Then I'm bugged and so is she. Nothing new about me being bugged. *shrug* Thank you and sorry for the verification.

No... Paladin sometimes gives rewards, and sometimes does not. Inconsistency is the name of the game. I took out Jack in Irons in Grim Vale earlier, no Eochai in site. Usually when that event bugs, it's Eochai who does the killing. 😄

If 90% of the damage dealt to a GM comes from NPC combat or a player that has left then you wont get a reward for killing it. And i dont mean 90% of its max HP,  i mean 90% of the total damage it took to down a GM.

 

So if a GM had 10,000 hp and someone came along and did 200,000 damage because they couldnt outpace its regen and then you come along and do 15,000 damage that kills it then

 

200,000 + 15,000 = 215,000 total damage to GM

And

15,000 ÷ 215,000 = 0.069  or about 7% of damage dealt to GM

Meaning you dealt less than 10% of the damage dealt to the GM and wont get the reward.

Yep.  Someone beat you to the punch of trying to kill Paladin, but couldn't pull it off and walked away.... but their damage still counted towards the badge, overriding yours.

Paladin doesn't give any badges. It is the Monster Construction that builds him that gives the badge It is the lack of merit rewards the two of us got that prompted me to think Paladin does not give merits either.

Ahh, you're right.  Sorry.  Was thinking of the old/new version.

FWIW, the Council Goliath War Walker in Boomtown can't be soloed, and as far as I'm aware of no one has soloed the Seed of Hamidon.  They can both be duoed with the right power sets and builds, however.  Also, Ghost of Scrapyard can be spawned again within a couple of minutes of defeat, if you'd like.

 

Also FWIW, this issue only occurs on Excelsior and possibly Everlasting.  I know on Excelsior (at least a year ago anyhoo), it's an absolute race to find and defeat a GM as soon as it is announced, before someone else does.  On Torchbearer, GMs are largely left alone for days.  I've logged off next to Babbage in Boomtown, logged back on that character two days later and Babbage was still right there.  I imagine the same applies for Indomitable and Reunion.

Confirmed, Goliath war walker is not soloable.

August 5, 2022 - So just as my post mentions, players can solo most GMs. So making the GMs harder or something is needed for the rest of us that want to team fight them. Case in point -  I was asking for invite to a Kraken team and then broadcast for ppl to join me to fight, then a player says the following

[05:13] [Local] Blue Idoru: Just waiting to see who comes around. I can kill him solo.

(of course the player had several of the whatever they are called incarnate pets to help.)

 

Please check into this and see what can be done for more community fun and gameplay.

 

Thanks!

Um... Those were not my pets. That was an Illusion controller who was right beside me. And I didn't even attack until he did first. 

 

If I have my pets out, you will know. One of them is a big spider and the other is a Bane.

I have been leading regular monster hunts on Excelsior, Indom and Everlasting for the past few months (trying to get all monster badges on 40+ toons). I have only one complaint. The Paladin construction event is much more rare than the others. I wouldn't mind it SLIGHTLY tweaked. At least on Everlasting and Excel. On Indom, Paladin stays up for days at a time.

 

As far as people soloing it, I have seen this but it has never been a problem.

Paladin usually runs to the North not far from the Shining Stars NPCs. At least in that part of the map. If there is 3 of him, there can be no more Monstrous Constructions. If there are none of him, the Monstrous Constructions tend to spawn rather frequently from what I see.

My list of soloed monsters just hit 47 last night. The only ones I did on my own were regular Eochai and Jurassik. Once I hit 50 I'll be easing off for a while or maybe working on a new hunter, which could take months to get up to speed.

Ahh, Jurassik. I miss that particular bug from the beta for inventions back during Live. The Touch of Lady Grey: Chance for Negative proc originally had a bug that, when it went off, actually did negative damage to your target, healing it. This was fixed, but badly overcorrected; after the first patch, when it went off, it would do an absurd amount of damage, instantly defeating your target, picking up the nickname 'Touch of Lady Grey: Chance to One-Shot'. And I did, catching Jurassik in Crey's Folly when I was solo, and hitting him with my first attack for “4.183e+13“ points of damage. I was more amused by seeing that CoH automatically rolled over to scientific notation than by the amount of damage I'd done -- there were a number of other players who got bigger hits with it.
