Diablo® III

** Staff of Herding **

Been farming on and off since release for the liquid rainbow... Nothing. Does this even drop... ffs.

Hours and hours wasting away..... ffs.


It doesn't drop from mobs, and it doesn't drop from a resplendent chest. You go to the Dahlgur Oasis and head to the little alcove a short distance from the entrance of the Oasis, on the south side of the map. Every now and then you will find a merchant being attacked by some ghost. Kill them, and go into the Mysterious Cave.

In the Mysterious Cave, on the first floor, is something called a "Mysterious Chest". It glows like a resplendent chest, but only drops the Liquid Rainbow. I think it took me less than 10 tries, and assembling the staff entirely was a couple hour ordeal.

I never got the plans on normal on my first run through. Just beat Diablo on nightmare, got nightmare plans and used just those on the blacksmith, then learned I needed to have plans and all the other items with me to make the staff. Now after a good 15x with Izual, nada for normal plan drop. Am I screwed?

I think you simply need to take your nightmare plans and normal staff to the blacksmith. But I'm having my own issues so I'm just taking an edumacated guess :)

afaik you don't need to be able to equip it, the cow king appears when I just have the staff in my inventory.


It's not working that way for me. I just got the staff of heading, with a Barbarian. He can't equip it. And when it's in his inventory, nothing happens. Any advice?

Just tried equipping it with a low-level wizard (6), and just to cover this base, a brand-new entry-level wiz (level 1), and I can't seem to figure how to activate this staff !

AHH! You have to go killing wretched mothers in Act I, and the Ghost of the Cow King appears above his skeleton along that path, and offers you a visit, opening the portal. (Maybe that instruction appears somewhere else online, but I couldn't find it.)

Everyone can use it, you don't equip as a weapon, you just put it in your inventory, then when you walk up to the fissure, click on the carcass of the dead cow, and the ghost of the cow king, appears, and talks with you, then when he's done talking, the fissure starts to radiate a glowing rainbow of colors, and is a "clickable" and teleports you to Whimseyshire.

Every character can go there, as long as they have the correct staff, and have beaten the game on that difficulty level. DON'T TRY TO EQUIP AS WEAPON, JUST KEEP IN INVENTORY!!!!

I have been wondering since the recent update to diablo 3 is there any point to upgrading the staff anymore? I have been able to use the first level staff to open the level even on the top level of difficulty

From what I know one actually can't update it anymore... vendor wont sell me the update plans.
Reply Quote
Yeah the upgrade plans are gone now, so if you didn't upgrade staff before you can only make the normal one.

My issue is I've done about 100 Izual runs so far and still haven't gotten the plans. I have all the other items just need the plans sadly.

With the Liquid Rainbow, i have only found the merchant once after 5 regualr gameplays and in addition to 15+ map reloads to look for him and not once have i gotten the item at all. Also with the Gibbering Gemstone i have found Chiltara only ONCE as well and that was just recently and the Gibbering Gemstone was not dropped either.

I have the other materials (black mushroom, the bell and leorics shinbone) i just need help finding the blasted things also hints and tips on how to get them as well
