    Male Weaver?

    So I've killed this spider a couple times on my server and when "IT" succumbs to its wounds it says "IT" has succumbed to "HIS" wounds - Not "HER" wounds


    Aren't all spiders/weavers female?

    every other weaver I kill says "HER" wounds when released

    I am pretty sure I have a pic but will have to look through many pics to find it

    Really, really old spiders, rolled way back in - what was it? Book 10? - or earlier are male. All spiders rolled since are female.

    Really? The gender is based on the origin of the character rather than some present variable?

    AroJay is right. My spider (on German server) is male, too.

    yup thats how it works. I think you had to more or less roll a spider upon release or very close to it to be a male tho. All other rolled spiders since then are female.

    I've tried many times to get this fixed, but it seems they are incapable of doing so.

    They're capable, they just don't care.

    Mine was originally male, however after I received a name change it became a female.

    Re: Male Weaver?

    I rolled my spider the day after the patch when they made this change.

    *Sigh* Wish I was a 9-legged weaver :/

    EDIT: Speaking of odd kill messages though. After killing someone in 1v1 up popped "Leaveittoweaver defeated Whoever" rather then "Your mighty blows topples Whoever". Very strange.



    And no, my hatchlings are not also named Leaveittoweaver

    Re: Male Weaver?

    Weavers were always supposed to have been identified with female pronouns as they were all supposed to be female. However, Turbine incorrectly coded weavers initially to be identified by the incorrect male pronoun.

    they didn't correct the 'bug' until book 11, however any previously created weavers were left coded as is...probably to prevent potential problems that might corrupt the already established toons (but I am just theorizing here).

    Like others have said, weavers created since are 'properly' identified as females.

    I'm glad that I'm one of a few 'male' weavers left that is still active. Most folks who had created a weaver way back when have since left the game or don't play their weavers any more.
