Last week we talked about some cats that will be changing their appearance come Cataclysm.
Quite a few pets are changing their look, in fact. No looks will be lost in the overall scheme of things. (And we’re up to something like 130 new looks now!)
But just so you’re not surprised about the changes, let’s take a look at the pets that are changing. Today: worms!
Disclaimer: This info comes from the Petopia database of Cataclysm pets. That data 1) could change since it’s from beta and 2) could be wrong since I screw up sometimes.

Before Cataclysm, the Deep Borer was a color-changing worm. In the wild (that is, Maraudon), they came in blue or grey variations. Once they were tamed, they could be either color – randomly choosing one each time you called your pet.
In Cataclysm, though, Deep Borers will be blue worms, period. They will not change color when you call them. If you already have one tamed, it will be blue. Period.
If you’d prefer to keep a grey worm, grab a Dredge Crusher or Dredge Striker from Silithus.
If you are after a color-changing worm after Cataclysm, check out the Dredge Worm of Blackrock Depths. It changes between brown and grey.
I’m excited about this change myself. I’ve always wanted a blue worm and I found it somewhat unfortunate that I could only have one part-time.
Cataclysm adds four new looks for jormungar worms. Three of those new colors ended up on existing jormungar. (The fourth, a gorgeous dark charcoal, is on the newly tameable Rattlebore.)
If you have one of the worms above tamed, you will log in after Cataclysm launches to find yourself with a shiny new worm.
If you’d prefer to keep a purplish jormungar, you have lots of choices. My favorite is the Tundra Crawler of Borean Tundra just because they are so enormous in the wild that they’re hard to miss. (They shrink when tamed, of course.)
