Pet command bug!?

    I have 2 nice bake kitsunes that I have named Kitsune no atae and Mino no kitsune.

    I have noticed a bug with giving pets individual commands. The correct way to give an individual command is "pets name followed by kill, follow, come, etc."

    In order to name the pets with spaces in the name after the tame instead of backspacing and deleting all the characters and putting new ones I scrolled cursor over and just deleted and replaced the default names characters maticulously.

    It appears I cant give them commands individually. The first letter in both name is caps and all other characters in their names are lowercase.

    So when I say "Kitsune no atae stay" or "Mino no kitsune kill" nothing happens even when made up as a macro or jus typed out regularly.

    On the other hand if I tame a creature and rename "Fred;" then it works.
    I'm just wondering what the deal is.

    These names I have given these pets are very special to me. They relate to the japanese lore that surrounds these mysterious creatures (look it up if you like lore type stuff) and I don't want to change their names.

    I could get rid of the spaces but that would look real silly but thats jus me...

    Should I report this as a bug!? Maybe its jus sumin they overlooked!? Any suggestions!?

    Thanks and after this post im doin a search to make sure this hasn't already been brought up...

    BTW I play on siege with a bard tamer and seeing as how over 50% of my skills are useless against other players I would benifit greatly from being able to individually tell them stuffs...

    It isn't a bug. You cannot give text commands to pets with spaces in their names.

    As Trinsie said, you cannot give commands to pets with spaces in their name, other than the usual "all kill", "all stay", etc. I too find it somewhat disappointing that this is the case.
  4. the only way to give them individual commands is to click on them.

    Your choice is to either re-name them with single word names or command them through their context menus :(
