    In my best exp. I averaged 2 drops per ransack on elite. Keeping one and passing the other to a group member that didn't get one to drop for them on the way to ransack. The absolute best I've seen was we got 4 grand total on a ransack run on elite. I tried a few times on other difficuclties, but didn't get any drops. All mine were on elite.

    Make sure to have someone get the extra chest up front when speaking to the prisoner. Might help increase drop rate on elite (2 chests instead of one?), but didn't pay attention per sey, but made sure we got the extra chest each run anyways.

    Tips and Misc

    At the start of the quest, use bluff, diplomacy or intimidate (DCs: ?56 ?62 ??*68) with the prisoner for an additional chest at the end.
    Though the streets of Wheloon appear at first to be a bit of a maze, they're really rather linear.
    At the end of the quest, you can read the Mysterious Note on the table during or after Teralyn's fight.

    If you're on Sarlona I don't mind running with you till one drops. I can pass mine to you if I get one. Right now I only have 2 toons at L18 that can run it.

    Between myself and another player that has run with me, we've ransacked the chest 9 times with only one stone to show for it. In addition I've only seen one cloak and none of the armor. Drop rates are very, very low or I've got wretched luck. You're not alone in having trouble farming the stone.

    The good news is that it's a 4 minute or less zerg on a capped toon that can cast invisibility on itself so it's at least fast.

    We were only after the stones, but I don't recall any other notable loot dropping but the stones. I did find few shortcuts in the town to bypass the bear traps, etc and make it go faster.

    Also, out of habit I was killing all the baddies and smashing all the breakables and it still seemed like the runs went fast. My favorite was at the guard when the 3 waves of shadow spawn come in and I was kiting the shadow mobs between 2 blade barriers that were super close and not overlapping. This seemed to make it go fast after the shrine b4 the end fight. Basically my secret weapon was BB and jump
