Really funny how these guys have been doing this and no one seems to notice or do anything about it. Was doing trials the other day and out claimed one only to find it followed you around until the mob was dead despawned or got out of range.

If your interested in seeing them in action they are in these locations.

Eyrih (farms poison leechs with a bot near Bibkini Bay on the 1st beach)
Tihkyo (farms same stuff as Eyrih but near Onzozo beach)
Sneeri (Farms Dhalmal near Onzozo)

All are on 24/7 and easy to watch for a giggle. The galka even got pulled into onzozo and attacked high level mobs killing himself. It's very funny to watch. What people do is out claim them just before they attack then they follow where ever.

Fixed typo and a grammar issue.

Update:
As of Nov 30 12est they disappeared, could be the update.

I guess a typo, so I'll fix it.

Hi all,
My partner and I found this thread very interesting as we had recently been duoing here while levelling up our sub-jobs using a page from the Field Manual.
We found the Galka you mention [same name] on one beach, on another it was an Elvaan [Grier or something similar] but what most concerned us was their behaviour if you went after one of their targets.[I should add when we got to one of the beaches they were using and saw that they were after leech we sent them a tell informing them that we were doing a page, required only x number of leech and that we would then be gone, was that ok with them ? Silence was the loud reply . . .]
On the days we were there their targets were leech, woe betide if we pulled one, these desperados would come up to us and deliberately stand and move menacingly between us which really freaked my partner !
Such behaviour I found bullish and really against the spirit of FFXI conduct, so much so that I contacted a GM who duly turned-up and watched as they did their bully routine. He said that he would make a note, he also mentioned that it appeared that they were using 'bot' type behaviour, would check their logs and see what could be done.
I have not been back to the beaches since, this was about the end of January so would love to hear if their behaviur has been tempered or better they have been booted ?
Thanks !
Jon [Jeubond- Unicorn]
