Respawning Minogon

Post  Amagon on Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:20 am

Elvith here;

I found a location (I won't be specific here due to possible spoiler) where a Minogon just kept respawning. I went back there 3 times in two day but the Minogon just kept respawning with no cap in sight.

I was discussing this with another player ooc and it was suggested that I could just cast invisibility and bypass the respawns. It was suggested that just killing respawns over and over might be considered powergamming.

I guess I'll try going invisible next time and continue exploring. The respawn happens rapidly and blocks a narrow passage. Anyway we thought this would be a good topic to bring up here in the DM forum. Maybe a cap on respawns or another form of remidy is needed. Or some other advice?

I would try to form a party but there is seldom anyone of the appropriate level available.

uuum.... could you be more specific?

Things are supposed to re-spawn after a time lapse so what makes this abnormal?

It may be about the frequency. I ran into a similar problem northeast of tivook with some ants. I mean I would take a step or two, kill an ant, another step or two, another would respawn, etc etc. There was a server warning in the log box that noted powerleveling suspect. So I ran. Neutral

Yes, frequency is the issue. The respawn is less than 4 seconds.

Good question friend!
I know the location and the spawns here are intentional for undisclosed reasons. There will eventually be better narrative text in the combat to explain that the shattered bits begin reassembling themselves as soon as they are defeated/downed. Quirky bunch ain't they?

Be well. Game on.

Yep, but they also give repeated XP everytime you shatter them, meaning it is possible to abuse it.
