Well it happened to my friend, and I'm sure it's a fairly common issue. I'm suggesting that items get saved when the house decays to a special storage system. Now this is sure to make the IDOCers rage, but i would suggest a new system for them. Not to mention the really successful IDOCers are just scripters anyway. Anyways, adding old rares / more items to treasure hunting and expanding treasure hunting would be my suggestion. Making some treasure hunts into a group event.
