    Forgot How Much Fun Monstrosity is

    Been gone since 2015, now I am back. Was debating to put this in the "Quality of Life" suggestion thread or create a new one, but I digress.....

    My favorite feature is Monstrosity. tbh, It is the reason I chose XI over XIV. This is the only mmo I know in which you can play as the actual monsters. Would be great if XIV implemented something like this.

    Anyway, such a great feature; what a shame the bestiary was never finished. There are many missing species; like the......

    -Zilant
    -Yztargs
    -Yggdreants
    -Khimaira
    -Hydra
    -Waktza
    -Am I missing any?

    ....I figured it would not be too much trouble to complete the bestiary overtime with consoles out of the picture.

    Maybe.....
    -Allow them in [S] areas, and campaign but scale their strength down while participating maybe?
    -Allow them to zone into besieged during an attack?
    -Maybe Abyssea on a default 120 min timer with all lights for xp purposes since it appears to be dated?
    -Revives (Probably a dead feature...)?
    -Missions & BCNM solo on a timer?

    It had so much potential. Being like Areuhat is fun. Transforming into a monster, or having a creature alter ego. A quest could have been based off of her like the Morpher from Tactics, but I digress.....I know this was probably discussed, or maybe they shutdown updates to Monstrosity, just thought it would not hurt to ask lol.

    As you can probably see, I am a fanatic for this type of stuff. I wish more mmo implemented a feature like this. Back in the day, it would have been great to see new monsters in the update notes, only to know,sometime later, they would be playable.

    Rather than just new monsters to be, I believe that updating the rewards and reward systems would go a lot further to revitalizing the content. It's an amazingly over-complicated content system as a whole, and the rewards just aren't rewarding enough for the vast majority to be willing to spend much time on it.

    It's also dead content. They never even completed the announced updates, much less considering adding actual new stuff.

    By try, I assume they failed lol?

    How "Not Broken" many of the moves were really started to make me think how many of these guys are not BST pets, but I digress....

    What made me make this thread was ....

    Perhaps some were planned, but not finished? I seen this before I came back to the game and was wondering what is the deal with those. This was a long time ago mind you.

    All of the major mob categories were listed from the start, but only a few were selectable. A handful were added over time until updates eventually stopped.
