Gibbering Gemstone Help

Posts: 52
I've been farming this forever, and I've convinced myself that I'm doing something wrong. I'm doing Act 3, Part 6, finding the Caverns of Frost, and going to Level 2, and I never find the mob I need.

Is it really just that random of a mob? And when the mob does spawn, is there a 100% chance for the drop? This is the last ingredient I need, it's annoying!

Yes, there is a 100% chance for it to drop.

The mob's spawning is random, in either level one or two.

took me a long time to get the mob to spawn too, but when the mob dies it is a 100% drop rate. Keep at it, I think I spent 2-3 hours straight going to that place.

Chiliatra doesn't spawn on level 1, just an fyi. It only took me a good 30 minutes before finding her. Just keep doing it over and over again. It is a 100% drop rate off her.

Whats the plan drop rate off of Izual? (Thankfully he's there 100% of the time)

Izual is always there, as he's a 'boss' or whatever, but just keep going at it with the caverns of frost.. I spent between 2-3 hours straight of farming before I got chiltara to spawn, 100% drop rate once he does

Finding the Caverns of Frost is the easy part... as you already know, finding the boss is the hard one and most time consuming. A friend and I were both going for the staff at the same time, so we made separate games and went hunting. It went rather fast as both of us were looking for it, and when I found it in the second game I made, I told him to join me. I think we got lucky that Chiltara actually spawned in the second game I made, she was on the second level.

I've seen different people say that the gibbering gemstone only drops on the second floor; others say that it drops on the first floor as well. Does Chiltara spawn on the second floor only?

Just out of curiosity, those farming the plans, you guys do realize it can be bought from the Gorell the Quartermaster. He doesn't always sell it but you can just leave and enter again.

The plans he sells are used to upgrade the Normal Mode Staff of Herding to higher difficulties, unlocking Whimsyshire for those difficulties.

I got a the stone but what is it for?

Just out of curiosity, how many runs did you guys have to do before you found the mob? I'm not exaggerating when I say I've probably done 80 unsuccessfully...

is not 100% drop rate at all it did not drop on my last kill :P

this game has to just hate me or something. I am on run 10,000 (just a bit of an exaggeration) and Chiltara has only appeared once. and after I killed her, she didnt drop the gem, so its not 100% drop rate. Im starting to get fed up with this BS. Im going to the right cave while on act 3 part 6, clearing both levels completely, and NOTHING! then I hit leave game, re-choose my quest so it resets everything and run it again... still nothing after hundreds of runs. any pointers?

I just found the gemstone on Floor 2. My technique was to scale the right wall until I touched every wall in the cave... Yes I did this for floor 1 too because I heard rumors it could drop there as well. But I found the rare boss on the 2nd Floor on my 21st attempt and the 12th attempt in the frost cave (not every game had the frost cave). Good luck!
