    Just curious, as I make my thief and looking for artifacts to steal, when do they spawn? I mean, for the lower end arties, more than 1 may spawn in a day depending on the rarity, but for the upper level ones, like 5+, is it determined at server up if it will spawn that day, or can it spawn at any given time during the day as long as its timer is past due to spawn?

    It's anytime during the day.......and you have to figure in the down time for server maint.....then there's the 20% add on....meaning.....say an item is set to respawn in 24 hrs...20% of 24 hrs is 4.8. it can respawn 4 hours prior to or up to 4 hours after........at least that's what I read somewhere once upon a time.

    I've missed respawns alot, either because my math was off or I just couldn't sit and watch that particular day. It is a major project getting them all down too, as far as times and days.

    good luck
