@Space Cobra

Yeah, I remember him (and recall Justin favors LotRO) and really, Pigs are in more places than Rats in that game if I recall.

I really should try re-log in and try it out again.... at least for the chance to play my Spider! (who is *not* a pig!).

Thats tough.
Boars always seem stronger then spiders for questing mobs in every game i play.
I never seen a boar raid boss though.

I'm with boar though, Stuns/Charges/Gores/Imaples vs Webs n Poison!

Curses! I thought of spider-pig the moment I read the title too.

Although spiders creep me out, and I strongly dislike them, I gave them the vote. They're very interesting creatures to face, largely in part to that factor of creepiness. Plus, you often see spiders webbing up their victims, and I've seen much larger prey than pigs inside those cocoons. That and I've seen some pretty humongous spiders in games, WoW in particular.

Pig.

You guys must not live in areas where spanish hogs have taken over. The things get BIG and dangerous and it requires a big bullet to get through that hide. Arachnids, even giant ones, wouldn't have a chance.

Well, I know Wild Pigs, either escaped domestics or plain wild (Javelina) can be a dangerous nuisance, but we are talking about fantasy here and the spider tends to be more unrelatable/strange than a pig.

Sure, you can squash a spider, even a RL big one easier than a pig, but for the many other human psyches, it tends to create some irrational fear that make for good fantasy/fear fodder in stories.

Giant Spider boss in a Rift dungeon impregnates players. Ugh.

Piggy

Because spiders are yucky and only good as mobs to kill.

Piggies are stout strong cute and furry - perfect to accompany adventurers in-combat and non-combat. Their hearts are brave, and they make good dinner companions, in more ways than one!

:D

I think spiders are winning because people are voting for monsters they can fight, not monsters they have a picnic with.
