This can only be a bug, what do you think? Here's my bug report:

I just saw a Silver Elite in the canal in Stormwind. It was called "Sewer Beast." Before I knew it, two guards jumped in and killed it. What's the point of having a Silver Elite in the canals if the guards are killing it? This can only be a bug.

F.Y.I. - I heard the guards complaining about the loot it dropped. Something about "dopey cloth armor."

There's a silver dragon elite in Red Ridge which also gets attacked by some random NPC. First time I saw it I thought it was a player killing him, upon closer inspection I noticed it was NPC. Second time I came across the mob, I tagged and killed him before the NPC could - so working as intended?

According to wowhead it is just a unique hunter pet. They probably added the flavor text for when a guard kills it for the lulz.

Not sure. From what I read in comments on WowHead (after I made my OP), the thing is supposed to spawn at the end of a canal, most often near the palace (which is where I saw it), and it does not move. It has a poor loot table, but it is susceptible to hunter traps and seems to be intended as a prize pet to tame. It supposedly has a great deal of health and is not easy to kill.

So, it may be possible that it's working as intended, or it may be that it spawned too far down the canal. I saw it just about even with the dock with the NPCs that are fishing, including the little boys that talk about a monster that swims in the canals. I never paid much attention to the little boys, but it looks like, once again, what seems like idle chatter is not what it seems.

I type slow. Yeah, it seems that it is just a unique hunter pet. That wasn't flavor text. It was me being funnystupid in my bug report. I just figured that they have to hear a lot of garbage from people complaining that the loot that drops from elites is crap.

Sorry for misleading you. Smiley: blush
