    Interesting! I'm trying to imagine how much digging or parsing it took to correlate that?

    This alligator skin, it only drops from one individual alligator in the whole zone, the fat alligator. I don't like to question the dev's on every change, that's tiring for me and for the team. I'm assuming there are AK logs to back this up? Or was this a balance change? Thanks for your time.

    AK log doesn't show much. only show that a player asked if it drops in innothule. However in comments in zam suggested how rare it is. Also there was a dev quotes from an adminstrator on ZAM: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=3241

    Ok thank you for the explanation and doing the research Robregen. If I come across anything different in my research I will open a bug report. Thanks again!

    It looks to me like it's correct to move the skin from the gators in the Feerrott, but bull alligators in Innothule should drop it as well.

    Innothule was revamped in 2007, which may be the reason only the fat alligator drops the skin now on the progression servers.

    There are four commenters on the Alla's page that mention looting the skin from a bull alligator in our era, though, and Mechaike mentions it dropping from bull gators on the Tem boards. It does seem to have been rare; going by Allas comments, I'd guess 2-3%.

    The alligator skin has always been quite rare here unless there is a bugged mob that always drops skins that I'm not aware of. In my experience, it's a significant time investment to get one to drop.

    yeah seen those comments as well. Since you mentioned it from a Tem Board, I can include the bull alligator for next server patch.

    Looks like the right move Rob. http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/npc.html?id=1732&p=3#comments

    3 pages of comments on the bull alligator page. most from AK era describing the bull and fat dropping the skin. Several comments describing the drop rate as well.

    Freeport sewer alligator shouldn't drop it?
