/run PetRename("NAME HERE")


You need the parentheses and the quotations. Name goes inside. It's permanent so choose carefully. You can't rename it. This may get fixed soon and is unpublished but well tested on the mage class forums on the Oboards.

Enjoy!

PS: I named mine Drips.

PSS: I freakin love Frost Mage since 4.0. It's an alt that has gear from the way back when machine in Nax/Uld that I quit playing when my raid guild needed a Ret pally but "Falling in love again...." Frost was always my fav spec back since Vanilla.

Mostly doing PvP atm but feels good to be frosty baby.

Thanks for this! My Water Elemental is now Squirts.

Here's hoping I don't get reported for that one.

If any of you are having problems, try dismissing and resummoning it. I was unable to rename it until I tried that, and it worked.

This might seem like a silly question, but if you spec out of frost, completely, then spec back into it, will the name still remain?

Yes! I actually completely respeced tonight on my mage. I had been using a PvP/PvE hybrid frost while I was deciding if I was hooked on frost again. (I was) So tonight I bought dual spec and made one PVE frost and one with all the PvP goodies like the ice sheild break frost nova and auotcast ice sheild at 50% damage.

Summoned my buddy and he was still Drips.

You are a freaking genius. Thank you very much for that! My little gnome mage, Magicfrog, now has a pet called MagicPuddles. I hope it stays and doesn't get fixed by Blizzard.

Although I do consider myself smarter than the average bear, I did not come up with this. It was another guy on the the mage class forum. I'm just spreading the love becuase I always wanted to name my Water Ele. :)

Edited in link: Just so there's no confusion. Also so we can see if Blizz responds or ignores this.

When I read this I had to try it out so..,
bought dualspec, went with frost, entered the code..
and got a message "Your pet can't be renamed" :(

dismissing and re-summoning fixed it though,
now running around with "Aquarius"

Wanted to name mine "MrSparkle" but the game told me it was reserved :( .

Instead, I settled on "BubbleMan".

My roommate was considering that one this morning, actually. He ended up naming his water elemental "Mistwidget", the same name as his mage, just in case he ever **** someone off so bad in PvP that they create a target macro for him.








He's had it happen before.

My girlfriend just respecced her mage and tried this naming command on her elemental but she got a message saying something like, "Your pet cannot be renamed." So, it looks like this might have been fixed. Big frowny face.

I like a little character flair and anything frost related sounded pathetic and redundant.

She had to do it twice, for some reason, but this did work. Thanks.

Well the how to post was deleted. And there is another post saying QQ **** you Blizz!

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=27397546488&sid=1

So this may be broken now, my hope is people who have it already will be grand fathered in like the hunter ghost wolf pet.
