it still drops

Just here to confirm it is still dropping as of 30 July 2013.
At a rough estimate of 250 mobs in the zone, I cleared the zone 10 times on the first night without any sign of the mask. Went back the next night and it dropped on my first pull.

Just got it on first pull of yard. I'm shocked.
Makes up for the 70 clears I had to do to get a Feral Guardian Channeler for both toons.
Good times!

Made a comment to a friend about this clicky! So I thought lets do the instance and try get the mask! anyway we died as we tried to pull a massive train! except for my rogue :-) so anyway my friend has to go out after ress to pick up his gf so I start soloing a few on the rogue.

2 kills...

Thank you please.

This dropped to solo 85 wiz with merc after 4 hours of sheer slaughter. Completely wiped the zone first time, got another instance the next day and an hour in dropped from a Champion in very bottom floor of first tower. Now I remember why I hate camping stuff like this...

i have cleared this zone about 8 times total with not a single drop, yet my friend logs on and gets 2 in one day!!! this thing is dumb, unless you really want it i dont suggest farming it. i am medding atm and about to clear some more out but pretty much this is rediculous.
I hate this camp already lol

Yeah...this god **** farming sucks. I've been hear hours now, killing everything in sight; undeads, spiders, werewolves, orcs. Nothing.
They don't call it EverQuest for nothing.
My main is a monk....snaring is a problem, or the lack thereof.
If i'm not paying attention, i start training now. had like 50 orcs kill my merc lol.
another fabulous camp...:P
My suggestion:
If you're after this mask, make sure you have a snare class with you, or some way to snare for yourself. Especially if these mobs are a challenge for you.

Oh, drachnid infiltrator dropped it.

The drop rate on these 'zone wide rares' is disgraceful.

So far I've racked up over 300aa, over 15,000 mobs, 63hrs and I have no idea how many clears top to bottom.

If I wasn't trying to collect every illusion I would walk away.

Bad Sony Bad.

The 'zone wide rare' augs drop more commonly than this.
Still waiting.

i love this thing, used to use it everywhere i whent, shopping, traveling raiding and grouping, even when afk lol,

looking at all the comments this thing is mainly just a random drop. total time i spent in this zone farming it could probably come up to 1 mayby 2 days total.

so than whem me and my bro got bored we whent in with our pocket cleric, and second kill in his first mission it droped.

just mainly shows. random drop.

Solo'd the mission 5 times over the course of two days as a 75 shadowknight. Had two friends help me request it and stay in the task so I could enter. Finally dropped for me on the 5th run right before I was going to call it. It dropped from one of the shadowmane werewolf looking guys on the top of the second obelisk/tower/whatever those buildings are. Didnt see them on the loot list, seems to be true that it is a zone wide drop.

it took me 8 orb dod [normal] missions to get this to drop. i didn't go deep in the hive to kill. all i did was zoned in and cleared the field, exited mission and re grabbed and re killed the field mobs only. i didn't go into the towers, i didn't go on the bridges, i even didn't go to the undead or in the basement. just killed the trash in the field and re-got mission. the masked droped off the first 3 drachs you run into after you zone in at the campfire. good luck. any questions i am on teh trib server.

Took about 3 1/2 hours to get on normal difficulty setting with two people and 1 box. We finally got it to drop in the third tower on the living bridge.

The best way to do this is to have someone AOE and someone else tank. The tank I was with is uber so he was able to heal himself while I threw AOEs all over the mobs.
This still drop?

Dropped May 25, 2007 for my Warrior.

Off a roamer in the field bewteen zone in and the first tower. Best bet seems to be clear all field and restart until you get it.

did one hard mission and then a normal last night with a friend. No luck on the hard and 2 dropped on the normal, guess we were pretty lucky, both got one. And they were both off drachnids in obelisks.

Spent 3 days Soloing this with my 75 wizzy. 2 missions the first day, 3 the second, then got it on my 1st attempt the third day. Dropped off one of the static spawns just outside the 2nd tower for me.
Maybe a clue but still lucky I think

I just got a mask of my very own after 5 attempts, Something I noticed after a death and my computer crashed the zone reset and I almost didnt want to waste the time thinking the zone was probably bugged. But when I came back I noticed something different from all my other attempts. There were an unusual number of roamer near the second tower so I decided to keep going. Low and behold dropped on my last mob on first floor of second tower. It may or may not be of value to anyone but I hope it helps. PS. Very Happy SK here =)

30+ hours and many beers so far. for past 4 days i camped this horrid zone. coa geared 75 rogue and my coa geared 70 cleric and i slaughter these spiders. 8 normal instances so far and not one mask drop. i just kill the feild and the towers and grab a new instance. this must be sonys way of getting even with me after getting halfling mask relativly quick. least im making a lot of aas and plat off vendor trash and pages.
Time wasted.

Got one to drop for me on Dec 7th. Dropped from a drachnid champion in the western tower.

My method was to clear the zone every time I camped for one. Roughly 5 or 6 zone clears I think was the total. So however many mobs that equals.

Finally got mine as well on nov, 13th. I too was one of the unfortunate ones who had to kill millions of spiders and do it thousands of times. usually only got as far as clearin the field and the towers if i was lucky. I just boxed it with a shaman. Dropped in easy off a drachnid Champion. fire and water ele illusions to go =P

Finally got my mask last night after I cajoled a few guildies in coming to help me slaughter the zone. Was planning on doing a full clear as many times as it took last night, but after our GL Xsas pulled about 15 Skinwalkers on us, it finally dropped.

BTW, the theory that it drops only from Drachinds is wrong - mine dropped from a Skinwalker in werewolf form.

I've been camping this thing since it was found... and after 8 months of slaughtering the whole zone, I still have not gotten one to drop. I've cleared every single mob possible and gotten nothing. Heck, I even took a two month break from it cause it was too bloody frustrating.

Been farming this with groups for a about a month. We clear the entire zone every time. The first two weeks we tried it on hard only (for the xp) and got 1 drop out of 18 missions. In the last 2 weeks we did normal, and usually didn't have to clear all of the zone before one dropped. On normal it dropped 8 out of 21 times. It seems to drop MUCH more often in normal than hard. Has anyone else noticed this?
