The routers generally don't assign an IP for itself from the prefix. It just advertises the prefix using SLAAC and uses the link-local address as the gateway.

ok i may have figured it out.  the dhcp client creates an ipv6 pool, from which you can add an address and specify that pool.  not sure if it's dynamic - it's mark is suggesting it's not.  it may simply be there to auto fill as putting ::/64 as an ip with the pool specified auto fills the complete /64 in its place

how would I add an additional Mikrotik to this ipv6 network?  The existing router gets an ipv6 address from Orcon via dhcp, how would another Mikrotik on the LAN (configured as a bridge) join in on the goodness?
