Hitching Post question

    I am a returning player to Chessy and I have noticed "hitching posts" on vendors and in houses. They appear to be rechargable. Could anyone enlighten me as to how they are recharged and how often they can be recharged?

    they are pretty much a deco item as they can only be charged 2 times but I guess they may be a good money siphone for some if they are dumb enough to spend the money

    I wouldn't say "dumb", Storm. They're more of a luxury item and status symbol. Crafters on Lake Austin can't keep them, or the ropes to charge them with, in stock on vendors.

    Think of it like a dog-walking service. One doesn't HAVE to hire someone to walk your dog, you can do it yourself. However, spending the money on one carries a statement all its own.

    Besides, a lot of the buyers remember the "bad old days" where someone could kill your pet before you could stable it (even after bonding came in, could still happen for unbonded pets). With the continuing invasions of cities, it can be safer to gate an unbonded pet to a home, and stable it with the post, then take it to a town only to find that there's a Crimson or horde of red NPC spawn there to kill it before you can get it to the stable (pets don't appear stealthed in the gates, like players do).

    There's also the aspect for home defense in Fel.

    "Dumb" may have been a bad choice of words lets just say you can get more bang for your money on other things

    That's definitely true - but my fisher & T-hunter friends and I are loving the extra income from the ropes, the wooden steeds and even farming bridles in Bedlam.

    well I have to admit I have all the parts to make one except the darn steed :-( but I just want it for deco mainly and maybe for the fast entry or exit of the game (you know the times you are pressed for time"!
    I was probably first one on ls to get the pherimones on ls shard but I wont buy the parts I think its fun just to try to collect em (except the dang steed)they do drop in ish off paragons right?
