It's the hornstrider one of the first NPCs you meet in Ohn'ahra Plains mentions that killed his father and wounded him. It has a name, so it'll likely retain after taming if it is tameable.

He just randomly showed up while I was doing the quest killing Hornstriders, one shot me (he was level 70) and ran off. No idea if he's flagged tameable cause it was very random. Lmao.
Yes, he is a lvl 70 elite that patrols around the center of the zone. He is flagged as tameable. I reported it for over on Twitter a couple of days ago :)

Also, I did find a tamable Bakar that uses three of the spiked variants. I posted a picture of it on Twitter. :)
I don't use Twitter, so I don't get the twitter scoop from y'all lol.

Yes, I noticed that one as well and recorded it, it just hasn't yet been posted on the website :)
I thought I grabbed everything with a tame flag. I must have missed something.

Fixed! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It was not only that hippo, but a bunch of other previously-unused hippo colours and also a couple of hermit crabs.

I don't know how they were missed, as the procedure was mostly automated and it updated all the rest :/

Has anyone happened to find these guys in-game or a datamined model? I'm very intrigued as the BFA Ankylodons were really disappointing without the hammer tail to me! I'm pretty sure I've looked through as many datamined models as possible but I have yet to see it anywhere.

Edit: The thought just occurred to me that these could also be something different entirely as there was just a single still from the trailer to go on, if so, what model did it end up being?

Is Otiosen is tamable in Dragonflight Alpha? If the new salamanders can be grouped as toads, Otiosen is a good candidate for the Toad group too!

We don’t know. Zeroth Morris can’t be accessed right now. That said, he most likely isn’t since they haven’t touched npcs from past xpacs.

I decided to use my new classification code to sort all the hermit crabs by shell colour.

During the process, I decided to add all the other unused combos. As there are 168 possible combinations, I'd originally decided not to add them all, but since unused colours are hidden by default it's not so bad, and it allows anyone interested to look for fun, unused looks.

To see them, go to https://www.wow-petopia.com/family.php? ... ermitcrabs and scroll down to the Unused Looks section and click on it to reveal them.

Some of my faves:

The scrollbar for that page is absolutely menacing. I love it. There are a lot of fun combinations in there, but this one is by far my favorite;


Imagine if the devs implemented random textures for a single enemy. One enemy that could use EVERY possible texture combination given to a model. Such a monumental task of checking every color combination would be a nightmare, and I could only imagine the headache it would cause to document, but what a fun nightmare that would be. That one horse in Boralus was a good start, but we need to go deeper. One hermit, every texture. Do it, Blizzard!

We need some sort of crab spawn pit which randomises all the crabs. FIND THE SHINY CRYSTAL CRAB 1/100 spawn chance.

Well, biologically speaking, hermit crab shells aren't part of the crab and they can switch shells easily, so maybe the designers could add a way of obtaining other shell colours to customise your hermit crab. Even offer new ones in the future! Custom ones with guild monograms or faction details!

I'm still waiting for custom tabards detached from stupid guild logos.
Can you imagine though, people using crabs to advertise shit.

"Join our guild! We've got crabs!"

...Yeah, that might not be the best form of advertising. Would be nice to customize hermit crabs though. Or, take a normal crab and use a toy shell to give them one of many looks, kind of like an advanced version of the crab knife toy. After all, WoW's hermit crabs are just normal crabs with hats, rather than adorable bugs with tiny claws and a fleshy tail they tuck into an evicted home.

I could imagine hunters also being able to customize their pets to different looks of the same model, like cervid horns and body color, armor and armor color, which would of created a huge amount of Looks, but it’s too much fun then people would play more hunters
