    I have been killing a lot of the local wildlife, and have not seen a pristine head. Are they srill dropping or is the drop rate that low?


    Raxer.

    re: the above post's link, there's a link at the end that has a Dev's take on drop rates. Fun read.

    @Sounder : Which head are you looking for? I've got several pristine wolf heads if you want one. In fact, I just got another Pristine Timber wolf head today.

    Maybe I have them all? :p

    I haven't been hunting for them much lately to say they are all dropping... but I know the Obsidian Bear Heads definitely are. I got 3 of those in one outing of killing OB's for meat last week.

    I have a small collection of heads... if you need something specific, let me know.

    Well if any of you are lucky enough to pull pristine polar bear heads and would like to sell them, I'm interested!

    That's just my leftovers. I think I have one of everything mounted so far except all the different dragons (and not all the new fish yet).

    Heading out from work now, but I'll post some screen shots of my mounted trophies later.

    I see you have quite the collection yourself though! ;)

    @Bzus ,

    https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...ad-drop-in-sanctus-spine.136911/#post-1116007

    I'm posting this request here because the other thread was locked and didn't feel it was my place to request directly, but... the placement of the teleporting mage at the other entrance has removed 4 key polar bears spawning : the two directly ahead to the left near the tree, one of the bears ahead on the path, and somehow one of the polar bears that spawn past the left arch then to the left, where the cotton bush and tree is, they used to fight with archers... lotsa fun to get caught in the middle of. Thank you very much if this helps,

    they still drop but just not as often as they used to. First time they did a Trophy contest they nerfed the head drop. Hell i been playing for two years and still never have gotten a few of them. Polar Bear and Arctic wolf. With the advent of new creatures and changing dragon heads to colored heads they never bothered to check. Even the second Trophy Contest it was almost impossible to get pristine heads.

    They do. I got one not too long ago in the troll bridge encounter.

    [edit] Also, one of the Port devs said they would be increasing the number of large polar bears (I didn't even know that these existed), so that should make them a bit easier to get.
