I got lucky on the first kill while farming lizard skins. Went 1/1 but now after maybe 50 no more have dropped. I assume the drop rate on the King Truffles are very low.

I have farmed these plenty of times, and get maybe 3 truffles an hour average.
Yesterday and today, I have gotten 0 from about 200+ shrooms, it's never happened before. Its like they changed what they drop from or something. This sucks!

random always

zoning and reseting drop rates? It's all random like everything else in this game. You have good days and bad. People have all kinds of theories and superstitions b/c they spend too much time playing this game. I also say it's a joke how hard it is to get these truffles when everyone needs them for guild point item >.> I surely won't waste my time competing with other ppl in a small room just to get a lousy mushroom.
Tree or Nest?

I mainly just farm the mushrooms that are dropped, but I'd like the items from the Ellylon (SP?) NM if possible. Thing is, I've been farming in the Crawler's Nest with minimal competition. How different would things likely be in the Boyahda Tree if I started farming there instead? Do a lot of folks usually farm there?

Great for BST to Lv and farm Truffles at Lv 45-48.

Providing you can get to them. Every time I went there some high levels were always killing them for spawning the NM.

I thought I should share this that the ratio on truffles are a random drop ratio of 1 per 6 funguar. If you get 2 in a row you will not get another one until after you have killed 6+ funguars. After an hour though the drop rate starts to halve, which would explain why the other guy in a topic related to this item was getting such bad drop rates, he probably was farming right after another farmer gave up. I have not yet tested if this improves after an hour or if it continues to get worse until it is not worth farming or if zoning out resets the drop ratio. I will update this post when I do more tests.
