Hey guys, decided I would build a guide on how to get each peice required for the staff since there isn't much direct info out there yet.
For those who don't know the staff leads to the new version of the "cow level" And is crafted using 5 rare items and a rare recipe, you need 150,000 gold total for the normal version of this staff.
- Found Inside of the fireplace in Leroic's Manor (Click on the burnt logs)
The Black Mushroom
- Found in the cathedral, most commonly floor 1 (Click mushroom pile)
- Inside of a mysterious cave in act 2 (Dahlgur Oasis)
- Bought for 100,000 gold from Squirts in the Act 2 Bazaar
- Drops from Chiltara in the Caves of Frost(Found after Bridge of Korsikk)
Plans: Staff of Herding
The recipe to craft the staff is a drop from Izual (Act 4 Boss)
Once all 6 items are obtained, open the window of your blacksmith and right click the pattern to learn it, you can now craft it under the weapon section.
Now that it is crafted, you must visit The Ghost of the Cow king on old tristram road in Act 1, he will have a brief dialog with you and then open the path to Whimsyshire, the magical land of rainbows and ponies.
When you move onto nightmare or later you can upgrade the staff to get better loot and tougher challenges, this involves buying the recipe in act 4 final quest and paying 200k to upgrade to nightmare, 500k for hell and 1 mill for inferno.
Good luck on the farming and enjoy slaying the over friendly beasts!!!

For the rainbow liquid, my spot was basically in the same yours was in the video. Far lower right.
Also for the black mushroom, identical looking room with 2 entrances and found on the first floor. My advice would be to just keep going to cathedral level 1 because it's really tiny heh. Got it on about 3 tries searching all floors.
Now what about the gemstone! That's the last bit for me and random drop doesn't help heh.
Each game mode has its own version of the staff, for example on nightmare you need to get everything again and ALREADY have the normal version, at least this is what I understand, I havent gotten to that exact point yet, but I believe thats how it works, get all the stuff again plus have the old version to make the new version.
