This item seems to appear in the first new cavern you visit after the item was introduced. There is probably some kind of limit on the number of times it drops, i.e. once per ascension, but more spading is required. --Aerick Ardeo 04:11, 16 November 2012 (CET)

This item sometimes yields an extra item drop when fighting the smut orcs:

An extra fastener rattles across the floor and sticks to your loadstone. Weird. It's not made of Meat -- it must've been attracted to the double-entendre.

--Ninamo 05:58, 16 November 2012 (CET) -- Blitsnik- I adventured there about 24 adv, got the extra fastener 13 times. at first it seemed like it dropped only for certain orcs, i went 4 screwers in a row without getting the extra one but then i got one. More than 50% chance of it though. 20 November 2012

Some more spading

The item drops only in that first cavern. maybe its once per ascension? I went through about 5 caverns. It dropped on both accounts past the 3rd row, just like the ores you collect for the quest. Someone who doesnt have it yet should check the Knob shaft and see if it drops there. - 11/19 10:23 Blitsnik ---had a friend check it. doesn't drop in the first cavern in the Knob Shaft. -19 November 2012 10:46 Blitsnik

Two more data points: it replaced a diamond in my mine, and a chrome in someone else's. Does it always replace an ore? Can it replace the ore you need for the quest? --Clopedion 05:19, 20 November 2012 (CET)

I would be the someone else. I required lino (I'm pretty sure), and it replaced the chrome, so no correlation it seems there. — Cool12309 (talk) 05:22, 20 November 2012 (CET)

--Blitsnik- i think it just takes a random place in the back three rows of the first mine cavern you go to after the Loadstone was "created" 20 November 2012

Another data point: The Loadstone replaced a Diamond for me, in the 3rd row from the bottom. Straha 22:12, 22 November 2012 (CET)

It's definitely replacing; 3 chrome ores in an entire cavern, and they were discontiguous across the loadstone. And yes, that's the ore for the quest this time. Sigh. --Clovis Sangrail (talk) 15:03, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Fastener drop rates, pl0x?

17/31 for me. It looks like 50%.
