0 for 3 for me so far. How many pocket bosses did you get to assemble? :)
I've long ago run so short on space I can't loot most things like low PB patterns. I've likely left enough on corpses to put together enough patterns to choke the life out of your bank as well :wink:

:edit: you guys know the Hate Program only drops off the Sadistic Soul Dredge right

The lowest price that I've actually seen advertised on RK1 was 90m for the set of three. I got my set for much less than that, but it was piecemeal (I already had the Focus Funnelling Devices, and was able to get good deals on two spirits and the Love Spirit Training Program). The main cost is that huge chunk of change that was the Rancorous helper.

Oh, and I'd like to reiterate that Froobs can use them, but only if you are an Engi, Trader, or Fixer.

The bits fall off named imps, you say. Can you be more explicit where to find these please?

Focus-Funneling devices are sold for 1mil on player shops and they're quite plentiful. I got mine for 100k. :)
I believe those imps reside in Elysium area. They are scattered around the place and are often camped (read: place seems empty but whenever the mob spawns there appears some lv200+ ninja that kills it with one blow) and I think some SL maps (player made ones) show the locations.

The Imps that drop the Focus Funnelling Spirits are located in North & West Elysium, the ones that might drop the Love Program are in West & East Ely. The Soul Dredge that might once in 200 kills drop the Hate Program is in East & South Ely.

I'd buy the premade devices but paying even 20m is like a huge kick in the goods for froobs. I have the base parts for the device (i just need to find someone who would go thru heck and back to get me some programs)

I have been trying to gather all parts for a set of three devices. The base devices should be easily obtained from CoH or from friends/trading. Then the parts from SL. Since I currently have an active SL-account I logged my highest level character, an agent who has the garden keys and kills any boss at this level in a couple of seconds. I found Shere Map with locations of all the named mobs. I started rotating between 3-4 different camps to time the 20 minute spawns: named Imps, Hiathlins, and the two Dredges.

A couple of hundred Imps later I had three Focus Funneling Spirits. At that point I had also found two Spirit Training Program (love).

Now focusing on the two Sadistic Soul Dredge. Like others have reported, they seem to be the real issue. After a few long gaming sessions I've found nothing and I'm afraid that I might delete the item once it finally drops. If it drops. To ease the pain I'm also killing named Souls (for NCU-upgrades: Problem Seeking/Avoiding/Solving Device) as well as the named Heartland Predators (for Predator Armor).

Right now I'm counting 4 complete sets of Predator Armor and 32 Problem X Devices. After assembling 100+ Complete Blueprints I've stopped looting Patterns. For some reason I've also gathered a set of shade spirits/tattoos, 9 Die Kleine Nadel (QL63-143), a couple of Elysian Protector's Cuirass, and Novictum that I keep deleting...

I haven't seen any other players at the locations for Imps or Hiathlins. I've seen a couple of players farming Souls on the island near South of Elysium but noone camping the Sadistic Soul Dredge there. Maybe because he is often hard to target and sometimes invisible. The only mob that other players seem to camp during weekends is the Sadistic Soul Dredge in East of Elysium. Perhaps they are also struggling to find the last piece?

I'll post an update if/when I've completed this mess.

Alright, the Sadistic Soul Dredge in East of Elysium finally decided to drop a Spirit Training Program (hate). Finally! =D>
This running/camping mobs for hours is really painful and I'm glad I won't have to do it again - for this item.
Now returning to the real world, Rubi-Ka that is. :wink:
