As a side note, I just checked all the tameable rares to see which one had the longest possible name.

Currently, Blackshell the Impenetrable holds the record at a whopping 27 characters, including spaces. Krethis the Shadowspinner and Slogtusk the Corpse-Eater have the second longest names, at 25 characters.

:D

I have an extended list of recommendations (it contains a lot of non-rare named NPCs that could also retain their names), but Blackshell the Impenetrable still remains the longest name.

Yes, but Ainamiss the Hive Queen is only 23 characters long.

As another aside, I've been trying to search for rares on the PTR (vanilla rares, specifically) with no luck. Have they been unintentionally disabled or something, or am I just unlucky?

Decided to waste some gold. I bought a few Certificate of Ownership, and copied my hunter over with them. Right now on PTR, the certificate does nothing and gets consumed. Hoping that they'll rename to their wild names, because that was a good 3k gold I spent on an insignificant item.

FOR SCIENCE.

Are you saying the Certificate of Ownership isn't working for any pet on the PTR, or just specific ones?

And just checking, you know you have to use the 'rename' function on the pet's portrait after you use the certificate, right? :)

The item can be used, but it does nothing. The item is consumed, and the pet does not get the rename option. It's a bit lame, but it's PTR; can't expect stuff to actually work, right?

And yes, I know.

Yeah, PTRs are for bug checking :) And Ssorry, I just had to check, since it's a common complaint that people think it hasn't worked because they don't realize you still have to use the rename option.

Side thing I noticed while playing on PTR as well; Hardshell Pincher, spawned during the Tambano fight, are not actually rare. They are listed as rare on the site. I had myself parked out near Tambano for some dumb reason on one of my characters, and it attacked me when I copied and logged in.

No cute rare crabs from this fight.

Thanks I'll change it. I think I designated them rare because they only spawn from a rare fight. The problem is, the "rare" NPC that spawns them isn't really rare and so the designation is pretty meaningless these days. If they spawned from a truly rare fight then it would be useful to point that out.
