Jhebbal Sag Archpriests have 20%+ Spawnrate at 'The Den'!


#1

Game mode: [Online official]
Type of issue: [Bug]
Server type: [PvP]
Region: [Jhebbal Sag]


[T3 and T4 Jhebbal Sag Archpriests spawn at an extremly high rate.]


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Walk to ‘The Den’.
  2. Find an Archpriest.
  3. Well done!
  4. Destroy all bases on the entire server.

#2

Confirming this for my official PvP server. During 7 runs I already got two arch priests.

On the other hand I have difficulties to find even one named carpenter. :weary:


#3

Same on officail pve-c please fix.


#4

I have knocked them out and thrown them into a 2x2 sandstone house close to the spawn in order to prevent everyone - including myself - from abusing this bug :3 I hope they gonna stay there until server restart :o


#5

Nice trying but they will respawn after unconsciousness timeout, which is 10 minutes on officals?


#6

Can confirm, on my server (private RP-PvP Solitude), I have found 2 High Priests, an Archpriest, and 2x Parin of the Blood Moon (named Arch) from about 3 hours’ worth of camping. It’s ridiculous.


#7

Actually, make that about 5 High Priests. Forgot I killed a few since they’re so numerous lol.


#8

Funny how this happened after Funcom removed the guaranteed T4s from the volcano. GG.


#9

kockout thingie seems to work so far :3


#10

thank god they did it…

however, spawn rate that high should not happen neither. that spawn rate needs fixing.


#11

I went over the Den several times, didn’t any priest at all. So where are they spawn?
I only got dancers there.


#12

This game, lol, it’s not dull.


#13

Here are the official numbers for the Archpriests, via the data table in the dev kit:

Low = 100
Mid = 65
High = 20
Legendary = 15

100 + 65 + 20 + 15 = 200

15/200 chance to spawn, or .075, or 7.5%


#14

Finally there was a priest lol, and it was a named one.


#15

Those are some pretty outrageous numbers, compared to almost any other named spawn (ignoring the Volcano which is either fixed or bugged now, depending on what one thinks is “right”).

Assuming the spawn point guarantees a priest of some kind (correct me if I’m wrong, I haven’t checked), and going by the standard 15-minute respawn rate, it’d take roughly 3 hours on average to get a named priest.


#16

Depends on the spawn. There are named Thralls with lower percentages. Grr Legbiter being an example (a much, much lower percentage). In the priest case, I think priest doesn’t share it’s spawn with anyone else, based on the few reports I’ve seen so far. I’ll eventually do a full scout for my tier 4 thrall mods, then I shall know all (insert evil laugh here).


#17

So Grr Legbiter is hard to find? I found him last night (official ps4 pve server) in a random exile camp on the border between Noob River and the jungle. All I wanted was the taskmaster that tends to spawn in that location, but I’ll happily take a named armorer instead.


#18

ehm, archpriests are level 3, so in this case high, shouldn’t it be (20+15)/200 then? or have you been talking about level 4s specificly?


#19

Oh, in that case was talking about the tier 4s (and also forgetting that arch priests are tier 3). In that case it’s 35/200 chance to get a tier 3 or higher, or 17.5%.


#20

Not as hard as he was to find last patch, but mathmetically still a challenge.
