Started in Evantil with the gorilla (Uzrinar). Have cleared PH area 5 times now, so far nothing (see map on right at https://rof.eqresource.com/nameevantil.php,
I'm clearing the 4 platforms forming a parallelogram, with the two spawn spots marking what would be the left side of said parallelogram). This is with no names down in Evantil. Interestingly, when I got to Evantil, none of the 10 named mobs were up. That's unusual, when I first get to a new zone to hunt names, there's usually at least a couple up.
Anyway, this looks like a big enough time commitment, I may put it on a back burner. I will update here, when I have something useful to report.
One other comment: I liked HoT better, with PHs having very specific names which corresponded with the main Name. For this, I'm probably clearing more mobs than needed, since I'm not positive the two spots shown are the only possible spawn spots. So, another factor which may come into play here, you may not be clearing all possible PHs (or even the correct PHs), so that could also be a factor. But then, again, as you say, only on the ones you leave to the last group of three?
Another question for you... you've mentioned a few RoF zones where you're stuck. What was your experience in the other RoF zones? No issues? If not, then maybe this is just a bad RNG run. Also, any hard to spawn names early in a zone, before you got to the last set of 3? Edited, Feb 8th 2019 1:00pm by tatankaseventh
