Planar Projection spawn timer

When the Planar Projection spawns, start the Hailing.
An organized raid will have the clerics rezzing the unfortunate. The newly rezzed should hail as soon as they have strength enough to get within hailing distance.

Different Planar Projections are on different timers. Some have a 5 minute window, some have a 10 minute window. Also, I have seen the very same mob de-spawn at different intervals. This doesn't happen often, but I most definately seen a mob on a so-called ten minute timer de-spawn in seven minutes. It makes absolutley no difference if you start hailing immediately or if you wait until the raid is rezzed, since the clock has already started when it appeared.

Tell the players who already have the flag, to SIT DOWN facing the Planar Projection, or move out of the way, so the players who need the flag can see the mob.

Some only give out a set number of flags, then despawn, which might explain the varying timers.

This PP despawns in only 2 minutes. What id like to know is, .... WHY?????????? What is the reason behind this, i mean why cant it stay up for at least a hour or two? It is absolutely the most senseless mob in the entire game. I say, when you kill LMM, you get the flag! ***** the PP! And dont anyone dare say it despawns so that outsiders dont get the flag, because that would be even more stupid. How about the game recognizes whos in the raid and only those 72 can hail it, or add a option to the raid window for the RL to include names of outsiders that are allowed to hail? hmm does that make too much sense? Or how about get rid of this dumb mob altogether and when lmm drops you get a charactor flag? Whoever invented this or thought this mob was a good idea, and gave it a 2 minute depop time, should be fired and shot for making absolutly no sense whatsoever. And if you havent guessed yet, yeah i got screwed along with 69 others last night in a lmm raid. only 3 were able to hail. Talk about WASTING the entire night over this idiotic npc. GRRRRRRRRR!

I should add im talking about the PP in HoHb that spawns after the death of LMM when i said it despawns in 2 minutes. It has different despawn times and allowed flags for other zones. No matter, they are all equally as stupid as the next. Just remove this moron of a mob from the game! /rant off

Did Grummus last night with a raid of 72 peeps. We were successful in killing Grummus and the Planar Projection popped. We had a lot of rezzes to do. After 5 to 6 minutes the Planar Projection de-popped. Since all were waiting on peeps to get rezzed, no one hail the Planar Projection, thus no one received their character flag. Contacted ingame GM, and said there was nothing he could do about it.

Umm...Hailing this guy is what starts the timer, so don't do something stupid like what philon said and ruin it for the rest of the raid. An ORGANIZED raid involves no one hailing until the dead have been rezzed in and everyone is there ready to hail...

A lot of people seem to think this, but I don't believe it. After downing MM, I died while killing adds (no one had hailed up to this point) and while waiting for a rez, the PP de-popped. It was a lot less than 5 minutes that I waited for the rez.

I think the timer starts from the time the PP spawns. Anyone have any guaranteed accurate information?

My understanding is the if NO ONE hails, PP depops after 10 min. This is in case the main target is downed, but the raid wipes during add cleanup.

If hailed, then the shorter 2 minute timer starts. This has been what I have observed on the raids I have been on.

Most guilds/people/alliances I talk to go by the hailing ideal, but the simple fact is there is NO REASON that, after the top mob went down, you waited 5 minutes for a rez. THAT"S what cost you. If there's only one cleric left, they rez clicky clerics, who loot JUST the sprinkler, and get to rezzing.

Don't waste time looting your corpse, either. When you pop, if hailing has begun run to the Projection and hail it, then loot your corpse.
Level 1 huh?

Just an interesting tidbit, how does one determine this is level 1? You know the whole 45+, tier 2 thing seems like it would be difficult for a level 1 or 2 to come in and con it..
