As I've worked champ spawns for the new drops, I've noticed a big discretion in the likelihood that particular templates will receive drops.

I've done few champs with my tamer, including Oaks (duh), Valor, Humility, and Tok. I've yet to receive a drop. However, I've played Oaks a few times with my weaver/archer and have gotten 4 sots. My tamer has done Oaks far more times than my archer, yet I only seem to get drops with my archer. I assume this has something to do with damage output.

I'm wondering, is there an ideal template for working these drops?

If you're only looking for SoT's, then the ideal template is the one that can kill the most creatures. I've received an equal number of SoT's relative to time played on all of my characters I use for spawning (necro-tamer, archer, weaving mage, weaving-tamer). The best, I suppose, would be a necro-mage since you could simply follow the tamer and "steal" all of the kills (by the way, I encorage this behavior, even if I'm the tamer. Working the spawn faster is more important than getting all the kills, and when people do that to me, I'm usually in trouble anyway) with wither.

For replicas, I haven't found or heard of any method which will get you more replicas at the end of a spawn assuming you've worked at least part of the spawn itself.

I heartily recommend "cooperative killing" (better than kill stealing!) with a necro-mage. Necro-mage + Tamer is enough to crush almost any champ spawn level. The Tamer is needed to finish the boss, since the necro-mage can't kill him/her on his own.

How crowded has the Ilsh Oaks spawn been since the new content was released?

On Cats, the Ilsh Oaks spawn is typically so crowded that you can't find the no-karma losing opponents to kill (shadow wisp, wisp, centaur) unless you're lucky enough to have one spawn on you. It isn't uncommon to have 20 people there in a spawn outside of prime time.

But the serpentine dragons are easy to find since 15 of those 20 people won't kill them, but instead waits out the last level of the spawn.

Because of that, I've taken to doing the Tokuno spawn most of my play time.

Best tempate for Sleeping Dragon? Spellweaving archer or weaving mage with an archer along for the ride. I think ninja archer may do well too, but I don't have one to test.

Darnit - that means no more luring Paragon Ancient Wyrms and Para Greater Dragons to the spawn...

On Atlantic, I've rarely seen Oaks with fewer than 15 people - sometimes many more - since the publish.

I like the Tok champ. I want the oak leaf shroud and sash! :-D

Yes, but I'm lazy...I like it when the Paragons could spawn Oaks for me.

Guess those days are over. *dramatic sigh*
