    I had a very successful thread during the old beta days, where I asked people to help me find the spawn points for Unique monsters. The goal of this thread is something similar. I noticed that the unique Legendary crafting materials have specific drop patterns. For example, Griswold's Scribblings may drop from the objects that drop a lore journal (even if you already have the journal), but the most likely place you'll find it is the Cathedral, from the bookshelves most people ignore.

    What I ask is simple: while playing the game watch out for these crafting materials and when you find one write down everything you can about it and post it here. Material name, area it dropped in, thing that dropped it, was it a bounty, etc. The more info you can give us the better.

    Note that the only monsters that drop the materials are Uniques (purple name). They drop both in Story and Adventure mode and their drop chance increases with the difficulty:

    Normal - 15%
    Hard - 18%
    Expert - 21%
    Master - 25%
    Torment 1 - 31%
    Torment 2 - 37%
    Torment 3 - 44%
    Torment 4 - 53%
    Torment 5 - 64%
    Torment 6 - 77%

    The crafting plans are completely random drops and not linked to monster types at all. The only exception is the plan for the Reaper's Wraps, which drops from Malthael. If you get lucky you can also get some of the plans from Dane Bright.

    If anyone want to post this list somewhere else then feel free to do so, but please keep the credits (it's at the bottom of my post) and the links in the credits titles intact or at the very least mention where you got the info from.

    Re: The RoS beta Legendary crafting material challenge

    Just want to note that when I was playing, the cathedrals were seriously dropping the scribblings with about a 30% chance. This may have been extreme RNG and the drop rate might be a lot lower (like 10%) but it was still pretty gaudy. I imagine that'll be tuned because otherwise, unless you need dozens of them, collecting sufficient quantities would just be a few bookcase clicks away.

    I picked up 5 in a single-pass of Cath 1/2/3/4, and I'd estimate something like 4 bookshelves on each floor. (I may have missed some.) 4x4 = 16 / 5 = ~30%.

    Re: The RoS beta Legendary crafting material challenge

    Yeah, the Cathedral drop rate is very suspect, although it's definitely not nearly 30%. I've had Cathedral runs where I checked all bookshelves and the Scribblings didn't drop.

    My goal at this point is only to see if there are indeed certain patterns to the materials. Griswold's seem to confirm this so far. I want to know where to farm if I want to craft a specific Legendary in RoS. I bet I'm not alone. :)

    Found the Griswolds Scribblings from the Festering Woods event in Act 1. The name of the event was "Last Stand of the Ancients."

    The purple monster associated with the event was: Enmerkar.

    Dropped the Scribblings and a lore book.

    Ive only done the event once though.

    Interesting, so even monsters that drop lore books can drop the scribblings. Thanks for the info Rook.

    I assume it was from an object that drops a lore journal otherwise, right? If so, I'll delete all the drop points for the scribblings and only say that they can drop anywhere from where journals could, but most often drop from the Cathedral bookshelves.

    Thanks Monstrous, I'll add it to the list soon. I believe you mean the Morlu Casters, the guys that cast meteors, right? Was it an Elite that dropped the Living Flame?

    Interesting, so it seems that it can drop from any bookshelf type object and not just from the Cathedral. Thanks Genocides.

    Re: The RoS beta Legendary crafting material challenge

    Thanks Elly. I think we have enough confirmation for the Cultist's Blood as well. They seem to drop from any Cultist Elite. I assume the other materials are similar in this regard and each have a monster type they can drop from (if they drop from monsters at all).

    EDIT: I have an additional question. Did anyone see one of these things drop from normal (that is not Elite) enemies?

    Now I'm all but sure that it's indeed Enraged Phantoms that drop the shard. Thanks Wmeredith, I'll add you to the credits.
