How to Time Boss Spawns


This post will show you how to time bosses based on their respawn times. It will show you different techniques on how to keep track of spawn times.


There are many different methods to keep track of spawn times that clans on different servers use. This post deals with how I keep track of spawn times. There may be other, better ways. If you have any improvements, please leave them in the comments!

Know the boss respawn times

Each boss has a respawn window, that they can respawn in once they die. They respawn in a 5 minute window, with the below times being the minimum time that they can respawn at.

Here are the boss respawn times (as of June 28, 2016):
Respawn Time
Frozen Bosses Allknow 1 hr 47 min
Swampie 2 hr
Woody 2 hr 13 min
Chain 2 hr 26 min
Grom 3 hr
Pyrus3 hr
Dragonlord Bosses Glashtyn 1 hr
Spider 1 hr, 10 min
Priest 1 hr, 20 min
King 1 hr, 30 min
Sreng 1 hr 40 min
Troll 1 hr, 50 min
Exalted Dragonlord Bosses Onyx 1 hr 20 min
Skath 1 hr, 30 min
Gron 1 hr, 40 min
Dobby 1 hr, 50 min
Flappy 2 hrs
Phantom 2 hrs, 10 min
Unox 2 hrs, 20 min

Communicate With Your Clan

You can't realistically camp everything, or be online all the time. So you need to collaborate with your clan. Set up a clan message board with an app. There are many message board apps you can choose from. Take a look here to see some of the ones available. Right now, my clan uses Moxtra. It is has been the most reliable app we have used so far, and it is free. Look for it in the App Store/Play Store.

Set Reminders using an App

There are many ways to set reminders for yourself. One way is using a reminder app such as Alarmed.

The Good:

  • You can set alarms and restart them with a single tap
  • It is an easy interface to keep track of respawn times.

The Bad:

  • You have to log out to restart the timers
  • You need to start the timers right when the boss dies, otherwise you will need to change the timer length.
  • There is no web interface. You cannot use a computer to reset the timer.
  • Not easy to copy/paste into clan messaging app

Set Reminders using a Spreadsheet

The way I prefer to do it is to set a reminder using a spreadsheet. I use a spreadsheet on Google Drive to do it, so that way I can access it anywhere I go.

The Good:
  • Access it anywhere
  • Can keep multiple spawn times in one place
  • Don't need to reset the time right when the boss dies.
  • Easy to copy paste into your messaging app
  • Can access it from a computer, so you don't need to log out to edit it
The Bad:
  • Difficult to set up

How to set up a spreadsheet

  • First, pick an agreed upon time zone with your clan
  • Then create a template. Below is one of mine. Paste it into a spreadsheet in Google Docs

  • The top part is where you enter the time it was killed
  • The bottom part is where you set up the calculations for the opening times.
  • Here is an example, if you pasted this in column A,B,and C.

  • In the time() function, the first number is hours, the second is minutes, and the third is seconds.
  • Copy and paste the above formulas into your own spreadsheet in Google Drive to create your own timer spreadsheet.
