So, just as a quick question, but does this rare ever show up in Searing Heights or is he well, just really rare?
I've run through to 750 kills dozens upon dozens of times, including a number of recent runs where I invisi-ran to the fire cave, and have *never* seen him. Mostly, I just wanted to see if it was showing for anyone else and I was having bad luck. As an extra bit of information, sometimes there is other enemies in the cave, sometimes not. I know the other cave-based rares have a bit where there's no other enemies in the cave if they are there (i.e. - No quickfeet if Guck is up). Maybe I'm just missing some silly trick to get him to show.
And yes, I know wilderness isn't the best xp, but it lends itself to 10-15 minute blocks which personal life often dictates.
