Coruscating Mine

In the realms of the Sidhe and faeries, there are two major factions that continuously play against each other. These are the Seelie and the Unseelie Courts. The members of the Seelie Court are generally benign in nature and do not actively seek to harm humans living in their territory. In some cases, they may even befriend humans such as with the Elves and Lurikeen. The Unseelie Court, however, is made up of all the dark and evil faeries, which include goblins, pookas, siabra, and other creatures of magic that may seek to cause harm to humankind. Because common metals, particularly iron, is dangerous to all magical creatures, both the Seelie and Unseelie Courts forge their weapons, armor and artifacts out of magical metals and gems. One of the most precious metals to both groups is true silver, sometimes called Mithril by others. True silver is a light, strong, magical silver that has been coveted by the Sidhe for centuries. One of the ancient kings of Hibernia, Nuada of the Silver Hand, had a hand forged of true silver after an opposing Fomorian king had severed his. The silver hand functioned as any normal hand and allowed him to renew his kingship (since no one of his kind was allowed to rule so long as they had a blemish on their body). The Coruscating Mine, located in the heart of the Silvermine Mountains, is completely controlled by the Unseelie Court. Bounty hunters and other members of this evil faction often raid human and firbolg towns and villages to supply a steady workforce. The humans and firbolgs they capture are forced to labor in the mines against their will; some of them are bound by geas, some by magical collars, and others by mind manipulation. Because there is a mild line of respect and code of behavior between the two factions, the Unseelie do not capture members of the Seelie Court. There are rumors that deep within the mines the Silver Hand of Nuada is protected by powerful guardians loyal to the Unseelie, which causes no little amount of unrest among those of the Seelie Court.

The various foes are on a sliding scale with regards to drops:

Rats, Gemclickers, and Worms have specific item drops (fangs, claws, carapace). Uncommon drops.

Silviers, skeletons, trammers drop worn (80%)armour (80AF and cloth equivalent) and flawed asterite weapons and shields.

Gemgetters, sentries, drudgers drop balanced asterite weapons and shields and (89%) armours (80AF and cloth equivalent). Uncommon drops.

Once you're in the Pit, things are a wee bit less clear, but anything killed down there will drop something nice. Weapons range from 14 to 16, and armour ranges from 88 to 94 AF for leather to scale, and the cloth equivalents. Rare to horribly, painfully rare with regard to drops.

Noticed one error in this. Phantom Miners do not drop any items. Or at least I've never seen, or heard, of anything dropping from them.

Phantom Miners do drop items, they just seem less farmed, probably due to their ability to parry! I have seen the awesome Shadow Crystal Sword drop from one of them!

i power level at phantom miners with my light mentalist..prolly the best spot for someone specced in light. They drop all sorts of truesilver coruscating weapons, armor, cloaks of silver hand as well as bracers of the silver hand. A decent spot in general for mages.
