    Some of the items seem to be WAY too common.

    Here's what I've gotten with my 18 characters on Lake Austin

    Quest 1: Miscellaneous (note, I forget which quest gives what).

    Analysis: Fairly balanced.
    5 Pots
    5 Moongate stones
    4 square boulders
    4 tapestries

    Quest 2: Furniture

    Analysis: Off kilter a bit.
    9 shelves (these wouldn't have been so bad, if they'd actually been containers, but they aren't)
    4 Pulleys
    3 coatracks
    2 canvas racks.

    Quest 3: Wooden Items

    Analysis: You're joking, right?
    9 Piles of Logs
    7 Dead Trees (which you can't even position in most containers, so you got to remove them all to see if anything is underneath them)
    1 Dishing Stump
    1 Pier piling

    Frankly, I'd have liked to have had 1 dishing stump for each of my forge areas (my two accounts with full-time crafters), plus one to keep for a set in my museum. And, I don't think I've ever seen a pier with ONE piling.

    Note that the sheer number presented means that at least one of my accounts produced nothing but trees and logs (actually, two of them did - I finished the set on my first, 7-character, account - and didn't start getting tapestries and coat racks with the other quests until I got to those accounts, either)

    I did the quests on 14 characters and this was the results:

    Quest 1: Miscellaneous

    5 Pots
    2 Moongate stones
    1 square boulders
    6 tapestries

    Quest 2: Furniture

    1 shelves
    3 Pulleys
    5 coatracks
    5 canvas racks.

    Quest 3: Wooden Items

    3 Piles of Logs
    3 Dead Trees
    0 Dishing Stump
    8 Pier piling

    I finally just gave in and bought a dishing stump off a vendor.

    Well I´ve done the mag quests with my 2 accounts too.
    The thing I got most are the coat racks followed by the rubble boulders (wich actually were quite annoying me, since I have 2 originals from magincia´s destruction....).
    I didn´t get a single pier piece nor shelves...lol.

    To me the drops it seem completly random.
