The question about time of day affecting Tubby spawns near Ellie’s came up in another thread recently, and since I’ve been hunting Tubbies there I thought I’d take a stab at proving/disproving it all.
If you want to help out, simply post your results here. Please clearly state number of runs; night or day; any definite Tubby sighting (the main focus is the Tubby but feel free to include any other interesting sightings).
What I’m doing is running Bug Gulch from the back entrance to Ellie’s junkyard to the far end where the Black Queen spawns; ten runs at night, ten runs in daylight, using my 72nd lvl Maya (I don’t think gear/build matters much here, but I’ll post if if y’all want) and noting what I see (Black Queens, Loot Goliaths, etc…anything outside the usual Spiderant/bandit spawns). Once I reach the far end, I’m basically just watching the fights develop, targeting certain enemies in an effort to keep the spawns flowing, and waiting to see what happens. When the spawns are obviously over, I’ll mop up anything still staggering around and do the loot-check.
Night runs, as of 10 Aug '15
- Total number of runs - 34
- Tubby sightings - 12
Day Runs, as of 10 Aug '15
- Total number of runs - 42
- Tubby sightings - 13
Daylight is holding a slight lead at this point, but there also have been more daylight runs overall.
