    I need 2 things of you guys if you find this elusive kid Dane Bright (all info on him can be found in the link):
    First: if you find him in an area not listed in the wiki article please mention it(if you can include a screenshot it will be helpful)

    Second:a confirmation that he sells level 12 plans(screenshot is mandatory since some people says he sells it while a lot of people say they farmed him for hours & all they got was Level 10 & below "including myself when I found him a couple of days ago I kept checking him for 5 hours & couldn't get a single Level 12 from him"so we need a solid proof on that)

    I found him on torment 1 but he can be found on any difficulty(but only in adventure mode),but as you probably will be doing bounties & rifts while you wait for his inventory to reset so torment would be better(at least that's my opinion).

    Wirt the Peg-Legged boy. There was a famous PK/scammer who used that as his forum name, for obvious "please make me famous with your hate" reasons.
    http://www.diablowiki.net/Wirt

    You guys have noticed from the NPC dialogues that Squirt the Peddler in Act 2 is his little sister, right? I'm not sure the math of their ages makes a lot of sense, as Wirt was like 10 y/o 20 years before D3, but just play along.

    When does it say she's his sister? I know she mentions that her family comes from Tristram, but that's it.

    I have not heard of this either, was it from some dialogue that was only in the Beta?

    she isn't his sister,he was an orphan at time of Diablo 1 beside this girl is like 10 years old which means she was born 10 years after original diablo events & everyone that was still in old Tristram during events of D1&2 was slain & converted to monster except Adria,Cain & Guillian so there is no way she is related to him.It's just that her parents lived in tristram & probably left town when Leoric' madness began(before D1 events).
    NOW can we return to the original topic ,please..

    I have made it my mission to find this guy... maybe 25 runs in Northern Highlands so far with no luck. One thing I've noticed is that NH is a great place to farm goblins! I usually find one and quite often 2 or even 3.

    Good luck with that Zappa. I did think about it last night a bit, but not sure it is worth the time, at least for me. I am only missing one plan I want and according to the post, even if you find him he might or might not sell lvl12 plans.

    To echo something you have said, farming in Act1 in those spots can be quite good. The density, can be really good for white mobs.

    I have a hunch he doesn't sell any of the plans I would like to get, but I'm curious so I'm going to try. NH is a quick in/out area, and the density & champions/goblins keep it interesting (so far).

    yeah,that area is great,hope blizzard doesn't nerf it.in my worst runs I get a goblin & a champion pack with lot of whites .in my best runs I got 3 goblins,2 elites pack,a purple khazra guy & a cursed chest so it's not a bad place to farm.
    & regarding his spawn rate it's pretty random,I found him on my 3rd try then after that I have done 35 runs with no luck finding him again so far.some people says it took them up to 150 runs to find him while others find him once every 20-30 runs.so good luck & hope you can find him quickly.

    After seeing this thread I thought right, I'm going to farm for him. So last night and tonight I did. Eventually I got him, was very very pleased as you can imagine. Then I lost connection.

    Seriously, permission to laugh because I certainly *&%^$(£& did.

    I've done about 17 or so runs on Expert without any luck finding Dane Bright. I've found more than one treasure goblin/seeker per run though. I've now decided to speed things up and run on Normal for a while. It's a matter of principle now ... :)

    Just after you logged off last night Wolfy I found him again, literally 2 mins later. I'd have passed him on to you.

    Tried quite a number of times yesterday with no luck, probably at least 20-30 runs. I have been reading some things that he is capable of selling ALL plans... but he will have plans that you already know so it might take a while once you have him to get a lvl 12 plan that you want.
