I don't know if I'm just that unlucky, but I've been searching for Bashiok for over 25 HOURS over the past 4 days and I have not seen him at all. I'm trying to do the Bashanishu achievement, especially since I didn't really have any drive to do inferno because I'm a monk player. The only enjoyment I have left from this game is doing achievements, but this is really killing my entire drive to play this game anymore..
I know it can't be bugged because people have been reporting getting the achievement, but I guess I don't really understand how his spawn works? I feel like more than one champion can spawn in an area, but I don't know when I should restart the map. I've probably looked over the entire oasis over 200 times, and I've been running around with 25% movement speed and have just been ignoring everything except for champions. I've even put up a bounty of 400k to my friends to help me find him, but they gave up after 1-5 hours of searching.
Can anyone suggest any tips to help me find this rare spawn faster? :<
I already am in inferno. Couldn't survive with 800 resists in Act 2 and 1100 resists for inferno ponies so I'm just waiting for the balance patch to see if they give anything to monks before making another class.
Just hunting achievements to pass the time.
Also I've made a hardcore monk just to get some exp while hunting for this and made it from 20-27 on the oasis area alone. This is really frustrating :S
Bashiok is in "development hell'
Development hell is in the cemetery of the forsaken. It's a rare crypt so when it spawns you'll have 4 crypts in that area next to the 3 defiled crypts.
When you go down to development hell all monsters will be the same but named after developers.
Heres a vid:
Thought I help cause I had the same problem. :)
ohh it only spawns after you reach nightmare.e
hmmm it seems he spawns in the Oasis too.... LoL I don't know anymore. People seem to give me different answers.
This is what I found:

I've been in development hell for the jay smash achievement thing, but I didn't see Bashiok in there when I explored the entire thing :(
Edit: Thanks for the suggestion though! I'll try look for Development Hell again and look to see if he's hiding in there since I've also heard other reports of Bashiok spawning in there too lol

i feel your pain, bro. spent whole sunday there myself (over 100 runs). sold 800.000g low-level goods from the stash on AH meantime. when i finally went to bed it felt like i was at work really.
is this the hardest achievement in game? definitely not fun. i wish they made it one of those shamans 50%-present in the area (one's on the watermill, other is with the lunatics).
No, it's in the oasis. You just have to keep resetting the map. It took me about 50-60 resets to get Bashiok. And I don't know if it helps or not, but throw in the blade into your inventory. I like to think it helps spawn the thing. Lmao.
Also, if it helps at all. Bashiok had always spawned about north-east to east away from the forgotten ruins.
Your best bet is to just get the checkpoint right before you enter and keep resetting. i didnt bother with the map if the dungeon spawned in the top right corner or left corner. I checked only if it spawned bottom right or bottom left.
Bashiok has only spawned 4 times for me. Since I was trying to confirm it. but honestly. the spawning rate and the spawn location is still hazy. Best of luck, Diabloians.

50 hours later........
spawned in bottom left for me
lol my irl friends that know how much time i've invested in this are going to throw a small party because it was seriously that bad
i'm pretty sure this achievement made me dislike whomever bashiok is, even though i've never met the dude before
His comment seems to suggest that monks are unplayable at inferno level is this true? probably not but i was just curious. Even if it was there are 4 other classes in the game. i am trying them all already tried barb, monk and doc. im on wiz right now.
No monks are actually the most overpowered class atm great survivability
I beat Inferno Diablo last night with 5 stacks as a monk... It's not about stacking resist, its about balancing everything out. 32k hp, 6k armor unbuffed, 650resall, 1k LoH. I'm dualwielding btw. My strat is to stack ALOT of Dex, you don't even need IAS or Crit.
Ok, I'm royally pissed off about this achievement now!
I've tried to find Bashiok way more than 100 times already. Still nothing.
I have like 20 Rakanishu's Blade but no freaking Bashiok to see anywhere.
Judging from all those videos:
He seems to spawn completely independent from any of the building blocks
of the level, in contrast to Mundunogo and Ashangu.
And evaluating all those videos shows, that he can spawn nearly everywhere:
(This is a map where all the dynamic building blocks of the level are removed
The red line indicates my route)
Does anyone have any advice???
There are NINE positions where the forgotten ruins can spawn...
To which ones are you referring?
