I took my Miner out to he Mountains surounding Wind in Felucca as I noticed something strange. The Red Solen Infiltrators roaming the mountain passes had two different artworks (see first pic). Red Solens are supposed to be red, but I found two in this mountain area that somehow camouflaged themselfs and had a black appearance. And not only that, but also the body was different. Can't say by heart which model this normally is, have to investigate sometime.

After this dicovery I was curious if there was a difference in strenght and not only appearance. So I went there with a provoker and put up a duel. To my surprise the black dude made short work of his red buddy.
A third trip to the mountains with my Tamer to lore them showed, that the black ones had 90 wrestling, tactics and resist and the red ones only 80. The blacks also hat nearly twice the HP and different resists (didn't write those down)

Strange, isn't it?
Also, is this difference only visible in KR oder are there two different models in 2d too?

Not sure about the models as I only use 2D, but I thought red solens only spawned in Trammel and the black in Felucca?

No they cross over the facets once in a while. Usually can find the blacks in Trammel in the jungles south of Trinsic swamp if they're around. There have been black and red along with the ant lions for quite a while. Didn't know the differences in abilities though until someone lored them.

Not entirely true. The Black solens are native to Felucca and the red Solens to Trammel. But the infiltrators are exactly that, so Red Solen Infiltrators spawn in Felucca and the Black Solen Infiltrators spawn in Trammel, infiltrating the Realm of the other Solen race.

What put me off though, was the fact that some red infiltrators in Fel spawned with the art and the looks of Black Solens but are actually called "Red Solen Infiltrator"...
