    Were you in the house when it fell? If I recall correctly this can happen when a house falls.

    Do you recall the type of house? Was it a tower or something with an overhang? Also, were you mounted on the beetle? Sucks even more if you were mounted.

    This sounds like an old bug that has come back. Was your pet inside the house when it fell?

    Recall away, then back again to try and clear cache, might have possibly saved pet.

    This used to happen if you had a pet dismounted INSIDE the house when it fell. Saw that happen quite a few times but dont remember seeing or hearing of one disappearing from outside. So as you say it was a private house you were obviously outside and thats a new one on me.

    There was something going on in the *old world before or shortly after the introduction of Trammel (*can't remember the details) whereby many players lost many pets, mostly while riding through gates, and arriving at a destination without their pet under them or with them. I lost nightmares especially while riding a nightmare which would always vanish when I used gates. I wasn't interested in IDOCs so don't know if they were related to the disappearance of your pets. . Eventually, for me, it became neccessary to make tamers out of characters who were logged off sitting on favorite pets like nightmares to save them from vanishing in stables or anywhere else, and also to keep a few rares from vanishing from bank boxes which were reduced in size. I made extra tamers in order to have extra slots in stables to hold pets, but that probably was after the introduction of A0S and Trammel. Also I had to make tamers out of the characters riding pets without any taming skill in order to be able to use the pets or transfer them to tamers later when Taming was compulsary skill in order to own those elite type pets. LOL What a mess.

    Anyhow, all that aside, - - Outcry, your problem may be related to the Old World bugs still in existance and attached to Felucca programming.

    There have been a LOT of poofed pets lately, something that the devs did recently seems to have brought back a lot of the old ML and SE pet bugs that were supposidly already fixed as well...I've even experienced myself being kicked off my mount while riding (NOT dismounted) and my pet poofing...thankfully it was "saved" and sent to the stables instead of permanantly gone...but if i had crossed a server line that may not have been the case!

    My theory to this is that a lot of the new features are modified from a lot of the old beta/TC stuff they were trying around SE/ML....which makes sense because we actually HAVE seen a lot of these systems before (even if not quite as we have them now) they were just never made permanant...so a lot of code from early SE/ML may have been copied back into the game causing these bugs which were already fixed to re-appear.
