    I played for a little under three years and left about 4 months after Malas was settled. I don't remember when that was for sure.

    Here are the questions...

    Hitching Post: I assume this allows one to stable animals at your home. Any other functions? Can I exchange pets from one character to another? I have searched the forums and the item section and have found nothing.

    Housing/Population: It seems that placing a house is outrageously easy compared to the past. Is the availability of housing due to housing rule changes or a major drop in shard population? [BACK THEN - I spent one year traveling the land looking to place a house. The land was littered with small houses and no lots were available. I eventually bought a small house through E-Bay. A year later I bought a medium Ice Island lot for 5 million in game! After Malas opened I was able to place a medium lot myself. NOW - I placed a log cabin the moment my 15 day trial lapsed, a 14 by 17 one week later, and an 18 by 18 five weeks later.]

    Items providing skills: When I left I had a chest full of items with invisibility charges. I horded them because EA was discontinuing the spawn in response to complaints that items should not allow one to perform a skill that another had earned with hard work. Now that jewelry allows the same thing; can we bring back the invisibility items? Please? Yes I know it is a matter of degrees (say +30 skill versus gauranteed invis), but I loved being able to invis my non-mage characters with a macro.

    Hitching post allows you to stable and retrieve your pets at home.... But no you can't get them out on another character....

    The old items still work.... but no I doubt they will be coming back....

    As for the housing... That is a number of issues.... depending on your shard too....

    Some shards have lost a large population.....

    Others have gained... some....

    They went through and dropped a TON of housing on Inactive accounts... which cleared up a bunch of housing space...

    With the lands of Tokuno, Malas and Tram and Fel there is quite a bit of housing around.....

    And sadly yes there are quite a few less folk around.... but hopefully that will change with SA... never know... One can always dream.

    Hitching post just lets you do the normal stabling options...stable and claim

    Housing is easier and easier because of player population dwindling.

    there are still enough of those invisibility items floating around that if you choose to use them you can find them. They don't need them to start dropping again.

    Out of interest, does anyone actually use Invisibility potions? Seems to me they would be far more useful then eg egg bombs, as there shouldn't be a skill wait timer on them...
