That's a common bug in that area don't worry. As soon as you leave your name will go back to normal.

Hope this helps!

Trust me dude, The Ghost Avalon dungeon is WEIRD as for your name! I believe my name was once Gorge when I was in there. Then another time I think it was...well it was something different. Still, Just know that that's the WEIRDEST dungeon ever as for your name. Your name is still Stephen DeathBlade but it just APPEARS that your name is Amber in the weirdest dungen of Ghost Avalon. Almost EVERYONE that enters that dungeon will see that their name is something different. Don't worry, as soon as you exit that dungeon, your name will go back to normal. Trust me...

It happens to everybody, it's supposed to (I think...) Although actually some of my friends' names stayed the same. Mine changes to Daisy, don't worry it's not a glitch or anything and it will change back when you leave. I think the reason it changes is because you're disguising yourself as Gamma so it makes sense you would change your name. I don't know why it only changes some peoples' names but whatever :P

Same exact thing happened to me. My name changed to Amber in Ghost Avalon. It also changed once while playing tag. It'll revert back when you complete Ghost Avalon. Don't worry.

This is a small bug that has been going on for quite some time. When you finish the dungeon, you will go back to your normal name.

The other day, I took two of my wizards in there (i was running two accounts). A friend was with me. The name of the wizard who had the quest got changed from Caley, to Gigi. My other wizard's name did not change. My friend's wizard also kept her name. Made me wonder if the trigger for this bug is if you have the quest or not.

This is a known bug with Ghost AV

Your name is replaced with your pet's name.

It's something to do with the Gamma transformation, and when you're done with Ghost Av, it should change back to normal.

Actually it's replaced with a pet name. I don't have a pet named daisy.

when I was doing ghost Avalon my name went from Justin firethief to Jeffery. I thought it was kind of funny
