    I wanted to warn every collector out there is a Exploit out there that allow to rename pet names with brackets [ ].
    As you may know a dragon called "A Dragon [Orc Faction]" was delivered at an event on Europa shard. It is supposed to be (at least as far as I know) a unique labelling making it a very valuable pet.
    Anyways the other day a guy of which I wont make name offered it to me for 15mils.
    I bought it as I'm collecting euro EM rares for a museum on Europa.
    Only later I was told by the same guy on ICQ that he had scammed me using this exploit...
    Watch out. DONT BUY IT.

    i believe there was a similar problem when KR came out, and you could rename pets in a manner not possible in the legacy 2d client

    There is a way in which I am certain if I divulge it here I will be warned on stratics for the third time this week, to rename a pet with as many spaces/special characters/etc. as you would like.
