Dropped from "a sunstone reaver" goblin on Suncrest Ridge (The Buried Sea zone) island while I was attempting to complete the Suncrest task arc for the Jonas Dagmire hand augment. Was quite a nice surprise.

I have been doing SHIP instance 1 given by Gurtrude the Spymaster for xp and aug drops. In about 200 mob kills give or take 50. Havent kept accurate count. I have gotten 6 porous loams , 1 exquisite spinnerette fluid and 1 exquisite marrow and 1 aug. Seems like a decent drop rate /shrug Oh btw i dont go up the elevator to entrance to solo since thats pretty much suicide hehe i stay at bottom and go around the building and use the drop off with the ladders as a kite point. Hope this helps.
Also drops in The Hive 69.1 Hard

This dropped the other night in The Hive 69.1 Hard spell mission. It's the second one we've gotten from that mission. Very rare drop, but it does show up off the trash shiliskin or deep orc mobs.

To quote "Porous loam from a reaver in Fortress Mechanotus. Very nice 1 porous loam in 36 reaver kills. 4 more to go and done with sublime quest"

Is this item used in a quest ? (as mentioned above in quote) and if it is,
there is nothing mentioned above such as "This item is used in a quest"
It only mentions "used in 122 recipes"
If it is used in a quest, can someone link that here please ?

Greetings, just thought that we could put up a current list KNOWN drops since the patches that have patched the patches to patch the patch.

Please list zone and mob you had a loam drop off of from the dates Jan 22 forward.

I know that what / who the loams are supposed to drop off of, but I would like to see a list of actual drops verified, not by what Sony tells us but what players are experiencing.

Thank you!

Two quotes from the Dev-Ngreth 12/19/07 from http://forums.station.sony.com/eq/posts/list.m?topic_id=125230

Dev-Ngreth wrote:

call it what you want.

There was a BUG where level 80 stuff was dropping where it should not have. That got fixed. It was a BUG.

BUT on the same track...

Yes, the 75 drops of loam/marrow/fluid were reduced, as a general adjustment that we are still continuing to evaluate. The level 75 symbols were too common. It should not be that much easier to get it than the equivalent level 75 rare NPC drops, but it was.


where it should not have? so the sublime and elagant components should not have been dropping in fortress? i mean i can understand not in dragonscale hills, but in fortress up? you might as well just move them to only drop in crystallos then.

honestly, they were just right at the rate they were dropping in fortress. not common, but if you busted your butt all day long, you would most likely get 1, not always, but usuaully. this doesnt even make sense, made the tradeskill items non venderable, and now making them non existent, all this is going to do is make some people VERY VERY rich. i know people that have stocked up on STACKS of fluids/marrows/loams all across servers because they were banking on you nerfing them. Gratz i was wrong, they are rich beyond belief soon. so much being tradeskiller friendly, guess the plat farmers win again.

the Sublime components were NOT supposed to be dropping in the fortress mechanotus zone in anything but the rarest of luck. The elegant is supposed to drop there, and still is. It is just rarer than it used to be. Sublime stuff is intended to drop in the mansion, steam factory, ship workshop and crystalos.

AND

The sublime components may drop outside the zones I listed, but thy only have about a 0.03% chance to drop per kill of appropriate level NPC's I.E. ultra-rare. Within the four zones listed above the chance is way better.

Here's a sneak peek at the Game Update Notes for Wednesday December 12th (Please note that these notes may or may not be changed before the servers open back up)

*** Tradeskills ***

- Cultural metal drops have been adjusted to drop in the proper content now.

This mean they are only dropping in SoF Zones now ?? or they lower drop Rate ?
