In namelessness they are the

Darkness within darkness.
The gate to their mystery.

The immortals do not go forth
All comes to them.
They are like the ocean, the

By staying beneath they are a

They do nothing.

I feel confident in saying that this cannot drop off "a mature wurm". Magelo has no recorded loots from a mature wurm, and a mature wurm also spawn by the bucketloads - I've seen as many as 6 up at once - while all the other mobs listed are rare, and typically only up one at a time.

Followed the list of mobs, used my ranger Box to track/kill them. Popped a few Fabled Black Scar's back to back, they didnt drop it, ended up getting it off the "a soul devourer" like my 20th kill in.

I've been in Skyfire for days now, looking for this book, I've gone through the cycle more than a few times, killed every named multiple times, slaughtered dozens of mature wurms and soul devourers, went up three levels, and still no book. WTF!

I did, however, get my butt kicked by The Fabled Black Scar.

10 minutes and done. Book. Don't even remember what it dropped from but think it was a Wurm.
Don't forget to look behind you......

Off wandering wurm. Spent a good 4-5 hours killing. Probably best to stick to killing the named spawns in the cycle posted below. I had a feeling this wurm had it because he was abnormally hard to hit; way more misses than on similar mobs.

I got the book today off Black Scar. Being a Monk with no tracking, I simply ran all over Skyfire and killed hundreds of mobs, mainly going after mature wurms and of course all the named and relatively rare mobs listed here as dropping the book. Got the book after around two hours of killing. Also ran into and killed Talendor while I was there :).

The mobs that drop this are the same ones you would kill to make Felia Goldenwing spawn for the enchanter epic. Get a tracker and kill:
a soul devourer
a shadow drake
a wandering wurm
a wurm spirit
Guardian of Felia
Black Scar
Faerie of Dismay

Leave Felia up if she spawns so that an enchanter has the chance to charm and turn in (I had to camp her all day). The mobs spawn every 30 seconds to 2 minutes and are normally trackable from atop the volcano near the Burning Woods zone but can stray farther north. In the 10 hour process of trying to spawn Felia, about 5 or more of these books dropped.

I know its been confirmed several times, but site hasnt been updated yet so Ill comfirm once again: The book Immortals drops off a shadow drake... Dropped for me today.
Skyash Drake
# May 04 2006 at 9:58 PM Rating: Decent
Had a Druid track and kill each of the named listed... 2 straight kills of "a shadow drake" dropped Immortals both times. So "a shadow drake" does drop immortals, may have been lucky on it who knows :)

Edit: Bah! messed up subject line... meant a shadow drake lol!

Edited, Thu May 4 21:53:43 2006
shadow drake also carries it
