Bristlebane price

These were selling for 90pp on bristlebane this weekend. However, you will definitely get at least two whacking the constructs on the way down to the gargoyle camp in the hole.

I went home during lunch today and I bought 2 of these in the Bazzar on Terris Thule for 750pp each. Two different vendors. There were four vendors total. One of the other vendors had 4 for 1,000pp each and another had one for 5k.

Now... Did I buy the right one? The image on my screen shows them as round and grey. This does not match the image here on the web site. The ones I have are stackable. When I did a search on Allakhazam, only one link shows up.

Follow the link to the Lucy entry and click History. You will see that on 21st December <some year> the icon was changed.
Ball of Clay

I know the Hole like the back of my hand and I have only seen these drop off the metal constructs. I am a 62 bst and they are relatively easy to solo down in the hole. Just invis past the elementals and go camp by the pool.

Dropped from a Destroyed Construct in The Hole. Looted it with my own two hands.

Aye went down for Ancient Tome of Lost Lore and clay dropped from a destroyed constuct at the first pool room. LOL of course after I paid 20k a piece for 2 of them.

Ok i can confirm in a trip down to kill Kirn today for a shammy friend it did drop. Don't ask me off of what i don't even remember but it sits in my inventory atm and i'm not even elemental flagged so it does drop.

Ok had to go down to the hole again and help my necro friend get another ball of clay. Got it again relatively quick, about 20 minutes. Dropped off of a Destoyed Construct down right inside the city area right before we got to the bank. Its a common mob and i think it was the same mob that dropped it last time, so i'd focus on the golems not on the elementals. My guess is if you bounce around this area and kill the constructs one will randomly drop it.

I did the same thing and camped the hole for clay it no longer drops there. Only way to get it is pay 10k per piece or check vendors in pot and find em for 13pp like I did (lucky lucky)Also imo it is lame that i have to get smithing to 100+ to attemp a no fail combine for the box what the heck does a necro need smithing for..

3 Days and Counting

I've spent the last 3 days in the Hole, and I have yet to see 1 clay ball drop. I don't know if its because I'm lvl 66 and I think it is due to the fact for a split second I see items in the loot window and then it disappears. So take it from me if you are 65 or higher don't bother wasting your time. I cleared all the top and bottom elementals..nothing..heading to PoEa where I know it drops...very very rare but it drops.

This also drops in PoE off the Earthen Crusaders.

No longer drops in The Hole since OoW
# Sep 20 2004 at 5:38 AM Rating: Decent
I just spent a little under 9 hours at the entrance to the hole killing Elemental Warriors and didn't get a single Ball of Elemental Clay. During that time I saw him drop everything listed on his loot table except the smoldering brand.

My guess at the moment is that they removed it from his(Elemental Warrior) loot table when OoW went live as to increase the dificulty of obtaining it.

found this on A Mass of Living Earth in the Plane of Earth
earth elemental model
# Jul 03 2015 at 2:27 AM Rating: Decent
5 dropped from one of the plane of earth raid events, from a triumvate protector. So, its fairly reasonable to believe that any earth elemental model in poe can drop them.
