ive explored about 50% of gridania top layer and about 25% muntuy sewers.
what i would like is a way so we know what monsters will attack us. so here is my exp
i am running south of gridania and i see a lindwurm chillen(redicon) so i stop take a deep breath and run by it... Nothing wooot wooot i am alive abotu 3 secs later i come up on 2 lindwurms(redicon) so not worried i run by and Wham one of em oneshots me.... i wasnt any closer then i was the first time.. is it because he has friends around and now he wants to show off?? i just dont get it how can it attack one time and not the next.
so i tried it with those lindwurms 8 more times and the with a wildboar (wich is north of emerald camp place) 8 times, and the muntuy squirrel 8 times, 2 fireflies 8 times (near bentbrench)
all red icon except firefly...
ran same distance away from each
got aggro 6 out of 8 times on the 2 lindwurms chillin
got aggro everytime on wildboar
got aggro 1 out of 8 times on the muntuy squirrel
got aggro 5 out of 8 times with 2 firefly
this is just me running next to em about 5-10 yalms(ffxiv measure) away...
got some ****** off monsters in ffxiv. i guess....
