    I thought it might be helpful to start a thread to help connect some SA loot drops with their sources and possible uses. Please let me know if you see anything that needs to be corrected or if you have information to add. I'll try to keep the list in this post updated with any new information you provide and we'll also use it to update information posted on Stratics in more permanent locations.

    Note: As of October 9, 2009, Publish 61 added some alternative methods (i.e., crafting, questing, growing) for acquiring some of the Imbuing Ingredients. The ones that are known so far have been included below.

    Aliabeth the Tinker in the tinker shop in Royal City (Ter Mur facet) offers a quest called "A Worthy Proposition" that asks for one Elven Fletching and 10 bamboo flutes and another quest called "The Exchange" that asks for five white chocolate and one dark sapphire in exchange for valuable imbuing ingredients. Until more results are in from both of these quests, I'm reluctant to mention them as definite alternative sources for any specific imbuing ingredients. Maplestone has completed the "Worthy Proposition" quest several times to obtain daemon claws and undying flesh and "The Exchange" quest to obtain silver snake skin.

    Sliem the Fence, way up in the NW corner of the Royal City, offers a quest called, "Unusual Goods." He promises a highly sought after imbuing ingredient in exchange for one piece of crystalline blackrock and two perfect emeralds. Not sure yet of the range of rewards, but it should be imbuing ingredients plus 75 loyalty points.


    Imbuing Ingredients

    These are the high-end ingredients needed to imbue certain properties at intensities of 91-100% and to imbue properties that have no intensity (i.e., Balanced, Faster Casting, Mage Armor, Night Sight, Spell Channeling, Slayer Type, Use Best Weapon Skill, or Velocity).
    • Abyssal Cloth - Cavern of the Discarded creatures (Abyss) - Mage Armor property. (As of Publish 61, a character with 110 Tailoring skill can craft this ingredient (quantity of crafted item still unknown) by using a sewing kit along with 1 Crystalline Blackrock and 10 Bolts of Cloth.)
    • Arcanic Rune Stone - Cavern of the Discarded creatures (Abyss) - Mage Weapon property. (As of Publish 61, a character with 90 Tinkering and 80 Magery skill can craft this ingredient by using a tinkering tool along with 1 Crystal Shards and 5 Power Crystals.)

    Possible Uses for "Mystery Items"

    The Publish 60 notes describe a number of new item properties on pp. 18-19 of the PDF version (http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=932) and you can find them on a number of the new artifacts. Perhaps many of the above items with no known use will eventually be used to imbue these properties on weapons, shields and armor?

    • Blood Drinker
    • Battle Lust
    • Damage Eater - There may be many types of "Damage Eaters," i.e., one for each "traditional" damage type, as well as one for Chaos damage and a "Damage All" type.

    • Hit Fatigue
    • Hit Mana Drain
    • Reactive Paralyze
    • Resonance - Again, there may be many types of Resonance: Physical, Fire, Cold, Poison, Energy, Chaos, and Kinetic.
    • Soul Charge
    • Splintering Weapon

    Map of Abyss Mini-Champ Spawn Areas and Other Points of Interest

    Below is a map showing the locations of the various mini-champ spawn areas in the Abyss, as well as the Cavern of the Discarded and some other points of interest (e.g., peerless and entrances to new Fel rule-set champ spawns).

    Ah! Good catch!

    I believe Essence of Balance comes from void creatures and the Cavern of the Discarded creatures and adds the Balanced property on bows.

    I just realized Essence of Direction for adding the Velocity property was also missing from the list.

    Several of the items are required in the alchemist quests.

    For example, congealed slug acid is used in the "All that glitters" quest.

    Boura Skin is needed for the Hit Dispel property. Higher levels... like above 40 percent I think...? One of those properties anyways... high level inbue property. I THINK it's Hit Dispel... don't quote me. :)

    I got mining gems, luminescent fungi and paralytic plant from doing the quests from Axem the curator at the museum in Royal City. However, I think there are several other quests that probably provide similar rewards. Percolem the Hunter, found in an open air market type of environment just a short distance west of the central area of Royal City where the soul forge is located, specifically mentions that he will reward you with imbuing materials from his wife's supply if you do some things for him (e.g., kill raptors, boura, etc.).

    Who offers these quests and where is the NPC located? (I suspect it's Gretchen, or something like that, located in the Underworld.)

    There are a number of creatures found in the "Cavern of the Discarded" located on the bottom of the "east" or "right" side of the Abyss. The ones I can remember off the top of my head include the Clan Scratch Savage Wolf, Clockwork Scorpion, Clan Chitter Tinkerer, Clan Ribbon Plague Rat, and Clan Scrounger (or something like that).

    Here's a picture of the entire area on the Legacy Client's radar map.

    DevilsOwn pointed out the Tasty Treats quest from one of the alchemists in the Royal City which uses boura skin and a bit of dough as quest items. The reward is a "tasty treat" which is supposed to give your pet a bit of a boost.

    Oh sorry - Thepem The Apprentice in the Royal City (south of the soulforge).

    He and Zosilem have a complex quest system that suspect will become popular.

    There are 2 quests offered by the Apprentice Alchemist right near the public soul forge.

    The first will give you a bottle of elixer to turn regular ingots into gold ingots. (I haven't tried the elixer yet.) For that you need 5 congealed acid and 20 gold ingots, which you first hand to him to examine.

    The second quest (same npc) is for the Tasty Treat for pets only. As stated already you need 5 bora skins and a single dough. The treat gives +5 stat increase to pets for 20 minutes with a 2 minute cooldown timer.

    There is also another alchemist in the shop with him, it says he is a quest giver, but when I click him with my GM alchemist, or mule toon, he doesn't do anything.

    If anyone figures this guy out please give a shout.

    I couldn't get the other alchemist quest giver to react to my tamer either.

    My guess is that a ton of the other NPCs floating around in bizarre places are for handing out additional quests to get/craft imbuing ingredients, as Draconi hinted at earlier this week.

    Any chance you could be a bit more specific about what's incorrect?

    Essence drops are tied to Spawn Locations not necessarily creatures.

    For example: Fire Ants drop Passion, Order, and Precision Essences based on which champ spawn they're located in. The map gives a guide to this.

    Can you help come up with a list of all the creatures that spawn in the various levels of all the mini champ spawns? I'd love to have the list give the names of all the mini champ monsters and the names of the mini champ spawn areas as we match them up to the list given in the Publish 60 notes. I used the monster names we knew from beta when very few of the mini champs got worked to their top level. I personally haven't had time yet to hit up all the different areas and learn what spawns in each of them. So it would be great if you could help flesh out this list so it is much more comprehensive.

    And don't worry....if Petra gives me the go-ahead to post anything further with this information, you'll get credit. And if you think I stomped all over your work, I apologize. I didn't see it until after I started this thread.

    Okay, what is the deal with undamaged undead gargoyle horns? I tried killing undead gargoyles in the Tomb of Kings and they didn't drop them. I tried killing the undead gargoyles in the Medusa's lair and they didn't drop them. I even killed the lava versions in the mini-champ area and they didn't drop them. So does anyone know where they drop from?

    The reason I ask is because they are needed for Zosilem's 'The Brainy Alchemist' quest. She wants 10 of them. But I can't even find 1! :wall:

    Oh, and to Yalp and anyone else who wants to know, the way to get the other alchemist (Zosilem) to start giving you quests is you have to complete 5 of Thepem's Tier 2 quests. In order to get Thepem to offer you Tier 2 quests you have to complete 5 of his Tier 1 quests. His Tier 1 quests are 'All That Glitters' & 'Tasty Treats'. :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Stranger, for the information on the alchemist quests. I added the undamaged undead gargoyle horns to the list of loot drops but with "source unknown." Hopefully someone will find some and post here on the source.

    I received "Delicate Scales" from the ratmen in the Cavern of the Discarded. Is this a craftable? Or just something interesting that drops?

    They are an imbuing ingredient used to add the Use Best Weapon Skill property.

    It's on the west side of the royal city, towards the south. Right next to the wall. There are a few yellow NPCs in there including a tanner (buy up that cheap leather before everyone else does! :))

    I think the quest guy offers three different quests (at least initially?) I still need to do the book one.

    Tina Small, I can confirm that the undead gargoyles in the medusa's liar drop the undamaged undead gargoyle horns. :thumbup:

    I have to give credit to this post:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=153227

    If this is the only place they drop from then holy cow it is going to take forever to get 10 of them!
    It takes me about 10 minutes to gather the keys to enter the liar. Once inside there are only 1-3 of these undead gargoyles. It takes me another 10 minutes to get the medusa to release the gargoyles and fight the other spawn. And I have only gotten 1 horn in 10 gargoyles. Yikes!

    I can also confirm they drop Undead Gargoyle Medallions and Undying Flesh.
    I got 2 medallions out of the 10 I killed and 2 undying flesh out of the 10 I killed.

    Treasure sand is just to weigh you down.

    The mini-boss back there (something-the-thief) throws them at you during the fight so you get overloaded quickly and can't walk/run.

    If you drop them, they can turn into side spawn (spectral armor, metallic mage, metallic warrior) and if you're overloaded and they drop on the ground, they can turn into side spawn. And if he throws the treasure sand at your pets, they drop to the ground and can turn into side spawn.

    But in the grand scheme of things, that's all that treasure sand is, an inconvenience.

    Just to point out, my post on Medusa was during the open beta, things may have changed since then.

    We've done three Medusa since SA's release and haven't found any, but the gargoyles don't always spawn with Medusa, seems to be random what monsters do spawn with her.
