Where do recipes drop in Diablo 3?

I am having a hard enough time playing Inferno in Diablo 3.

The only reason I am playing through and through is to find the Jeweler's design. I am getting tired of it and I'd like to know if any of you guys know what's the dropping rate and if they don't start dropping before Act/area X?

    @fbueckert Technically, they are strictly different questions. The linked question is asking for blacksmithing plans while this one is asking for jeweller designs... – Alderath Jun 27 '12 at 22:16
  • The qustion asks, "Where do recipes drop?" Jeweler plans are included in that, even if they aren't explicitly mentioned. – Frank Jun 27 '12 at 22:21

    this question is much more specific - Personally, I'd like to know the answer to this specific qn. – fcrick Jun 28 '12 at 4:01
  • @fcrick This question is not really much more specific, it just uses the word "Jeweler". There are only two kinds of recipes, I don't really see the need to have a recipes question, and then a more specific jeweler recipe question - especially given that the answers will be the same. – EBongo Aug 18 '12 at 2:47
  • @Anzurio Don't take the discussion the wrong way, it's a good question - I just feel it's already been asked. – EBongo Aug 18 '12 at 2:48

Earliest i got past 1.0.3 was act 2 inferno, it may be luck but friends also got them starting from this act.


Rumor has it that the worm cave (random spawn in desolate sands act 2) drops recipes. One dropped for me there, when I heard someone mention it, sorta clicked. Unverified, but a lead.

Also had one drop in the Spirit zone (think thats what its called) the third portal in the arkives at the end of act 2.
