My continuing quest...

As part of my continuing quest to enhance everyone's knowledge ( and figure out what SE was thinking when they named these mobs >_> ) I bring you this entry from Wikipedia:

The Pezhetairoi (Greek πεζÎταιροι) were the backbone of the Macedonian army. They were Foot Companions (in Greek the "Pezos" means foot warrior, infantryman, and the "Hetairos" is the companion or friend). They wore linen leather armour and Thracian-style bronze helmet, and armed with sarissa, short sword and argive shield. The Pezhetairoi were the Macedonian minor nobility. The poorer Pezhetairoi called Pezoi (singular Pezos), or Infantrymen.
Leader? I think not...

I've seen several of these things at once in Besiseged. I even have a pic of them: http://www.ffxigallery.com/pg_screen2.php?id=21294 They aren't leaders, they are just normal DRK mobs. :P All beastmen mobs (i.e. Mamool Ja, Trolls, and Lamiae/Merrows; not mobs like Qutrubs and Draugars and such) have 2-hours, just like in Dynamis. I've seen several 2-hours from mobs fly by in the spam; even an Astral Flow from a Lamia.

Compare them to the size of the other Trolls. Then tell him he's not the leader. See what happens. <_<

If he were the leader, Besieged would end as soon as he died. Last night, this guy went down, and Besieged went on for another 20 minutes. I'm pretty sure I've seen two of these things running around during Besieged, too.

Compare them to the size of the other Trolls.

Hey, size doesn't matter. >_>;

Notorious for not speaking and carrying a big sword.

Yes, he's the "Leader" of the Troll Mercenaries. However, defeating him does not mean an immediate win. One ramuh world Beseiged we managed to take him down pretty quickly when he appeared, and we still had to fight for about 5 more minutes to rout the trolls from Al Zahbi.

I figure when all 5 serpentgenerals are defeated, this is the guy who must make it to the "Inner Sanctum" door of the Hall of Binding in order for the trolls to take the Astral Candesence.

It does seem to be the Troll's Leader, or the main NM during Beseiged. I'm pretty sure I Remember him doing Mighty Strikes, and yes, it does hurt pretty bad when he does. Both times that I was in the group fighting him, and he was KO'ed, the Trolls retreated very shortly after. So I'll go out on a limb here (not really) and say that killing this guy = winning the beseiged.
