    What's with the Summoner?

    It may be my overactive and underfed imagination, but it seems to me that with every character I've played, on every difficulty level, the Summoner is always down the last route that I travel in the Arcane Sanctuary. There are only four ways to go, and invariably, the first three have a unique monster and a few chests at the end, and the Summoner is down the path of the fourth.

    This also appears to apply to Nihlathak...please tell me I'm not crazy!

    Nope, it happens to me too. It is the unwritten law of those levels. :D

    I think it is because you wear blue armor.

    They do seem to go in strange patterns - I have had stretches where they are always down the last route I travel, other times when they are the first.

    When 1.10 first came out, the Summoner appeared on the teleporter route of the Sanctuary about six times in a row, all for different characters. It was bizarre.

    Every single character that I've ever taken to kill Nilithak (sp?) the route to him on the last level is always the one to the right. I must have done that quest 10 or so times now. Not that I'm complaining...

    my last 2 summoner trips ahve forced me down 3 wrong prongs, both as a fishmancer so that is really annoying, but nihlathek seems to be very random...

    Sometimes, I get lucky and have the right path, but usually I am wrong and it ends up being my last choice. At least you get experience meals. Yeah... I know that is little encouragement. :uhhuh:

    I tend to get both fairly randomly. Summoner was on the second path last time. Nihly was, as mentioned earlier, down the right hand path. Tried that second, too, but decided to do the others first.

    Was it my imagination, or did the AS seem quieter after I killed the Summoner? Seemed like the last two paths had less in them than usual.

    My sentient machine knows full well not to irritate me in the arcane sanctuary and Nilly's cave, and as such, has almost always put them down the first path I go though. I think the first time I went through the sanctuary, and the last time I went to Nilly's cave are the only times where it hasn't been my first choice. :shrug: I guess you're just cursed. :)

    I swear bliz put in some script to generate the map as you go in those parts, and generate the correct one last, I've never got them on first try, or even second for that matter.

    I seem to get a fairly random pattern on how quickly I find them. I don´t pay much attention to that, however, as I always do full clears. :D
