Thanks for getting that done. It will help guilds out enormously. Now the trick will be scheduling PM raids to avoid his spawn during P2.

No onslaught,Same as lucky event rules,RPP should be given if in raids ,I think anyway with them rules


Correct, he will not appear in onslaught raids or onslaught phases. He will count for RPP.



How about the non onslaught phase in an onslaught raid. For example: Phase 1 KFS or Phase 1 & 4 LoB? Will he appear in those phases?

There is so much to like here. I want to make sure I understand what you are saying.

If I read your comments correctly, based on server time, once the spawns begin the goblin will appear at the following times:
4:00-4:15
7:00-7:15
10:00-10:15
1:00-1:15

The schedule then repeats. Morning and evening make no difference.

Those are the times he will appear at one of the 7 locations. Those are the times he will pop up in raids. Is this all correct?

Suppose I have 50 e to spend. If I spend it in a raid I will have 25 waves. If I spend it at most areas on the map, I will have 49 waves. Suppose my odds of finding the goblin were 1/7 on the map outside a raid. On average, I would find him 7 times in 50 e. Are you saying with 50 e I would find him on average 7 times in a raid, so roughly every 3.5 encounters?

In the past, HoliGobs odds of appearing are twice as high for 2e Endless Zones than for 1e Endless Zones. So HoliGobs chance of appearing is the same for every 2e spent every where. They probably use the same odds for 2e Raids Zones as 2e Endless Zones.

Goblin appearances being every 3 hours, for 15 minutes - 11:00AM-11:15AM, 2:00PM-2:15PM etc. Morning / evening, makes no difference.

He will appear in one of the 7 locations at his active times along with any raid that is not Gobblin Goblins or a onslaught raid / phase.

We have adjusted the chance for him to spawn base on how much energy is used in each encounter so that there is an equal amount of chances to find him whether it's 1 energy being used or 2 energy.

But this schedule (4:00,7:00,10:00,1:00) does not fit with "Last Spawn Time 6:00 pm GMT", does it? :?

I think there´s a mistake in EST/GMT... 5 hours difference, isn´t it?
So last Spawn at 2:00 EST / 7!:00 PM GMT.

Can you confirm that PM P2 is considered a phase that the Goblin will not appear. In reading, I only see it speculated. I am missing any official mention that it is excluded. Thank you

(from a practical standpoint, I'd avoid the phase, because I am so much slower)
