Bastian Nymic is always Vhrogor the Pestilent

I have done Bastian Nymic 16 times and its almost always Vhrogor the Pestilent.

I think I have gotten The Library twice and the Vermina sectiion once, which I couldnt finish because the group couldnt kill Strix.

So at least 12 times its been Vhrogor, which is getting tiresome.
Is there a way we can even out how many times you get each one?

    Count your blessings! I seem to get Strix about half the time. I find him the hardest of the three, even harder than all 3 final bosses.

    I get Vhrogor the least. He's definitely the easiest if you're in a ranged build.

    I've done *** Nymic a couple dozen times and I have yet to see the Irrefutable Herald. While I applaud ZOS' effort here, to add variety to a "dungeon", what is the point if you never see one or more of the variations? My suggestion is to code in some sort of counter/balancer, or give us the option of which variation to run.

    I did some testing with a group the other day and found you can actually force a certain boss.

    If you go in and find you don't want a given boss, you can leave and come back and it will reroll. For our group, we each went in one-at-a-time and left if we didn't like the boss. When we didn't get the one we needed, we just broke the group and then went in individually. Eventually (I did regroup and then broke group again), I ended up in the version we were looking for and then I just grouped everyone while I was in the right wing and then we just went and completed it.

    Confirmed. However, from my exhaustive testing today, it appears that the instance is not "rolled" (random), but instead seems to be on a timed rotation. Doing this solo, I consistently got the same instance every single time until eventually, I got a new instance. I then got that instance every single time until the next "interval". That interval seems to be ~15 mins. Vhogor The Pestilent, then Kynmarcher Strix, then Eater of Secrets.

    If one, like myself, is looking for a specific instance to get a cheeve, then this is a pain: not only to get the needed instance, but to rally support to complete it. It's a big ask for your group to wait up to 30 minutes until the desired instance "rotates in".

    I got my Bane of Heralds cheeve and no longer need to "game" the instances. But for other cheeve-seekers, this will be a pain point, and an unnecessary one IMnsHO. The whole BN experience is difficult enough. including (especially?) the social dynamics, without this added complication.

    I always get the Irrifutable Herald. I pick up my Nymic daily at reset time, if that's any indication or point to work from figuring out when to time you Nymic daily.

    That's if what @BrutalDeluxe above me is speculating is true.

    If not then it's just terrible RNG for everyone :hushed:

    To clarify, I'm resetting the instance by leaving and then going back in. The variation is not set when you pick up the quest.

    Yeah, I have 24 runs completed and for me 80% of that was Irrifutable Herald. I had only 2-3 runs for other options. It's weird.
