When I made a pass over dungeon pets the other day, to see what changes Patch 2.3 brought, I skipped Dustwallow Marsh because I thought that the pre-existing creatures there were unchanged. But I was wrong — there were some interesting changes to pets in the Marsh.
- A number of creatures had their levels adjusted down a tad, much as in the dungeons. I assume that since they were re-touching the entire zone they decided to go ahead and tighen it up a bit at the same time.
- Oddly, a number of creatures are missing. Nothing too terrible — we didn’t lose any pet appearances — but the following creatures are nowhere to be found. For the moment I am leaving these pets up on the site with a note that they don’t seem to exist anymore.
- Drywallow Vicejaw
- Bloodfen Scytheclaw
- Darkmist Lurker
- Darkfang Spider
- Darkfang Lurker
- Mudrock Tortoise
- Mudrock Burrower
- Mudrock Snapjaw
- Mudrock Borer
- The Drywallow Snapper, the only croc to know Claw (although it loses it when you zone), still exists and still knows Claw. I guess all those bug reports I filed didn’t go anywhere.
- I have no idea why, but the Mottled Drywallow Crocolisk now has caster attributes. (Thanks to Ket Shi for pointing this out to me. I never would have noticed.)
I was unable to track down the three rares in Dustwallow: Dart, Hayoc, and Ripscale. Their levels may have changed slightly, so if you see them let me know what level they are now.
