    Default Increased Reaper spawn rate post-U46?

    Am I the only one who's experiencing what appears to be an increased rate of encountering Reapers (at least in R1 Heroic content)? I'm currently on my umpteenth RR, but since U46 dropped I'm noticing WAY more Reapers than in usual. Previously, I'd see one Reaper for every 30 or so mobs, but now I'm finding them practically every other encounter (at least in some quests). STK 3 for example, I had 4 reapers in the first 4 fights, with a total of about 15 by the time I had completed the quest. Usually, I'd have 4-5 for the whole quest.

    Is it just me? Am I just imagining it?

    It's just the developers getting back at us with more Developer Player Characters.

    Your opinion is correct. 1 hour ago I saw literally 3 vengeance reapers in one scarecrow pack in ruins of Berez. Also saw one vengeance and 2 smaller reapers in the closest pack. So 6 total reapers for like 12 scarecrows.

    I’ve noticed an uptick with reaper spawns as well, and have been running into 3 or 4 at a time per mob a lot recently.

    Reaper mode is like the wealth gap - the more reaper points/money you have the easier it is to get more reaper points/money but if you don't have any it's increasingly hard to get. It's all a big capitalism test sim by the devs.

    And it is as good as the wealth gap separating the low population further.
    The worst thing they could have done to the game.


    ps.: I also see more reapers spawning, possibly to make the game more "challenging". I'm sure for those with reaper wings it does make a huge difference.
    You nerfed my monks, throwers, dailies and alchemists.
    I hardly play anymore, found a better hobby.
    Thank You!

    I noticed it around 1 month ago. Maybe a bit more, I did an r10 slavers run, and I have never seen so many reapers in any quest ever. It was stupid.
    After doing 100’s of r10s I have a feeling when you step into a reaper quest a roll is made. You either get an instance packed full of reapers , or just a few, or some times Hardly any.
    So, makes me think they may not be always generated on pulls. There is another roll made we don’t see, I’m sure of it.

    Not really, those guys just use the same broken methods to obliterate the quest, then beg the developers to punish everyone else for it.

    Ran an R10 Slavers loop a week or so ago. At least 2 reapers in every big group. And so. Many. Doom. Reapers.

    I haven't seen anything like it since I started running high reapers. It was insane.

    I have noticed something similar to this a long time ago in reaper difficulty, Some times in quests i would see maybe 1 reaper if i was lucky, and other times i would see at least 1 reaper per group or often more. Im not sure if it has anything to do with the devs upping the number of spawns or if its just a weird calculation within the game itself.
