Purge Issues (spawning location)

[So I decided to start fresh and do a new base since my last game maybe had to many thralls/pets and would lag and crash during every purge. So I moved up above the "spillway. " Spent a lot of time preparing my new base with fewer pets and thralls. I was so excited to take on the upcoming purge. Once it finally came, the enemies could not be found attacking anywhere. I finally heard footsteps coming from inside the mountain/hill… so remembering what’s happened in the past I decided to enter “Ghost Mode” and take a look. I found that the NPC’s had spawned once again… Inside the mountain. This is frustrating… I guess my next base will be on flat land, far away from any rocks, hills, mountains or large structures hopefully my next purge doesn’t spawn under ground. Other than that… I love the new changes and bug fixes. Looking forward to the next update.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Build your base next to a hill or mountain side (I’ve seen it twice… Above the boundary spillway… And also the waterfall area where the water leaves the spillway.)
  2. Wait forever for the purge
  3. Doesn’t happen a 100% of the time, but if you can’t find your purge, check all nearby fixed structures. (large rocks, hills, mountains, etc.
  4. Activate your admin rights, and enter into "Ghost Mode. " If your purge wasn’t visible chances are you’ll find them stuck inside a fixed structure.! The red map marker is where this happened… IMG_20190619_191311|666x500

Unfortunately, it’s happened to me and several others on our server at various times. You can either stab at the rocks until you happen to kill them, or throw poison/demon fire orbs to kill them.


Yeah, I had to go into the hill while in ghost mode, and then switch back while I was in. I killed the NPCs then just jumped back out of the hill side as if I wasn’t even there.

I’m sure screen shots of the map location and the building would be helpful as they are still working on purge issues such as this. Since you know where they spawned it would be good if you could mark that location on the screen shots as well.


Wasn’t sure if this was happening on all areas of the map… As soon as I can I will post some screen shots of where I have experienced this.

Hello @RJOHNSON2120, thank you for taking the time to submit this report!

We’re already aware of the issue and it’s being investigated by the developers.

If you could please provide us with the coordinates for your base’s location and the spot where you found the NPCs underneath the terrain mesh it would be quite helpful!

Thanks for the reply… This is on PS4 but I will post the screen shots of the 2 locations where I have experienced it as soon as I can.

On the map… We’re looking at middle of H around 7.4 / 7.5. Also happened to me on another server at G 8.3 more or less to the left of the waterfall
