    This is killing me. Is there something wrong with my client or did they make Gargoyle's stop spawning these? I am tired of filling iron weapons BODs to get my Garg pickaxes, HELP!!!!!!

    They were always a fairly rare drop, they are still dropping I got some not much more than a week or so ago.

    client makes no difference, and I use enhanced too. I wasn'[t actually hunting for them, I just collected them for a friend when I got them. One of the ones I got came from an enslaved gargoyle when I was collecting keys in Exodus.
    I seem to remember that when we went seriously hunting for them we used to kill stone gargoyles in lost lands

    wow--can you try again? I hunted these all the time and used to get at least some--I am sure something is wrong--try regular gargoyles. I even see a gap in the loot they spawn where its a blank space , second spot right next to the gold--I am almost sure there is a bug--

    Just last week I went gargoyle hunting for pickaxes in the glacier in Ilshenar, and picked up 3 in an hour or so. They still spawn.

    EEKS ... Has it come that far? Even I would consider selling some of mines at that rate. Only that mines are all on DF atm. *g*

    The drop rate of those pickaxes is really pour on plain gargoyles. I can get around 10-12 per hour, when I am hunting the stone gargoyles in Illshenar. (There is a spot with three stone gargoyles in one of the farthest areas of the desert. With a gargoyle slayer weapon I usually have to wait for respawn.) Remember that luck helps on drops like this. I usually use an anniversary statue before i go out on such trips and stop when the (additionally) luck runs out.
