They must have changed the rarity of this stuff, because I was able to get a lot of it in a short time.

I started in DL, and set out to get a stack of Drachnid Slik. I usually got some kind of slik to drop. When my quota was filled, I eneded up with 24 Drachnid Silks and only 16 spider silks.

I am not sure if this was the result of it being Everquests' birthday, but well see how it

It seemed to Drop more in DL than in FV we where getting 2 - 3 per kill in DL. It was simple with the 3 web camps. Empty one camp move on to the next.

Also drops from Queen Dracnia in Crystal Caverns.
Drop nerfed?

Just killed a pile of these bugs in both FV and DL, and got nothing but Spider Silk.

Spider silks galore in FV. DL has both, about a 3:1 ratio in favor of unleaded silks. Good drop rate, though.

In 30 minutes of chain killing all kinds of drachnids in FV I got spider silk only also, and foraged just 1 in that time. Moving to DL I got both kinds of silk in north east corner from various spider types, around 30% drachnid silk, 70% regular spider silk.

I killed only till I had enough drachnid silk to make a set of Symbols, so this drop rate might not show the average rate though.

Think it's pretty lame of them to change the drop rates because they actually made the drachnid silks used for something. I remember trying to farm silks and get xp off these guys would spend hours here and only see drachnid silks drop. Especially in FV.

Drachnid Silk Swatches are used in the new silk expert symbols from Dragons of Norrath.

Aside from them being used in the DoN Tailored augs, they are also used in various tailored cultural armors.

I've foraged this in Burning Woods also. It's stackable, 0.1 stone WT, and TINY size. I don't recall it being able to sell to merchants once upon a time, but that was years ago. Goes for 2 sp 4 cp each. A little extra change to buy your Iron Rations if you get a stack of these perhaps on a forager.

Ok....Yeah, prob is a waste of time BUT what gets me is for as "Old world" as this stuff is you would think Allak would have gotten something by now. Put 2 of the Drachnid silks together in a sewing kit and you get Dracnid silk swatch(not a typo, there is not an "H" in the return). We'll see where it goes from here now....more to follow later.
Don't forget to look behind you......
