Behind the Scenes


The nether ray is a beast native to Outland. They can be domesticated and used as flying mounts.

OverviewEdit

It has a body much like a stingray's (thus the name) with a long tail and two feathery plumes. It has crystalline growths and stripes running down its body, and all types are brightly colored. While not especially big as a whole, at least one titanic specimen has been allegedly spotted by individuals in Zangarmarsh, dubbing it "Count" Ungula. It is possible to mistake a nether ray for a spore bat if one is not looking closely. They prefer to eat meat and fungi.

Nether rays have a unique way of achieving flight; their "wings" being tiny in comparison to other flying animals. They use the special gland on their underside to excrete spores that produce lighter-than-air gas. This gas produces a pocket under the ray that keeps it afloat, and the ray uses its "wings" to keep the gas pocket under its body. To achieve propulsion, the ray uses its "wings" to squeeze the gas towards its tails, where it streams the gas with its two feather-like tails, and undulates its third paddle-like tail through the stream, giving the nether ray added lift and propulsion. Since the nether ray uses gas to counteract gravity instead of "fighting" against it using lift, it is able to perform just as well as other flying animals, despite its small size.
