    dane bright merchantDane Bright. I hadn’t heard that name until clanmate Bluedragon made a thread in the community forum asking for information on him. He’d created a page in Diablo Wiki with what he had gathered so far. He wondered if we knew more.

    DiabloWikiDane Bright is a rare merchant who sells legendary and set crafting plans. He sells one at a time and his inventory of one plan refreshes every 15 minutes (he sells dyes too). You have to leave the area for his inventory to refresh. The easiest place to farm for him is in the DiabloWikiNorthern Highlands as it’s the smallest area he has been spotted in and also you more often than not come across two DiabloWikiTreasure Goblins. He’s also been spotted in the Dahlgur Oasis, Desolate Sands and Westmarch Commons which are considerably more work to farm.

    As soon as I saw Bluedragon’s thread of course I had to start my search.  I farmed him all night, eventually finding him. I very quickly lost connection which I chose to take as a sign it was time for bed instead of having the mother of all hissy fits. Okay, maybe I did have a hissy fit first but have wiped it from my memory. The next night, sucker for punishment, I farmed again (maybe 25 times) and found him in the top left corner of the Northern Highlands. I managed to buy quite a few plans before losing connection.

    I was specifically after the level 12 plans rumoured to appear but had no luck. The next night I had another go and only had to sweep the area seven times for him to appear. I got a good few plans, using the time in between Dane refreshing his inventory to do bounties and rifts. This is why it’s best not to farm for him in Normal difficulty as you’ll end up having to kill time in between waiting for a new plan to appear.

    I did this all on Torment 1 but so far he hasn’t offered me any plans above level 10. I’ve listed below all the different ones I bought. Sometimes he offered plans I already had but as the plans are not account bound, and I had to buy them anyway in order for him to refresh his inventory, I gave them away to clanmates.

    What’s your experience with finding Dane? Can you confirm the other locations listed or have you found him somewhere else entirely. Also, the level 12 plans that he’s rumoured to sell but have eluded me, did he sell any to you?
