i posted this on reddit before I'll just post it here as it might help new players

Just want to share my experience in farming for SB cuffs

First i made about 50 Gorgon queens runs and got zero SB cuffs (epic difficulty).

Then i went for 100 runs and again zero drops.

Then i tried this:

1. portal to knossos

2. run all the way to the labyrinth until you get to the last rebirth fountain before the minotaur and telkine (ignore all other monsters)

3. check the monsters just before that fountain:

a.) if gorgons and automatoi, your good to go

b.) if spiders and automatoi, exit to desktop and launch the game again until you get gorgons and automatoi

4. kill only the yellow gorgons and hero gorgons

5. quit and rinse repeat (do not exit to desktop)

this is the area you want:

after about 5 runs i found 1 in epic (+2 to all skills, 9% elemental resist), and 32 runs, 1 in legendary (+3 to all skills, 9% elemental resist).

1 run only takes seconds

hope this helps some of you

Just because you didn't find SC from the gorgon queens that doesn't mean they are hard to find there. I've been playing the game for years and always farm my SC from the queens. On my last character it took me around 20 runs to find them in normal and epic diffculties and on legendary i got them on the 5th try so... your topic can be kinda missleading to new players. I think on legendary difficulty the queens are the easiest way to find them, because they drop so many green items... not entirely sure but still.

By the way, the green gorgons can also drop SC, not just the orange ones.

this is a guide to help new players and i would apologize if some of them got confused

your right that the queens also drop them because back from TQIT that's also where i used to farm them.. that's why i made hundreds of runs in that area.. but in this AE i just can't seem to find one there

the rebirth fountain is much nearer on this area area than the queens so it's much faster to make runs

i like the game and i want more people to play it.. whenever I'm online i even give random people some extra purple items.. cheers there's also a veteran here.. hope we can help new players
come to think of it i have an extra of this item. if any new player wants one just reply to this post :)

+3 to all skills
9% elemental resist
some + to energy

Maybe you're just unlucky with the queens. As far as i know, the drop rates are the same in the AE and that goes for monster infrequents aswell.

On paper, the labyrinth is a better place, you're right. Still if you're unlucky, you may not see the cuffs for hundreds of runs. Boss and hero enemies have better chances to drop monster infrequents but with the queens, the only problem like you said, is the longer run. Still it's not hard to get them there... either that or i'm just too lucky because i never had a hard time farming the cuffs from the queens. I like to farm the queens because you can get legendary items from them on later diffculties.

If I remember correctly the drop rate from the queens is slightly higher than the one from the hero gorgons (redish and green), but the run through the labyrinth is shorter. So it really comes down to preference more than anything.

man i thought someone was gonna ask for my extra SB cuffs haha
I farmed all my SBCs in the MinoLab. I've had a few drop in the Pythian Caves, but had no luck farming them there.

botebote77, that's a well known way to farm for SBCs.
Hey,

Good tip about finding the Stonebinder's Cuffs in the labyrinth.

I tried farming the Gorgon queens a few dozen times, without any luck.

Then I tried farming in the labyrinth like you said, and in less than half a dozen tries I found the cuffs!

There are also some nice treasure chests in the area to check during the run.

Thanks!
