    On Catskills

    Red key spawn is not appearing after the publish

    Not a respawn time issue

    Any other shards having this problem?

    Thanks

    The Red room boss is spawning on Atlantic but I did notice there is a LOT less mobs in there.

    Thanks

    Are your time between respawns longer than pre-publish?

    For me on Catskills, 2 red key guy spawns in the normal interval, with a BIG delay then 2 normal, and so forth

    Thanks again

    actually I didn't stay to check the respawn timer, only killed each key guy once. I was showing a friend where to get the keys for Travesty.

    I did the red room on Atlantic yesterday and he spawned 3 times with no problem but the shard went down and came back and the red room spawn was broken. I went to the red room this morning and the red room boss is not spawning again.

    Same experience with LS, red key guy spawns when you first go in, doesn't spawn again all day.

    That's interesting. I'll solo on Ches and see what I get.

    BTW, when did they put the Soulstone flag back up? I thought the two minute timer was taken out?

    Seems like Yellow/Blue spawns fine, but Red (Orange) is gone on Ches, too. Seems as if the trap prior to Red is also gone? The one right after steps.

    On LS, the Red key guy spawns until around 10pm-1am EST, then they stop spawning completely until the server restarts.

    Hm.

    Well, I keyed Travesty this morning and all the spawns were there. Got the Red/Orange on first try so I didn't try to spawn it again (wanted to get three strongboxes out of it). Keys last for 6 days now, per a user/fan suggestion. Neato. :)

    Well the respawn time isnt 10 mins anymore. Thats for sure, got one spawn after I had been down about 15 mins. And then only 2 guys grandmaster without a key and one more. Will be 30 mins now and if I dont get any spawn this time Ill give up for now, and well no respawn.

    Seems like the Red key mage spawns every 10mins (as usual) But occasionally misses the timer and takes an additional 10-50 mins to respawn. The other key rooms do not skip respawn times, also the Mage room is the only room that spawns 2/4 npcs, the other 'key' rooms spawn 4/4.

    It took me one yellow, three blue, and one red/orange to complete my set. The blue was being stubborn. Took me about 33 minutes overall to start kill quest, complete the kill quest, run through Travesty, get back to Heartwood, travel to Brit, and log out. Took a video, but I'll have to process it. I was bored, lol...but I'm using HyperCam 2 and the video ended up being 5.5 GB. Ugh. LOL.

    10-50 mins...yeesh.

    I've been to the spot where the red key spawns on the grand mage three times so far on Lake Austin and no mobs spawn at all, I will stick around for a while and see if it changes.

    Are you stealthed? Until the area "sees" an attackable nothing spawns.

    My wife and I have been farming a lot of keys for Travesty lately, we started killing everything down there. Popping the other trap in the front room and killing that too. Keeping everything dead seems to keep the timer on a 15 minute cycle.

    Nope, not in stealth mode at all. I got it to pop twice today, and then dormant again. I don't know what the problem is, but I would like to get back to farming travesty since I have her down to a six minute solo fight.

    Strange, just went back in and nothing spawned, killed the stuff around the spawn location, and watched a movie for 10 minutes, came back in and Grand Mage spawned, seems to be no rhyme or reason to this.

    Nicely done GVP. Good char setup too. When first released this was QUITE the pride destroyer, and I think it is still my favorite key collection. The dungeon is just so neat with the twists and turns and secrets, and the &^@! spawn, lol!

    For awhile I used Spellweaving and Magery, then a Samurai w/ a kama, then Mystic and Magery. A samurai with whirlwind is a lot of fun there. I still have to work on soloing Travesty, though ;p.

    This video was thorough and if I had the notion to get the keys on my own I would refer back to this video for the direction, well done Lyc. :) I especially liked how you explained your mistakes as you made them, and what you did to rectify them. So, you are planning on making more tutorials, right? Say for....hm, Stygian Dragon? :thumbup:

    Still issues with Grand Mage Red Key spawning (Atlantic Shard).

    Spawned for me yesterday but will not spawn today.

    I hope this gets fixed soon.

    While I have not farmed for Travesty keys since the publish I was in on a pretty long night of Travesty runs. So that dude who put it together got the key.

    This is Great Lakes.

    Red Spawn Mage is random and can be anywhere from 20-60 minutes long.

    Someone needs their head examined. Fix this garbage.

    May I ask how you solo her in 6 minutes? I solo her and it takes me about 30 minutes on my Sampire. I use a basic Sampire modded 100% poison radiant scimitar with 50% hit poison area for the copies. I don't LS or use special moves because of her blood oath. So how do you do it??..........

    I know Pirate Roberts is an expert on Travesty and has spent alot of time testing methods to dispatch Travesty as quick as possible.

    With that said I'm gonna chime in say that by solo he means by "himself with multiple accounts". However I could be wrong but I'm willing to accept wagers....

    I use 3 accounts and it takes me roughly 10-12 minutes.

    No one template that I know of or have heard of can deal out 50,000 HP worth of damage in 6 minutes. I'm going to call it impossible. Even if a template could WOD from the word go at 100% Health I don't think you could deal out 50k in 6 minutes.

    If there is such a template, which highly doubt it, if it was to be posted here you can guarantee it would get nerfed.

    This is one of the problems with sharing information and why I refuse to write tutorials anymore.

    I don't want to speak for Pirate Roberts but I'll venture to guess with the amount of time he's spent on Travesty he's not going to openly share that information with everyone.

    Players invest time learning what strategies, tactics and templates work best and when they share their "secrets" with others one of two things happen: 1) Players cry overpower and lobby for a nerf 2) A Dev will read the post and decide a change is warranted i.e The Osiredon Eels.

    PM me, I'll take anyone in the game down there for a demo, and when I'm done I'll copy my character to test and give you my suit so you can refer back to it as you like. Yes it is solo, no out of the ordinary template, no exploits used, only one single character!
