TH and Spawn Rate
Given that Dio (and Gog for that matter) are lottery between 4 total mobs that pop every 8 minutes, TH is highly advised. Just got done camping for them and Dio didn't pop for 4 hours. Within that time, Bomb King popped 5 or so times and Gog popped once. Finally Dio popped and I got the scythe to drop. Subbed an underlvl'd THF but still, had TH1, can't say it was the reason I got the drops but I'm sure it helped. --Dressi 04:36, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
