Has anyone else ran into this monster? Hit me for about 2052 damage and was just east of Camp Tranquil. Thing was huge, I will try and post a screenshot, already have one just trying to figure out how to upload or something ^^

Update!

Here is the pic, doesn't do it justice to the size, but just want to know if anyone else has encountered this or is this a NM? thing is that update isn't until 2moro. Hmmm...

I can't remember if pictures is a premium feature, either way mouse over your name at the top right and go to images. If it's not there, upload to flicker/photobucket/w/e and link it. It's a Malboro type? NM?

I'm pretty sure everyone who have done leves at Tranquil, which is pretty much 99% of the population, have seen that one as it's always there.

Really? Alright then, was just wondering , was my first time encountering one and I have been in that area alot of times before. No biggie anyways, is nice to see a big Molboro walking around hehe, feels more like the final fantasy I know and love.

Its not an NM lol, there's videos on Youtube showing entire rank 30 party taking these down, RocsLoc video. Pretty cool mob but its common in FF universe, been in a lot of the games. hmmmm, suddenly I have this overwhelming urge to play older FF games like FFX and X-2 and maybe XII again....slumber party anyone?

psst...We can have pillow fights in our underwear too...

Guess I should have done my research first but was excited to see this and share, been mindlessly doing the old, quests, craft, eat, sleep and repeat and was beggining to lose interest but its the little things like this that gives me the drive to keep playing, once goblins are back OoOoOo yeah....and if your on Ifrit Server on Final Fantasy 11 then yeah I will join that slumber party =P reactivated my account the other day, feels so good to be back but now I keep facing the choice of 11 or 14, I prefer the old but by golly I cant get enough of the graphics in 14, that and exploring and finding things like this Morbol here.

Way ahead of you, i've been trucking through FFIX quite happily (like my second or third fave from the series), just started doing the chocobo hot and cold games and oh god I forgot how much fun it is.

@OP: Even though I have done a good number of leves and behests around tranquil i've yet to run into morbol. Looks pretty **** cool though, although like everything that looks badass in this game, it hits like a **** truck and you're quickly returning to your last home point.

Fave game I have seen them in is XI, they looked awesome, still do. Seen the video, only 1 survivor! Insane, but I cant wait to get my hands on Morbol.

This guy I ran into the other day, obviously not an NM but also looks great, was getting sick of the usual faces around Black Shroud so was a treat to see this fella.

Posting this for fun, kind of off topic but is nice to let people see. Might give some people more hope for the game and stick with it as it gets better ^^

Each of the three starting regions has a large, nasty mob patrolling around somewhere. For The Black Shroud it's the Morbol. For Thanalan it's the Sandskin Peist. For La Noscea it's our comical blue friend the Goobbue. I've seen the Sandskin Peist patrolling right next to Camp Black Brush. So close in fact that you could probably get aggro if you were standing at the fence around the camp. Not sure about the wisdom of letting such a nasty mob get so close to the rank 1 levequest hub, but meh.

I've seen that same pieste pretty **** close to the entrance to ul'dah as well. Close but you can still easily avoid it heading on the main road to black brush. To be honest though I don't think i've seen it around that area ever since the last patch. Maybe someone killed it, or it wondered back from where it came but I definitely can't recall seeing it anytime recently.

It's nerdish super-important audio comments and the ever-same techno psychedelic
space music on videos like this that make me so happy our LS refuses to use vent
or any other audio communication tool. Server first? Don't make me laugh. Server
first US LS, perhaps. And even that, I highly doubt.

I think he is around the same circle, is just slightly east of Tranquil , his is the first time I have seen him ...or her O_O' .. so I don't actually know if he remains there or for how long etc.

Update tonight so going to have a blast hunting down these new NM....even if it only is to take a screenie....I bet if I hide in the bushes long enough I can get a screenie of some poor sap getting wiped hehehehehe *giggles to himself as he climbs in the bush*....and now we play the waiting game.

seen the morbol and the pieste, was very tempted to attack it but decided against it
Up by the morbol if you carry on norhtwards youll enter an area full of ridiculously large mobs all very nasty on the way to what looks liek a city on the map, i forget the name
literally as north as you can go in the black shroud

Why so much negativity about us claiming server 1st? We are on Istory, a low pop server. We also outleveld most of the server by a far margin.

From the beginning we were keeping track of player levels, we rushed to rank 50. Even today we hold more than half the server population of rank 50's. (We have 19 50's)

At the time of the video, we were the only shell on the server that had a gladiator high enough to take the hits from Marbol. We tried each and every rank our tank Carl got from rank 30+. At which time there was only 1 other tank near his rank (with no LS).

Yes, we did server 1st kill him, not that I expect any of you to care, but I felt this needed an explanation.

And on a side note, that music is Tiesto, I listen to him when I play.

The sandskin Pieste outside Uldah is easy. Nothing like Morbol or gobbue. Its duoable at rank 40.

Has anyone actually beaten gobbue yet?

Sometimes heading south from Drybone to Broken Water there's a herd of Firedrakes. That's right, a herd. First time I saw them I saw one to the right of me so I broke left around a ridge to avoid it and ran into his 3 homies.

I've never seen one there. I HAVE seen one on the far west of the Black Shroud map though. I believe it was nearish to Emerald Moss. Wherever it was, it was to the SW of the area I was in (2 streams leading to a large shallow lake with a waterfall filling it). As I entered the opening I spotted a large creature on the other side... I ran closer and saw it was a Morlboro! Then I started looking around at the actual area I was in.. I'm almost positive it's supposed to be the area from the Intro CS from the main menu (Before the guy (Destin?) ends up on the funky flying machine).
