Drop rate seems to be much better in Qvic than other zones. got 5 in about 2 hours.

You thought pharming High Quality Lion Skins was bad? Ha.
The level of commitment and patience it takes to get FIVE of these for the jewel seal is of the level that most people only afford their children.

I think this is wrong. You need far more patience to camp these stupid things than you would ever use even in crying identical triplets.

Clearing Vxed and now Qvic for several hours (I would say between 4 and 5 hours now), and I've seen a grand total of one. I was about to say zero but one dropped in Qvic. Way too fricken rare.

You actually made me laff ! Crying triplets, too funny.
These have actually gotten easier. The first night I pharmed these, I got ZERO. The second night, I got one. And then on the third night I got THREE.
I have made 5 diff Artisan's Seals, and there's usually one ingredient that's a ROYAL pain to get. This same scenario played out EVERY time I had to pharm items for a new seal I'd never made before:
The first day you get nothing, then, after you get your first, it seems they come quicker and you can get multiples in the same day.
Really makes me think there's something in the code, like you gotta rack up a certain body count in the zone before they start givin em to ya. Ppl gonna say I'm crazy but I saw the same thing 5x and I don't belive in coincidence.
My advice to you: do NOT try the smithing Artisan Seal, then!
Pyrilen Flames are the ABSOLUTE worst of any seal ingredient I've run across, and you need FOUR of them. Everybody seems to know this, and on my server, smithing seals are consistently the highest priced seal.
I once cleared the dungeon of EVERY pyrilen SIX TIMES without getting a SINGLE one. The next day, I got 4 in half that time. The "average" seems to be that you have to clear the dungeon 2-3x for each pyrilen flame, but you can also end up in that same "six and none" hell that I did.

The fastest and most efficient way to farm these is by chain running Vxed missions. The lockout request timer is 6 minutes, which is about how long it takes to run through and kill the 20 or so Ikaavs. Using this method, I was able to average a scale every 15 or so minutes using a Bard.

Otherwise, you can spend upwards of 5-10 hours cherry picking Ikaavs out of hordes of mobs in Kod'taz, Qvic and Txevu (and waiting on respawns) to get all 5. All Ikaav's in GoD have about a 3% drop chance.

Burning through Vxed expedition worked best for me as well. I spent 2 to 3 hours in Kod'Taz, Qvic, Txevu, etc., just to loot one. Then I went to Vxed and started clearing the zone and got a scale on my first run. It took 9 (semi-complete) runs to get 4 more scales, where I was running to hot spots like the far northeast corner/cul-de-sac (3 dropped here) and a few other spots where multiple Ikaavs spawned within a small area. The scales are still a pain to farm, but Vxed is definitely the best way to go. Good luck!

Txevu nameds

I'll just post here because by the time I notice peeps are in zone it's already too late to ooc... But for Bertoxx's sake please leave the nameds up in Txevu (at least), unless you're after the nameds specifically.

Each named comes with its set of adds that'll repop every ~45 mins or so, if you kill the named you won't get any trash until the named repops (days?). Named pops are about half of the zones pop so it really really helps if they could just stay up like the good aliens they are!

I had no idea where any of these zones were when I started today (skipped GoD when it came out, and never really got there).

Anyway, gotta say, all you need is Qvic for this. Txevu is too restrictive (lots of tunnels) and there just aren't that many ikaavs. For me, I can clear Qvic, and just as I'm finishing, it's repopping, so I just egress back to the other side and run through again.

Luck has been good so far, 4 scales in 4 clears.

EQ traders says this and an an Enchanted Platinum Bar in a Reinforced Jewelers Kit should make a Iridescent Scale Headdress but it doesn't combine.

Any help?
