The community representatives need your help! A bevy of Notorious Monsters have ransacked cities all across Vana'diel, and, among other things, ruined some of their prized possessions! It's up to you to find out what creatures are responsible for these attacks and slay them, but how will you know who it could have been? Never fear, for while they don't have exact names, the community representatives clues as to who the culprit is, so you can give them a taste of metal and magic!
This hunt will begin on February 8th at 6PM PST in Lower Jeuno on the Test Server, with five rounds taking place. The winner of each round will receive the Behemoth, the Adamantoise, or the Fafnir statues, and everyone that participates will receive the Athena Orb!
Let us know what you think of this event over on the ZAM forums!

A Vana'dielian Hunt (NA)
Greetings fellow adventurers,
Trouble is a brewin' on the wild, wild test (server)! The goobbue, the bat, and the pugil-y are terrorizing the towns in Vana'diel. Who is going to avenge Camate's stolen lunch, Bayohne's hijacked chocobo, Okipuit’s ruined gardening efforts, and Rukkirii's chewed up nomad moogle cap!? The Community Team is calling upon the bravest bounty hunters to aid in solving the riddles that we've been hearin' and taking down these baddies!
