dark blue and light blue only?

I had a few "drop" (3 or 4) out of a few hundred killshots against dark blues in Icefall (orcs mostly). Then I went to LP and am killing mostly worgs, but after at least 200-300 of them (yellow and reds), not a single EE.
Are we only able to get EE's from a dark or light blue con?
emeralds required??

do you need to have emeralds on you for an EE to be created?
damage capped?

with venin rk.2, 60 percent poison focus and maxed crit damage aa it seems i should be critting in the high 7 thousands, yet after months and months the highest ive gotten is just over 7.1k and ive hit this repeatedly. is there a damage cap on necro nukes or is my math just bad?

You do realize that crit damage is based off of base spell damage then the bonus is applied right?

I have rank 2 of Venin and rank 2 of Vakk'dra's Sickly Mists and when TSS first came out I had bought rank 1 of both spells and maybe has 1 out of 30 make me ee's, now a few weeks later with rank 2 I might get 1 out of 100. I would think a higher rank would yield more ee's but I can see I was wrong. I have killed and killed and killed and killed Grey has never given me anything nor has green so I do believe it is light blue con and up. I have killed in Nobles Causeway in the murk glider pit yes some are green but most are still light blue and nothing, so I thought to myself maybe in a tss zone might make a difference and I have tried both the Steppes and Icefall Glacier and I still maybe get 1 out of 100. I can tell you what this is no way to farm ee's which I can understand and agree with but come on now 1 out of 100 I was better off with rank 1 before some of these so called patches and at ee's on my server going for 1000 platinum to 1500 platinum I am very selective on when and who I rez and if my guild can't replace the ee during a raid I am never the first necromancer to volunteer LOL.
chances of an EE from kill shot?

I'm interpretting this:

Unknown #365 (100/5/70)


if the mob lvl 70+ (or lvl 71+), then 5 successes out of 100 attempts.

I've not had time to test that yet, but when I do, I'll post back ... prolly in a few days or a week.

I've heard of people getting EEs from LB kills... I assume 70's are not LB to a 75... though with the new con system, who knows?

I just got an EE of a KS from a lvl 65 critter.

so that helps.

Yes, my EE so far have come from LB mobs, all from nuking trash critters in GoD raids, which isn't all that many.

I tried in NC on the lvl 65 dragorns (LB), but a killshot against 20 or so of them didn't get me an EE.

I sort of remembered getting an EE from a light blue critter, but it's hard as once the critter is dead, and I have the EE in my hand... ummm... was that DB or LB?

I've not been on enough to test anything I hoped I would, but I did get another EE a couple weeks ago from a kill shot in a raid (unknown con).

darkfell gnoll in the steppes drop it.

I have gotten about 4 EEs in the approx 500x I have cast it. Your right very slow cast time and the odds are against you gettin an EE.

Since the latest patch I have not seen a single EE. I have the Rk.II of the spell, I do not know if they nurfed the EE rate but one might thing as you get better versions of these spells you would get better rewards.. Oh Well at least I can waste more mana every time I try to get an EE - Timing kill shot is hard enough, with its slow casting time. IMOP If it remains like this its almost worthless to spend a spell slot on it...

Dropped off a Carrionmancer in the boneyard camp in Direwind Cliffs
found on trash mob
# Sep 28 2006 at 6:58 AM Rating: Decent
dropped in Direwind Cliffs off of a mountain grizzly

*also the "unknow effect" is it has a chance of dropping an essence emerald if you use it as a killing blow
