Does anyone know where I can purchase the scrying stone's for these spells? I'm looking for the "greater" versions (in case that makes a difference).

All the scrying stones are sold by the LDoN magus vendors.
Where? Who?

I can't seem to find Greater Disombob listed anywhere at the adventure merchants here on Allakhazam's.

Is this an oversight? Is the spell Greater Discombobulation sold anywhere at the wayfarer camps? I only see Greater Appraisal and Extricate on the Bestiary lists here on this site.
How these spells work.

Ok to clear up a lot of confusion about the ldon spells.

In LDON there are THREE types of traps. They are mechanical, magical, and cursed.

MECHANICAL traps can be sensed by a bard or rogue and ONLY by a bard or rogue using their sense trap skill. These traps can then be opened by the bard or rogue with disarm and lockpick.

MAGICAL traps are opened by INTELLIGENCE casters and ONLY intellegence casters via the new LDON line of spells. The wizard, mage, enchanter, and necromancer have these spells. The first spell tells that caster if the trap is indeed a magical trap. If it is then the caster should use the appropriate spell to disarm the trap. Lastly that caster must open the lock with the lock break spell. ONLY these FOUR classes can open MAGICAL traps and none other.

LASTLY is the CURSED traps. These can be opened by the holy classes via their new LDON spells. Also note that NECROMANCERS can also unlock cursed traps. Again the first spell line must be used to tell if the trap is a CURSED trap of not. If it is cursed the disarm trap spell must be used. Lastly the caster must use the lock break spell. ONLY the holy casters and necromancers can open cursed traps.

Also, each spell is able to work up to certain lvls of traps. The lvl 14 spell can open traps to a certain average group lvl and not farther. Likewise the lvl 24 and 34 spells go up to higher lvl traps. I DONT KNOW which the lvl 14 24 and 34 stop working on so if you do please post away.

As you can see these spells can be very helpful to get and are not junk as most people believe. Know also that the trapped chests can have nice items inside such as AUGMENTATIONS and gear that rares have, as well as money and experience.

So next time you are in LDON and come across a trapped chest.....take the time to learn which of the three types it is. Then open it...you will be glad you did :)

Thanks you and I hope this helps a lot.

I am using this spell effectively. The detect magic traps spell seems to work perfectly and is always accurate in detecting traps (of the magic variety). Then I use this spell to remove the trap. I haven't failed yet.
Not Worth It.

Its my experence in attempting to use this spell that it doesnt work. 12p per cast and 90% of the time it fails. Im level 54 and divination in excess of 200 and it fails more often than not the one time it did work the chest had 5 gold and a vendor item worth 3p. Therefore im about 115p in the hole from using this spell. a total waste of the 60AP I spent for it and the 120AP I spent for the other 2 spells.

Does anyone have any idea what this spell line does?

I'm guessing (and it's purely a guess at this point) that it is one of the spells referred to in this line from the LDoN description:

Rogues and bards have the ability to use lock picking and trap disarming skills to open these objects, while Enchanters, Magicians, Necromancers and Wizards can cast a line of spells to open some as well.
