    Ok I pretty much quit farming in Ilshenar when the changed the bags of sending and how they worked.

    Now back them I remember being able to summon my pet one time but not being able to summon it once my pet arrived in Ilshenar...

    So I would stealth to the bottom of random Dungeons and would summon my pet or could summon it to spirituality if there was a fight going on...

    Did they change it somewhere because now I can not summon a pet into Ilshenar.

    It's been changed relatively recently so you can't use pet summon balls in Ilshenar. But we've got better pet AI these days to enable us to lead a pet past spawn which helps a lot. That's how I go to most hunts these days.

    Some folks probably use the autostable feature to work around the pet ball fix, but for long runs I usually just use a mount pet and hide-run-hide my way through any really dicey areas. Adds a bit of excitement to the journey :D

    Cant you just leave it near a gate, and relog real quick? My tamer is my least used char, but I remember doing that before.

    The way I recall it working was that the pet had to be out of the stable in order to summon it to Ilsh. Haven't tried in quite a while though, so there could have been changes I missed.
     
  5. You could always leave it somewhere, gate to ilsh, get to where you watn to go then log out then in.

    Your pet will be standing happily by your side :)

    That is the way it worked, not sure if that has changed.

    Also, didn't they make it so you cannot summon your pet while hidden?

    Summoning a pet now works kinda like casting a spell (you wave your arms about and such), so I assume it reveals you.

    I've noticed I can't summon pets into areas such as the Citadel. Don't know if that used to work.

    If you try using the auto-stable thing to call it, it just stays in stable. If you try the ball, you're specifically told it's not gonna happen.
