Ok, piece of advice, BLMs stay up on the bridge. Going down into the melee area invites horrible, horrible death. Good news, if you die you don't lose experience. Well it was good news for me since I reraised 3 times during the undead attack since I got stuck down below. That fight all I did was cure and raise people and I got almost 300 exp for it.

Can't wait for the next one, I think next time I will try to get sanction with refresh before the fight starts.

Ahhh, so that's what happened.

Maintenance Notes - http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/polnews/news7592.shtml

They upped the growth rate and the mob level for Beseiged. I was reading a thread on Allakhazam that mentioned that the mobs had made off with the teleportaru on a couple of worlds. My favourite post about this was:

So we just had our first massive onslaught of beastmen for besieged on the Garuda server. Needless to say, SEs new update caught most people with their pants down.

It was a tough battle and looked very grim, but we were able to pull it off and beat the beastmen back to Mamook.

That being said however, they ran off with our little Jeuno warp taru.

NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I SEEN SO MANY ANGRY AND MOTIVATED PEOPLE! It was freaking hilarious. War chants of "Save the Taru" and "Operation Taru Freedom" rang across of all Al'Zabi. A massive strike force was immediately dispatched to rescure our little stuttering taru companion (and the other 3 hostages). About a half-hour later, all NPCs were accounted for and the Mamook went from 75 down to 60.

If anyone was in the rescue strike force, I would love to hear some stories about how that went. Visions of {Burn} {Mamook} {Death} to {Majool Savages} still race across my screen giving me a good laugh. Just the sight of 400 very pissed level 75 people, all willing to work together to save a taru NPC so they could warp to Jeuno made my night.

Oh yeah, moral of the story, the beastmen a very strong now. Expect a good fight even with 500 people.

P.S. we also had the Trolls and Undead attack back to back about 30 minuets after. They were also good battles, but this time Garuda was prepared.
