Enemy Spawns

Hey,

Does anyone know how the enemy spawn system will work? Will it be like most MMOs(That I've played) and have the enemy spawn even if you're staring at the spawnpoint? Some had it where the enemies would spawn when you're not looking.

    I'm pretty confident that it will be the same systems games such as LOTRO, WoW, EQ2, Rift, etc.. use in terms of respawns.

    Well, in an ES game, it only took at least an in-game week for enemies to respawn.  Since this is an MMO we're talking about, there won't be "in-game time" to rely on & obviously a week in real time is longer (by many times).

    I'd prefer it if enemies respawn simply by the next time you visit an area, just that the enemies would be stronger, corresponding to your character's current level...although it would make sense if, in your own instanced experience, enemies were absent from certain areas for a while.

    GarlasMalatar, I am not sure the game is going to spawn critters/ enemies based off of one individuals visitation to an area that will see many people. It IS an MMO after all which means the area has to cater to "the needs of the many, not the one". Not sure how they would instance general world space or for that matter, why they would.

    @Dash Maybe I wasn't entirely clear.  Your point does make sense, but I think it would depend more on the player's choice to either travel in groups or go Solo (depending on individual settings for whether or not you want to see any other players).

    Right now, I'd say it's most likely that mobs will respawn at least daily, and maybe the exact amount of enemies present in one public dungeon could depend on the amount of players who are currently in it.

    It will be normal... you kill them, some minutes later their gonna be there again... just like other games... but in raids and dungeons they may no spawn... that's what i think...

    If one of us has to die, i hope it’s you!
