Is /anyone/ finding these things?I'm now level 24, and I've not had a single adept drop that I can use. Ever. No one I have ever grouped with has had a drop for me, either. THough they all look constantly.I've never seen a spectral ward or a contagion spellbook for sale, and I've been eyeing the broker and the fence at least twice a day since I got the spells. I've also love to have ursine elder adept.. but again, never seen it.Most of my spells are app1 or app3 (with the exceptions being the really common ones, like spirit of the badger), because I simply can not find them. Anywhere.Help please? Where can I get them?

<DIV>Spirit of the Badger Adept 1 is so frequent on Lucan that it sells for 1sp +-.  I recall it dropping in either Crypt of Betrayal or deepest parts of Blackburrow.  I have Contagion,  and a few others adept 1.</DIV>

<DIV>I've personally looted Adept I books for Breath of Spirits, Phantasm and Wards of Shadow (lvl 28 spell).  I've bought Adept I books for Wailing Haze, Healing Ritual, Spirit of the Badger, and Delusion from player merchants.  I've seen other Adept I books for sale but didn't buy them because they were either stupidly overpriced or I already had an App3 version of the spell and didn't feel the upgrade was worth the cost.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>They're out there, you just gotta look around for them.  I'd suggest checking a Broker often, and also check the Fence in your city to see what your good/evil counterparts are selling.  Yeah you have to pay a hefty broker fee to buy from the other city (40% markup), but some spells drop alot more in the other city and vice versa.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

Yeah they are dropping, I have a few I've found and a few that our guild trades around. That's one thing that might help, if you have a group you 'hang' with often it's good to set up a need before greed policy. So if someone comes across a mystic spell they pass it along, likewise if you come across a warlock spell, you would pass that along.

<DIV>I personally have never been in a group when one has been dropped.  None.  I'm 24th level now and have spent lots of time in Blackburrow, Stormhold, Crypt of Betrayal and Thundering Steppes.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>You can find Spirit of Badger and about 4 others always for sale, though (Qeynos).  But I don't think that's a good sign, necessarilly - kinda looks like lots of those particular ones drop and nothing else.  Can't be right, surely?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I heard the other day that a different set of them drop on the 'evil' side (around Freeport), so I checked with the black market and, sure enough, got two that I had never seen for sale in Qeynos.  Had to pay 80s for one of them, though *sigh*</DIV>

<DIV>Shaman Spells are a problem on Crushbone as well.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Contagion App 3 goes for 50-80s. Contagion Adebt 1 is unheard off.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Wailing Haze Adebt 1 = 1.16g from the broker.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Spectral Ward Adebt 1 = 1g.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Only ones I have seen drop were Spirit of the Badger and Wards of Spirit and Breath of Spirits, all the others are extremely rare, and overpriced to such a degree that normal Adventurours cannot afford it.</DIV>

It is an essential resource for pre 20 spells as adept drops are divided up by cities.Still Contagion and Spectral Ward are the rares of the pre 20 spells for both cities.

<DIV>I've got Adept versions of most of my spells, mostly through playing my Conjuror through AQ5 and funding my Shaman with the drops I acquired, but I agree; there is some outrageous pricing out there.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>People want gp for Adept 1's like there's one worth that much, across any Class...sub 25.</DIV> <DIV>It's pretty ridiculous, but like all new economy's...it's in flux. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV><p>Message Edited by fearGod777 on <span class=date_text>12-07-2004</span> <span class=time_text>11:12 AM</span>

<DIV>I've found a bunch of them for sale on the Najena server and even had one drop in a group fighting bloodsabre's in Vermins. What really bothers me though is that I NEVER see Spectral Ward Adept one's. They never drop and I never see them for sale either on the Qeynos broker or on the black market. I sometimes see Wards of Spirit (group ward) but Spectral Ward is our bread and butter spell and it really boggles me that I never at least see it for sale. My habit is to log out near the brokers so checking them is always the first thing I do and the last thing I do. Heck, even my higher level guildies who are up over 30th now have never seen them.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Surely these things are out there somewhere?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Mike</DIV>

I'm starting to think that some of the adepts are intended to be very rare when compared to others. It seems interesting that one of our most important ones are difficult to get a holf of (yet they do still drop, although rarely when compared to other adepts).

<DIV>Thanks for the Info on the Fench, I had Visited her earlier, without knowing she was the Blackmarket Broker.../shrug</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>She did help, as I was able to Get the Grey Wind Adebt 1. Contagion and Wailing Haze was still selling for a Bizarre 1.15g-1.60g Wich IMO is crazy for a lvl 10ish spells.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Guess I will wait for the upgrades and then simply start looking for their Adebts.</DIV>

<DIV>I managed to get a great deal on Keening Haze (25 slow i believe). something like 40sp for the Adept1. It definitely works wonders. I had Miasma (28 disease DoT) drop in a grp for me, and the lvl 29 power buff as well (forgot name). I found Badger and grp ward and heal for cheap, and one time i saw Adept 3 Spec Ward for like 5gp on the BM broker. Other than these, I've never seen a single Shammy adept, and I check the brokers and auction channel religiously.</DIV>

<DIV>I had Contagion Adept 1 in beta.. but now I have yet to see one.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Today I found a Silver Cluster on the Broker for a gold and grabbed it. Now I have a shiny Adept 3 Ward.  Total cost was 1gp30sp, 2 Tubers and the 3 Belladonna I had left in my pockets <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>
