I would like to craft up some cleansing runes so I can carve my way through the Emprise du Lion. This requires corpse hearts, which apparently drop from possessed corpses. However, after murdering close to fifty corpse archers woken from the ponds of the Fallow Mire, I have yet to find a single heart.

Are corpse hearts really so rare, and I should just keep "fishing" in the Fallow Mire? Or do I need to find a different... kind... of corpse? Where can I obtain corpse hearts?

Preference will be given to answers that (a) don't depend on certain missions not being completed eg. Still Waters in Crestwood and (b) don't require DLC, since I'm on the XBox 360.

You can buy them from the Winter Palace Merchant

He has an infinite amount of them, so go wild

It's a rare drop from Corpse Archers, it's a better idea to just buy them instead of trying to get one to drop.

  • Alas this is part of some DLC unavailable on Xbox 360.

  • @detly Yeah, aside from trying from the corpse archers, this is the only other place you can get them.

  • Do you know if the corpse archers in the Fallow Mire actually do drop them (ie. are they special in that area to prevent farming)? Because the drop rate would have to be in the 1-2% range if it's not zero.

  • All I can tell you is that according to the wiki, corpse archers do drop them.

They drop much more commonly from corpses in the western ramparts of the exalted plains. I got three with five minutes.
