We I am currently standing in the Abandoned Power Station, in the location where I believe it is said, I have had a couple of friends wait there for an hour or so then myself about this same, to no avail. The other Rakghouls have respawned several times over, but this Champion, Rakghoul Overlord has not shown.

My coordinates are X: 1007 Y: 1063 Z: -187. Is this about the right spot.

Yeah I checked out the spot I thought he was referring to, the other room where you don't get that last tusk/bone for the bonus quest stage 3. I did not see the overlord either.

Got him.
For people who don't remember exactly, here is the Power Plant location: Abandoned Power Plant
Here is almost exactly where he spawns if you're looking at the power plant map: Inside Power Plant
Here is what you'll see most of the time because his spawn timer is ridiculous:Spawn Location
And this is what the beastie looks like: Rakghoul Overlord

As stated largely and in bold, his spawn timer is crazy. We probably waited 2-3 hours last night and nada. I just logged in today to check. Had to switch instances to find him.

Good hunting!

Its a big *** rakghoul, it will be hard to miss.

Yeah... spent the last 2 days on Taris and no sign of this guy.

Sad part: I've killed him at least 3 times that I remember in the past before the achievement system. Now he doesn't spawn and my past kills don't count.

Please fix his spawn rate Bioware. Standing around for hours waiting for a monster to spawn is not fun.

his respawn was always bad
i think it's similar to the fallen Jedi on Korriban
the best chance to get him -> a new instance

After camping this for hours and hours and placing one of my high levels there to check on it many times throughout the day, this is what eventually worked for me....

Server shut down for the last patch. When it came back up, logged on my toon camping the site and he was there.

I don't know if the server shutting down for the patch reset it or what, all I know is that is what worked for me. I would suggest not worrying about it too much and try this approach so you don't waste a lot of time like I did.

I don't know why they can just make the timers on the roaming champions the same. Between the increased populations and the achievements, some are just way too long.

Camping for a WB all day is one thing. I don't like it, but I can understand how they might think it's necessary. But these lesser champs that most people can solo at level really shouldn't be that long.
