How to farm Forlorn Necklace
The best spot to farm these items is at the top of the Lost Shrine in Act II. You will want to go all the way to the roof and create a small loop where you kill the armored mask-wearing caster shade by a blue block, then kill the armored mask-wearing caster shade that spawns at a dead end on the level above. You will then jump down the 2 ladders to the save point, go through the door, and come out. The shades have reset. Take the second ladder on the right (when facing away from the door) to return to the blue block and restart the loop. There is technically a third "shaman" shade on the other side of the shrine however it is faster to ignore this one and just focus on the two mentioned above then reset with the door.
Expect to farm for about one hour with 30% drop rate Words to obtain enough Forlorn Necklace and Broken Earrings to complete your upgrades.
Forlorn Necklace Notes & Trivia
- If farming Forlorn Necklace on hard mode within the lost shrine, due to the ladders and different height elevations, you can almost completely ignore the sword wielding shades and focus entirely on the shamans to drastically speed up the process.
