I posted under Sliggles the Sneak my experience that in Chelsith Reborn he was, by chance, the last named I was pursuing for the Hunter Achievement and he was by far the rarest spawn. It required 23 clears of his 5 PHers for him to spawn for me.
Now, in a bindable zone like this, my strat for Hunter is to bind near the spawn points of 3 nameds (using Gate, Sec Recall and Tert Recall), clear all the PHers, port out and kill time, then return and repeat until I get the nameds to spawn.
So Sliggles ended up the last of the 10 nameds by sheer chance.
Yet he ends up by far the rarest. The most clears I had to perform for any other named was about 8.
I seem to recall similar experiences in Crystal Caverns and Eastern Wastes,
It does tend to make me wonder...
The other experience I've had "forever" and always wondered about is kinda the reverse. I've left a zone with no nameds "up" (and did NOT clear any PHers, as I'm done for awhile and tired of clearing lol) and I was the only person in the zone, probably for quite a while. I come back an hour or two later and a named I'm seeking is up. Sure, it's always possible that some other player passed thru the zone briefly and cleared some mobs, thus setting up a respawn situation that happened to generate a named. But while this situation doesn't happen often, I do see it often enough that I suspect there is a mechanism in the game that very infrequently just forces a named to spawn. This might explain also why sometimes I will go to a zone for the first time and find several nameds up. Of course it could be they spawned after the last patch and nobody has since visited prior to my visit,
It's all strangely intriguing...
