Pure DistillateFollow

I am an Apothecary. A couple of my recipes call for Pure Distillate. Since I couldn't find it on a vendor, I looked it up... and supposedly the recipe for it is acquired through a quest item that drops from flowers in Scarwood Reach. Well, I spent several hours tonight picking flowers with no luck. I found the wood, butchering, and outfitting quest items, but not the one I was looking for. Does anyone have more information on these items? Supposedly the mining ones only drop from specific types; I gathered 6 different types of flowers tonight with no luck though. Any information regarding the item would be appreciated. I'm worried I may have bugged something, because at one point early on I recall gathering something (but I don't recall if it was a flower or wood), and having a yellow item in the loot window. However, I have auto loot set to default so the window disappeared... but I did not receive the item. Furthermore, some error appeared on the screen that disappeared just as quickly. I saw a similar error when I got the wood one (it was the "inventory full" message, even though my inventory was not full), though I still got the item. So I don't know if I'm just unlucky or if I'm not looking in the right place... any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

lucky for you I had 3 such quest items drop for me in the past two days in my foraging.

1) the drop from golden Nettles plants and higher skill
2) This means you can get it from scarlet gorge or higher
3) Apparently Golden Nettles though have the highest drop rate.

I remember 2 nights ago when i got the exceptional mahagony sample i went to turn it in in meridian and somehow the quest for pure distillate became available from the master butcher, whether it was on purpose or a glitch i dunno.

So it's not just from Scarwood Reach? That would make things easier...

Also, I don't suppose you know what the actual quest item is called? I may break down and buy it if I don't get it soon... but obviously the recipe itself is BoP (while the quest item is Bind on Use, which makes it tradeable).

Quest item is called Pure Sap.

And yes, drops are based off of the item farmed rather than the zone, just like how cloth drops are based on the level of the mob rather than the zone you find them in.

Do you know what item it is most likely to drop from? Because I farmed several different types of flowers with no luck.

As I am not a forager, I will quote you Bohtauri's post from above (sans typo):

The higher-tier quest items that lead to things like Pure Distillate have an agonizingly low drop rate. I had something like 25 stacks of soulhide and 2 of ironhide before I finally got the item for the last leather recipe. Of course, it dropped a whole bunch right after that just to spite me, apparently. There was a patch in the intervening time, though, which may have upped the drop rate.

Ya, they increased the droprate with 1.2. Prior to that, I farmed 50+ stacks of soulhide to get it on my first rogue. I got it in an hour or so on my second rogue. The imbued leather item was still the worst, but all the others came quickly. I've thrown away more Cinerium Bar quest items since tha tpatch than I can remember.
