    Hi folks,

    My exploration map is lacking a couple of enemies. The "Giant Enemy Crab" has never shown it's ugly mug and, after a couple of fights at the early stages of the game, the "Merchant Barge" has disappeared for weeks. I've contacted support and the advice was to keep hunting. My map is 62% explored with voyages completed daily. I think these enemies are way past due.

    Any supporting/opposing observations out there? Not game changing but hate to miss out on content, even the little stuff. Otherwise having good pirate fun. Ticket # is 1059561

    Thanks all

    A couple enemies show up only once, like Bruce, and others are just rare. Unfortunately the advice that support gave you is spot on. It's sucks, I know, but it's true. Maybe as more of us ask for more enemy instances the rate of respawn will increase. It's all about the desire from us.

    I don't know about *all* the desire from us. It's more like 2 parts desire from us. 1 part luck. 1 part pixie dust on Chris's keyboard.

    Some were swapped out to let the Halloween events in. Don't worry, they'll be back once Halloween is over

    No wonder it's missing. Thanks for the input everyone.

    Resurrecting this thread because the problem still exists. The "Giant Enemy Crab" belongs on the back of a milk carton. My map has been 100% explored for months and I've never seen it. Is this what did it in?

  8. The giant crab has been out if the game for a very long time!

    This sea monster is still hanging around. It exists on the map of many of my fellow guild members. Unfortunately, it would seem you have the same bug.

    True, a friend of mine just started playing a few weeks ago, and he has the crab. Has killed it a few times, too. Since it's in the way, I'm wondering if it just doesn't vanish once stronger monsters are uncovered.

    Thanks for the reply and I looked into your theory; A fellow guildie has a 96% explored map. He can still hunt it down and beat it over the head with its own claw. I think it's a legitimate bug.

    Fixing this isn't much of a game changer at present. It's a 1* enemy with no linked quests. Switch this enemy out for a seasonal update (the festive fish issue comes to mind) and a good portion of the player base will miss out.

    At any rate, problem reported.

    I have 100% map explored and I have the crab. However I haven't killed him in a long time, maybe if I do he will disappear.

    100% and no crab for months.

    Same as @Bear I had the Crab early on, then he was replaced by the first seasonal monsters, and never reappeared again. No big loss, he was in the way :)

    Resurrecting this thread again because my legendary pirate needs iron and it's suggested I fight the crab. I can't even remember even having a crab so if I did, he's been gone a very long time. Is there anything that can be done about this @Lynsey [Midoki] ?

    Apparently this is going to be fixed in a future update. Currently all you miss out on by not having the crab is the material iron. This can also be found by attacking a ghost ship. Just check them out before sailing to make sure you are attacking the right one.
