Entertaining Mob animationsFollow

Just wondering if any of the higher rank folks have come across anything amusing or entertaining.

ex: How Imps get upset when you interupt their spells or they miss you, or how Galago types follow you around all curious George.

Nothing else up to rank 20ish has caught my attention so I was just curious if I missed anything or there's any higher level mobs to keep an eye out for later on.

Not high-level, and the name of the attack is some kind of "scratch", but I still think it looks like those monkeys are throwing poo at me...

When you run behind a dodo as they try to belch in your face, they turn their head to watch you as if they're thinking, "Now why did you go and move like that? I almost hit you!", then they turn their body to face you.

It amuses me at least. :)

It's kind of hard to watch animations of mobs at higher ranks. I'm usually killing things in groups for sp, and, unfortunately, like another game I won't mention, too much happens all at once in battles. The mob is usually overwritten by graphics from being hit, nuked, debuffed, weaponskilled, shot with arrows, etc. A lot of the mobs seem generally smaller in scale, too, compared to some FFXI mobs. I've seen the imp animation, but they're so small in scale, that I had to get up close to it, and zoom the camera in all the way to really see it (and I play on a 27" monitor).
There was one mob I fought that entertained me. The Ogre in Mor Dhona. It turned it's head, and not so much it's body, and looked down on me. It watched me walk around him for a few seconds before he turned to face me and prompty knocked me to the ground. I do believe the Ogre is my most favorite looking mob in the game so far.

Frogs are hilarious.

You can Head incap them (At least I think it's a head incap). When you do so, they flop onto their belly and are stuck like that for a good ten seconds.

Considering every single frog in this is mega super ******* huge, it's actually pretty entertaining.

Knocking the head off Skeleton Swordbearer's or Magicked Bones with Incapacitation. This amuses me to no end, knowing I have a chance of better loot, and that their special AoE has automatic slowcast...until they collapse into a pile, stand back up and regrows their heads ><

Efts also deserve a mention here - despite some being called 'Blind Efts,' their eyes and entire body still track you quite well, and for them to open their mouths and generate lightning is...well, hilarious and painful at the same time.

You may need to suicide for this, but dragons will change color when casting their AoE (Storm Drake went from Blue to Purple..)

I just find it funny when certain mobs look at you fight one of their own kind and don't help. I guess they aren't in the same party ;P

First time to Crimson Bark I ran across truffle hogs. Asked in LS if they aggro. Not paying attention one snuck up behind me. It raised it's head like a wolf and bellowed. Then it stepped on me. The bellow part was cool though.

The Toads (toxic etc) have a 'move' that makes them flop onto their back, think thats what you mean - it is hilarious when you first see it as well :)

Really freaked me out the first time I saw Coblyns and 3 ran up and surrounded me. First thought they were going to eat me, then chuckled at their faces.

wow I'm surprised at a few mobs I never noticed stuff from.

As to the chaotic higher level mobs, maybe we'll figure out their nuances once we can go back and solo them? I hope. I really do think the one thing they absolutely nailed in this game is the mobs. Maybe not how hard they are or whatever, but most of them seem to have a lot of personality.

If you try to run from a toad type enemy it will pull you back in with its tongue.

My personal favorite is the animation for Dream Bubble though, used by karakul. Puts everyone to sleep including itself, and blows a bubble in its sleep that gets bigger and bigger. If you can't interrupt it in time it explodes and deals massive damage to everyone in the area.

I was pretty disgusted the first time I saw a bat use "Guano Lob" at me. *shudder*

I did not know that about the Karakul, what a weird attack.
