Man, @#%^ that, I don't care how celebratory it is, I want to kick that stupid thing's ass based on its name alone D:
Actually you know what, this brings up a good point (to me, maybe not to you guys...)
I've always argued with friends that peiste mobs resemble snakes, and all of them have disagreed with me saying that they are very clearly lizards (which they are, at least in terms of in-game family, but whatever). The fact that SE is using peistes to represent the Year of the Snake ought to garner me some significant points toward my argument >_> Too bad most of these said friends aren't playing atm...
