"She sits there above the spider web while her spider minions do her bidding."YES, someone else who thinks she's a female. Lol sorry, its a personal thing. My friend and I were arguing whether Beth'tilac is male of female. I said female because of the name and the fact that its she's a widow. he said Beth'tilac is a guy just cuz there are so few female bosses in WoW. Personally I think most of the bosses its hard to tell the gender. Anyway...the fight looks good. Just wish I was high enough to get into it.

to your friends: as a rule, spider = female.-High Priestess Mar'li, the spider boss from the original ZG-Grand Widow Faerlina, second boss in the Arachnid quarter of Naxx-Maexxna, the final boss in the Arachnid quarter and the only other actual spider raid boss besides Beth'tilacThe closest thing to a male spider boss in a raid is that miniboss in Karazhan. Nerubians and Qiraji are not spiders. Then there's Hadronox in AN, which is a 5-man.

The encounter general designates her as the Broodmother of the Cinderweb spiders.So you win. :)

Well... it's described as a brood-mother type spider hatching eggs, so it would be weird if it were a male. And in spiders particularly, the infamous Black Widow spiders sort of inspire this kind of "giant spider is a mate-eating female spider" sort of theme. I don't think there's any sexist bias here.

Teaches me to reply to someone when very tired: I called it the encounter general when I meant encounter journal. Wonderful. :|

Most female spiders are much, much larger than their male counterparts IRL. It makes sense then that most of the big, bad spiders we fight would be female then.

Don't forget Shelob.

I always thought Hadronox in Azjol-Nerub was a female as well..
