Once a popular Tarutaru fishing spot, this inlet in the southeast of Mindartia was abandoned after the Crystal War. The Fisherman's Guild recently took notice of the area and saw its potential gain. They have paid for the right to fish in the area, as well as operate their manaclippers to earn profit from adventurers seeking to catch rare sea life.

Did some ptying at 67-68 today. But after around 18 k xp and getting lvl 68 pld,i got the feeling the mobs was hitting me harder and getting inn more critical attacks. Even Tropogans was hitting me for 100+ hp. Not to mention Catoblepas banging away for 120+ and 500+ when doing stomp. This is with Artifact armor, Diamond shield, Glut sword/Esp sword, Vigor rings etc

So what id like to know is:
Do these mobs store hate for u like Tonberrys do?
If so, how do i release hate?

Anyone else notices hwo much different this place is after the patch? They added Hobgoblin Toreadors in a lot of the usual Fascinator/Martialist/Venerer spawns. Toreadors are RDM mobs and like to use Stoneskin. In an exp of 65-67 we had a tough time killing them because their Stoneskin would stay up for so long. They also swapped some of the Smithy/Shaman spawn for some Martialist/Fascinator/Venerer spawns. They made this place a whole lot tougher, they must have also made Alastors tougher because I remember being able to kill them at lvl 64ish in an exp group but this time we had a somewhat tough time killing them.

I was in Mhaura doing quests today and I decided to go do some exploring - by myself 37 Rdm - to kill some time.. so I ask my LS how to get to Bibiki Bay. Armed with the info I need, so off I trot..

Firstly I zoned and found a Coastal Rabab or some other type of evil bunny.. and it reads EP+ so I think 'Why not give it a try'. All I can say is thank you to all the gods in existance that I was still close to the zone.

Note to self and all others - these bunnies are not nice and DONT wana play..

Any way so after I zoned with only 25HP and rested, I thought I'd push my luck and go for another look.. the first rabab I checked read as EM++ so I put my head down and keep on trotting. Next I see the Coastal Dhalmels - didnt even bother checking these.. I was distracted by the creepy crawly thing I spyed moving around their legs..the Efts.. o.o

Cos I had never seen one before and had no idea what it would aggro to, I frose, and as fast as my little fingers could move I asked my LS. None of which had any idea. >.<

Well after one hopped right up to me and kept moving past without any sign of wanting to kill me, I figured I was safe and headed for Sunshine Docks. Now there are Efts crawling around this place EVERYWHERE...

Anyways I spoke to the lady at the shop/stall and the shop was closed and I kept thinking what a waste of time it was coming here, when I spot the Manaclipper docking.. so I trotted over and spoke to the lady at the dock and purchased me a multipass - 500g - and jump on board.

I had no idea where I was headed but I figured anywhere had to be better than standing around with those efts. So off we sailed, first we went to Dhalmel Rock - hmmm a rock shaped like Dhalmel legs o.o - second we went to the Purgonorgo Isle - this place was very cool - and third we went out to the reef thing - not much from above but its pretty cool if you shift the camera angle.

Purgonorgo Isle had to be my fav place of all three - i'm actually trying to see if i can organise my in-game wedding here - as there's not many people here, other than the NPCs I only ran into 3 others. And the landscape is spectacular.. even if all the mobs here checked at IT+++ or VT++.

I explored the whole Isle and found giant shellfish type things, monkeys, evil looking mandy things and toucans. The best thing was that I didnt need to use Protect, Shell, Sneak or Invis, even when I spotted the 2 Kraken or the Vicious Clots.

But one question I have is what is the
???Warmachine for? I didnt dare go near it incase it aggroed me. But I am curious to know.

Needless to say I am now 1/1 in Bibiki Bay.

Hope yall dont rate me down for this but i was told something a long time ago about the way monsters con. I was told that upto level 10 mob cons are on a you vs. it system. But after 10 the con of a mob is how it would be to a pt of your level. If im wrong thats cool. Just trying to throw a suggestion out there.

I've never pt'ed here (one of my static members doesn't have CoP ; ;), but i'm just curious: were you getting past chain #3? How much downtime did you guys have?
# Jan 13 2005 at 6:51 AM Rating: Decent
SE kinda screwed up when they made the Hobgoblins here.

