So Online private means shared with other players? If so then, it is possible the other spawn has been trolled, on purpose or accidentally, out of the area. It will take a reset of server to get it home. Which spawn is there…the fighter/archer or the artisans one. I have not seen a T4 fighter/archer there, but have recently gotten an armorer named there. I am on official PVP PS4.
If it is single player, do you have mods. if so, one of the mods may be affecting the spawn table. Or
lastly, if something is built too close, the spawn will not come back until the structure is gone.
On the official PvE server I’ve been to that location two or three times since the latest patch and your report … I’ve seen two npc each time - one a fighter class and the other a random crafter or dancer … not named but I put that down to random spawn chance as I’ve never seen a named there myself.
Sometimes one of the thralls wanders off the stone platform where the campfire is … once I found the fighter all the way down the path near where a panther spawns …
There’s an exile camp near the Dregs that’s surrounded by ~6 or 7 crocs… (really Funcom? is that really needed, poor Exiles! ) I once found a named thrall wandering there, but I made the mistake of getting too close so all the crocs AI activated and instantly obliterated them before I could reach to help
Morale of that is never get too close to that camp without your bow and first killing all the crocs before they activate, just in case there’s a named thrall spawned in there!
You said that you haven’t changed your structures … but what about anyone else building around the same area that might have affected the spawn point of one of the NPCs.
A clan on our server once had a substantial building up there that had a pathway along the outside of the cliffs from where the panthers spawned to the rock platform with the bonfire where the two npc spawn … the crafter continued to spawn but the fighter did not (neither did the panthers).
Once that clan stopped playing and their base disappeared both the fighter and panthers respawned again.
Thanks for the input @Kwalya. But, no, I own that whole area. I’m beginning to think it has to do with a mod. I have captured a lot of T4’s there and give them away to players who stumble into our server.
I know removing mods from a server to see which it is can be detrimental to players buildings
if it’s important to discover what mod it is are you able to start a single player game with the same mod set up and methodically test which one or combinations of mods is causing the problem?
