I'm afraid I can't test as my hunter is still only 102, but what was the final verdict on the old black hydras that surround Alcaz Island, on the PTR? Are they completely gone now? I just need to know for sure so I can try to make more waves about the issue. Thanks :)

I'll swing by again, but the waters around the island looked empty to me.

*whispers quietly* It wouldn't be too hard to leave one hiding beneath the dock or hanging out near the lighthouse though. Just sayin'!

EDIT: Did a full lap of the island, just inside the fatigue limits. No hydras. :/

Such a shame.. It's my favorite color, too. Always been a huge fan of the black dragonflight and beasts with a similar color scheme; still salty about the removal of the black proto. :P I hope this guy is added in somewhere as a rare so he doesn't meet the same fate.

FFS really?? :( :cry:

Has anyone tried on a low level toon???? Like something around between 40-80??? Or would that even matter? COME ON!!

I mean. The island can be completely ruined and set for Legion to a level 60. :( I thought all that was phased.

Same. :( I do hope they can get around to adding a new rare or something so that the skin doesn't meet the same fate as the orange ones, but I'm also not holding my breath because I'm sure they have more important things to focus on.

They seem to be phased as I can see them when Im in Dreadmurk Shore but as soon as it changes to Alcaz Island they vanish.

Oh, that's good news! I must have phased too quickly to notice the shift. Awesome catch. :D

I'm in favor of a better solution, though. The only way to obtain these hydras is to already know they're there. New players wouldn't unless they checked Petopia.

Which phase is that in, Deza? Old Theramore? New Theramore? Did that character witness the destruction of Theramore at all?

I've gone back and looked again, but I don't see anything from the Dreadmurk Shore side, just empty water around the island.

Derp probably should've included that, sorry. I talked to Zidormi and had it changed to Old Theramore before heading over there.

Edit: Okay so I went back to Zidormi and changed it to New Theramore. When I went back over to the island they show up when I'm in Dreadmurk Shore, but phase out when I'm in Alcaz Island.

Well, that's just weird.

How can we possibly be seeing different things in the same phase?

Edit: ....or IS it the same phase? I don't seem to be able to get as close to the island before it shifts to Alcaz.

Changed it to Old Theramore again to double check and they still showed up for me.

Very weird indeed...

Just flipped to new Theramore again; nothing there at all.

Flipped back to old Theramore; still only the new content on the island.

I'm wondering if this has something to do with the size of my hitbox as a gnome or if it's something else entirely.

PTR. :)

There's still something weird going on, since Rawr saw them as well....unless that's also from live servers?

No worries! It explains a lot. xD

So the TL;DR is that the hydras are still very much in danger of being completely removed and this IS a problem for Wain to bring up.

This may be completely irrelevant, but I had this problem on live waaaaay back. It was on a character that had done the Theramore scenario which changed the phasing for Alcaz. I could see them from a distance, but couldn't get close enough to tame. So, I had someone who hadn't done it (they were low level) go drag one over to me and I was able to tame it. Like I said, this may not be relevant at all. It's just something I thought of with these hydras.
