Silver Snake Skins

    Is there any trick to getting silver snake skins?

    I'm hunting in the Abyss in the eastern corner of the left half of the dungeon, just north of the bridge where there are maddening horrors. I'm getting quite a good swag of gems and venom, but no skins have dropped in several hours.

    Am I in the right area? Do I need to initiate some quest or other to receive the drop? Or is the true maddening horror the rarity of these skins?

    Try hunting in the Tomb of Kings. Occasionally killing a silver serpent will produce a skin on the corpse. Good Luck!!!

    I don't know my way in there but I'll look into it, thanks.


    Cheers, I worked it out and I got a skin on my first drop.

    I do Farmer Nash's quest. The are a lot of things to pull up but I usually get either the SS Skin or Venom off of the SS's. And as a bonus you get 5 of 2 types of gems and a couple things you can unravel. All-in-all a good quest.

    Pay attention to the capitalization of the snakes' names. Only in the Tomb of Kings or Farmer Nash's garden (Tomb of Kings is better for farming).

    In the very north of Ter Mur, where the High Land Bouras spawn (the hilly place) is a silver serpent nest with around 5-10 of them inside =))

    If i had a picture of Ter Mur I could show you where it is :///

    My information was gleaned from this page:

    Item Catalogue - Imbuing Resources

    "This item is obtained from Silver Serpents in Tomb of Kings and Stygian Abyss. Silver Serpents in Ter Mur and the old lands do not carry this item."

    I tried in the Abyss first because I already had access to it but no bounce, no play.

    Thanks everyone for the advice, I now have 10 skins, 120 shrooms and a whole pile of undying flesh. I can't believe how much people were charging for things so easy to obtain.

    No worries, that's handy to know as I might head out there for venom milking. :thumbup:

    Did they change this? I've gotten the skins off of the Silver Serpents in Ter Mur. I have a few, and I've never been to the places you mentioned. I'm going to make a trip later to Ter Mur, and see if I can get any.

    Tomb of Kings... you'll get enough pretty quickly.

    I'm also collecting enough grave dust and pig iron per trip to make up a keg or more of greater conflagration or greater confusion. So those, the gems, venom, gold, quest items, blue bone armour, and imbuing ingredients make it one of my new favourite hunting areas.

    Thanks everyone for the advice.
