Back in August we talked about two rare silithid pets with new models in the Cataclysm beta: Haarka the Ravenous and Soriid the Devourer.
At the time, taming one of these silithids on live and then transferring your character to the beta gave you a boss silithid model akin to Buru the Gorger.
Shortly afterwards, Blizzard restored Haarka and Soriid to the normal silithid appearance and created two new rares with the new appearance: Harakiss the Untameable and Ainamiss the Super-Exotic. Neither could be tamed.
Thankfully, those names were placeholders. Harakiss the Untameable became Harakiss the Infestor and Ainamiss the Super-Exotic became Ainamiss the Hive Queen. Better yet, both silithids can be tamed by Beastmastery hunters!
And there’s more. That silithid-infested cave in the southwest Salt Flats of Thousand Needles now contains a damaged Hive Controller – a brain bug with his brain exposed – that we can tame. And the silithid hive in the south of Un’Goro has a Fledgling Colossus to tame as well.
These additions double the number of silithid looks that are available to us – always a good thing!
