Hey everyone! If anybody ever wants to hit up Craglorn for some mat farming (especially Nirncrux) Cap N Saveho and myself are normally always down to run around with you! We also need two solid vet levels to join us so we can finish the upper Craglorn quest line to get a Nirnhoned item. Let us know!

No problem man, if we have a couple people it's not a bad area honestly. As long as you don't treat it like a low level zone and run past all the mobs it's easy to quickly make your way around that area. Cap N Saveho and I are trying to finish the lower Crag quest line and then the upper crag quest line to get our piece of Nirnhoned equipment out of the deal. Every player is guaranteed one random Nirnhoned item at the end of the upper Crag quest line Cap and I want that item badly lol.

Just to throw out my experience farming Nirncrux (starting last night), I've gathered maybe 500-600 nodes at this point, have found 2 fortified nirncrux and a potent nirncrux.
Looking through the theorycrafting online, the droprate seems to be around 1/100 for fortified and 1/400 for potent nirncrux.
One thing to keep in mind guys, is that they are still (even after the patch) findable in Upper Craglorn. The patch made them findable in survey dropped nodes (the writ rewards) across Craglorn, but not in normal nodes.
Deleted a few posts. I wasn't aware of what "survey" writs were, as I've yet to receive one.
So to fully clarify to anyone, REGULAR nodes in upper craglorn are the only nodes in which you can obtain nirncrux.
RICH nodes are nodes that appear only if you are doing specific crafting writs that are called "surveys". Any rich node in craglorn will now drop nirncrux as well. So only farm upper craglorn for these.
