Just about any hornet can drop it. I found a good concentration of them around the center of the zone, but there are lots of roamers so be careful if you are a lower level. Drop rate is greater than 75%.
Got off ash hornet

58 necro soloing area between bw zone and nest area for 12 hrs in three 4 hr plus stints... still no drop though hundreds of wasps killed and dozens of fire hornet wings (no collectors tho) dropped... even many doubles of regular wings but no collectors).

I figure that the 10 doses of double exp for 30 mins will now not even make up the lost time camping this damn thing!

Why did they make it so rare a drop?

I got ALL NINE other pieces in under an hour, now 12 hrs without a drop.

Frustration thy name is Sony!

Well I had hit Post Message once on my last post here, but 20 minutes later I still don't see it. Forgive me if it double posts. =P

I'd kept hearing how this was the hardest piece to get, but I took my druid through BW a few nights ago, via SF and then heading east and slightly south, and got it on my first hornet kill.

Then last night, hunting with my warrior down by the DL zone, and not a one dropped in 3 hours. In fact, even the regular ones weren't dropping much.

I'll be trying back around my druid's hunting area tonight.
Not just Cinder Hornets

The mob list for this item really needs to be updated. The wing can drop off of ANY hornet in the zone.

Just spent 3 hours there, chain pulling and pulling groups of 3-6 hornets of all kinds at the Hornet nest.... didn't get one....

To those that got it in under 2 hours, feel blessed....

Got it off the first ash hornet I killed.
Nerf or Bug

On the Karana server three nights, four hours a night, over 2000 hornets killed and not a single drop. Five nights ago we got two to drop in three mobs killed. Either hit by the Sony nerf bat or a bug, we are not the only ones experiencing this problem either.

I found one at 457 -2596, no where near the nest. It was the first one i killed away from the nest and it dropped. Go figure.

This was by far the longest camp for the quest. I spent easily over 2 hours killing hornets by myself. The wing can drop from any of the hornets as mentioned before, so no need to focus on one specific type. If you're below level 50, consider bringing friends along for this one. As a level 67 warrior I was able to solo the entire quest but the ember and scor. hornets seemed to do the most damage. Good Luck!

Maybe I got unlucky with this piece. Took me best part of an hour before one dropped. On FV server my character bought the components. The Elixir is for sale there between 50-300k
Any Hornet

I got 5 of them in about 2 hours yesterday with a group. We were up ontop of the hill just East of the Nest. There are plenty of spawns around there. They dropped of Ash, Ember, Cinder, and Scoriae Hornets.
This is the longest camp of the Scavenger Hunt so just hang in there, they do drop!

this was the longest camp at about 30 minutes and I looted 2 CLR spells as well (one lvl 51 and the other lvl 54. Not a bad trade off, two items for the bazaar trader and a quest piece in 30 minutes at the hornet's 'nest'.

A Scoriae Hornet

Got mine off A Scoriae Hornet. I'm a 51 Druid and i was group with two friends aprox level 68 1 Ranger, 1 Beastlord. This dropped from the 3rd mob 'we' attacked. I was on autofollow and had no idea where i was in the zone and didnít even get a chance to cast a spell before my group took it down. My friends logged for a raid straight after getting me this. There were a lot for Hornets around. Rooted 3 before deciding discretion is the better part of valour and scarpered!! (I already lost my level in DL ...Killed by the Dragoons getting the War Braid) I was not gonna hang around in a zone new to me.

I spent a good hour in the "hornet corner" killing tons and tons of them. As soon as I ran up and started killing in the zone up by Skyfire zone and Chardok zone.. it dropped off the first one I killed. It was dropping for others there as well.

I got it from an ash hornet. Helped others get it as well, ash hornet seemed to be the one that dropped it more often.
