Wraith Spiders: Can they be used as a Changeling form?

PostAuthor: Gumble Tinkertumble » Thu Sep 27, 2012 8:36 am

A couple of quick questions about wraith spiders.

1) I have noticed they don't have the same defences as true undead (level/ability drain, immunities, etc.), so are they really undead?
2) Some look transparent, others don't. Are they solid and see through, or actually insubstantial wraiths as the name suggests?

This relates to what forms are and are not acceptable to changelings by the way, so probably should be common knowledge!

edit: Changed title to clarify the question - PJ

Not a Team question.

So the real question is: can Wraith Spiders be used as a changeling form? Stay tuned. (we're discussing it)

Wraith Spiders are, according to world lore, incorporeal undead and thus not eligible as a changeling form.

That some wraith spiders appear solid is considered a bug. Until we can get this fixed, we hope players continue to use good judgement in selecting proper forms. And in dubious cases like this; ask about it.

I would agree with you, but then, we would both be wrong..
