    Absolute BS. Seven hours at one camp for one spawn and 11 hours at another spot and zero spawns.

    That's no fun. However, that hasn't been my experience with the increased spawn rates. If you hadn't already, I suggest camping numerous nameds at once if possible.

    Double a 2% chance is still sadism.

    Targets vary, as should expectations.

    {not saying "rare spawn event" couldn't be made a better multiplier...}

    Ya a 1% spawn chance spawn of a rare on a table of 5 or 6 other NPC's that have a much higher spawn chance is just increasing that chance to 2%. It all boils down to the RNG.

    Great, ANOTHER one of these threads. Can I have your gear? Ragequit incoming. Go play WoW if you want everything handed to you.

    Devs posted that mobs that are solely in game for quests are not bounced. That may include this

    The double rare bonus is working. You are just very unlucky on it. Also if you kill only 1 ph of 3 for example, you will have a reduced chance to spawn your named.

    The problem is that the rares have a complete different probability of spawning - depending also on expansion. Some rares are spawning very regularly e.g. HoT rares. Some are so rare that even with a double rare spawn you can kill them for ages - the Hunter is nice to do in higher levels but the smaller ones are still on "old classic world rarity" and that can sometimes suck a lot :(

    I just think old world eq hunters are just stupid rare. although I did SG never saw ailing isn't that mob for a epic or something? I did get dunedigger while back in nro though. although the erg bluntbruiser or whatever his name is sro gave me more problems to spawn.

    oops spell check screwed me, they are not "doubled" if quest only mobs (not "bounced)

    Since this started I have had 10 out of 12 gribbles spawn named. I also did Lceanium and SW hunter so far. No named took more than 5 spawn cycles to pop, and most within 3. One named popped on the first PH, and by the time I killed it, the 3rd PH of the same spawn cycle popped as the same named again.

    It's working fine.

    Also keep in mind that rares can also get bugged out. It's rare but it still happens to this day. It's been happening forever. I'm not saying that's it, but it is a possibility. I've seen place holders get bugged out and won't re-spawn ever. I've seen PH's skip a re-spawn cycle, but then pop the next round. I've also killed HUNDREDS of a single rares PH's over the course of weeks before and it just wouldn't spawn. It's weird.

    A zone re-pop or server down does the trick. Always best to hunt rares upon server-ups, they just seem to work better then.

    Double rares is defiantly working atm. It's pretty easy to see but as others mentioned, some rares just have abysmal spawn rates. Doubling 2% is still only 4%. Stay vigilant! or come back after next patch / server-up :cool:

    I'm not the one who comes onto the forums and constantly complains. Go troll in WoW

    Which ones? The ones that say it's working, or the ones that say it's not?

    The OPs.

    No matter how many years go by, there are still people that don't grasp how statistics work.
