ÒK so these shadowlords are at 3 diff places, but how often do they spawn, does anyone know?
Halfday intervals, says the patch notes.
What that means, I don't know.
Hmm if its every 12 hours. 2x a real day. That means Atlantic was about 12:30 pm (when they were killed) and would be 12:30 am.
That seems to exclude a lot of players, Id say.
That cant be right.
Please PLEASE make this random. Argh. TIMER BOTS woohoo.
It's either real days or UO days (UO day = 2 hours).
I asked the Test Center people this but never got a reply. Everytime I looked on test center (albeit only twice) the Manifestations were nowhere to be found.
I thought it was twice a UO day as someone from Atlantic posted that three were already slain on Atlantic. In the past, vanguards spawned at midnight UO so perhaps the Shadowlords do the same. Grab a watch or clock and keep an eye out!
No sign of it at UO midnight on Europa..can anyone whos actually fought them fill us in?
I was wondering... I have like 30 cloaks of corruption from last event. Aside from those... I dont really need to kill the shadowlords but for the love of loot that might drop correct?
3 spawned on every shard when they came back from the publish. They are all 3 dead on my shard too (i got a cloak hooray!).
The midnight thing is from a past event.
I fought the Mt. Sho one as soon as the shards came back up (like ~45 mins ago). All 3 are dead. When they respawn (the halfday interval) is still undetermined as far as I know.
Dont you think this is a little stupid, only 3 spawn and maybe 1 or 2 times a day, so yet again something else you have to camp. lol
Yes, the Vanguard event Just a theory that half-day intervals means noon and midnight, UO time.
Sorry, I misunderstood. My bad.
You have a good theory. I just bought a clock from the tinker so I'll test it out too.
Were about 35 real mins away from one UO day since they first spawned on my shard.
Ok, just did some extensive testing on my shard.
The "halfday" interval is not based on a UO day.
Been almost 2.5 hours since the shards came up, and except for the initial spawn of 3 at server up, none have respawned.
well if they are going on real life time i guess the stuff will be quite rare since most will be working or sleeping at 12 am and pm. ;-(
What will be rare?
They only drop Cloaks of Corruption and minor ToTs so it isn't like they are dropping things that haven't been available elsewhere (or still available in the case of the ToTs).
ditto on ls in the waste anyway
well i meant the cloaks, i know people have lots of them from before but alot of us dont
some people sitting in spawn area for hours waiting, some people saying half real life day they spawn,
which is it??
Between three of us, we've been watching the waste for four hours now.
I would guess per half real day.
We put watchers at each spawn area.
Already posted about this couple hours ago in 2 threads.
It's not half a UO day. So it is likely 12 hours -- we shall see tonight.
Bah another dumb lame event set aound times no one else plays except Gold Scripters.
What about us that didn't play when the cloaks of Corruption did spawn before this event...
We are shafted for returning to an event that rules out the majority of the player base, just becouse the crappy spawn timer.
Well the shards are going down in 20 mins. When they come back its likely the Manifestations will be respawned. Here is your chance!
I just wanted to agree that some of us have lives outside of UO and some of us were in a break during the last time those were available, so from the sounds of it I am completely discluded from this event seeing as how I work 2 jobs and only get to play 3 hours a day, appearantly that makes me uber casual.
TERRIBLE IDEA EA OR WHOEVER MADE THIS DECISION, SHAME ON YOU
So, did anybody find when they respawn yet? 12 RT hours? 12 UO hours? 12 UO hours but it's broken and they never respawn?
the spawn is still broken on many shards. they were spawning at half uo day intervals for me until server down this morning. now they are behind schedule.
I think an official reply from a dev is in order......the statement they give for spawning is too vauge,( or is it vague?)
Me, I don't mind vague - as long as someone actually saw them spawn again today after server up...
Nothing is broken. They spawn at server up, and then again 12 RL hours later. As someone who has been keeping extensive tabs, I can tell you they never spawned at half-UO day intervals (that would be every hour lol).
Starting yesterday they spawned at:
EAST COAST SHARDS
12:30am (server up after pub)
7:15pm (server up after emergency pub)
5:15am (server up - regular time)
WEST COAST SHARDS
9:30am (server up after pub)
4:15pm (server up after emergency pub)
4:15am (12 hours since last spawn)
5:15am (server up - regular time)
[notice the difference in that East coast shards never had 12 hours up without maintanence]
Next spawn today is APPROXIMATELY 5-5:30pm your server time.
Thank you -- I can confirm the SL duly appeared (18:36 GMT+1 DST).
Thanks you for the clarification, but what about people who has regular jobs....
5am ==> sleeping
5pm ==> at work or stuck in traffic.
