Mudcrab polished shell shard not dropping...

I've personally have killed over 12,000 mudcrabs in the last week and haven't seen this drop yet. I understand that loot is through the RNG but I have talked to several other players and not one of them had gotten the item to drop either. Can you please verify that the item is in the monster's loot table or check the drop rate as a less than 0.01 % chance seems a bit high.

    Any luck? If so, where did you get it? I am trying to get "Polished Shell Shard" item drop at level 50 and keep grinding DLC areas.

    Nope up to about 22k kills on these and not a single drop. Been grinding the crabs NE of haven along that beach. And of course no answers from support.

    Got to be a monster trophy, which go back to beginning of game, though they didn't work well for a few months.

    OP, if you haven't gotten it after 22k, either you have the worst RNG ever, or it is truly an issue. Sounds like an issue, as surely it should have dropped for you. Keep after support.

    Chance of getting a trophy is ~0.2% from what I've heard, so RNG is indeed bad. Unless the said crabs are underleveled and don't drop anything by design.

    They disabled these trophies . You can't click them anymore and update .

    I get tons of garbage loot from these crabs. Just no shell shard, the crabs I'm killing are CP 70, I've even tried farming CP 160 crabs. I've put this aside for the past few months to clear other content but will probably start working on it again soon.

    My answer from support was:

    "Unfortunately, we do not have this information here at Technical Support for The Elder Scrolls Online.

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us."

    That's it. No help.

    Yup, what else would they do to get it? The drop rate of this trophy is ridiculously low.

    All of the monster ones take forever to get... but I have had a few pickups more recently though. Probably just luck.

    Not intentionally going out there to get them though, just killing mobs while questing. I reckon if you did that it'd feel like it's taking forever...
