Ever have one of those moments where you learn something cool about a game, then don’t use it and forget that it exists? I had one of those moments the other day when asked over Twitter if you can rename your pet shrew.
My answer was no that I didn’t think you could. Luckily @MiddleEarthSim dropped in to remind me of a the /cpet command that I (mainly playing Minstrel and Burglar and typically pet-less) forgot existed!
So the answer is yes, you can rename your pet shrew – or any other pet really – but the pet shrew cannot be targeted so you cannot reach any pet command menu from it’s portrait so this makes it especially useful for your shrew.
The command is:
/cpet rename newpetname
And it really works. Meet MrFuzzFace!
/cpet rename MrFuzzFace
Regular naming restrictions do apply. I just go with my normal operations of allowing Baby Hobbit to name my pets. Give it a try and let me know what you named your pet!
