usually each newby quest has one ultra ultra rare drop for one of the pieces. I remember 3+ years ago it took me about 14 hours to finally get a pristine forest drake scale to drop in GFay for hya =)
Don't get me started on Pristine Forest Drakeling Scales. It took me well over 200 kills to get one, and that was AFTER I started counting. I bet it was at least 250. Then I started another character that needed one. Kill me now... Since that time it's been a hobby of mine when bored to step into GFay and kill every one I can find. I won't tell you how many I've managed to get since I last really needed one in 2004...
They are the Holy Grails of EQ for me.
