    Good to know. I've killed over 270 now and never gotten a drop. I was really wondering if they still dropped or not.

    Edit: Finally got a bell at around 350 kills.
    (I alternate between multi and party mode to farm. The drop happened in party mode.)

    Is something wrong with the Reaper in Greymark Forest?
    It is not respawning.

    I've noticed the most popular (most widely found) Reaper spawns slowly compared to the other three.
    It seems I've made the other three mad because they kill me on site and spawn a lot quicker to kill me again.

    During the Sota Outage last week, I was in Greymark when the game kicked me off. I immediately logged back on and was fortunate enough to be resumed inside a Reaper. I think that just made him crazy mad at me. Oops!!!

    Is there a multiplayer vs. solo/party difference in the drop rates? Not thinking of conspiracy theories, just wondering about drop mechanics. @Chrystoph Reis were you in multi?

    Good question. I've been farming these solely in private mode, and I've yet to get a cowbell. My count is approaching 400.

    Multi for 2 drops. Party for one.

    One thing I was doing in between spawns was clearing barbarians and skellies... I know most people don't do that.

    I agree the drop rate is very rare.

    Drizzet finally got one two nights ago! In-game rarity is always the best and most cherished rarity.
