Unlike changing your character's name, there's a way to change your pet's name within "World of Warcraft." With the Certificate of Ownership, hunters can rename a pet with the click of a mouse. You need at least 200 Inscription to craft this item.
Gather the required components. A single crafted stack of Certificates of Ownership requires one Light Parchment and two Celestial Ink. As long as you have 200 Inscription, you can make this ink using a pair of Violet Pigments, available from plants like Purple Lotus and Firebloom.
Purchase the recipe from any Inscription trainer. In your race's hometown, you can speak to the Inscription trainer and purchase the recipes for Celestial Ink and Certificate of Ownership.
Craft two units of Celestial Ink. Two Violet Pigments yield a single unit of ink.
Purchase Light Parchment from any of several vendors throughout the world. This is a common crafting good that never runs out at the vendor. You can purchase it in areas like Stormwind City, Dalaran, the Borean Tundra or Westfall.
Craft the Certificate of Ownership recipe. The recipe yields a single certificate, leaving no profit to be made in your journey.
Right-click the item to use it like any other, selecting a new name for your pet. The change should take effect immediately, but you may need to log out and log in again to see the new name.
Tips & Warnings
- If you don't have the Inscription profession, you can find these certificates on the Auction House; they're not bound.
- You'll get the most crafting experience if you have 200 Inscription. You won't gain anything once you hit 215, however.
- Plants that yield pigment are in areas meant for levels 40 through 50.
- You can't change your pet's name if you're a warlock.
