Are meteor showers more frequent now?

A couple of months ago I was complaining about no geting a single meteor shower for ~2 years. One day I saw one… and another… and another. 3 in 1,5 hours!

Now on my new character (less than 2 months old) I got several meteors. Not regularly still, but more frequently, roughly every 3 days. And here comes the main part: the first one triggers 5-6 of them!!
LITERALLY I got meteor showers every 10-15 minutes after the first one.
I barely find 4-5 nodes at the Stargazer’s crest and Outcas camp region, I hear another series of BOOMs from the other part of the mountain range. I run, find some of them, collect them, amd BOOM, at the Ymir statues and the forest below them there are a ton of nodes. I fight my way through direwolves, (now) normal mammoths and sabertooths, smack a couple of nodes, aaand you’ve guessed it: another BOOOOOM.

That is crazy. I now hav 4 large chests full of star metal bars in a matter of 3-4 days. Does anybody else experience this?

Sad story: my loyal friend Fenrir, who has 4600 HP, 800 armor (for a pet!!!) and 48 STR. died because 1 direwolf and an elite sabertooth grinded him down VERY quickly. (not to mention he carried 8K of star metal ore, 25 gas and 25 demon fire orbs). I had him from the beginning, he was my ONLY companion.

They’re real beast, two-shotting anyone :disappointed_relieved:

back on exiled lands I had base in the crevice, and meteors were pretty frequent (they dropped every hour or couple), definitely not as frequent as you describe, but getting star metal wasn’t hard I was swimming in bars

Are you maybe playing in a server now?

With maxed out Vitality AND heavy armor at half health the… I don’t know how to call it, but the leap with two front legs smacking you down (:rofl:) was a oneshot to me sadly. Thankfully I did not forget to place my bedroll down in the near this time.
I don’t mind if they are this strong, since @tobi04 I play on single player and I need a challenging environment.

@drachenfeles my base is on the Riversend, so technically right next to the meteor-zone so I spend most of my time around there. So that’s what triggers the meteor shower. But this many times? I don’t need this amount of star metal AGAIN, now that I crafted all of my stuff and repairing does no cost that much especially with legendary repair kits in hand.

Ok that kind of answers my question. It’s obviously gonna be more than once in 2 years now that the area is constantly loaded but I don’t know why it’s every 15 minutes

that may be the answer to your constant meteor shower

Meteor season? :rofl:

Like I said on my previous character I only had 3 in 2 years and I had a base near the Frost temple obelisk.
So maybe I have a VERY strange RNG right now.
With my new character it is more frequent, but not daily. But if one occurs it triggers a complete mayhem.

I honestly don’t know. No changes mentioned, I have no contact with dev. members to confirm that they changed something, NOTHING.
Just guessing, and blaming RNG. :upside_down_face:

frost temple is not trigger location, that’s why you haven’t seen any

Near the obelisk: on the frozen slopes. I just didn’t know the are name, and it is a trigger location, and a meteor zone, because… half of my base was destroyed by a meteorite.

afaik trigger zone is mounds / south snow area, but they fall allover the place, but I may be wrong

Nah, I can back @rolee9309 on this one (anecdotally at least) - I’ve definitely spent a bunch of time up on the frozen slopes without coming via the southern part and still triggered meteors (in singleplayer). Had the exact same experience - it just looks like such a tempting place to build, lol. (And I never saw meteors there before I built a large building… maybe that’s the trigger :wink: )

oh yeah, I remember people complaining about meteors always hitting their maprooms

Right - I mean, it just seems like such a natural place to put one…

Probably the buildings are magnetic because of the reinforcements and maproom magic-stuff!!
Hah hah… my base… :sob:
