So among all of the threads, I have yet to see anything regarding NM's. Have any of you folks with CE seen any miscellaneous creatures. I only played open beta for about 3 days, but during my time in OB, I found 2 locations where Spriggan Collectors were rare spawns, completely out of place, one at a rat spawn near Limsa, and one at a honey bee swarm spawn near Gridania.

I think people are going to keep secrets in ff14. Unlike WOW where everybody tells every secret and discovery.

But if I find something I'll tell you. But not in general forums (evil laugh) muhhhhaaaa muhhaaaa

lol :)

Can anybody at least confirm seeing an NM without divulging the location or species?

NMs do not exist outside of leves, as stated in one of the interviews with the devs I read a few days ago.

I for one haven't seen any. From the comments made at the pre-live event it sounds as though they are onloy using NM's as part of levequests.

Edit: Rats - Beaten to it.

I found a bat named Screaming Kolong a few minutes ago. Went to camp, shouted and couldnt get anyone to go fight it with me because they are all crafting bots with 0 sense of adventure. Not sure if it's an NM but it sure didnt have a generic name like all of the other bats I have found, no other bats in that area had that name either. Can't wait for some real players to join my server (istory) lol.

Me and a few friends killed a mole named "Sultan's Trumpet" last night.

Nothing dropped except some shards.
We found it in Gridania, alone in a cave.
It didn't respawn either and we waited around for about two hours.

As far as SE said NM will only be in Fraction leves. To use a fraction leve you need 100 points in it. in Battle leves their are 3 different ones. The more stars you do the more Fraction point you get for that Leve.

Those Sultan Trumpet moles are not unique. I saw 2 of them next to each other before.

Well no NMs, but for now surely higher leveled mobs in no groups.
Saw this walking around outside ul'dah:

All the mobs you see with different names are just Guild Leves mobs.

Devils Advocate

I have seen some with different name outside of GL, but they don't give anything different. So maybe they have NM that don't do anything special....

The Screaming Kolong bat I found wasnt a guild leve mob. I was able to attack and get killed by it fairly easily LOL. Also I took the time to check every other cave and bat in that zone, almost 2 hours and no other bats had that same name. I do believe it is a NM and that others are out there. Finding a group and party to kill them is another story because everyone in camps are mindless crafters at this time. Grrrr

I saw this one mob that had a weird color icon. I tried to gauge what color it was exactly, but I couldn't, it was impossible to gauge...

This really isn't a NM, but I found him to be pretty darn cool.

yeah, those Kobolds are for a faction Lev, we were running those last night. Great looking monsters! :)

As for NMs, I have not seen any. Every time I think I find one, I eventually find another of the same mob elsewhere. :(

Can you link the interview?

I think people got the wrong impression from the dev's pre-live commentary. They said there will be guildleve NMs, but I don't think they ever said there WON'T be any roaming NMs. The pre-live statements were mistranslated I think by ffxivcore.com to say there weren't any open world NMs, but the write-up was subsequently changed to correct the error.

This is basically what SE has said about NMs, to my knowledge (as posted by Eorzeapedia, not sure who translated):
Quote:
Notorious Monsters will be added, most of them being different in appearance than their family members. Some are larger than Morbols!


and

Quote:
Several high level leves will be introduced. New monsters, rules and operation locations will be included in these. Guildleve based NM battles will also be introduced.


These two quotes do not mean no open world NMs.

Here are my sources:

I found a mob in Thanalan named Amalj'aa Pugilist. Here is a link http://ffxiv.zam.com/Im/image/176934 I ran by him at night and he didn't seem to notice me....but when I ran up to him during the day to get a screenie (thinking he was non-aggressive) he pummeled me with one hit.

That's a Beastman. And the Pieste, I think that was an NM actually. I ran into it on Besaid too, it wasn't too far from the first camp I believe as I recall thinking it was oddly out of place there. I think the NMs do exist but they either have less than stellar drops or just rare drops. Wanna bet that whatever they drop this time will be goods used to make the item and not a certain pair of boots? How a lizard like Leaping Lizzy could be carrying a pair of boots on hand in FFXI is beyond me. :P
