  • Although initially neutral creatures, Ornery Crabs will threaten whenever a player draws near, and after several seconds they will turn aggressive towards anyone still within their range.
  • Threatening ("/threaten" in chat) the crab back will neutralize it back to a Hermit Crab. However, targeting it first before threatening is said to cause the crab to take the threat personally and attack you.
  • The Ornery Crab in Lion's Arch is the only NPC within a city that can be attacked and defeated.
