    Ok like everyone else I am looking for the officers. Now have seen NPC's in states of Cowardness, Frightened, Hatred not sure if there is others.

    My questions - how do you progress the NPC's thru the stages to get officers to spawn ... do u kill them or just wait?

    If wait I can tell hatred is last stage but where do cowardness and frightened fit in, is there a time for stages to change like there is on an IDOC

    Any other info that can be provided would be welcome :thumbup1:


    (did try searching stratics but War, invasion , etc get way to many hits for me to find what im looking for, Thx)

    The Cowardess, Frightened, and Hatred NPCs are not related to the NPC officers. The NPC officers spawn along with any of the other spawn that happens in the cities (Orcs in Trinsic, Elementals in Skara Brae, Undead in Moonglow, etc). Only when the invasions are happening in the city do the officers like the Generals, Recruits, etc start to spawn.

    Ok but to my understanding the cowards, hatred etc spawn only once signil has been stolen in fel i believe. so once stolen what causes invasion to happen or have i completly misunderstood this invasion?

    That's how it works in a nutshell. Only 3 cities can be invaded at a time, because there are only 3 shadow lords. There appears to be a bug that can cause more than 3 cities to get invaded, but that's not supposed to happen. There also appears to be a bug that gets towns stuck in "invaded" mode without any spawns. We still need to figure out what's causing that if it is indeed happening.

    When an invasion is defeated the npcs will lose their shadowlord influence and go back to normal. If there are other towns under SL control, another town will then be invaded.

    ok but you can have a town with cowards etc with no officers, seems that you kill enough officers then crimson Drag spawns and once shes dead town is saved.

    So back to original question what/how do you get the officers to spawn from when NPC change status.

    BTW thought I read there would be Platinum Dragons has anyone seen one yet or did they get droppped??

    Platinum dragons aren't spawning yet.

    If you are seeing towns with SL-effected npcs and no invasion stuff (including crimsons), that could be the result of a bug. I think the jury is still out to a degree on that one.
