I'm trying to get both the Irreplaceable You and Special Assignment achievements, but am stuck with the last two, Hyadures and Phyneus the Growler. According to Where do the Act 5 Unique monsters spawn for the Special Assignment / Irreplaceable You achievements? (and other references), I should look in Pandemonium Fortress level 1 for Hyadures and in Westmarch Commons for Phyneus.

However, other uniques can also spawn in those areas, so I want to know whether, if I should find either Captain Gerber or Dale Hawthorne, I should abandon the search in Westmarch for Phyneus or whether they can spawn in the same area in the same game?

And the same with Hyadures and, say, Razael or Lograth?

  • I feel like in my experience I certainly have seen 2 unique monsters in an area (usually a "rare" unique and a "common" unique if that makes sense). I'll see if I can find a video of someone else finding such an occurrence. Good luck with Hyadures, he was my last (and probably hardest) to find. Commented Dec 1, 2016 at 2:47

Not sure if you are playing on console or PC (probably doesn't matter) but I managed to find a video for the Playstation version where someone find Phyneus the Growler and has a bounty to kill Dale Hawthorne which should imply that they can both indeed spawn together in Westmarch Commons.

The video is here:

  • I'm reasonably sure that the randomisation is done server-side, so it should make no difference. As luck would have it, I've just had a (PC) game where Westmarch Commons contained four uniques: Igor Stalfos, Phyneus the Growler, Therk, Valoelle.

  • Just need to find evidence of the equivalent case for Hyadures and I'm done. Preferably by finding him, of course!

Was looking for Razael for a long time, it finally spawned with Valtesk (which was much more common as a spawn):

Scythys (as a bounty boss) spawned with Valtesk in an earlier game:
