I recently returned to EQ after a 6 + year break, and decided to take the weekend to attempt to farm these for my beast lord. After 2 days and thousands of kills I have gotten 0 drops of any armor variety. This caused me to open a petition to make sure they are not broken and in the extremely quick response I was advised to come here as the drops are not broken supposedly just extremely rare. Sorry but with several thousand kills and non one drop they seem a bit to rare. My suggestion other than to look into the drop rate is just to make things simple. Add all ornaments to the db store that are more than 2 expansions old.
