ground spawn on each side. 1250 -1580 17

Can confirm that both Iron Oxide and Russet Oxide are ground spawns around the cogs outside the mino cave... I can also say that both appear as large oval gravel chunks and occur most frequently on the gears/tower themselves. As far as the respawn time, I do not know, as within a 10 minute period I had 6+ of each which was all I needed for safe creation of monk epic parts. Happy Hunting!

Lavastorm is probably one of the worst spots tioo.
It seems to be much more common in the Hole.
Not that it's more common, but that it drops off so many mobs in the zone.

A Stonegrabber in Marus Seru - 4
A Weathered Stonegrabber in Marus Seru - 1.
In about 2 hours of hunting.
I'm getting kind of lucky at "guessing" which stonies have the loot, but it's pure luck, it can drop from any type of stonegrabber of any level in Marus Seru. All of the mobs in the zone seem to wander quite far, I've followed a stonie from near the Netherbian Lair zone-in almost to the southwest corner where the Recuso Smugglers are, so I wouldn't expect a camp spot or a spawn point to find them at.
Currently selling for 60 - 75pp on Stromm if you can believe it. Too bad the Charcoal and Russet Oxide don't sell for the same.... I'd be twinked beyond belief!
P.S. Like Ragik said a looooong tiem ago Iron Oxide = Rust!!!

why do these sell for so much? along time ago, maybe a year, i was hunting in steamfont waiting for a rare spawn killing elementals and they dropped these no prob, i just let them rot, all of a sudden i saw these later for so much and im like, ok? why dont they just kill elementals, havent killed any latly so maybe they made the drop rare or something, but i could have been making big bucks:(

These Used to be worth about 2pp. Then the new pottery items came out that use Divine Crystalline glaze. Most notably, the goldent idols, and faithstones/spiritstones. When these first came out, the drop rate on iron oxides was low, these were rare, and the demand for golden idols was high (since they are used in the solstice earring quest, which has Flowing Thought 1, as an effect). The price quickly shot up to 1kpp per iron oxide. However, SOE changed the drop of iron oxides. It used to be that you could only get them in a few locations. Steamfont (groundspawns, and dropped by elementals), najena, Nagafen's lair and the hole. NOW, elementals everywhere in Norrath and on Luclin drop these, and the drop rate has been increased. On my server (Rodcet Nife) the value of these has fallen to about 50pp. They are NO LONgER rare. as a nice side effect, the cost of golden idols has dropped to under 1500pp. :)

Dunno about before recently, but the drops off elementals and stonegrabbers have become rare, if not on the boarderline of becoming very rare. SOE might have nerfed the drop rate, or people used it as vendor food. Who knows. I just want to be able to sell mine for 750pp again :(

Due to heavy farming of the creatures that drop these, the price in bazaar has dropped hellaciously. The lowest price today was 75pp. The average was between 150-250, kinda like the HQ Lion Skins. Just a heads up in case you've got plans for ubercoin.

Had about 4 of em drop off of Fire and Earth Elementals in The Twilight Sea. Previous post stated that they don't drop there, but I had got a few during my 4 hours while hunting. I have heard that the drops have been increased in varying zones due to public outcry from EQ players, so it may have been changed in the recent months. I'm not certain it it drops off of the other elementals...

Sell in bazaar. It takes time, but if you can keep a trader up overnight or during the day (while at work/school), you should have no problem selling it. 800pp - 1000pp is a good price range. I have sold around 25 of these, most for over 900pp.

Hunting in Najena last night, I looted this off the corpse of an earth elemental there. Not a difficult kill, but can be a pain if you get swamped by 3 or 4 of them at once, even with pet!

Najena seems to have become a popular place to farm this (does anybody ever bother going into Najena to kill, say, Najena anymore?) Najena is usually empty except for people hunting spell components or farming iron oxide. Probably the easiest place to get this (though still rare).

In addition to being ground spawn in steamfont, it drops off of earth elementals and less often steam elementals. Rare drop though. The Fae Drakes are phs for the earth elementals. Also, "ground spawn" should not be taken literally. It may be found on the side of any metal thing in the vicinity of the Minotaur Cave, as well as on the ground.

Anyone know what the respawn time is on these ground spawns? I came into the zone and found none on or near the metal surfaces where I previously have. Nobody else was in the zone, but I figured someone might've come through recently, so I waited 20 minutes or so, but nothing. I wondered whether maybe it only shows up after a rain, but alas Wake of Karana only lets me stop rain, not start it!

I recently found this on the ground, in Steamfont. It looks like a black loop with red dots and can be spotted fairly easily. I know it spawns in random spots, but just for some information I found mine near the mechanical guard inside that little pit that he stays in way back near the minotaur cave. I did some research and was told that it is also used for the Protection of the Glades quest. I also found about the price of the item, and I was told the price of it on Luclin server as of today ranges from 200-1000pp.

Sadly, I can actually imagine someone paying 1000pp for this item. All of the combines it is used for are low-risk, so you would really only need one for any given item, and the golden idol of tunare can sell for as high as 5k.

Incidentally, the quest is the Protection of the Cabbage, which returns a very nice earring, and a no drop spell called, oddly enough, Protection of the Cabbage. Level 59 druid spell, single-target version of the level 60 group spell, Protection of the Glades (hence the confusion).

Iron oxide is also used in pottery to make range slot deities for specific religions. It's the only way currently to advance beyond 188 in pottery.

Yes, they can be used to stain armor too. But wasting something this rare on twink aestethics would make me cry. :(

Note: the elementals in Lavastorm, Najena, and Steamfont can also drop this. Very rarely, but they do.

No longer true... I'm not going to list them all here, but there's many new pottery recipes between 188 and 250 now. Would suggest casserole dishes to 199 then opal encrusted steins to 222 before doing something expensive as golden idols. Check http://www.eqtraders.com for details on pottery recipes.

Along with the latest batch of new recipes to be patched into the game, there's one for a "casserole dish" that trivials at 199. So, if you're a potter who plans on skilling up into the GM range (like me), you don't have to start rooting around for Iron Oxide *just* yet, hehe.

1 large block of clay + casserole dish sketch + water flask + ceramic lining (and then fired with 1 HQ firing sheet) = casserole dish (trivial 199)

'Hope this helps.
