Hi, I just want to confirm what mobs drop precursors?

Is it just mobs from cursed shore, of does this include straits, orr etc or any mob in the world has a chance for it?

Many thanks

Nothing drops precursors. You get precursors from throwing in weapons of the same type into the mystic forge with the hopes of receiving  a precursor.

Level 80 exotics have the highest chance of giving one. Magic find does not affect it.

If you want the precursor to twilight throw in x4 exotic level 80 greatswords until you manage to get it

I got a precursor droped by a purple boss named Kudu, the end boss of a Crucible of Eternity story mode run . The precursor droped was Venom , the one used to craft Kraitkin, Legendary Trident . my magic find value was 45% and I realize how lucky of a drop that was. The precursor itself is not the big deal here since its not that valuable in the trading post and I for one have no interest in crafting Kraitkin , but the fact that it droped from Kudu takes me to believe that a - It was a bug ,  or  b - maybe some special purple bosses like Kudu, leader of the inquest may have a slim slim chance of droping exotics .

Take this information as you will , I had enough problems with guildies and map chat conversations in Lion's Arch calling me a liar trying to convince people that it was a drop. It's incredible how adamant people can be on theyr opinions on a game so recently released and with still so much to find out .

There have been lots of reports and even Anet confirmed that mobs can drop precursors - any random mob in high level areas.
