Alligators are hard to find - I think the swamp in Wolgast is the only source. They occur in very small groups - 10 would be a big group. They drop skulls quite freely but entrails hardly at all. Only 12 have ever been traded and only 1 is currently for sale at nearly 8m gold. However 8 are required for a single 'shard of putrescence'. Could I suggest that spawn rates for Alligators and drop rates for their entrails need to be reviewed? Maybe add a second location? Or have I missed something?

Bobtron's jungle white albino tiger has been eating them all.

Kill everything that isn't an alligator. There's some in Chulbran.
I am not amused.

Saurian Entrails and Mammoth Hearts seem to have the same problem - I havn't seen ANY of either yet.

I have got some (not many though) of both of those Huc so they do get dropped.

I second this suggestion.

Devs - please review. You have worked hard to make the new Spells available, which is great BUT...
Shard of Putrescence is punitively difficult to achieve. 

Shard of Putrescence needs 8 whole alligator entrails - which is pretty much all of them on the market today, due to the remarkable rarity of alligators AND the infrequency of them being dropped you have effectively done all this work for nothing.

I am working hard at getting the anatomies required for the other shards - which are hard enough as it is... but these Alligator Entrails are making the whole exercise rather pointless.

Please - change the number required AND increase the frequency of Alligators across the map.

They did say that they were going to be monitoring and tweaking both the scarcity of each NPC and the drop rates Prometheus. Post like yours are excellent at prompting them to do so. :)

Lets hope so - before when anatomies were only used to craft weapons it was different. Now that certain items are required for these new spells it would be a shame if nobody could use them because some items are so hard to find. 

I could understand if only 1 entrail were needed for this shard - but 8!  forget it.

Hucbold maybe I was lucky but I got 12 Mammoth hearts from a kill. So I guess it is possible. I send less troops maybe that is the key?
