For enchanter aoe mez

The level 16 enchanter spell, Mesmerization, is research only on the TLP servers like Mangler. Since this is the first and only targeted aoe mez spell for a LOT of levels (next one is Fascination at level 52, incredibly---from Kunark expansion!) Which means it's kind of essential. Now as is my habit I level my toons fast and I tend to dump all loot on vendors but I did start saving HIDES of all types since I know they're used to research spells. Except I must have inadvertently sold all the low level RAW HIDES cuz I had none in my bank.

Looking up on Magelo to see what drops them the most I found "not much" and I really didn't want to have to kill 100 trash mobs to get 2 or 3 hides. So I noticed on the cat island off Tox there is a mob called a kerran pazdar shaman which seems to have a drop rate of roughly 1 in 3. From a tiny sample, it's true, so this might not extrapolate to 33% on larger quantities but it sure looked a lot better than the 1 in 20 or so rates on other mobs.

So I meandered down to Tox, which is really nice this time of year. Thank God for DRUID TRACKING. I found 4 of the shamans spawned and they were tricky to find, inside underground tunnels under a building at the very top of the island.

Only 4 were up. I killed them all and got 3 RAW HIDES. Which was good enough to make 3 copies of this spell, since I used the CRAFTSMAN DRAUGHT that comes with the market "package" with the big bags. That DRAUGHT is only good for 2 hours OR 48 combines, and failures count, so I made these 3 plus a copy of the level 44 slow, and that's it. The regular DRAUGHT can't be bought on TLP servers, I guess, so back to the old grind to level trade skills since you can only buy this package once.

Yeah, TLP servers are not really close to as tough as EQ was in the early days. But they're sure tougher than regular servers and a lot tougher than WoW. I can't imagine WoW ever making players jump thru so many hoops to get a very essential level 16 spell for any class. Right?

Changed this to be a global drop since this is what it is. These global drops usually drop from a particular level range of NPC in any zone that contain npc's in that level range. From looking at all the NPC's we have listed, it looks like anywhere from level 15 to 20. That should give you a good indicator of what zones to narrow your killing to.

These also drop from "an isle goblin wizard" in Ocean of Tears (level 14-16ish Goblins south of Sister Island). I suspect the shaman types will also drop them but I've yet to loot one from a Shaman.

Not going to read every post, but these seem to drop from a Nokk elder quite frequently.

Mucktail Gnolls and 'a vicious cave bear' were the only thing that dropped the Raw Hide.

As per Magelo, those mobs have the highest drop rate for the item, dropping it nearly a third of the time. Other mobs drop it, too, you'd just need to kill a lot more of them to see it.

Confirmed "a vicious cave bear", but not "a cave bear", in Crescent Reach bear caves.

Not sure about Bloodmaw, the name among the "a vicious cave bear".

Probably the best place to get them is where this guy said.
The Bears are in the second "Northern-most" Cave in CR, all the way in the back of the cave. Spawn timer on the bears is literally no more than 3-4 minutes and they were dropping fairly often. Three clears of all of the Voracious Bears landed me with 5 raw hides.

Thanks for the tip. I would have spent ages looking for these otherwise.

They also appear to be dropping like rain off every caster in Permafrost Caverns - crude binding powder as well.

Killed rats and snakes in Blightfire Moors, nothing dropped.
Killed in Crescent Reach Skeletons and other mobs and nothing.
Killed 2 medics in Highthold Pass and each droped one, go figure eh...
Theurgists too!

Dropped off a Necro Theurgist in Befallen. I found him in the lower levels.

And believe me when I say this, I hunted for hours... never dropped in CR or BFM... Try Befallen if you haven't yet. Lvl 12-20 zone, I think...

Low Drop rate.

Went around Crescent Reach. Every gnoll killed and only one dropped from a Gnoll and none at all from the Shamans.

Tried further up and not a single hide with almost every Skeleton Ogre dead.

Tried Blightfire and not one from nearly all the Moss vipers and none at all from the Bog Rats. Thinks maybe the Bog Rat Pelt for the quest has replaced them because that's all I found.

Managed to buy 3 from a trader in CR where most noobs sell their loot. Been farming mobs for 2 hours and got one hide from it, not the best drop rate IMO.
Drops off Orc Medic in Highpass Hold

Following Blessilunatic's suggestion, my friend and I sought out caster mobs in camps. Having no luck with Evil Eyes or necro acolytes we went to Highpass Hold to kill the orcs near the Kith zoneline.

Raw hide dropped off the orc medics, and MIGHT have also dropped off a fanatic as well.

Old world farming
# Jun 22 2008 at 7:21 AM Rating: Decent
Liking the old world , I have some observations.. Hides will drop off any CASTER class mob witin some general guidelines. They should be part of a camp , orcs , gobbies , froglocks , ect . A descriptive addition to their name helps , Apprentice , medic , shaman , oracle , ect. A mob casting a spell does not mean their a good canidate , Dry boone skeletons(fireburst) , mummies (disease) . Oddly enough the madmen of no/so Ro do SEEM to drop them with a rareity that makes me queezy but some of them are casters . Being in a "dungeon" zone seems to help too , possibly beacuse all mobs in a dungeon are really a giant camp ?
