Where do rare/legendary blacksmith plans drop?

Spig

Argh ok this is such an old question guys.

Suffix, prefix etc...

Anyway if you have 9 mobs spawn and say 4 of them are designated to drop certain white items.

Your MF will give you a better chance of those items being either magic, rare, set or unique. Sooo if you find a set of mobs that drop the WHITE version of a unique you really want get high MF and farm the hell out of those mobs until they drop it.

Make sense?


Great info. Just one more question. What does it have to do with this thread in any shape or form, at all, in any way, in the slightest, etc. etc.?

If you are looking for advice on what to cook for dinner you aren't really helped by someone telling you cars have wheels are you?

Your an idiot, what hes saying is that if you want a plan for say exalted weapon A and a certain area/monster type is notorious for dropping plain weapon A's,Then they should be the ones that drop the plan for said weapon.

Before you complain about drop rate, how much +MF do you have?
THere is actually a "luck" stat in this game, don't forget it

my blacksmith was lvl 7, i had around 70mf or so. found a rare exalted pallium plan.

this was in inferno A1 somewhere near butcher on a bridge.

I'm kind of curious if certain plans are act/area specific. Because I keep getting the same plans dropped over and over again in Act 1 Inferno. I get the Exalted pallium shoulder plans, and the Exalted Sovereign Helmet plans. I've gotten these 2 like 3 times each. All I do are the Butcher runs.

100+ hours in the game, I have never seen a blacksmith plan

So what is the conclusion? It seems most people in this thread have found plans in inferno. Only a few have been found in lower levels. Maybe probability for finding plans are higher in inferno? Or after you reach level 60? Or a combination of level, difficulty and magic find property?

You must have LUCK and MF to find plans and rares generally....
Inferno is the best farm in the game ....
Farm buy items.... farm buy items..... move to the next act doing the same again and the rares and the plans will come ;)

For what it's worth, I've gotten a fine (+5 stat) plan from act 1 inferno (was in the jail area) so the plans seem to follow the same droprate rules as other items (ie. a 2% chance of a ilvl 63 item in act 1 inferno). If my assumption is true then, in theory, you should be able to get a grand (+6) plan from act 1.

If i could find a spot in act 1 where mobs regularly drop WD specific items I'd try and grind that area for a bit, but alas, I've been clearing everything from the kazra barricades quest all the way up to the butcher and I get a WD specific item once in a blue moon.

Maybe we can share here where did we drop the plans ...

I have repeatedly dropped same plans over again at the same places:

(inferno act 1)

  • exalted soverign helm (5x)
  • exalted pallium (2x)
  • exalted dread shield (4x) (+1 butcher run, normal mob)


butcher run and on cementery from the skeleton

I think it is area specific what plan will drop.

--------------------------------------------------------------

(hell)

  • legendary crimson plan - act 2 / desolated sands / from defiled bones if i remember well

Same as above. +4 property Helm+shield and pallium like 2-4 each so far from 30 runs.

One fine sword plan from act2, cant remember where.

Got first grand plan (gloves <3) from act3 yesterday.

EDIT: Seems its somewhat area specific , graveyard + warden/butcher runs for those particular +4 items.

I've gotten all exalted armor plans as drops from normal monsters in Act1 inferno


are you serious? I bet I have farmed act 1 inferno 30 times and I have received 2 rares and 0 plans. In fact, 90+ hours in the game, I have never once seen a blacksmith plan, not even a white one.


same here, im almost 300 hours into the game, up to the butcher in inferno and i havent seen a SINGLE plan drop off ANYTHING other than the staff of herding plan off of Izual

I'm thinking it has something to do with your skill level of blacksmith.

Found helm of command plans in act 2 vile caverns, found black bones arrows in a R chest in act 2 a few days later (to my knowledge they are the best 2 plans) :D
