This dropped from a random mechanical mob for me when I was on the A Historical Mess quest which is the follow up quest from Clues Abound. Clues Abound only happens when the explorer's league visits Mechagon. It awarded 45 rep with Rustbolt. In addition, I was able to share this quest with my party so they could all turn it in even though only one of us got the drop.
This quest can be shared! If you play on the EU feel free to message me, I have an alt with the pirate hat on me.
EDIT: Now that the expedition league is no longer in town I can no longer share the quest.
It dropped from congealed oils while I was on the "Time for Heroics!" Quest. Took a 4 man group 30 minutes of farming to acquire it.
Picked it up from a Congealed Oil while on the quests Deck 'Em and Time for Heroics after taking the Hearthstone Card. It did take killing about 70 oils, so I was doubting the accuracy of the information. But it does definitely drop, it can just take a while.
Got it while on the 'growing mystery' follow up quest. Took about 20 oils.
be on any of the follow up quests from
for this to drop.
You can only choose one:
How to complete
random mechagon daily quest
accept the next quest
0.6% drop rate (i got it after 7 trys)
Last time the
quest was up, I followed the hints presented in this comments section (and the comments over under the
quest). I went and found the Hearthstone card, I completed the Clues Abound quest and picked up the
. I then farmed the
dropped according to plan after around 20-30 kills. Encouraged by the comments here, I then went and rescued
, picking up the
and then went and farmed
for FOUR (4) hours (while binging Stranger Things 3) without the
dropping - I checked again and again that people have commented that both can drop for you on the same day and in the described fashion. At last I gave up and went to bed.
Today the quest is up again. Again, I went and found the Hearthstone card, I completed the Clues Abound quest and picked up the
. Again, I rescued
, picking up the
and settled in for some farming.
dropped on the first
... I shouted out "Are you f***ing kidding me?" and my family came rushing to check on me. Then I went here and wrote this and now I will go get my
achievement. Well deserved!
man, farming this item made me so frustrating, just now realised that i even forgot to turn in the emissary quest :(
i now got several hours farm time with both warmode on and off while being on the quest or a follow up of that chain. Seems like im getting unlucky, however id like to believe the item bugs and doesnt drop right now just to feel better T.T
If you looted the Night elf Ring it looks like you can't loot the Hat on the same day. To do both steps on the same day you can invite a friend who didn't drop the ring so he can drop the hat and then share the quest to you.
For anyone also working on the meta achieve in Shadowlands, it seems once you get either the
Night Elf Ring
or this Old Pirate Hat for
Pirates? I Hate Those Guys!
, the one you didn't get has a significantly lower drop chance or it just won't drop at all.
The last time
was up, I got the Night Elf Ring first, in just a few kills, and then spent hours killing hundreds of
for the Old Pirate Hat but it never dropped. I decided to give up and just wait for the next time Clues Abound comes around. Today the daily was up again and I finished Clues Abound, started
A Growing Mystery
and got the Old Pirate Hat in about 7 kills.
So if you're finding yourself endlessly grinding for one of these items after getting the other easily, I'd advise you move on with your day and wait for Clues Abound to be up again.
