Strange oddity tonight, gated from my vendor house to minoc bank. Gate opens I go in, pet (blue beetle) for some reason now doesn't follow through the gate (had followed behind me at vendor house for some time, pet is bonded, have had him for prob 3 yrs anyways). I picked up what I needed at the bank (approx 10 sec) go back to vendor house, figured for some reason he might of been there standing, No Pet. Check followers & it reads "0/5" followers, Ok wtf. Log in & out, nadda (didn't think it would help since he had crap on him) go to stable for fun. Nope not there... Ok now what, so I walk from luna stables through the bank to the vendor house, remember still have "0/5" followers. Walk through bank, walk out 1st bank doors, see green words, AWWW, my bug, Look at followers STILL "0/5" followers, ok this is odd, walk to bug since he was caught in a corner to vendor area's & now the bug starts to follow me just like before. Walk around for a couple of min's & still bug right tight behind me as always following my every move & still showing "0/5" followers, Bug takes all commands, & yet still showing "0/5" followers..... Jump on Bug!! Bingo now shows "3/5" followers.... So everyone if you Loose your pet DO NOT BELIEVE THAT FOLLOWERS #'s.. This here proves something is severely goofed in the games reading whats what. I wish I would of had him linked to a pet ball to try. Just go back to where you think you lost the pet & look hard, for I bet like mine, he's there somewhere either stuck, or just standing around. For some reason when you go though the gate & pet doesn't follow it takes the followers #'s and screws them up somehow. My pet was still Wonderfully happy, bonded & followed me when I got back close to it. Never since pet bonding has started have I lost a pet, & I still had the pet on the same server, but showed "0/5" followers.
