    While the jury is out on whether One Tamriel will be good or bad for the game, it will definitely be good for those who are chasing the often elusive monster trophies. OT should put right the awful gaffe zos made when monster trophies could no longer be swapped between alts through the bank. That move made these achievements nearly impossible for one character to complete. But if the advertised zone scaling for OT becomes a reality, no monster will ever be out-leveled. This is especially good news for EP characters looking for nix hounds, kagouti, etc. This thread has been about the best locations to farm monster trophies. I wonder if prime locations will be overrun with trophy farmers from all 3 alliances. At least OT should mean the end of DSA runs for EP alts for nix hounds.......that was totally ridiculous.

    RNG can be a b i t c h. We all know this. I've killed thousands of welwa in Craglorn and never had a nirn drop, but I know it can happen. Same applies to the monster trophies you seek. Best advice is keep at it.......sooner or later you will get your drop.

    Not in a while. I have the same issue with the Flawless Tailfeather from the harpies. Meanwhile I get a Petrified Spider Egg fairly regularly.

    Sorry to necro this thread. It is an amazing guide for collectible collecting lol. I have a couple of questions if anyone who has info would be willing to share.

    Under undead hoarder, my collectible is called "crypt jar" but in the guide it's listed as tomb urn, and falls from sand humans. When I go to the spots listed I see "ancient warrior" "ancient mage"
    Etc. are these people considered sand humans?

    Any good spots to farm wraiths? Forgotten crypts sucks with all the beginners running through it.

    Has anyone gotten the spider crown outside of cold harbor? I've don't wgt hundreds of times, never had it drop from a spider dadera there. But, I've also killed spiders in cold harbor for 10 hours or so with no luck. Anyone gotten spider crown lately? If so where.

    Any updated tips on cruel collar? I know it's from jackyls but I can't seem to find a lot of them anywhere.

    Same with nierderths? Any spot with a lot of them?

    Can anyone share where and what they got polished shell shard from? I've killed 1000s of mud crabs.. are blue ones the one I am after?

    Any other tips always are appreciated for the threads too, but thanks for any replies!

    Yes both refer to same collectible. And yes, those are the mobs to farm.

    Try Westtry in Glennumbra. I did get mine in Forgotten crypts.
    Has anyone gotten the spider crown outside of cold harbor?
    I'm sure they have, but this is probably the best place. It's a tough drop and there are lots there to kill.
    Any updated tips on cruel collar?
    Craglorn on both sides of Belkarth. They were put there just for that drop. Can't hardly kill a mob without getting the drop.
    Same with nierderths? Any spot with a lot of them?
    Say what? check your spelling, no idea what this is? edit, okay I think this is what you want....nereid >>> Nereid Temple (S-W of Dread Vullian in Greenshade, follow the road)
    Can anyone share where and what they got polished shell shard from? I've killed 1000s of mud crabs.. are blue ones the one I am after?
    Can be a tough drop, but any crab can drop it.

    Doing these collectibles got much easier with 1T, since everything is at your level, and it's much easier to travel to the mob you're hunting. Like much of this game, RNG is a big factor. I've gone hours trying for a drop with nothing, and other times got a drop right away. I've found that if you aren't getting a drop, or catching fish, or whatever RNG item, stop for awhile. Either try a different activity, different character, or take a break. It can reset your RNG to the other end of the spectrum. Other than that, be persistent. They all drop eventually. GL.

    I've gotten it on a non-collecting alt from WGT.

    I got this in either Auridon or Grahtwood, although I'm sorry to say I have no idea what creature it dropped from. I've just started playing ESO in earnest several weeks ago, and am currently cleaning out my bags so have just decided to look it up to see whether it was valuable or useful in any way.

    Found this thread, learned it was for an achievement, thought I'd let you know I was questing in Auridon/Grahtwood at the time it dropped (am now in Greenshade so it was definitely one of the two zones mentioned).

    @Miss_Tiffany I'd keep it just in case you can mount it in your house next patch. Given it's rarity.


    I did the Wrothgar quest dailies on 6 characters for 3 months and so in that one dungeon killed approximately 1 jillion durzogs (they're those lizard-dogs that goblins always have around) and don't recall getting one.

    You almost certainly got your Scaly Durzog Hide from Auridon public dungeon. It's a good site to farm, since spawn rate is high and there are a lot of Durzogs.

    You'd think Wrothgar would also be a good location, but seems it's not. Needs some complaint tickers sent in, or that will never change.

    Argh I have already sold it to a vendor it :s I did check that it counted toward the achievement though!

    I'm vegan in real life so the chances of me hanging beast hides in my house are slim to none anyway.

    Lets just ignore the fact that I've been killing so many beasts in the first place :D

    And I've just been staring at the map to try and remember where it dropped. It was the first one to drop of three, so it was definitely Auridon. And I think was inside a cave/delve.

    EDIT: Just checked a few places and I think it dropped in Toothmaul Gully.

    I was going to say it couldn't have been a dungeon as the queue times are too long, so I have never done one as yet! But I did stealth my way through Toothmaul Gully for a skyshard so it would have been there haha

    @ChuckyPayne
    Westtry in Glennumbra ia a good spot for Wraiths. Just be aware this is quest area.

    For Crypt Jar, try Tu'whacca's Throne above Goat's Head Oasis Wayshrine in Alik'r. This is also a quest area. A good spot is the western wing. There are many fast spawning mobs guarding the entrance to the final quest boss, so you make life easier for questers by killing them. This seems to be a tough drop; I went through 3 or 4 levels getting mine, so be prepared for a grind. Wraith Shackle can also be a grind, since there are never high numbers of Wraiths anywhere.

    I've played since closed beta and this is the first claw I've gotten on any of my 12 max level characters. Despite the delve's name it's a tiny place with bears and ogres in it that respawn very fast.

    I've been playing ever since the PC beta 3 1/2 years ago and am still hunting down some of the trophies. One question I have, is it seemed when the Chitin Accumuilator came out, the calcified cuttle required a Transmuted Kwama Warrior, which are normally bosses. From some of the posts I've read it seems as though the trophy is dropping from normal Kwama Warriors. Is this in fact the case?

    Calcified Cuttle dropped for me in Darkshade Caverns 1. I was looting the kwama workers, so unless there was a dead kwama warrior nearby I thnik it's safe to say that kwama workers also drop calcified cuttle?

    I've been farming for the Crypt Jar for a year now. It's the last one I need for my undead hoarder. I ended up getting in the same week Multifaceted eye, malformed kagouti tusk and the calcified cuttle from Vvardenfell and a random dungeoun run of Darkshade Caverns instead, I'm really happy I got these out of the way, because they were the most I was dreading, but the crypt jar is just taking every ounce of patience out of me.
