So Patch 7.3.5 is upon us, and with it, the wound in Silithus has opened the way for a handful of new tameable pets! These new tameable beasts were mentioned briefly in an article on Wowhead, but were never actually elaborated on... until now!

First up, the Fleshripper Vulture. It seems like a normal Carrion Bird at first...

Image

...until you realize that it's flagged as an Exotic pet!

Image

Bit of a bummer, since you won't be able to call it while in Marksman or Survival spec, but it's still pretty interesting.

Next up, the Rock Stalker. This one seems pretty normal as well, but what sets it apart is that it uses the much more silent "vanilla" spider vocals, as opposed to the shrill vocals used by Maexxna and other spiders that share the same model. Currently, it shares this quirk with the Darkmist Widow, a rare spawn in Dustwallow Marsh.

Image

Next, the Stonelash Pincer. This guy's probably the standout tame of the entire zone. For one, he's currently flagged as a Spider instead of a Scorpid, meaning he has Web Spray instead of Deadly Sting. Plus, he's SUPER tiny!

Image

It even carries over to Hati via Essence Swapper!

Image

From here, I moved onto the western edge of the zone to check out the new Silithids. And I'm not talking about a combination of Silithids and Wasps! In fact, even the Wasps are classified as Silithids! The weirdest part is that none of these Silithids are flagged as Exotic. Don't get too excited, however, as none of them can be called while in Marksman or Survival spec.

The Silithid Spitfires come in two colors: Brown and bronze, the latter shared by Zora in pre-wound Silithus. As stated, they're classified as Silithids, not Wasps, meaning they have access to Tendon Rip.

Image

The Silithid Drones don't seem to have any special quirks, unfortunately.

Image

And lastly, the Silithid Sentinels. Aside from their new, unique skin, they also share their vocals with "boss" Wasp pets like Princess Huhuran and Ayamiss the Hunter, making them quite noisy. They do seem to use the "normal" Silithid death sound, however.

Image

And that's all I've been able to dig up so far! You can expect most of these to be fixed/nerfed within the coming weeks, so enjoy the madness while you can!

But until then, see you next tame!

Yeah, seems nobody had time to go back and fix the families of these. They were reported months ago, too :/

I feel like 7.3.5 got rushed at the end, which is what caused all the issues like transmog disappearing from people, raid bosses no longer being soloable, etc.

I wish the purple silithid model becomes tameable, it's gorgeous. Only lavender pet in game.

Yeah, sadly 7.3.5 feels not so well organised towards the end. And level scaling is starting to remind me of the class recode at the start of Legion, with similar themes of “undertake a massive, game-wide recode of something and run out of time to do it right, before launch”.

Hopefully they’ll fix it, but if the class recode is any kind of predictor then scaling issues could last well into BfA. But let’s hope they’re much easier to fix and somebody in the relevant team is really motivated.

I honestly can't believe that there wasn't time for them to quickly just change a few values on these beasts.

I want that spider scorpid so bad, but my Hunter has not been able to get an Argus kill. Every pug group is, quite frankly, full of idiots. I'll be mad if it's another glitch pet that I miss out on, like the Grimtotem Spirit Guide or Spirit of Koosu, especially since it's other players' fault that I can't get them in this case.

It will probably get fixed sooner or later, including for those already tamed. It is obviously not intentional.

Even if you do, they will probably fix it for all tamed scorpids. They did that to the Mana Saber that was listed as a cat a few months ago (even changed the model, I believe).

Still, being able to have fun with unintended pets is something people enjoy; I know I do. I have no shame, and gladly admit to using exploits for silly pets like the Dog Mana Saber from a while back. It's a matter of enjoying broken things, no matter how long they last.

That's all well and good, and if that is something you enjoy, then good for you. I'm just stating that these could be fixed at anytime and people should keep that in mind so that they don't gey overly attached to them. I'm sure none of us here want a repeat of the fallout that happened with the Dreamgrove Puppy.

Eep! That is hilarious! (Also depressing because...well, quality control should be a thing, but hey, it's just a tiny little start-up company with such a small staff and budget that we can't be too critical of, after all, right?) I actually really hope the unique vocals aren't fixed though.

I'll have to go collect a tiny spiderscorp while I can. The only way it could be better is if the vulture was flagged as a spider or something.

Thanks for the photojournal. It was fun.

Definitely agree with all that! But since both the scorpid and the spider are common models, I’m not too worried. It’ll be fun while it lasts, and after that, hopefully he at least stays small ^_^

Today's patch that fixed scaling and such did not fix these pets. Go get them spiderscorps if you haven't, whoever may be reading!

As mentioned, they'll probably fix it like the way they fixed The Beast... I missed his icon so bad lol
Might have to go back and get his Son for old times sake.

So it would seem that today's maintenance has fixed the spiderscorps...

And now they're just scorps. They're still tiny though! :D Also, their stable icon is still the Spider icon for whatever reason.

All other tames in the zone have remained unchanged. The Wasps are still flagged as Silithids, the Carrion Birds are still flagged as exotic, and the three rare Silithids are still untameable.

Alright, thanks for the heads-up, Slapperfish.

Good news! I read the unfortunate yet expected fate of Spiderscorp, so I logged in to check mine. Beast lore shows it as a spider still. Hope you all got your skittering buddy when you could!

EDIT: Scratch that, spiderscorp is dead. It doesn't have Web Spray, but it has Deadly Venom. Beast Lore, why are you such a liar!
