Some enemies treated as both mobs and bosses?

Oct 27, 2009
My question is why are some enemies as strong as bosses and we only face one per battle yet we have to collect many items from them? The specific mob/bosses I'm talking about are the bumbaloons and sting tails. Could they either be weakened to normal mob strength and let us fight more than one at once or a collect one with a high drop rate?

The bumbaloon quest has gone through a lot of change, trust me. At the moment, it's annoying, but how long did it take you? an hour, maybe two? right, well, back before they changed it to bumbaloons (it used to be white buffalloons), the average time for completion was four to six hours. it took me about six. I agree that it still needs tweaking, but it's much better than it was.
