Today’s Name That Pet request comes from Tyrmak, an orc hunter with an eye for matching armor.
I’m Tyrmak, an Orc hunter and this evening I tamed myself a wind serpent to fit in with my newly acquired ‘old’ set of Tier 6, namely the 5 pieces from Mount Hyjal and Black Temple.
I got this idea that a red wind serpent that I spotted on my alliance toon while leveling in Blade’s Edge would fit the spot with the completed set! So I rush over to BEM to get one, found a level 67 wind serpent, tamed it and jumped out of joy to have my new pet, one I haven’t tried out before (only ever had cats and ravagers).
But then … I just got this crazy blank in my mind, then it happened: I couldn’t figure out a good name for it! :( Then I remembered you, Mania, one of the hunter community’s pet specialists. So now I ask of you and the fellow hunters out there, please help me name my wind serpent! I’ll scribble down a short story about Tyrmak:
‘Tyrmak was a young orc hunter, one of the very few who chose to take the path of the hunter. He learned the way of the beast, how to train them, how to care for them and now, years later, he’s among the top of the tier, one of the best. He’s had a long trip from the once young, ambitious hunter he was to one everyone looks up to, wanting to be like him. He is growing old and weary but still has the same ambition to beat his competition, to prove himself and others that he is one of the best. He has had numerous pets among his journeys, from wild cats to the alien-like ravagers in Outland, even had a boar for a short amount of time. He is a bit of a believer in superstitions and stuff alike and has been since he was a child, has a very vivid imagination.’
More on what kind of name: since I’m a serious raider and hardcore player to the bone, I’d prefer the name to be serious and to reflect the true nature of the serpent as well as my hunter. And as I said in the background story, Tyrmak is getting rather old but still shows those kiddies who’s boss and definately loves his new serpent. It’s a sure keeper.
It’ll probably level with me in Northrend along with all those new cool pets. But to simplify it from all my ramblings (I tend to do that…), it needs to be serious, even mystical as long as it reflects the true nature of the serpent.
That’s a tall order but then, it’s a tall pet! I’m sure we can come up with some great ideas. Let’s get those suggestions started!
