Paragon spawn rate

    Is this still 1 out of every 20?

    I killed over 120 Balrons in Ilshlenar, and saw not one paragon...

    I've been away over a year, so just wondering if they changed the chances.

    Thank you.

    Arrrrr, methinks not one out of every 20, but a 1 in 20 (5%) chance.

    You are correct technically :)

    Just wondering if that had changed. Just figured with 5% chance I would have seen at least one out of 120 spawns.

    RNG fail probably, but was just curious if it had changed.

    Come to GreatLakes and follow me around. The )(#*)!(*#)!&# things spawn on top of my head non-stop. Nothing like having multiple paragon dragons deciding that you've been among the living for far too long. :sad2:

    Hmm come to think of it, I think I'm cursed. That whole blackrock infection thing? I had those suckers spawning on me left and right too...

    I think the rate may be different for different types of creatures. I was doing Wisps while training my Sampire, and the rate of Wisp Paragons was definitely higher than I expected. It could be I just hit a bad luck streak though.

    I'm pretty sure I remember it was stated that it's 1 in 20 as well. Haven't a clue which dev said it. Might have been Wilki.

    The lower level mobs are going to naturally seem to spawn more often because they can be killed faster.

    I was playing with the Ethereal Warriors in Ilsh last night for quite a while. Went through loads of them and normally would of spawned quite a few paragons, but didn't see a single one.

    Is there maybe a bug with certain monster types since the last patch?

    *plaintive singing*

    I've been mining for a shadow elemental,
    I haven't seen one in what seems like a month,
    My gargoyle picks seem broken on a level fundamental,
    I don't know what's wrong, but then maybe I have a hunch.

    It's that cursed RNG, I swear it hates me,
    It never does what I want, when I want it to,
    It sends me paragons when I'm picking flowers with my townie,
    But when I bring out my sampire no gold nibbles at my hook.

    I've been working hard in Heartwood making bows,
    I've got packies full of lumber and of tools,
    I keep praying for a runic fletching kit,
    'Til my eyes glaze over and I start to drool.

    It's that cursed RNG, I swear it hates me...

    It seems I'm invincible in pvp,
    My high dci has me laughing at my foes,
    But just when I think they'll never touch me,
    Some archer nails me ten times in a row.

    It's that cursed RNG, I swear it hates me...

    I've been churning through the champ spawns for a month,
    I'm getting sot's by the bushel and the peck,
    I could really use a taming or a provocation,
    I keep getting camping and forensics, what the heck!?

    It's that cursed RNG...
