Yeah, it would seem like the spiderscorp has been COMPLETELY fixed now, size and all, but my essence swapped Hati is still super tiny.

Have yet to check back on the silithid wasps etc.; will report back when I do.

Not entirely fixed yet; it's still a spider in every way other than model and incorrect spellbook. Stable still shows mine as a Spider, beast lore still shows it as a spider, and by all means it IS a spider. Of course, Blizzard will fix it, but there was no reason to do so. We have carrion birds in the bird of prey family and vice versa, so why is this poor spider being bullied?

I think it is because the Carrion Birds and Birds of Prey are similar in many ways and, honestly, I could see them becoming merged someday. Spiders and Scorpions, however, are different enough that they have their own distinct families. A scorpid cannot shoot webs, nor can a spider sting. Besides, there is only one carrion bird (outside of the raven) that is in the Birds of Prey family, which means it could very well just be an oversight.

On-topic: the wasps are still a part of the Silithid family.

I suspect that's because of your cache. If you empty that you might see it as a scorpion.

So that means everything is fixed other than the wasps being marked as silithids, then?

And the vultures listed exotic, unless that has also been fixed.

On EU, they are no longer listed as exotic for me when I beast lore them.

Yep. They'll prolly have the Silithid Wasps fixed soon, too, and the 3 Silithid rares will remain untameable. I guess that was intended in the first place, then, even if I don't really get it.

Just cleared my Cache folder and checked the mobs in Silithus again; the Wasps are still Silithids, my Hati is still tiny, and all other exotic tags have been fixed.

I assume my Hati is big because I zapped it after the changes were made.

I never named my spiderscorp, and when his species changed his default name did not, so I now have a not-as-little brown scorpion who is still called "Spider"

I think a new build was pushed to live. Silithid wasps aren't fixed and the rare elite silithids are still untameable.

It's a weird kind of feeling, simultaneously cheering about all the new BfA additions, while also REEEEEing about no tameable Silithids.

I know it's been a while, and I probably shouldn't bump a nearly month-old thread, but I just checked Silithus tames one last time, and found a couple more interesting discoveries.

For one, the Silithid Spitfires are STILL classified as Silithids, and it doesn't seem like they will be hotfixed any time soon. (BfA may change this with the pet revamp.)

Secondly, the Rock Stalkers make a satisfyingly huge *THUD* sound with their basic attacks, a trait that carries over when tamed. Having three stacks of Dire Frenzy up turns this spider into a bongo-playing champion. :lol: Maybe I'll make a hunter alt with a rhythm-themed stable that includes this spider and that one black Draenor ravager that wont shut up SERIOUSLY EVEN MY CHILDHOOD TOURETTES WERE NOT AS BAD AS YOUR INCESSANTLY SHRILL CHITTERING WHY MUST YOU TORMENT ME LIKE THIS-

*sigh* Anyway, I think this will probably be the last post I make here regarding post-wound Silithus tames until BfA or the next unexpected hotfix. Thanks again for checking out the thread, and my sincerest apologies to those who didn't pick up their tiny spiderscorp Hati in time.

Perhaps one day, the world will be blessed with another tameable pygmy Stonelash Pincer, tucked away in some secret corner of the southern deserts of Kalimdor, in a similar vein to the Lost Emberspit Scorpion.

Who knows what the sands of time will have in store for our stables?
