Dropped two today, i could not believe it. this is eighth time he has been killed in my presence and he finally drops it (X 2). Thanks to Gaggrog and Pamilu (Legacy of the Ravens) for their help.

Just looted this from Talendor on Stromm, Jan 10th at 9:25 AM mountain time. ;)

Having participated in taking down Tal twice and Sev once, I was convinced that I would NOT get my drop unless I was allowed to get the kill tag (which I hadn't previously)... so I asked my friends to stop attacking once he hit 1%. They actually stopped at 10% and let me take him down. Was a good time.

The book was sitting there waiting for me on the 6th loot slot.

Many much happiness.

killed 4 of the cold dragons (Faydedar and Gorenaire) and had 5 torn frost covered books drop (yes that's right 4 kills, 5 book). killed 6 of the fire dragons (Severilous and Talendor) and had 1 torn burnt book drop. apparently the burnt book is a rare drop but the frost book is common.

Killed him last week on Xegony server. Zoned into EJ and was surprised to see him up. Was amazed when he dropped 2 burnt books, 4 spells, green scale, and treasure hunters satchel. Either we were extremely lucky or they finally made the books drop more because the drop rate was ridiculously low.

Killed Severilous and Talendor within an hour of each other for me and another pally. We both have the frost covered book he won the roll on Sev's book and Tale did not drop one. But he has some kills done for the 1.5 prequest so he may MQ it. But 2 lvl 70 ep geared pallys should be able to duo either we had a few others who helped but it would have been doable.

I don't actually think this drops of Nag when higher levels kill him, i started my epic rather late and have seen from informatin below(thanx btw) & from others on my server the Sev is the best hope, some other classes on the server have one from killing it but no pally in group, that is mainly due to them being MQable. Or unless ofcourse your on FV then go simply buy it.

I know this is a very old post but thought Id let ya know I just disproved it. Just killed Naggy with a 52 SK, 52 Zerker, 2 lvl 52 mercs and to boot I had a lvl 76 mage hiding around the corner with the lvl 76 pet attacking dragon. He did in fact drop the book in the 6th loot slot.

Not sure about naggy really, in my naggy/vox days i only saw the book drop 1 out of every 4-5 times or so. However, some friends of mine and I were killing Sev a while back and had 3 books drop. We had not one pally there lol. A few of us officers looted them because they can be mq'd. Point is yes after 52 the dragons are higher lvl, but not really harder becuase you will progress and lvl yourself to balance that. I wouldn't suggest to ANYONE to wait at lvl 52 for epic drops, it can be done post 52. In this particular situation make friends with pre-epic warriors. =) I still have that dumb book in my bank taking up space heh.

I decided to go with a few of my friends... well they where healing the low lvls ( some were alts, and they where two boxing ). Needless to say I tell my wife she needs to go to get this damn book, cause I solo'ed sir lucan for her, and she got her soulfire, she got her Ghoulbane, and she was there...Well at the end of the fight ( and 5 wipes ) he decides to take a swim in the lava! Well she made 3 or 4 trips in that lava looking for him, cause the looter didn't call if anything was left... Naggy didn't drop it !!! This book should drop everytime, or at least be common round every other time.
Why is this in the updated bin?

Why is this in the updated section? I don't see any different mobs it drops off of or any change in its NO DROP status. ???

Torn Burnt Book

This is the Nagafen part of the Book of Scale. However, it is a fallacy to say that it is dropped off of "Multiple Creatures" as written here. This leads one to believe that other mobs in Sol B can drop it. The only mob that drops it in Sol B is Nagafen. I've heard Ragefire, but I've never seen it. I've only ever seen it drop off of Nagafen, Talendor, and Severillous.

The reason it states that the book is multiple creatures is because Gorenaire drops this also, though neither him or Nagafen are listed here. It's part of the trivial loot code whether Negafen drops this or not. Lv 53+, not a chance.

Best to get this early when the loot code works in your favor. A lot easier than keeling Gore Smiley: grin .

No, Gore Dose not drop this Book. Nagafen, Talendor, and Ragefire do. Gore drops the Frozen book.

Yes this book IS part of the book of scale and yes it IS dropped off of multi mobs. Trust me though, if you exceed lvl 52 without getting this off of naggy, you'll have a much harder time getting this book because it drops off of higher level dragons. There is at least one other one that i know of, Faydedar (sp). He is in the ocean of tears and a guildy of mine saw him drop half a guild in 1 minute and he ate the rest of em as they were running away. Vox' book is the other part of the book of scale and it too drops off of other dragons. Gorenaire in the Dread Lands also drops the torn frozen book, but she is a hell of a lot tougher then Vox.
Hope this helps.

P.S. You can turn in both parts of the book of scale and 1kpp in Qeynos now. Before, you had to take them to Neriak.
