This item does still drop. It does drop in Kunark era from Large Heartsting Scorpions.

It is not on them very often... probably killed 10-12 of them to get the drop.

Some say killing the scaled wolves around Kurn's gets you more scorpion spawns. Maybe... but if so a lot of them are the smaller scorpions you don't need for this drop.

What would be nice to verify is if just killing the level 11-13 mobs in the area, including from Kurn's towards Kaesora is a better way of getting the correct scorpions to spawn?

With current info, be prepared to lose some hours over this.

Ghah, if these things are dropped by large heartsting scorpions, I'm one unlucky chode. I've spent two days in the back of Krun's where they spawn, 6 hours the first day, 2 the second, and have never seen or heard of one of these dropping in this time.
