Killed place holders for 3hrs with my Nin/Dnc last night, went back today War/Nin and killed place holders for an hour and finally popped.

A quick note, when fighting the normal mobs: Rafflesia- when they do the move " Floral Bouquet"(AOE sleep) Will cause bee's next to mob to become charmed. Bee's are pretty weak so nothing to be carefull of. Just thought it was kinda cool move.

When NM spawned there was only one bee near by and I did not see it charm it etc, however as soon as it went past it, the bee followed it and when I pulled they both came. So it looks like if NM has been up for awhile, more bee's (possible of 4?) will link with this mob.

I fought NM today as War/Nin, with my wife Dnc/Nin fight was not to bad untill it did sleep move, but was able to finish off last 30% by myself. Bloody Bolts help, would of been much easier as Nin, but was tired of playing same job camping same stuff.

Oh and btw, no drop >_<
