Agreed. Though I do hope they make updates for all of the colors and apply them to all existing Silithids. It is rather true to the original, imo.

I don't know. It takes some liberties (which I don't mind. I like the new model). But for sure, I'd like to see all old colors.

The fact that there's a black version, though.. *drool*

I don't know if any of you have read the flirts and jokes of the Allied races that they've datamined, but some of them are absolutely brilliant.

Personal fan of "An allusion! What are you implying?", myself, and the various tentacle jokes the Void Elves have an apparent tendency to make

They are brilliant! Blizz did a great job with them :D

Apparently, VEs do have tentacles in their hair. It doesn't show on Wowhead, but does on mmo-c.

I never even noticed that they have tentacles, that's interesting. I'll have to take a look :)

Nightborne also have runic tattoos and earrings/caps. Also not shown on wowhead (last I checked).

I'm dying to hear "Why does everyone keep asking me to say that? Ughhhhh. Fine. An Illusion. What are you hiding."

A bit of palindromic wisdom:

If that is real, I will be surprised if that makes it into the game. :lol:

Yep. They have no beard styles, but instead, they have earring/jewelery types and runic tattoos like you said.

Also, males have a Nightfallen face option (females too, I hope)

As an aside, this has to be my favorite joke from the allied races so far:
"To be honest, most of the time something was quite right."

He looks like he's got a major pout going on right there. Bless.

Also, I think it's neat that they're going to have some more unique customisation options. I especially like that they'll have the option of a Nightfallen-esque face :) another reason to be super excited about these guys, on top of literally everything else about them, of course :lol:

Kinda sucks and I know there are people that twink at level 60, so anyone with twink hunters might wanna tame them before this patch hits. It'll probably change though.

Just wanted to bring attention to this on the second page as well though, that is a worrisome side effect of the new scaling. :( We should definitely try notify Blizzard about it.

I saw it in a thread there (forget which). I believe there are also some posts on Reddit.

I'm on there with my wee little 15 hunter testing this in various zones to see if I can get more information. If there isn't an official PTR forum post about it, I will end up making one. This needs to change! Ashtail is 16 to my 15 hunter.

OK I did some testing on 3 different characters: a level 15, 20, and 60. The results weren't very consistent among themselves or even with Zorikune's screenshot about. Every rare I saw was at least 1 level above me except for Lightning Paw, who was 1 level below on the two characters I saw him. Lightning Paw may not be the best example, he already had scaling so who knows if that affected his results.

The next test is I am going to kill a rare on one and wait for it to respawn to see if its the same level. May do this a couple times if for no other reason than to rule out a level range for rares to spawn in.

Nice work Quiv! If you do make a forum thread I'll post my support, it would be a shame to lose out on being able to tame most old world rares until you out level the place.

Good work! This reminds me of a bug that existed when they first introduced level scaling in Legion alpha, and things were consistently higher than the leveling player. So hopefully it's just a teething issue.

Well I opened https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20759467639#1.

Hopefully my points made sense. Lets hope this isn't intended! Really glad Zorikune saw it and brought it to our attention.

Alright, so I went and imported my 14 in, saw Ashtail at 16, turned in some quests, leveled up to 15, almost 16, and he was at 17 when I went to him. So after leveling up to 16 and being near him for a half an hour just farming exp from monsters and almost 17, he was still at 17. Now after you watch this video, you won't be too happy about this.
