Got it this morning. There's a couple players holding a game open with Bashiok in it. Not sure if the game is still up, but here's the link:
Its reassuring to know that I am not the only one pulling my hair out over thi ridiculously random spawning conjurer. I'm so pissed at the developers of this game, it's an achievement worth 10 pts and we really have to reset the map 300+ tiems?
Ofcourse I find Bashiok on my first run while I'm on my way to find rakinishus blade, once I find it, cant find bashiok, its been 40 some runs so far, but god damnit do I hate the oasis, its huge!
I have some advice...
You will find him eventually, it will be in the oasis. I have seen him there! It may take some serious running around, but my advice is this......
Dont screw it up when see see him! To get the achievement you need the sword, but it has to be set on "melee" (ie no skill selected). You can confirm this setting as the icon has a red background with a pic of a sword. Lastly, i think there is a bug with the swords or something. i have seen many posts where players found him (after 500 runs for one poor guy) and hit him and did NOT get the achievement (even though they had the melee set correctly). Some players think some of the swords are bugged... who knows........ stash some extar swords in your box and make sure you dont kill him too quick. You should get the achievemnet after one strike only....
Well after close to 500 runs I finally found him. Did not touch him and killed everything around the area he was in. Disabled all my skills equipped Rakanishu's blade and hit him, no achievement so I switched blades and tired again with the same results.
I tried 10 different blades and still no achievement so it does appear something is screwy with this achievement.....
Here are a couple of screenshots of the encounter......
I was on normal with all the blades found in normal with all skills and gear off.....Stinks that it took so long to run into this guy and do everything right and still not get the achievement.......
If anyone has him in game with a blade that works for the achievement I would appreciate an invite to the game.....
At this point am willing to pay for the chance.....
I read all the posts and thought i would have to look for hours - so just wanted to share
I did it on normal mode and just did a clear sweep of the oasis and he spawned about my 10th time
Killed him with the blade and the achievemnt went through no problems
As someone who has been hunting Unique monsters for months and months, I can tell you that Bashiok has the same spawn pattern as an achievement unique:
He will spawn in place of an elite pack, so check the hot-spots for where elites are spawning. There are two approaches I used when finding him: the first one is to do a full-clear of the entire map. This is obviously time consuming, but you get like 7 shots at his spawning this way. Probably takes like 10-15 minutes to clear. The second approach is to pick one single spot and zergling rush the heck out of it repeatedly. I used the bottom section of the Oasis next to the Ancient Path or w/e it's called (the entrance to the Oasis) and just cleared that section over and over. You encounter 1 or 2 elite packs max, but it takes considerably less time to clear - maybe 2 minutes or so. It's all a matter of preference - doing the first approach you won't miss him if he spawns, but the second approach is mathematically more efficient
