Choya Stampede

So the wiki says it's a dynamic event, but I don't know what triggers it? The event happens inconsistently. Any help?

    I’ve noticed it happens at least twice an hour. But I don’t think it’s a set timer, and I don’t think there’s a specific trigger either.

    Better get a wriggle on.

  • I've done it often and sometimes it happens every 10 minutes or so.
    But what I've noticed so far is that it doesn't happen when the Amnoon race is active or about to start (the 5min-pre-phase) -
    which seemed logical to me because at the stoya stampede the eastern Amnoon gate is closed and if you wanted to do the race you couldn't get through - although you could get over it.

  • From my experience, it was often during or after the Choya pinata event which comes after a successful casino blitz run. Silversunshine (I think that's the name) has a timer so you can see when casino blitz will run.

    Hmm, from experience. It does come after casino blitz. But I could be wrong.

  • Ive had it happen right before the race event, though it did end about 5 minutes before the race was asking for signups. I've also had it happen within a few minutes of the race ending.

    It also has happened a few minutes before Casino Blitz 3 has ended.

    Better get a wriggle on.

    There are three types of event triggers I have recognised.
    1: time
    2: other events
    3: local population.

    It isn’t really a trigger on other events. I have also seen it at full daylight, so the blitz is it not. I think it is a combination of one and two.

    Then first trigger is local population. The second is time.

    So combining the reports, if local population is high enough it triggers with a minimum interval of 10 minutes. If local population is low it spawns after 30 minutes max.

    Over the weekend, I had this event followed by a raptor race, followed almost immediately by the event again.
