I killed him about 40 times so far and still no plans so few questions.

1. Could me learning nightmare plans before getting normal screw things up?
2. Does he drop normal plans on all difficulties or only on normal?
3. How low is his drop chance?

I got all the rest things to make the staff but those plans are driving me maaaaad + it is getting pretty annoying getting to izual, wish there was a bit faster way. Thanks for all the help.

The plan is the same on every diferculty.

If you want to unlock NM/Hell...etc You buy the recpie from a vendor in act 3 (From act 4) and then learn it and trade in the staff and some G for it.

Problem is getting the NORMAL version of the plan, does nightmare and hell izual drop it or only normal izual and should it take 50 + attemps, in other question do I just have bad luck or could it be bugged (possible coz I learnt nightmare plans but don't have normal yet?)

Could be bad luck :p.... i got my plans on my second normal Izaul run (third if you count the original story one), but the rainbow thingy took me literally one hour and half of trying for that alchemist to spawn and then for the misterious chest to spawn as well.

Yeah you see, thats the thing- there are 2 sorts of people, 1 they get it either most of the time or within 5 kill attempts and 2nd sort where I am those who killed him 50+ times and it did not dropped, I just want to know if I have that bad luck or if it could be bugged (caused by fact I learnt nightmare plans before I have normal)?

I killed Izual yesterday evening, repeatedly on normal.
Easy and fast to farm.
After a few kills, the plans dropped.

I got them off him on the first kill on normal the other night. Now I need to bother looking for where to find the stuff for him. It can all be found in nightmare right?

ok thx, diablo is certainly faster to kill than izual, it is just weird that I killed him 50+ times and still no plans :/ could be bad luck but still. Anyway thx all for help.

I had the plans drop on Hell Izual on solo game i think. Then started making the staff for both me and a friend. Killed Izual on normal at least 4-5 times, plans dropped for me 3 times, for him never. I guess its just luck.
