The Archon Armor recipe (the chest piece) can be purchased from Squirt the Peddler for 1.5 million gold. The other plans will drop randomly in the world, but also have a 50% chance to drop off the following bosses when you have five stacks of Nephalem Valor:
Read the patch notes next time and you can then make an informed post without looking silly.
(azmo does not drop the new plans, ROFL.)
Also, its not a flat 50%, it depends on your MP level, heres the notes:
•Crafting Plans and Jeweler Designs have been added for all of the new Rare recipes listed above
•These plans (excluding the chest piece) will drop randomly in the world and have a chance to drop off the following bosses when you have 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor:
•The drop rate from the above bosses will also scale according to your Monster Power level:
•MP 0: 20%
•MP 1: 23.2%
•MP 2: 26.912%
•MP 3: 31.218%
•MP 4: 36.213%
•MP 5: 42.007%
•MP 6: 48.728%
•MP 7: 56.524%
•MP 8: 65.568%

He might need to pick the right boss before he worries about the odds.
"I got bad luck, therefore, game is broken!"
I am sure Blizzard would lie about what has been implemented in the game.
Why do People continue to believe this is true? Like what motive would they have to lie about the drop rate of something. "The droprate is 50% (but it's actually .01% MUAHAHAHA)....like why would they do that?
Plus, from an above post, I am pretty sure it isn't even 50%, it's adjusted based of MP lvl or something as far as I remember.
Think of it this way for 4 kills, you actually have 16 possible outcomes:
Y=Drop, N=No drop
1) N N N N
2) N N N Y
3) N N Y N
4) N N Y Y
5) N Y N N
6) N Y N Y
7) N Y Y N
8) N Y Y Y
9) Y N N N
10) Y N N Y
11) Y N Y N
12) Y N Y Y
13) Y Y N N
14) Y Y N Y
15) Y Y Y N
16) Y Y Y Y
There is 1 case where you get 0 drops (#1).
There are 4 cases where you get 2 drops, #4, #7, #10, #14.
20 kills is a more complicated case, but it all reduces to a statistical formula.
Regardless of what each creature drops, having a 50% probability of getting a drop doesn't mean that you'll get one if you kill two.
It means that each time you kill one, you'll have a 50/50 chance to get one.
As each time is independent from the rest, it can happen that you'll never, ever get one, no matter how many times you try.
The wikipedia has a decent article about it:

I don't even know why you care about the recipes. I've spent about 30 million gold on the new recipes so far and nothing is better than what I already had.
I'm occasionally put some of my crafted gear on because I feel bad wasting so much gold on them. It sucks wasting so much gold only to lose a ton of EHP or DPS.
