So, today I respecced Angoleth to survival (5/13/43), and took her into Sethekk with a friend of mine to tame an Avian Darkhawk – one of the dark brown owls. At the suggestion of other fabulous survival hunters in my raid corps, owls and boars are where its at for the aggro, so we’ll see how she does. I think her name is going to be Taleh, which is (if memory serves me properly) “Darnassian” for ‘Hooty’. You can find all sorts of fun translations if you borrow a friend that doesn’t have your racial language ability and say fun things at them. For instance, “mandalas” is “mongoose”. Anyway – I’m holding off naming her, because I can’t decide if I want to keep the brown owl or attempt a tame on Gutripper (elite, frost trap immune owl in Nagrand), who is silver/black. Also, this will be the first time since my Z’G bat that I’ve had a “flappy” pet.
So far the main difference I’ve noticed is a considerable drop in DPS, but a definite jump in survivability – and my traps stick around for FOREVER it seems.
Another suggestion made to help with this burnout was to change her name, which could definitely go a long way towards alleviating that feeling of nostalgic burnout I get when I log on. Her nickname has always been “An” (pronounced Ahn, not Ann) – so I may see if that’s open on Feathermoon, but for some reason totally coming up with a new name for her is… well… awkward. She’s got a history and a past on the server, and leaving behind her name would be really really hard. I guess that ties into that whole RP thing – as a character, she has a separate existence (to me) from just pixels on a screen. So that makes it hard, since, in a way, she’d have to be a part of that new name.
I guess I’m not sure if I could rename a character I’ve been playing, writing about, planning about, and generally being friends with for 3 years.
