[Guide] Divination cards: drop locations and drop rate

Hi there! It has been a while since Path of Exile Awakening hit live and I got to play non-beta. One of the most fun and rewarding things that have been added were Divination cards. I decided to compile a table with Divination cards drop locations, approximate drop rate which is based on rarity tiers starting with the most common: Very Common – Common – Semi-Common – Uncommon – Semi-Rare – Rare – Very Rare – Extremely Rare. Tiers are based loosely on availability of the cards on poe.trade, how expensive or rare the item in the cards is and my personal experience while farming them. Also, if I have missed something, feel free to leave comments and I will add the missing info, peace!
