    Did they change Charybdis spawn?

    I was camping Charybdis the other day, showed up and both mantas were up. This means ToD was 15 minutes before I got there at the very latest. I killed those two, and some friends joined me, and we killed the PH's for over 12 hours. Our ninja ended up having to go at the 12 hour mark from the 15 minutes before my arrival, and no Chary pop. I sat around and watched the next few spawns and still no Chary. So that's close to 13 hours with out spawn, he used to be 8-12, anyone know anything about this?

    There was never a max of 12 hours even ifyou kill PHs the whole time, its lottery. That's why the most efficient way to do it is get ToD and make sure it doesn't get killed before you go back, then start around 10hours on the PHs.

    I'm not sure how you reached that conclusion.

    Anyway, perhaps this thread may help a little.

    It's a lottery pop. The timer only indicates when the lottery window opens, it doesn't mean that it will pop within a certain time. Which means it is possible (highly unlikely) for it not to pop for days.

    Ive camped Charby for a LONG time and i learnt that it NEVER pops before 8hrs from ToD and it can pop after 24hrs too, so i always tell people its 8-24hrs. (trust me it is)

    What I'm saying there is that if I show up and both mantas are up, it's been at least 16 minutes since Chary was killed. They are on a 16 minute repop, so if both his PH are up, then a manta, PH or chary, hasn't been killed for 16+ minutes.

    Well thanks for the info, I always heard 8-12, and the half dozen or so times I've helped on him he always popped in 9-11½ from ToD so I assumed it was right.

    Someone needs to dispel the myth about 2 in the room meaning his window is up. I have told a few dozen people why that's wrong over the past year, but most still won't listen. One PH pops in the room, every time, period. The other PH can pop in the room or outside the door, and where it pops has nothing to do with his spawn. Oh well that's a side rant, thanks again for the info.

    When will people learn a Lottery is just that. LOTTERY. At no point will you kill a mob and there's a 100% chance the NM will pop the next time. (Well perhaps...but obviously since people have camped for 32hours, Id assume it takes a LONG time for that to happen.)

    There is no 8-12, or 8-16..its 8-infinity. There are only minimum pop windows, never maximum. (Unless you're talking a strict 21-24 pop, but those don't involve PHers.)

    Both times I've "camped" Charby and actually gotten a Joyuese out of the deal I walked down to SSG and saw him already sitting up with no one there. If you're lucky, people will kill the mantas between Novv spawns and it'll be sitting up with no one to kill it. A few nights before I got my Joyuese, I spent 8-10 hours soloing mantas with no pop though.

    finally someone else understands a lottery pop.. thank you lockecole.. so sick of people saying LoO is 17-24 hour pop! like wtf, who starts these rumors..

  14. #14

    One time, we killed Charybdis 3 times in one day, 6hrs apart with barely any need to kill PH's for more than 30 min. We thought we uncovered the greatest secret ever, that they spawned in 6hr windows... but hey, we never did that again so we never knew...

    Where the mantas pop has nothing to do with his window.

    During the course of killing the PH's; one of them will pop outside of the room every so often near the door, make sure to kill that one too because it'll delay the other PH popping inside the room. ANd yes, it's always a 8-12 hours cycle, it haven't changed but it's like LoO if I'm not mistaken; if you miss the pop window, you have to wait till next cycle(correct me if I am wrong)

    Loo is not lottery...its 18-24 hrs ...with a twist

    if you start killing the phs at the 18hr mark he can pop @1 and will pop before the 24hr mark. the twist is the 24 hr mark can be extended for however long it takes you to start killing ph.

    so essentially he has a 6 hr window that only starts when you start killing ph's, that can start @18 hr mark. so if you come @24 hrs hoping for an insta pop it can take up to 30
