so i caught on to the whole new cow level thing until it was too late. i bought the pattern for NIGHTMARISH staff of herding before i got the normal version and taught it to the bs. now after HOURS of izzy runs the staff will not drop. the runs take me a total of around 1 minute to 1 minute and 15 seconds, depends if my teleport bugs into a wall, and it still wont drop. my friend jumped in on literally one run with me and it dropped for him. so blizz im wondering if theres a glitch in the code where the normal staff plans wont drop if ur bs already knows how to make the nightmarish version.

bump this up please i want to enjoy rainbow land lmao

Quick question about the staff if anyone knows does it use the items required to make the staff? Liek do I have to find the black mushroom again for higher difficulty staffs?

Actually, I learned the Nightmare plans first before I got the Normal ones. After about 5 runs in Normal from killing Izzy, he dropped the Normal plans for me. I just can't seem to get Chiltara to spawn though... Good luck!

Yep, confirmed that this is not the case. I was in the same boat as you.

Took me about 15 attempts yesterday, and I was wondering the whole time if I'd screwed up learning the Nightmare pattern first.

Keep at it. <3

I've done dozens and dozens of Izual runs and still haven't seen the recipe for the normal staff. Is anyone aware of any requirements for the staff to drop, factors that change the drop rate, etc.? I'm starting to think there's a curse. Or a bug.

Same problem here. I guess I will keep trying.

It's all random chance, unfortunately. I got all the ingredients relatively quickly, excluding the gemstone - took about an hour and thirty minutes to get the right cave with the correct rare mob.

I stumbled upon the black mushroom and the plans, in fact I got the normal staff plans off nightmare Izual without farming it, just by chance. It seems unless you're super lucky, there will be at least one ingredient of the staff quest in which you spend a few hours.

I'm not sure if Chiltara only spawns in the caverns of frost level 2, but there's where all the videos I have seen him at, and where I found him at.

Good luck!

Thanks for this tread, I'll keep on farming.
