Draconi Dude... Randomize these spawns.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Jul 15, 2009.

  1. Now if they are I apologize. But right now it doesnt seems so.

    This event is going to get beat down for sheer lack of random popping of the shadowlords.

    I work. Ill miss this event. No sweat. I have what I need.

    But on Atlantic the times just don't jive with working folk.

    Even so, RANDOM means popping in and exploring. Not setting a meat timer to ring every 12 hours.

    Ill buy you a pint or a cup of joe depending on your poison.

    Yeah the whole timer thing sucks.
    It should be totally random. We should have to seek them out.

    Yeah, my wife was really looking forward to this event until she found out we wouldn't be able to participate. Would be nice if the 3 shadow lords maybe popped at different times a few hours apart so there is at least a chance of participating in killing one of them. In any case, good luck to everyone and hope you all enjoy the event.

    I agree. Most events are scheduled at hours when I am at work, and I haven't participated in but one. Would be nice to get a chance to try my luck, but if not, oh well, I'll keep playing.

    I agree that they are definitely wimpy and I wish they spawned like the Vanguards did.

    I have been thinking about this and I think things will have to change soon. The shadowlords are looking for something and they created the tokuno treasures to distract us away from them. Once they realize that we are not all distracted they will have to send more manifestations and maybe other things so they can completed their mission.

    So maybe we just have to be a little patient and see what happens :)
  9. Actually now that I think about I think I owe Drac a cup of coffee for falling prey to the give me give me give me now mentality.

    Though my point was more about randomizing the times but...

    I figure the DEVS are like...

    Relax people. Dont you know the event will progress with shadowlords increasing the number of appearances over time. Geez, let the event move along and you will shadowlords popping at different intervals more frequently.

    I think that if the spawns were too random, there is a chance they would be missed. I am not fond of the wild goose chase events.

    I was also wondering if the locations meant anything. As in:

    Mt Sho: Fire
    WinterSpur: Ice
    Waste: Wind (?)

    That recent piece of fiction started "Winds change . . .", which I took to mean something up in dungeon Wind.
