Apparently Ravenous Crabs are part of the Herbalism quest chain in Nazmir. They spawn during the quest Gathering Mementos.

If there's anyone who has herbalism but hasn't completed that quest yet, I'd love confirmation that the Ravenous Crabs are tameable, but also the colour range they can come in. Wowhead only displays one colour (dark red), but it only ever displays one look per NPC so I don't know if that's the only one.

You can test the colour range by targeting a Ravenous Crab and repeatedly hitting the following macro (set it up on a button first):
Code:
/run local npcid = tonumber(strmatch(UnitGUID("target"),"-(%d*)-%x*$")) print("Target NPC Family: ", UnitCreatureFamily("target"), " ID: ", npcid) ShowUIPanel(DressUpFrame) DressUpModel:SetCreature(npcid)


Unfortunately my hunter is a skinner / lw. If there's nobody with herbalism that can test this I guess I can switch to herbalism on the test realm. It shouldn't be too hard to reach BfA 75 skill, which I believe is the trigger for this quest. (edit: apparently I can't copy characters to the test realm :/ )

The other option is to party with a non-hunter who has Herbalism when they go to do the quest, but I don't think I have any Horde friends with that skill either :/

Thanks :)

I also have a druid flower picker-but she is only 111 atm. Koneko on Nordrassil if you want to give me a poke at some point. I'm usually online from 7-9 pm CDT

Thanks for the offers :) Are either of you up to that particular quest? That's the one you have to be on, apparently.

Hm. I thought I hadn't done that one, but it's saying I have already D:
Sorry about that :C
If I get my other Flower Child to BFA content before you find someone else to help, I'll give you another poke!

Hmm my Druid is only 112, it will be a bit till she hits 120 (I play her off and on each night as I go back to my alli main for rep grinding every few days). I'll check back here once she hits 120 and see if you still need help then.

By happenstance I am an herb picker who hasn't done the quest.

I went out there and ran the macro

Target NPC Family: Crab ID: 137885

The crab is tameable!

That's great! Thanks for checking :)

By repeatedly running the macro on your pet are you able to confirm it only ever appears in red? :)

Clicked the macro like 50 times. Red's the only color available.
