	ChuCHING! I love this! For starters certain things will shift a mobs
attention and make it attack other people in the group. (ie. bash, rescue,
ect..) this way you can time certain actions to shift the mobs attacks to
the strongest (most hp bundaant) person and then shift when necessary. This
brings to mind my most favorite move in a group. A bash takes 3 rounds (i
think) you get three people in a group. 1 bash, mob no attack, 2 bash mob
no attack, 3 bash mob no attack, <chuckle> 1 is ready to bash again.
<chuckle> i loved to do this ;) a little tacktick advice to help someone

	sorry couldn't resist :)
