Ember Isle Onslaughts
how do they actually work, I need facts.
I'm aware the more wellsprings that are active and the higher level the more invasions will come, what about the turrets? do they also trigger more mobs? also should they drop more epics say..... 1/200 chance?
for trion dev team if this get's seen. we need more invasions faster harder and smarter, with fears/interupts. they're just button bashing sessions now. NEED A CHALLENGE!!!
Upgrading everything around a sourcewell will get more invaders to spawn and some elites as well to answer one of your questions. The onslaughts last 15 minutes and have a 5 min break between them but sometimes it will begin again early if upgrading threes and healing the well structure.
I have heard lots of people say that you get more invasions if you upgrade more things, but I haven't noticed this correlation. I generally just upgrade 1 turret and the healing thingies in order to keep myself alive and use the turret to take care of the small mobs while I just take the leader.
I have noticed that as soon as you have 3 people in the area that elites start to show up, and I believe the onslaught scales with the number of people in the area to a far greater effect than the number of defenses.
The problem is that it's difficult to test consistently because on a live server how do you know someone didn't pop in with a group of three people to do some quest inside the detection area so it spawns a few elites even though they never set foot in your view range? You think your turret upgrade did it, when its' entirely not the case.
Maybe it's time for a data collection run on the PTS for me
these are interesting facts, I'm testing a few more ideas out, with five people it's masses. but having 15+ people you get no more then the amount then five people there. so It's not reccomended having more then 5 people pref no melee as the casters are gonna nuke down hard. also the planerite and powerstone reward rate remains the same.
Do some Ember Isle IA's then you will see some invasions that will make the adrenaline flow.
