A LIVING Ethereal Hiryu running around, behind it’s master?

    Today, I was passing the Lagtown bank and saw, what looked like, a newbie elf... void of any kind of taming skills or armor, with an Ethereal Hiryu following him. It was even named “an ethereal hiryu”, looking like the same 12 year Vet Statuette.

    He got on and off this creature as if it was a normal tamed pet, yet it looked just like an ethereal. I also couldn’t get a good screen capture as he ran around like a crazy-person, getting off and on it. I would have easily dismissed this as some kind of misc. error if the beast wasn’t named “an ethereal hiryu”. The owner was also just dressed in normal newbie-birth clothes. No armor or jewels I could see. A little hard to explain more. That’s all I know.

    A long time ago... maybe 5 years or more, I was that Tokono dungeon where the Shadow Elementals spawn, with the earth elementals just at the start. One day I saw a wild ethereal horse... but it just stood still, as if stuck trying to follow someone. That could have been 1 error, but this one was totally different.

    Anyone have any idea if this is a new one of the many bugs we have going?

    I have a polar bear like this, it was obtained through a bug, is no longer possible and i suspect is illegal, so i'll keep mine in the stables.

    I should have mentioned it was Atlantic shard, btw.

    If this guy was showing off something bannable... no wonder I couldnt get a good pic. The bank was just too packed with people to get a good pic, like I said... and he was moving fast. Been watching for him since, off and on.

    At least one of these has been sold on the rares forum, to my knowledge.
     
  5. i think the one that was sold in the rares forum is the one that the gms, or ems accidently "on purpose" spawned on an asian shard....far as i know they are legal.

    When the Vet Reward Ethy Reptalon and Hiryu were first introduced to the game, a bug caused the "Ethy" color hue to be accessible for the normal spawn. Several spawned and were tamed on various shards - but they are quite rare. The bug was quickly fixed - but players were allowed to keep them and they are legal.

    It's a legal critter. Used to be owned by a alliance-mate of mine. I believe he sold it recently on the rares forum. It's a regular hiryu, just ethy colored.

    Eak! Even the idea of a “confused” GM taking out something so rare and legal, I would be deathly afraid to own it. More so, I wouldn’t look like a newbie darting around with something you want to show off so badly. hehe. Some of these pro-bank-sitters on Atlantic work very hard so they can sit on blaze dogs in phoenix armor... or extremely rare collections of event clothes, just to show off... unattended. lol. Seems that’s enough to get hassled these days.

    Wonder what the deal with that ethereal horse was, back in the dungeon. Maybe the same glitch? Was around the same time, maybe.

    That's not a newbie elf, that's the player's "Blue" character, it's actually a greater !


    The ethereal horse, I'm not sure, but an ethereal dismounted charger of the fallen happened around that time.

    That wasn't deemed legal though.


    As Tazar (and Mesanna many many months ago) explained, these are legal to own, but extremely few in quantity. I offered him a pretty penny and he declined, :yell:

    I still have mine :)

    I was on Hokuto the morning it happened.
    The same guy tamed a lesser hiryu, two greater hiryus (one of which I bought), two reptalons, and a couple horses.

    I know of only a couple more that got tamed before they took down the shard.

    All of the bugged pets were "rideable and tamable" pets. No ethy dragons, for example.

    And yes, I confirmed they were legal before I bought mine.
