And on a related note, Midgar had its first level 8 Besieged last night! I'm so happy I was able to catch it! Unfortunately (fortunately?) it was seriously easy. Trolls are always easy, but I expected more of a level 8. We had 600 in the zone which helped a lot (I can't remember the last time I saw more than 400 at a Besieged), but still, it was easier than a level 5 undead attack. We beat it so fast we didn't even get to see the HNM! :/ I was looking forward to taking lots of screenshots of it.
Short post because work is killing me (*cry*) and after being here all day I can't accomplish more on-game than my chocobo digging and any Besiegeds that happen to hit. Blarg.
