Just a few little tidbits...
I was out running through cove, looking for daytime lyfes to kill, when I came upon a massive group of Mammoth Arachne. Now, they may be weak for their size, but a horde of them can be intimidating regardless! In the end, however, they were quickly slaughtered... where I went on to find even more Mammoths (and no lyfes) throughout the outer KI cove area. Hrmph!
Also, I managed to come upon yet another AMS!
Chalk up a third solo vanquish for me! This is the first time that one had a chest, too. Whee.
