We really need a check for pets that runs perhaps once every minute or so for disconnected owners. Currently if you log off or your client crashes, or you disconnect for some reason, your pet will auto-stable, which is good. However, if the server crashes, and you have a pet in game, your character will not come back to the game, but your pet will stay in game, and if you do not log in within a fairly short time, your pet will go wild. As a tamer I have put, literally, hundreds of hours into building my stable. Last night, after I went to bed, Atlantic apparently crashed. I logged into the game this morning to find my rune beetle wild next to me in the middle of nowhere. I was extremely lucky. I was able to retame the beetle, feed it, and stable it. i would have been very upset to lose that beetle. I have had it for over a year, and it was the best pvp rune beetle I had found over hundreds of hours of farming. I don't know whether my "disconnected owner" check is the solution. It probably would be, and it seems to me that it would be a simple subroutine that shouldn't be resource intensive, but perhaps the devs could come up with a better solution. Whatever it is, this situation really needs to be fixed. "Real" tamers put as much effort into their "stables" as any other player does into their "gear", or "rares", or whatever it is that happens to be their "thing". A truly rare pet can potentially be worth billions. That they could possibly be lost due to something as simple as a server crash, through absolutely no fault of the owner, is unacceptable.
