Where is it said that they're intelligent? I've never seen any evidence of this in-game.

The hydra Hetaera call herself ²ruler of the ocean". It maybe a hint, why they could be intelligent. Some Hydras are also in the Abyssal Council aside with the Fire Naga. Thats another hint.

Oh yea, thanks. :)

I've personally never heard the word "hydra" being used to describe a person's characters. If it's common, there should probably be a disambiguation page. If it's just one guild's slang, then it should be removed.

That House of Valor reference was the only one I've seen to a hydra myself. If it's local slang, it strikes me as useful; many people have that character setup.

I wanted a disambiguation page, too, but I saw no help for this under Editing Help. Any advice?

I've removed the broken link, and replaced that section with a link to Dual box. I've never heard the term myself, but Wikipedia lists it as a synonym to dual boxing.--Aeleas 21:18, 20 March 2006 (EST)

Beast or Uncategorized Creature Edit

Hmm, most (if not all) of the hydras in-game seem to be uncategorized creatures, not beasts. Aku'mai, Gahz'rilla, Gesharahan, the Strashaz, Mystlash, and Thessala hydras are all uncategorized creatures. --Beep 18:49, 11 December 2006 (EST)

Trigore the Lasher is uncategorized too. Are there any beast hydras? --Beep 18:52, 11 December 2006 (EST)
All the hydras in Azshara are categorized as beasts. --Varghedin 00:59, 18 December 2006 (CET)
No, they aren't. Great Wavethrasher, Hetaera, Wavethrasher and Young Wavethrasher are all uncategorized. --Beep 19:09, 17 December 2006 (EST)
You were right, I was wrong. They were uncategorized, but got changed. As far I can tell from various discussions on Thottbot, etc, the change came during patch 2.01. --Beep2 15:38, 1 January 2007 (EST)
Yeah, I noticed that all the Bloodpetals in Un'Goro are now elementals too, whereas they were uncategorized before. I wonder if they were thorough enough to change all the hydras too, or if they just did the Azshara ones. --Varghedin 21:51, 1 January 2007 (CET)

Blood petals have been categorized as elementals since patch 1.11, or 1.12 I think.Baggins 15:53, 1 January 2007 (EST)

Ah, in that case the info on wowwiki was just horribly outdated :P --Varghedin 21:54, 1 January 2007 (CET)


Is the plural form Hydras or Hydrae? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 06:07, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
