no luck with bandits

ok. i have spent days killing bandits with no luck. i am inclined to believe that the bandits do not drop the shard. if someone did get one, they either caught a glitch or it was a one in a million drop. i will update once i do the shiknars.

i went back the next night and killed only the warriors, priest, and royals. i got two shards in 4 spawns. much faster way to get them. i am now viewed threatingly now but oh well. two more to go before i work on the dragon kills.

bandits are a waist of time

Ok I never found a single shard on one of the bandits of any kind never not one. Cleared all 4 camps least 5 times. We also did the royal shiknar's the warriors and the royals where the only drops we ever found and the named shiknar so my advice to you is stay there and kill nothing but them never saw a shard on the bandits. We did get povar fluid from there and some nice lower lvl caster rings
Drops off Shadel Bandits

Was surprised as heck. Duo'ing with another beast the two camps above the underbulk/mutant dreg area and had 3 shards drop. Didn't have Identify available, but I figure it's the DAT shard that drops off Shik'Nar.

And yes, this is the No-Drop Lucid Shard, not the Staff Shard of Luclin used in TSes.

DOHT! Post title should read "ALSO DROPS OFF(...)" don't want to give impression it ONLY drops off Shadel Bandits.

After several camps, I finally got it just a while ago. But not just one, 2 of them from royal guards (both of them). My guildie ran and got the second one.

70 beast with decent gears and aa's could easily solo both the royal room and the next room for a total of 2 royal guards, a royal advisor, and 3 or 4 warriors.
Facton hits

A word of caution: killing the Priest and the Soldiers seems to cause only very small faction hits, but the Royal Guards give MASSIVE hits - 4 of those was sufficient to go from Apprehensive to Threatening (KoS) - a range of at least 650 pts. So, if you plan to do this for multiple people, try and avoid the royals. I got mine from a Warrior in any case.
got it

I was lucky to be only apprehensive to the skik'nars. I happened to find the camp where they hang out, there was a tunnel, I went into the tunnel and in the cave at the end were two shik'nar warriors. I stood behind one and killed him didnt get aggro till he started leaving but np I just fd'd. Killed the second one and he dropped the shard. good luck

I'm a 67 Shaman with bazaar level gear and 90 AA. Soloed this camp. Had no problem clearing the priest, warriors and royals before respawn. All single pulls except the royals. Rooted one and the other came. Slowed him, then the rooted one. Kept Spirit of Leopard on pet and everything fell pretty quick.

Got lucky and had shard drop from the 2nd Royal who was the last mob of my first clearing of the camp. Killed the priest when he popped 1 minute later then gated.

Woot!! I'm done with all my shards.

Seriously, Sony has effed up the drop rate on this. 66 druid here that solo's the 2 spawn and 1/2 of the spawn by the priest. the warlord's been up so i can't pull the other 2 warriors. at any rate, i have cleared the 2 camps for hours on end and still have not seen a single shard. not even the akheva shard was this difficult! bastards.

I easily solo this place. your pet is more of a hinderance. Root and rot. Having your Ldon Horror or even better Dark Nightmare helps a lot. They have very low resists.. not a bad camp.. just mind numbing and slow.

We spent about 3 hours killing the warriors and 4 of these droped, enough for 1 apiece for a group of 4. Awsome XP while killing there, the warriors were conning DB to a lvl 70 RNG. I picked up lvl 61 and got half way through an AA :) I plan on doing much killing here for XP and shards.

Some people go through life wondering if they ever made a difference in the world, the Marine's don't have that problem.

Did this solo with 67 wizard. go to room with Warlord Tt'kk'tt'hik find a spot near big rock, kill one (hardest one since you got little room) then kill another then after that you got all the room you need to root/snare/blast. took 1/2 manabar to kill casters full manabarr to kill warriors.

I just got my shard with 3 people (65+63 paladin and a 65 ench). We did 2 cycles of the 2 pop warriors. I found easiest way to pull them is to stand in the back corner, pull him to you. No adds. We then moved to the 4 pop area with the Priest. The first kill dropped the shard! So we were in and out in less than an hour!

I was helping a guildie get fungus grove shard for vt key. We were camping the 4 warriors outside royals room. We killed the priest mostly for fun and it dropped shard!

Solo Camp
# Aug 08 2004 at 1:05 PM Rating: Decent
I'm 65 druid, and have been solo camping the two warriors just as you come in. Easy camp, and boring as heck, but pretty nice exp btw.

I set up in the corner. Root the first and as long as he doesn't move you won't aggro the second. Looks too close but did it many times and no aggro from other. Root/Rot till he dies.

They spawn in 24 min 30 sec, so you got time to pull a couple soldiers in between. I was getting almost 3/4 blue per warrior and half blue from the soldiers...not bad for lazy camp. Make sure you keep them snared, if they walk a couple feet you will have plenty company...he he...not the kind you like, either.

Loc of my camp was pos 1531 pos 1433.

I did have some problems when in wolf form, so I'd recommend no wolfie... maybe it was just me but happened quite a few times. Spells mysteriously interrupted with no move, and spells that wouldn't cast for no good reason till you move and other normal Sony stuff...

These guys are soloable by a 65 ranger btw. Just read the above post about which to pull first.

I was not in mood to solo around that tight spot, just kept killing the one that hangs by the named big bug. It is kinda by self. Root, Snare, blast, root, blast repeat rinse.

Got after about 15 kills.

Also is dropped by Royal Guards. We camped Warriors and Guards for 2 hours and got 3 shards.

i was in there for 3-4 hours and no drop :( but we just killed the 2 warriors in the back, right when you walk in.. we didn't bother going back further because we only had 3 people with us probably why we waited so long
