House Centipede

#1Pale_HeartPosted 8/29/2013 6:31:42 AM
Does anyone have any trouble finding a House Centipede? I know I have a couple of months to capture one but every night and for a couple of hours, I hit all my rocks and either nothing came out or a pill bug pops up. It's 7pm to 4am correct?

Indeed it is. I also had a bit of trouble finding one. My advise is to memorise where every rock in your village is, then go around the village hitting rocks. Take one point in the cycle to save and continue, thus allowing the insects to respawn, and you'll find it eventually. Be warned that you may find it after quite a number of cycles, as I think it's rarer than ordinary centipedes and pill bugs.

This is just my theory, but it does help to visit someone else's town to get it. I never find it whenever I'm in my own town, but everytime I visit my friend's town, I catch at least one.

I found one in less than 5 minutes this way (note I have 2 rocks that are only a couple of steps away)

1. Find a spot where 2 rocks are the closest
2. Hit each one
3. If the centipede doesn't appear save and continue
4. Repeat

You're having a problem because it spawns more often in September.

My girlfriend and I have found them already this month.

Do everything the 5th post said.

Caught quite a few in early August, so if they're more common in September, I'll have them crawling out of my ears...