They made them very high level, but forgot to make them difficult to kill. Very easy xp here. Can get chain 5 with a mediocre party simply because no one taught hobgoblins how to hold bombs correctly.

Something I noticed...

in the south of G-10, on the shore, you can see down (down and north) to a small ledge close to the water's surface. There seems to be no way to get to this ledge from either side of the mountain, and no tunnel that goes under the zone to access it.

There are mobs there- it makes me think that this is intended for people to walk on, eventually.

My guess is that if this zone is really connected to Hu'Xzoi like the data says, it will be accessed from this point.

Anyone else notice this? I'll try to get some SSs.

In order to get there you must first go down Khoonta Dunes entrance at H-9, then keep heading west on the bay of the sea. You will go under a tunnel and that leads to Bibiki bay.

For Bst experience, I would say that it's probably more of a lv20-25+ leveling zone for early bsts, to pair up on Efts.

The mobs around this range seem to be 30-40's, then 70-80's at the second part.

How do I get in here? I installed the expansion and registered the expanded services, and it's marked on my map in the lower left corner of Buburimu Penn. But when I go there, there's no way in, just a solid rock. Please help me... ;>.<;

Is there a cutscene in Bibiki Bay, like there was for Lower Delkfutt tower. My friend said there was, and it was better than the one at the Tower, so I just wanted to see it...and I thought it'd happen when I entered, like the Tower. But nothing. Anything special I gotta do?

Nah, there isn't, at least not for just being in the zone like with tower (maybe there's a CoP mission here?). Your friend was prolly messing with you.

urggggh, decided to run around here last night.. Everything was too weak to be worthwhile, or so I though.. Just bepoppin around, see a gob ahead, thinking eh, no biggy, didn't think to check it.. WHACK!! Hobgoblin Martialist hit's Kalia for 330 points of damage, Hobgoblin Martialist hit's Kalia for 360 points of Damage... Kalia was defeated by the Hobgoblin Martialist....

While he was slaughtering me I checked him, IT++.. Hmmm from to weak to be worthwhile to IT++ I didn't like that. So friend who was with me casted raise and ran away from me... I think I'm safe for a milli second and cast raise, soon as I clicked yes the jerkface turned around... Hobgoblin Martialist hits Kalia for 250 points of damage, Kalia was Defeated by the Hobgoblin Martialist.... SNORK!!!!!!!!!!!

Raise again, waited, raised and friend invised me and I ran... LMFAO

We explored more with sneak and invis on this time around, and didn't see anything special, I don't think i explored every nook and cranny, but I got pretty close. THe boat was cool I only took it once, I will be going back.. But If I die again I delevel =/ 457 into level 51 now...

I was expecting to see a bit more in the new areas then I did.. But I'm still having fun anyways =0)

I went here as RDM lvl 18. Bibiki Bay itself would have been easy: Almost nothing aggroes. The area around it (From Mhaura to Bibiki Bay) IS hard though. Aggroed by a bunch of Gobs under way. Fortunely a SMN on around level 32 and a RDM around level 45 helped me get to Bibiki Bay there. We went on the Manaclipper to the prettier areas. I didn't get to see them though. The SMN and RDM attacked some Kraken/Squid on the boat and got killed easily. I wasn't fighting it (Duh) but the Kraken/Squid used a Poison Spray-ish attack and Poisoned me. I got like 30 damage every 3 secs and my small Cures couldn't help me stay alive. We all died on the boat and I got back to my HP to level my Sub again. v.v;;

With the release of CoP, several people from my LS decided to go to Bibiki Bay to see if it was a viable area to gain experience points. Heading to the west side of Bibiki Bay, we camped at the a small pass before the spawn point of the Hobgoblin martialist (pass located at F-7/F-8). From here we camped the Hobgoblin Martialist (warrior-type), Hobgoblin Venerer (ranger-type), and Hobgoblin Fascinator (black mage). The party consisted of a lvl 60 PLD/WAR, lvl 63 RNG/THF ,lvl 60 BLM/WHM, lvl 61 MNK/WAR, lvl 61 BRD/WHM, and lvl 61 RDM/WHM (me). Experience on the first kill in the chain ranged from 165-180, and we were able to get to chain 4 for about 240 at times. Lvling on these mobs can be viable for a more balanced group and provide an alternative to Labyrinth of Onzozo or Valley of Sorrows.
