When return to GH was first released, Brawnpit was one of the more common rares. In fact, it was usually easier to find him than it was to find the 3 needed giant relics to finish the encounter. But its been ages since I've seen him last. Long enough that I honestly thought he'd been removed from the wilderness since he wasn't listed under the main rare encounter listing. Someone asked about it today and I said I thought he was removed, but I pulled up the adventure journal and there's a second encounter listing and, sure enough, he's still listed.
I know its random but I haven't seen him in at least a year and I've actually really been (over) running GH this life. So much so I've hit at least every other encounter at least 3 times including all the dragons. I've killed the big red dragon 4 times, but still no sign of Brawnpit.
He used to (mostly) show up in one of 3 places - NE, SE, and SW. So, has anyone seen him lately, any recollection where or is there a new trick needed to cause him to spawn that I missed?
