My first Abyssea pt recently, the role of pulling got passed to me and it raised a few questions in my head. Through most of the pt, mobs would be pulled in 3 or more at a time, or the pt would just attack a nearby mob, but there were often lapses between these pulls, i.e. we'd kill all the mobs then wait a minute-ish til the next lot came in.
After a few hours, the role of pulling got passed to me and I approached it with a style of finding one mob, quick shot with my xbow and immediately grabbing the next, similar to meripo pulling of old, but the mobs being brought in faster. In my opinion, the xp seemed smoother and faster, but then again I was more active with my duties after this point.
My questions are: Are THFs commonly expected to pull Abyssea pts? If they are, what is typically the best approach?
