Meta Event Timers
Posted 16 September 2012 - 08:56 AM
Sorry if this has been discussed somewhere else, did do a search but couldn't see anything specific. Also this could be in Q+A if more applicable than TA mods.
I'm simply wondering about the meta events in zones, specifically the 3 dragons, and starter zone events.
Although I dislike the idea of them being on a timer, it seems that they are and they spawn every 3 (?) hours or so.
However is there anywhere that says exactly, or close to, what the cycle is in terms of time.
I'd like to add to my spreadsheet, and knowing that say the Shatterer will spawn at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm etc each day, or there abouts will help me with getting there really. I don't really like going to a zone and having no real idea when it's due
I really enjoy the fights and the content is a fun way for me to add to my long-term content ideas, plus a chance to get a nice gold wep for an alt is a nice "carrot"
But yeah any advice would be a help, thanks.

As for 3 hour respawn - is it kicking in when the dragon spawns or when it is defeated? The latter would lead to some problem gathering data. Fire Elemental (?) in Metrica, Big Bad Wurm (?) in Caledon, Angry Swam Guy(?), Jormag and Shatterer have starting events, Tequatl doesn't. Also remember time-zones!
I wonder if all servers have these encounters at the same time.

I am trying to keep a note of when things spawn, preferably when the pre-events start etc, but I'll prob need a bigger spreadsheet to encorporate pre events and boss starting/ending times, and actually sit in an area for a day to map it all out properly.

Hmm my timer estimate said the event should have started (pre events) at 16:30 ish and so finished about 17:00. Guess it could have taken a bit longer then.
So next event around 20:00 CEST then possibly

The dynamic world that is present in GW2 will prevent that, simply because it will be tough to get everyone in the area around the meta event to co-operate. I personally like to think the process is a bit more sophisticated for each event, but I think the perceived 3 hour timer comes from the fact that meta events are required to trigger them, and you can't time those to a tee.
