Easy as it is... you have a run, were you don't encounter Uruunaz? The counter goes up by 1!
If you have 50 or 100 counters, you get the chance to switch the last encounter before the boss in tier 3 or 4 to uruunaz!
If you encounter uruunaz before that... the counter goes to zero! :)

Oh, and with "encounter" i mean i really play against him. not i get screwed and lose in tier 2, but uruunaz would have come in tier 3 :D

I've essentially posted about this pseudo-random %chance to encounter Uruunaz - through %chance increasing, ACCOUNT BASED, after each Tier Boss kill.
However, the RNG God's only want there to be 1 David and 1 Goliath, chosen at random, every 1,000 or so runs, server-wide.

When I read the title I thought this was going to be about getting a counter like "Days since last Uruunaz Sighting: 29" lol

Uruunaz is not real. He is a myth

I am simply appalled at how unbelievably terrible and militantly anti fun the urunaaz encounter design is.

I think CZE needs to run the numbers on the player base and rank by highest number of arena bosses beat without an Uruunaz encounter (not counting tier 1 bosses). Then ask themselves if that is the real design intent.

Who knows, maybe it is. Maybe hoping to see him once per year is the goal.

The plan probably was to have him spawn a lot more but make him very hard to beat.
With the current state of the AI he would just be free loot with a serious deck so they had to change his spawn rate to almost never.
Not saying that's a good thing, but having him spawn more often would just inflate gold.

I do feel for players hunting the urunaaz sleeve and having no encounters with 200+ arena runs.
I do wonder how many people have been this unlucky.

I'm still sitting here wishing that the Uruunaz would just be a non-tradeable token that you can redeem at your leisure to fight.

Currently, you're punished for trying out new decks in Arena because you don't want to go into Uruunaz encounter without your best deck.

that's true... you run the arena over and over with the same deck... and it get's slightly annoying ^^

450+ runs here. No dragon.

I've not encounter Uruunaz yet but I've only run the arena probably 30 or so times. I'm curious though, I see plenty of people on the forums amongst plenty of topics who seem to speak to their number of arena runs in seemingly specific quantities. I'm wondering if there is a place to see your attempt numbers or are these people either keeping count manually or just estimating? I know I have no place to complain about not encountering Uruunaz based on how little I think I've run the arena.

Add one to the counter. A wild uruunaz just appeared and got wrecked by my slaughtergear deck. I'm so stoked. Haven't seen him since the first week of arena - and I lost horribly that day.

Hey! Are you running the Barkam version of the deck, or something of your own? I want to know exactly what Slaughtergear deck can wreck Uru.

Wow. That's just... wow. I just reached my 105th Arena run during Convo and I have never seen Uru. 450 runs without dragon makes me depressed. Kinda hopeless then for me.

Yep - I'm running Barkam's deck. Got a single Slaughtergear's reaver out and used Giles' champ power to boost his attack. Three hits and it was over.

Are You Serious?

Could we get confirmation from a developer that this person has indeed run the entire Arena 450+ times. If confirmed could somebody please get this person's address and send him a six pack of whatever beer he drinks.

On a serious note. There is this wonderful place outside your door....

AND... I'll send him a 100 packs! For a confirmation of 450+ full runs. That's beyond unlucky if true.

Sent a PM. The devs will have to look, I'm not sure how many are actually full runs.

I didn't think Barkam ran the Reavers?
Saffa - if you get any lucky replicator rolls, lets talk, I still need 3!

Shouldn't the true counter be "non-tier 1 boss encounters" as opposed to # of runs vs # of full runs.

Do you know roughly how many runs you did before you saw Uru?

Not a ton honestly, living up to the lazy DC name

I would say maybe 30-40 lifetime

Lol - you're correct. Just checked back and I'm actually running Ertzi's deck.

Double luck for me. I used the hoard to roll a bunch of AoM chests and hit Replicators two rolls in a row. Let me know if you're keen Nico. I've no interest in price gouging.

Chalk me up as another lucky person who ran into Uruunaz whilst Convocation Pack farming. :)

I've lost count of how many arena runs I've done, though. I'd guess a lot.

I've always thought they should have a slightly modified version of your suggestion. Every perfect run nets you a slight increase in your chances of seeing Uruunaz. (Resets when you fight him of course.)

It helps with two problems at once. You get an extra little reward for a perfect run, and you can at least make progress towards seeing the fight, instead of it always being completely down to random chance.

I actually met and defeated Urunaaz on my first complete arena run. Didn't even notice the guy much, just stomped him. Then I went to the forums because ... erm wut? 100k gold just for Arena? Isn't that a bit much?

Not that I was complaining.

What makes this story truly depressing though is that this happened on the test realm.

... no Uruunaz since, of course ;-)

I finally met the dragon today. My run tally to meeting him finally is 327 since I've been keeping track, and about 470 total runs since arena launched.

Kismet tried to take it away what otherwise turned out to be an easy win by freezing my game.
