    What's your toon on Test, Cyrrena? Or is it toons? :)

    I've had some better luck rustling up the Bench, though it's almost as rare as the Kelp Fiend (/glaring in general at devs for insisting on rares in the first place; we don't have Vox or The Bazaar any more...). ;->

    Dunno about where the prime areas will be on Live, but for me, I've had the most luck in the Fina's Retreat area (Icy Fingers, from the Thurgadin flight master). :)

    who needs to get back to Test before too long... ;->

    [BUG] I was running my new level 100 heroic through the harvesting/tradeskill tutorial in Timorous Deep, and the area around the celebrating othmir had ZERO shells anymore. They were there (only half-submerged due to the shallow water) the other day, but tonight they are utterly missing.

    If you are talking about the Oceansfull shells, the first day I was doing them in TD there were no shells in the shallow water, I had to swim pretty far out in the deeper waters to the...north I think without logging in and looking, out towards where one of the patchwork crabs spawn during Bristlebane day. There were plenty of them there in the deeper water.

    Maybe the drop rate for the bench was improved I just got one on the 4th try in Antonica.
    and another 4 minutes later in Commonlands.
    and another lol:confused: try it now.
    If anything , there are now to many beaches dropping I got 6 within 10 minutes , most in Commonlands
    Maybe that's the Benchlands.

    ok I just went to Timorous deep and saw no shells in the shallows so I went for a swim in the deeper area
    bye the time I came back up I not only found shinies but also lots of shells sticking out of the water near the Osmiers.

    If anything than I think the illusions are the hardest to find.

    I have 15 on Test now Uwk. I have a Cyrrena there that I usually play the most even though her adventure level would not prove that. =)

    Yeah, over half of spawn points in Timorous Deep are in deeper waters. I assure you, they are just as plentiful in this zone as they are in the others, and with the same respawn rate.

    Meh, I had far better luck with the ones in the abyssal plain by Fina's Rest, and at least, they were all at the same nice broad level. TD had too many ups and downs for me, literally. ;) The only drawback was getting up from there in time if I had to rely on a Totem of the Otter. :-/

    Though I do like the ones peeking out of the shallow waters at TD, it seems that the "pearl" where the gifty is seems to be a particle effect? If the pearl was underwater and I wasn't, it didn't show up at all visually for me; I had to rely on the cursor change to see where my loot was. ;->

    Ok, I guess I didn't swim out far/deep enough there. I'll give it another go later. I want/need more illusions (they seem to be the rarest, or Bristlebane is toying with me) as the heroic Test 100 I made on the second account wants to stay otter-fied at all times. While the illusion persists through death (yep, intentionally suicided to test it), I want a couple extra in case of dispels and such.

    I definitely agree there; the illusions very rarely show, even in a case where I could get like 10 baskets of shells (either type, you name it ;->), 7 Othmir Fishing Stands, etc., etc., etc., and be very lucky to get one illusion. :-/

    After the first toon to go clamming, I pretty much shrugged and figured I'd just focus on the 16 house items/pets, rather than bothering with the two Appearance weapons and two illusions. If I get them, I'll rejoice, but if I don't, I'll move on. ;->

    of the Multitudinous Horde ;)

    Woogah...most recent Clammer got 65 Clams opened before he finally got a Kelp Fiend. Way after getting both illusions and several of the Appearance weapons (nine, to be exact [kept two, one of each, for personal use ;->]; most Rusty, the Barnacle seems to be the rare there). :(

    We really need a higher span rate ,or more shinnies in Commonlands
    Even with the second area it can become a challenge because this is the only zone that the rare piece spans in.

    ok, ok, who turned on the rare shiny faucet ?
    I got more broken crowns in 5 minutes than yesterday in 2 hours.
    Don't ever say the people behind programmers ( the powers ) are not listening.

    You need to find all 4 areas and then the spawn rate seems fine.

    Lady Tkia there are 5 zones and only one of those has this group of 3 shinnies Commonlands.
    Commonlands has collectables in 2 groups as in 2 areas, and only after I said something did the span rate pick up.

    Are you on the progression server by any chance? This set spawns in 3 different zones in total but 2 won't be on the prgression server yet.

    And I was only talking about CL. I found nodes in 4 different places when I was testing what seemed like a broken respawn mechanic. It was fine.
