A necro friend and I went to Arcstone hunting for the spirit mark for her robe. Three Embras,two Shekars later,Shekar dropped it!!! I think it was an hour and a half,at the very most two hours. I honestly did not expect it to drop for hours or days even the way people were talking about it. I have one extremely happy friend now. Necro's rejoice!
Still worth gettting for a necro, took ~ 90 minutes

Maybe they upped the drop rate, maybe I got lucky, then again, maybe I just clear fast, I dunno. Had 5 named in less than an hour and a half, and none were up when I got there. 5th named dropped the mark. Had my BP, lickety split. Wish I'd remembered this from years ago, but had forgotte nabout it. Saw it on necro boards....figured I'd give it a try.

Fang of death, 0.8 sec clicky, crits for 1335 a tick for me, and clickable from inventory. I moved my circlet of shadow (which I've used like, twice since last January,) to the bag and stuck this robe in its old slot... and I gotta say, it was the right decision. This thing is COOL. Free Dot and free HP's? Yes, please.

Zone in from guild hall port, take a quick right, look for the mini volcano. Start killing those mini RSS flame mobs. Quest giver is right there at zone in. Mold cost me 2000 plat.

Good luck!

The drop rate still sucks =p. Went to farm it for my shammy and killed nine of them in 4 hours. Finally dropped it. I swear SOE watches everything you do because Embra popped about twelve times in that period and dropped the leg mark twice.

I don't know if I'm getting bizarrely lucky, or if the drop rate has changed. I've been to arcstone twice in a month (and before that, maybe not for a year and a half) and both times one of the named fire dudes were up, and both times the spirit mark of battle dropped. I remember hearing scare stories of people pouring in hours and days of clears with no drops, so 2 drops from 2 kills suggests that the drop odds may have changed. Has anyone noticed if perhaps the spirit mark mobs now always drop them?

Although I do not need the drop myself, I can safely say Shekar has died by my hands over 100 times now, Firelash 20-30 times, and no marks have dropped since PoR came out. Basically, I have been at the firetail camp from all 3 camp sides helping several folks with the needy quest and the shopkeeper charm quest, as well as many cloaks. Heck, zonewide I have only seen one mark drop from willow (sp) and never seen the other nameds drop one. While most sessions lasted 2-3 hours in duration at varying parts of the zone, one might say, camp it longer (never had the need really) but I do know some folks that managed to camp firetails for 2 weeks straight, 24 hours a day and never got the battle mark to drop. I know yet other people who spawned Shekar and got 3 in a row, no PHs and all dropped marks. This drop sounds very random to me and seems to be ultra rare in the long run. My advice is to find another BP if you are the type that relies on pick-up groups. Sure, this is a great thing to go for, but not worth the time in my experience. Like everything else, you could get lucky but only one person wins the million-dollar lottery and it usually isn't people like me. Oh and another thing, if you get tired of pulling around Oro, just kill him, kill the firebat after, and leave Coalshade the 3rd spawn alone, Oro will take longer to respawn if you do, and someone may need the drops for the cloak at the same time. Shekar seems to spawn most often on the South side between the West and East camps, but not always.

Camped Shekar for 10 hours one day and got her to pop 20 times and no mark. Today i got in 30 minutes at the camp and got 2 marks. Go figure.

too bad one was ninja looted by a monk named Dextous on the Nameless server.

This thing is far from common. Its more like uncommon/rare.
