Go to guild hall->barindu the hanging gardens. Go to north east and talk to Apprentice Udranda. Say titpt, then go to the "broken zone in" just east of her.
Once inside Tipt, its a straight hallway. Kill any cragbeast you see. Youll come across a big opening where a ton of little crags spawn, then a big crag. After they are all dead, alt-z and quit the DZ, it will boot you, re-do it. Simple, but time consuming.
Went to KT, cleared all animals on east of summoning ring as well as north and south sides on the large temple just west of the summoning ring. While waiting for repos, I killed random wanders in these areas as well as some mobs from the local temples.
Took maybe 3 hours to get 4 cragbeast bloods. In that time a also found 14 Hynix blood and 6 of the ores also needed for zerker 1.5
Started blitzing the cragbeast trap room in Tipt after I got a blood off one (6 baby cragbeasts spawn when you enter, kill them and matriarch spawns) and got about 1/10 droprate off the baby cragbeasts. Took about 3 minutes to enter, blitz to the room, and kill them as a sk, but 5 minute minimum to get a new instance. Kicks you after about a minute if you drop the instance, nice easy farm.
3 of them came from off the little spawned crags.
All tradeskills maxed.
Shadow Knight: 1.0. Warrior, Shaman, Wizard, Druid, Ranger, Bard, Paladin, Berserker, Rogue, Enchanter: 1.0-.20. Necromancer: 1.0-2.5.
Just though i would say yea drop rate sucks at times but hey its a ( EPIC ) almost all EPICs have some form of item or items needed that will req. time to get. Besides berserker are to play. They made the 1.0 super easy( + it had the best stats of all the 1.0's ) you knew they would make you work a bit harder for the next one. befor you scream about drop rate though just think could be worse.-1-You could be a cleric farming thos stupid orbs in SF for there 1.0 lmao. -2- Could be worse you could have to put the items in a box to combine like other epic's an the items could be made no drop witch would make the items not even buyable/MQable.
You want a easy game i say go to WOW or one of the newer MMO's WOW will even sell you a preleveled an geared toon.
This items wasnt to hard to get zerker with us got the 2 he needed an got one to spare for GB.

Feel free to rate him down yourself.
I camp just north of the Summoners ring. Its a safe camp, easy constant pulls. While waiting for Crags to respawn you can pull other mobs for some exp. Also get named Hynid and Named Crag that spawn in this area. Overall its not bad.. it just sucks that I'm not getting what I want =P
1) Farm KT and Yxtta Cragbeasts
Pro: You're actually doing work for your epic!
Pro: Get a bit of experience
Pro: Other loots!
Con: Rare drop.
Con: People really don't normally group in KT or Yxtta anymore, unfortunately.
2) Indirect Acquisition via Raid Clearing of KT of Yxtta (Ikkinz raids, Uqua raid, Qvic Alt Access)
Pro: Low risk
Con: These raids are rarely run anymore.
Con: Competition with other guild Zerks.
Con: It's only one clearing before you get to the raid instance usually.
3) Buy it! (Vendor diving, Bazaar hunting)
Pro: Chance for a low price
Pro: Low risk/work
Con: Unlikely to find a Cragbeast Blood under 5kpp... I've seen them at 25k.
Con: Very slim chance of seeing one in the bazaar unless a guild is doing Tipt and Ikkinz.
4) Sheer luck in Vxed or Tipt
Pro: Who's gonna argue with luck?
Con: Very rare from these instances since there are so few Cragbeasts actually in the instance.
Here is what I found:
1) KT - ~ 7 hours camping, 1 blood drop. Also picked up the rest of the drops here mainly. So, nice to get other drops, but frustration was setting in looking for the stupid blood. So, I moved to Yxtta.
2) Yxtta - Only spent about 1.5 hours here, no drops. Had spoken to a 2.0 zerker on my server, he said he got his here. While 3-boxing, had an add that was a BiC mob. Doing great till he mezzed my ranger and ate my shaman. So, I left. Next, I went shopping. And as always, the bazaar was slightly inflated w/ only 1 for sale for 100k pp (getting close to paying that much for it).
3) So, 1 blood, 9 hours down and a shopping trip later, i was frustrated. My brother said he would help me farm if i would KT flag him. Back to tipt. First cragbeast we kill...yay a blood. Since then, i have camped tipt run up to where the enraged cragbeast spawns. I have gotten another blood (so up to 3 now), both off of the flinty crags at the beginning.
Moral of the story: Collecting these bloods sucks, by far it is the worst part of 1.5. PS. If anyone has a cragbeast blood on drinal server, let me know....see if we can work out a deal (Main: winluyen).
Goodluck to all other zerkers on this part...it stinks.
EDIT: Done. Tipt is the way to go. Got 3 drops in about 20 missions (once again, only clearing to the enraged cragbeast). Now on to the fight for my little zerker. It took about 15 to 20 minutes to clear all the crags up to this point...so, way fast than other places i camped.

So, if you're on CT/Brell and have any of these, send a /tell to Dycedarg and I'll work something out with you.
