#14 – Investigation: Boss Patrols (In progress)

Hello, everyone. I am starting an investigation on boss patrols, such as the Big Foot Patrol and the Horntail Patrol.  I’ve recently gotten interested in them, so I am currently gathering information on boss patrols.  Currently, I will compile all information I have learned below.

(For those I quote, I will use users’ BasilMarket (or BM) usernames.)

  • Scania has a Horntail Patrol.
  • Broa has a Big Foot Police which disconnects you and kill steals your Big Foot.
  • Demethus may have one.  I’ve heard their guild is called “NubBusters.”
  • Mardia appears to have one, but it appears that their leader is leaving, and is therefore disbanding the guild (unless he passes it on to another member).  I’ve heard they aren’t so much of a problem there.  I’m also hearing another rumor that another one (or one) is rising.  I’ve heard their guild is iBigFoot.
  • Yellonde appears to have one.  According to neverfo1 here, they all have Deputy Stars equipped, and can actually damage players.  Can someone confirm this?
  • Kradia, I’ve heard, has none.
  • According to |xxShannonxx| here on BasilMarket, Mardia’s Big Foot patrol is moving to Bera.
  • According to AranBoy1999 here on BasilMarket, the Bera bigfoot patrols are insignificant.

Update: 9/5/2010:

  • Bellocan appears to have two guilds: Regulate and MobSquad.  There is a comment page on this BM thread that provides info.
  • Of the two Bellocan guilds, MobSquad hacks, and Regulate doesn’t (this may not be true).
  • According to Heftige here on Basil, Mardia’s Bigfoot patrol lasted for only about a week, then was disbanded due to failing to overpower others.
