Damn... guessing it's more common in level 50 areas? I havent seen one before.
bots are everywhere. and about your fantasia, if its like before then each character will get a potion. the only fine print may be if they make PO bonus potions only to one character but that would be odd.
I've never seen bots doing anything but gathering before! Aside from the level 36 Archer (not Bard) bot I had the misfortune of rolling into Brayflox with.
Not sure what the Fantasia question is, but I know that Mog Station Fantasia sales are now single character only. I would expect the bonus Fantasia from HW pre-order/CE (can't remember which anymore, lol) isn't though.
