I would go with the idea that rin is either related to tsunade somehow or she's a jinchuriki/potential host...maybe the previous host of the 3 tails? N when she died it ended up in the mists hands eventually, leading obito to mess the hell out of their system. Would kinda make some sense.
So Obito CAN use Mokuton, but he chooses not to, well except if he later on loses that ability somehow.

It can't be because she has a Bijuu, because since she has died, the Bijuu also would have died temporarily, and there would be no reason for trying to get her body.
I was thinking they were hunter nin initially because of the mask but reading back over it I don't thing they are as:
1. they all wore the same specific mask with the bottom triangle black and the rest white when other times we have seen hunter nin masks they have all varied.
2. it does not seem like they are in a situation to be looking for missing nin
I am thinking that they must be just normal chunins and jonins by the fact there are 50+ of them and Kakashi could survive 10 seconds (I am guessing they had a squad who all died but still). Also this is the time of when they were still called the village of the bloody mist so half of the people who try to become ninja's die so they would expect to have fewer ninja but stronger ninja on average.
If they were elite ninja in anyway this would make no sense (ie mists ANBU equivalent). The only other time we have heard about a large mist ninja squad during the wars was when the Kinkaku Force took out the second Hokage who himself had a space time ninjutsu while maybe not as strong as Obito's he did have one and the Kinkaku Force killed him but these guys 1. could't kill Kakashi easily and 2. had no idea how to deal with a guy that looked like he could be using a space time technique. I am guessing the same masks meant they were all the same ranked ninjas and the hidden mist village at the time thought it would be best to kill emotions and identify everyone just by rank by using masks.
...... I do not see how your arguement in any way says why the can't have wanted Kakashi's eye.

More than half the chapter was filled with Obito's "wahwwooooooooooooowhaaawoooooooooohhHHHHHHHHHHHHH HOOOOH" kind of screams and mad usage of wood style - pretty boring and stupid. It could have just went with last's page tech and realisation words - I think it'd be much better if it was like Nagato's case of using his power.But Kishi has to fill the pages with pointless shit.
And Wth,He uses mokuton then,but after that he is never shown using it again?
It could easily be him owning the ninjas with fire or earth style jutsus while just slipping through attacks with his newly found MS,but naaaaaaah,Kishi has to show us that he is the special one with mokuton. Yeah for Shodai's power to be so powerful and famous,it seems his cells and powers can be found by just looking left or right.
Oh and I'm betting that after the flashback is over , he will start using Mokuton...
To get a MS you have to kill someone you love. So Kakashi killed Rin and that set off the MS. It isn't the person (genetically an uchiha) but the sharingan that has the power.. Obito gained MS because Kakshi killed Rin, even though Obito didnt kill her.
Or is it because those two were so close together proximity wise i wonder
Unfortunately, this. And it WILL be awkward.

And not just killing, but desecrating. So now we know!
Or maybe he only has mokuton when he wears the Zetsuit.
Rin always seemed protective of Obitio, this is probably why. He was an incubator for what she wanted.
was an okay chapter. Obito's mukuton jutsu was something serious. Definitely S-Rank. I do beleive the mukuton is a result of the Zetsu suit and thats why we havent seen him use it recently. I'm waiting for swirly zetsu to die, apparently he eventually dies thats why hes not around anymore and Obito keeps his face/mask as a momento/reminder.
As a couple people pointed out, there was an over abundance of Obito screaming in this chapter.
Also, as others have pointed out, lately each chapter answers about as many questions as it creates. Why did Obito have Mazo rods sticking out of him?
It was okay, but lets get back to Saskue and Oro already!
