I'm selling these quite quickly at 75p. Drops of a zillion mobs, but most folks just use them as vendor trash. Will have to see what they make with this item, as it's hard to keep in stock in bazaar.

Scale Ore is used in any number of jewelry combines, for the high end trio line of mounts that add really good stats up to about level 80 or so. Beyond that, you can loot or quest better items. Honestly though, at level 10 - 55/60, if you dont have a full set of appropriate jewelry you are loosing out on thousands of free HP and Mana, let alone resists. Good fair price for jeweler is up to 50-75pp or so, above that its not worth the price for what you can sell the end item for.

Have been grinding in Icefall Glacier, since its a lvl 70 HZ right now, and have had a few of these drop off the Mammoths (Large, Wooly, Adult) - straight out from the zone in. Not often, mind you, but they do drop off them. Hope that helps.

A rather odd non-DoN spot if you ask me. Must have been picked up by a roamer.

Scale Ore
# Mar 19 2008 at 10:46 AM Rating: Decent
Prices of 1-2K for this piece is ridiculous! The prismatic palladium bar once enchanted into a palladium bar, then combined with a mold to craft a piece of jewelry (example a palladium trio pendant) sells in the bazaar for only about 700-1000p. Why would you pay 1-2k for scale ore when you can't sell the jewelry it makes for more than 1k for each piece?

Someone for sure needs to get a life.

46 kills of Magman drakelings, shatterers, stone dervishes, and the basilisks at the Fire Stones and all I got was 1 sapphire, 1 ruby, 1 nest drake meat, and 3 of those symbols/coin that give you a quest but no scale ore.

As for foraging them. 2 scale ores in 4 hours for me with 200 skill and the foraging Machete.

And to top it off with Jewelry skill of 198 and a triv of 26 I FAILED 3 combines in a row.

Its ******** like this that keeps new players away!

Yeah, it is still called this. But the new JC items and drive for the levelling of skills has increased supply and demand. So peeps selling it for crazy prices, but cannot blame them if someone is paying, LOL.

Also dropped of a magma scatterer in The Broodlands

I found an easy camp in the Broodlands. After you zone in head west to the other side. there are 4 or 5 pillars and the Magma drakes fly around there. After you kill them wait for repops. A few dervishes come through the general area too.

It's busy place though with lots of creatures wandering in, so be prepared for adds, usually the Baslisks but some of the Goblin creatures too.

after clearing a few times, I did have 2 names pop of the Firefag,Flamfist,FireClaw type, I can't remember which 2 exactly. I had wandered off after clearing the area and they were there wheN I came back. They were no problem to my 72 Druid and his DC pet but I'm surprised seeing now that they're level 50.

It probably took an hour to get 4 drops of scale ore, and I think one was a forage.

The reason prices are so high for Scale Ore in Bazaar is because they are used to make Prismatic Palladium Bars for Jewelcraft (around 270+) Trivial

# Jun 01 2006 at 10:52 PM Rating: Decent
The trival for the Pristine Palladium Bar is 26. Also anything you make with the Palladium runs at the venders 9s 5c anyways even using the best gem you can find or just selling the bar.

I'm currently sitting in Lavaspinner's, foraging my little heart out. I've been here over six hours. I have 22 different items foraged (How the HELL can I get water, pineapples and moss in a bare cave of lava??) and not one scale ore. 'Ticked off' doesn't even BEGIN to cover it.
# May 28 2005 at 8:57 AM Rating: Decent
I just bought a bunch today on Maelin for 248pp ea. A bunch of people were selling them too, all around the same price. FYI
