    Default New arcane dragon pet is not a dragon??

    It sure looks like a dragon, feels like a dragon, moves like a dragon. Even STS in their screenshot called it arcanite dragon.
    BUT the name??? Yinshe... in chinese, it means Silver SNAKE! (银蛇)
    How come its cousin Zhulong got to be named Marble-red Dragon (珠龙) whereas this boi is a snek??
    STS please change it, its probably bugging all of us chinese players XDDD

    Yes. Yinshe has a passive that regenerates Mana. I donít think it was added anywhere in the description. Iíll get that fixed when I can.

    >.< ima history nerd, I canít allow non technicality on this one...

    Quetzalcoatl is one god (w a twin sibling), not a wyvern, drake, wyrm, snake, or dragon.
    That pic should have said ďfeathered serpent ď so it didnít refer to one of several gods (Tohil, Gukumatz, or Kukulcan), who all are represented that way visually.
    Also, I could pick apart the word fae, but wonít here
    Had to, sorry
    XD

    Yes, you are right. I also noticed they included a god but i thought it was an example of wyrm type, since its most famous of them (no wings, no legs. Just feathers)

    Exactly bro long(龙) means dragon, she(蛇)means snake, and in chinese culture snake is never a 吉祥物 meaning its not something that would give us good luck. Dragon would however do so, dragon represents power and is said to bring good luck as well. Hence i'd think introducing a "snake" during lunar event would be hella weird. Plus all the previous dragon pets are all named properly e.g shenlong(神龙)zhulong(珠龙)fuzanglong (dunno what it translates to mandarin but i'd say its 俯藏龙)STS pls do a bit of research next time even tho chinese community is small

    It is certainly dragon looking but the name doesnít reflect to its look.
    Even yinjiao 银蛟would be much more appropriate

    If the snake can fly then it is a dragon.

    Basically all chinese pinyin can become something else completely. And thats only mandarin. Adding in dialects and everything is more chaos.

    My take on this topic. This is an example of cultural appropriation. Such that you inaccurately portray another culture and their customs, not to mention that Sts is benefiting from this event.

    They should've done more research about it, furthermore, unsure why they haven't address the issue yet despite Cinco had already left a comment here?
