Are mobs spawning too fast?Follow

Level 6 dorf order Healer and having problems with mobs re-spawning too fast after killing them.

Anyone else notice this?

For example - I clear a room with three trolls. Then I pull the "champion" troll. While fighting the champion troll, the 3 trolls will re-pop right in the middle of the battle. Its very frustrating.

I understand that there are a bunch of other peeps running around that need mobs to kill but this is a bit overdone IMHO.

I expect they'll tweak these rates down fairly soon .. after the glut of players has moved up the rank table.

On the other side of the coin ... there have been a number of occasions where quest mobs have been spawning too slowly which leads to a competition for them. when you're a low rank BW with no instant damage abilities, it can get frustrating trying to tag critters ....

Yeah, I've had a hard time in some areas because of this as well, most notably in Ellyrion. In some cases I've been in camps of mobs that have 2, sometimes 3 champions running through them at random intervals, and the quests I've had to do there have taken me longer because of it. Really gets annoying at times, and it's actually the reason why I've taken my DoK into the greenskin area to lvl up.

if you have a problem with a mobs spawn rate, submit feedback on it.

should be the far left button on the top row of things, should be a feedback button there.

There was a interview somewhere that said they had the spawn rate set artificially high to deal with the launch player load. They would tweak it down after players played through some of the zones.

God yes. It's extremely frustrating sometimes, but I've also found it quite helpful when it comes to getting some xp I might otherwise be too lazy to bother with at 2 AM. I kind of have no choice, though sometimes wine and laziness does overcome me to the extent I just let myself eat dirt.

I've noticed this as well, but it is necessary I think in a lot of areas as was mentioned earlier. They are aware of it and will tweak it down when everyone moves further through the zones.

Normally a fast spawn rate wouldn't bother me, but when I can't kill two mobs before the first one respawns, it's a wee bit too fast.
Please "talk up" if your comprehension white-shifts. I will use simple-happy language-words to help you understand.
