Shei Vinitras

So, this mob is basically worthless now. Except for the Shadowed Storm Sphere clicky. People still hunt this for the shears though, which is what I did. However, you get the same bump in tailoring with a maxed tailoring trophy, so the usefulness of the shears in today's game is greatly reduced. Having said that, I still sat there in Akheva Ruins for 3 months.

I did not keep track of the drops I was not interested in. During these 3 months (Starting in October and lasting till Febuary) I managed to get a total of 2 Frizznik's Robe of Tinkering (For tinkers) and 4 Akhevan Shadow Shears. That is 31 kills at 3 drops per kill. To put it in perspective: That is a 4.3% drop rate for the Shears and a dismal 2.15% chance for the Tinkerer's Robe. Talk about really bad drop rates. On two back to back kills I had shears drop (1 each). I never saw a duplicate shear drop or a duplicate robe drop. Everything else on the spawn table I had multiples of at one point or another. Hypothetically multiple drops of shears and robe are possible, but drop percentages wereprobably too low for me to see that with only 31 kills.

Respawn details: Shei does not spawn on server up. But, this was announced in a patch message 7 years ago. Earliest respawn I saw (in 31 kills) was 3 days 4 hours and 30 minutes. Longest was 3 days 14 hours. I did have an instance of 3 days and 17 hours, but I think that was a patch day.

Here are my times (On the left is date of kill with time, on right is time since last kill). I don't claim the respawn times to be wholly accurate. It is included so I had an approximate idea when it would spawn, generally, it was around 3 days 9 hours since last kill. But it was not uncommon to be much later than that time either.
