New player here, I'm trying to wrap my head around this. NM's are now referred to as Open World Notorious Monster. The have been "capped" to a certain level, meaning you are only able to use skills abilities to that cap when engaged.
and finally this player is clearly not restrained by it? or is he camping it like a botter?
[edit: i thought this was the wrong post by the way the conversation changed lol]
NMs are still just NMs... OWNMs are something Nasomi added to temp replace non-functioning bcnms, and have stayed in the game. Probably because there are still many bcnms that don't work.
OWNMs have loot tables that are mostly matched to a specific bcnm (might be some variation), and they are supposed to lvl cap you upon aggro. So yes, the guy fighting him w/o a lvl cap was up to no good, and started causing trouble in the neighborhood.
