Either greatly up the drop rate or remove this as an item required for alchemy recipes. This is ridiculous! An hour or two to get 0 to 1??? Come on!!!
Flamefist drops Red Cups too

Dropped off a Smoke Dervish in Lavaspinner's Lair.

These are some hard drops to cups. I spent several hours killing everything listed in Broodlands and adjacent zones...and got ONE. Slim pickens.

Oh I understand why it's so hard to locate alacrity distillates at lvl VIII, or whatever level they are required in the recipe. Rare, rare, rare.
Forage table
# Aug 08 2011 at 4:15 PM Rating: Decent
I was foraging for these in Lavaspinners lair, and in the 8 hours I spent, I found the zone has a very large forage table. Here is a list of the items I foraged. Not sure if it is complete, butits everything I got in 8 hours.

Water, Rabit Meat, Marsh Algae, Nettle Creeper, Amber water worm, Spiny Fruit, Fishing grubs, Firefly,
Lime, Roots, Draconic Essence, Scale ore, Pitcher Plant, Fruit, Mature Silkworm, Luminous Ivy, Red Cups, Vegetables, Jungle Pineapple, Storm Cloud, Cypatanthus, Silkworm, Berries, Deep Forest Mushroom,
Camphor Leaf, Silkworm Larva, Steaming water, Marsh Gas, Air Infused Spring Water, and Bumberry.

As you can see, there are at least 30 items on the table, so It might be better to try in the broodlands or in stillmoon temple. I will try both those zones, and post a list of the forage item table for each. Hope this helps.

Forage table

Ok, Having now foraged for these in broodlands, I found that the forage table is the same there as in Lavaspinners lair. Also, there are three additions to the list, Skyvine, Blue Nightwort, and Coarse Salt. One item I found in broodlands that isn't on lavaspinners table is Chunk of Ice.

After foraging both places for equal time, I got 3 red cups in each zone in about 8 hours time, so there are not all that common. I hope this helps folks to know what they are facing when farming these. Good luck to all my fellow tradeskillers out there who, like me, are masocistic enough to put themselves through this ordeal.

where to find red cups
# May 27 2006 at 5:30 AM Rating: Decent
I have spent several hours over the last couple of days foraging as much as possible in the Broodlands. However, I have foraged almost 30 different items, but not a single red cup. Does anybody know the best spots in the zone to farm these items? Is there a prime spot, or are they just as likely to be foraged from any spot in the zone, and I'm just having extremely poor luck in acquiring them?

I ended up with 3 Red Cups in my bag collected from drops and foraging. Had no idea what they were for so put them on my trader for 100pp each. They didnt last the day! Going out to see if I can find some more.

Definate used in Alchemy - For all Distillate of XXXX VIII potions. Any one selling these in Bazaar please remember that these are one of several ingredients that go into potions that sell for 15-20 plat. these arn't worth 100 or even 50 plat each.

# Apr 25 2008 at 11:34 AM Rating: Decent
Well, that's not entirely true. The output is 5 potions for each Red Cup, if the price per potion is 15-20 plat, I could see Red Cups being worth 50-60 plat each (after you take into consideration the other costs in the alchemy combine).

Red cups is used for Elixir of healing VIII. I can't remember all the other items, but I do know the other items are vendor bought and I am not positive, but its used for Elixir of Clarity VIII also.

When used in making Elixir of clarity VIII it's combined with Stinging nettle, red cups and several small vials.

Got one the other day in Broodland, just checking out the zone. I think it dropped off a gobie warrior.

Foraged 2 Red Cups in Broodlands with my druid. Anyone found a use for them?
