One of the things I love about posting Name That Pet requests is the different types of players and pets we get to see. Sure, there’s a lot of cats and wind serpents — but there are also a lot of other pets, including more crabs that you’d expect.
And today we have a turtle! Seryth, a dwarven hunter from the European (German) realm Azshara, writes:
I named my dwarven Hunter Seryth after a Dragon. For my Pets I always choosed a mythical Name too. For example I named my Cat Bastet after an egyptian Goddess. My Hunter does what a dwarf does. He’s destroying something at any time, Horde Players, Bossmobs, or just a Beer in the Taverne.
Since I was a little Newbie questing in Hillsbrand I wanted to tame a Turtle. Unfortunately it was not such a great Tank as I thought it would be. Now with the upcoming changes in Wrath of the Lich King I think a Turtle Tank Pet can become what it’s supposed to be, so I deciced to finally tame
one again and level it to 70. (Yeah I know I could wait and get the turtle instant to level 65 in the expansion, but no.)
I headed to Hillsbrand and took a look at the green Turtles there, but I didn’t get the feeling that one of them can be my pet. Next I traveled to Tanaris to check the blue ones and I liked them, but my Turtle has to be special order, at least come from a special place. I took the Gryphon to Desolace and entered Mauraudon through the Orange Portal and right before you have to jump from a Waterfall there is a lovely location where dozens of blue Turtles live.
Long text, short request: please help me to find a name for my new Turtle.
Seryth also sent along a picture of the Turtle Paradise where he found his new friend, hidden in the depths of Maraudon.
So what do you think? What’s a good mythical name for this lucky turtle from paradise?
