Music Box, in Dreams and Memories

This antiquity has three pieces, I have been looking for the golden part, the preserved music box mechanism. I already have the other two parts.

According to information on the internet, its lead can be found in safeboxes in Glenumbra and Greenshade, and I choose Greenshade for my hunt. However, after looting about 30 safeboxes, which took quite some time, still nothing found. So, I was wondering if someone could confirm if the lead do drop in safeboxes in Greenshade.

I could also look for it in Glenumbra, but a lot of people are already farming there.
Thanks.

    I'm wondering this as well. I got the first part (can't remember where) and I noticed in my scrying journal that it appears under Auridon, Grahtwood and Summerset. Confusing.

    Yes, I understood the golden part can be excavated in Grahtwood. But it does not mean the lead is also found there.

    I got mine from Shornhelm. There were literally 10+ Safeboxes in that city because no one else was farming it. Those lists aren't comprehensive; there's very clearly a lot of places this drops from. Good luck!

    I got mine in Stonefalls after trying Grahtwood and Glenumbra. I think you just have to persevere, which can be hard when everyone in creation is trying for it and not many safeboxes are available.

    I just got mine from Stonefalls and it took less than 20 safeboxes.

    It can drop from any safe box. I can't remember which zone I finally got mine in, but I went down the alphabet and was starting back at the beginning when I finally got that lead.

    I am actually glad i am not only one have serious issues Trying to find preserved music box mechanism
    I use my maxed ''legerdemain'' and Thieves Guild NB to do all my stealing and lockpicking. I have now done this week alone! 5 days a week around 300+ Lockboxes. and still 0! on the preserved music box mechanism
    Starting think this item is broken and it will not drop!
    Strange thing is i am having issues with this same item(lead) on both EU and NA.
    Getting annoying and sick of trying.

    It does drop. I got it twice already. But you will get rich in the process.

    I'm probably going to have Black Market Moghul before I get all the music boxes I want.

    This lead can be found anywhere in safeboxes.

    I looted over 200 safeboxes before getting it :(

    It does exist...

    Took about 180k gold of fencing almost entirely safebox loot, whatever that might equate to in safeboxes.

    I think it’s easier to get now than when this was being discussed in 2020 — fewer people farming for it and you can get the lead from safeboxes across different zones (it used to be more limited or I thought it was and regularly combed the safeboxes in Daggerfall). Since then, I’ve collected eight more music boxes without deliberately farming for it. :)

    Greetings,

    We have closed this topic as it was originally created in June 2020. In many cases, it's better to create a new thread on a topic that you want to discuss as opposed to bumping one that is rather old.

    Thank you for your understanding.
