Are replicas really that common now?

    Maybe they didn't know what it was?
    Maybe a rich guy dropped it who already has like 3 or more?

    Either way, it is one of the crappier ones.

    I like the knife its got some use in it.

    Tamer with luck suit and explosion potions not a bad use for it.

    People also throw away Cavorting Clubs... But not the Shield of Invulnerability. A Totem of the Void goes on the vendor while Windsong goes on the ground.

    Some artifacts just aren't worth hanging onto. They make the good ones rarer, at any rate.

    Argh! Some people have all the luck! Hate doing Oaks...

    My theory is that the Trammelites have been doing these spawns so often that the shared replicas among them have become quite less rare.

    I do the spawns at Humility in Ilshenar almost everyday.

    Not sure how many I complete each day, but as many as I have time for...usually from beginning to end. My hunting companion is either my greater dragon or dread mare.

    I haven't received a drop in quite some time now, either Deco or Replica. Even SoT's have stopped popping up in my backpack, where I was getting one usually and on a rare occasion two or three.

    I will keep doing the spawns regardless, as they are alot of fun....even if frustrating at times. The drop situation is getting a bit discouraging, though.

    My theory is that the only common replicas are from the vermin spawn, oak leaf robe(still sells well because its popular), rectal thermometer(fang of rectal...wont sell for 100k on GL), boots(popular so sell), slime statues(dont realy sell on GL), swamp tiles(pixle crack trammies/fellies like these).

    The knife is very nice...very very nice, i know a thief who likes it, 25ep disarm and poison...very very nice. My tamer uses it as well.

    My bet is that someone is kicking themselves and they accidently dropped it, ive seen it done with 1mil checks and we all know they still valuable :p

    Tamers always have got less SOT drops than others, they cant kill the spawn fast enough like a necro wither or a swordsman holylight/whirlwind, or a sw with a focus essence of wind.

    It seems to be based on the speed you kill the spawn(so more drop at once more SOT's you get). I had a run of bad luck for an age with 0 replics, then did 2tram oaks got a .5taming first run, orc chieften helm second, went to fel oaks, wind spirit!

    Bet i now have another year without one :p
