Just got the recipe for this. Will need a lot of rare items for it though.
It needs
1 wirt's bell
1 black mushroom
1 liquid rainbow
1 gibbering gemstone
1 leoric's shinbone.
50,000 gold

We know the mushroom can spawn in the cathedral. Let's try to make this thread a record of where to farm to find the other pieces.

Ok after a bit of perseverance, we have found the secret land. Its known as Whimsyshire and upon gaining entry you get a feat of strength along with a banner and sigil. I wont spoil too much but here is reason enough to complete that staff. You can also run the level as many times as you want as far as I can tell.

Whimsyshire:

Feat of Strength:

Hunters:

Phantar
Sethion

The items needed:
Black Mushroom spawns in cathedral level 1 ACT1

Shinbone is located randomly in the fireplace in leorics manor ACT1.

Liquid Rainbow is located from the Mysterious Cave in the Mysterious chest in the Oasis in ACT2. You will know its the right place when you save the old man and he opens it up. the spawn point is always the same for the event.

Wirts Bell is sold from one of the merchants in the city on ACT2

Gibbering Gemstone drops from Chiltara in the caverns of frost ACT3(The area where you destroy the ballistae) if you get Ice caverns exit out and start a new game. The mob itself is random.

The plans drops randomly from Izual on ACT4.

Opening the portal I will leave that up to you.

What is considered to be Cathedral level one?  I go straight from Leoric's passage to Cathedral level two...

Just farmed up everything you need for this; took me ~5.5 hours. The plans were the hardest for me; I killed Izual at least 20 times before they finally dropped. Waiting for some friends to be available to actually go do the level.

Izual is the angel boss in Act4? Well played Blizz. Well played.

Think he means that Izzy was the angel boss in act IV in D2 as well.

Also, plans dropped first time for me.  ;)

Upgrading the staff from Normal to Nightmare took another 200k, but some friends chipped in and we got that done. Nightmare ponies are brutal!

If anyone wants me to let them into either the Normal or NM pony level, just let me know in game (my battletag is in the thread).

I got mine today and the legendary sword Spectrum - not very good but fantastic graphics. Do you always get one in there, or is it a much higher chance of dropping or something?

I ran the zone twice on normal and 3 times on Nightmare, all with full parties of 4. Not once did we get a legendary sword.

I got the liquid rainbow through playing normally, and the plans didn't take long to get either. (30 minutes maybe?). The hard bit was the Caverns of Frost which took 3 hours easily.

Caverns of Frost was kind of a pain for me too; the first ~10 times I entered the zone I got Icefall Caves instead, to the point where I was wondering if I was in the right place. Once the right cave actually spawned, I got it in 2 runs.

Haven't bought the bell, but since i can buy it I don't care. I can not for the life of me get the fucking alchemist to spawn in the Dalghur Oasis so the Liquid Rainbow evades me. Goddamn rainbows. Have everything else already.

Managed to spawn the alchemist 4 times - yet to get Liquid Fucking Rainbow. Those 4 runs have taken at least 150 logout cycles.

Take how many hours the game has been out for and then maybe subtract sleeping time.

I didn't notice the question. Efficiency means selective reading I guess. Looks like 19 hours on one toon and 9 on the other. I have no clue if time in the menus is counted, but I imagine it is based on whatever character is selected. I leave the game open a lot. That said, I spent about 7 hours total on my Shadow Hunter trying to get the fucking Staff of Herding. Almost all this last weekend.

Yeah everything else wasn't too bad to farm.  Took me three hours for frost caves and it sounds like I was one of the luckier ones.
