comment Do bosses or boss encounters respawn?
-1: This is definitely not true on the PC version. If you clear an area and fast travel away/back it will still be cleared. Some time later the mobs will spawn again (or if you exit the game).

comment What level should I be by the time I face the Warden in Borderlands 2?
The game offers you a hint about this for everything you encounter: If there's a little skull by its health bar, the game thinks you should run!

comment Plant Respawn Time
@DeanMc if so, that would explain why the plants in the archmage's quarters never grow back for me.

If only I could upvote that last sentence more times.

comment How do I know if an NPC is hostile?
No, I've definitely had bandits appear blue (using detect life) before they alert to me. Walked right up to them and got jumped. Also the trigger for putting NPCs in the game is closer than Detect Life's range so sometimes an "empty" hut will not be empty if you get closer.

Same thing happens on PS3.

comment Are all circlets acceptable for the Mage Armor perk?
That's why I mentioned Morokei (a mask) which does negate Mage Armor.

comment How do I redeem my free PS3 games for the “Welcome Back” post outage?
@Juan, I appreciate that it can be off-topic regardless of its popularity. In about 30 days it will be of no use to anyone.

comment How do I redeem my free PS3 games for the “Welcome Back” post outage?
Ironic that my first closed question (for "not generally applicable") also earned me the "popular question" badge for getting over 1000 views. When the Welcome Back program is active I will update the question with an answer if it is not blindingly obvious.

comment What effect does framerate have on mob spawning?
I have considered making a rail system that carries me far away and then returns me to the pickup spot for a while (giant redstone delay line!) before sending me away again.

comment What effect does framerate have on mob spawning?
That causes many things to spawn as I arrive... once. When they're dead, usually nothing spawns anywhere around me for hours.

@Resorath I tried that many times before the update with no effect.

comment Can I safely uninstall games purchased from Steam?
When I bought a new PC I tried that method to move games across but it was slower than re-downloading.

comment How do I get back to my first spawning point?
Should get -1: Compasses always point at your original spawn.
