Mystery of the Vanishing Packies

    Well the old tale of woe has claimed another victim namely me. I had a character for transfer at Catskills and got a horse packie to load some extra baggage for the trip.

    I decided to park the packie with the character to a relatively safe area at Haven. I logged out and came back in a few minutes .. but the bloody nag was GONE!? Along of course with some choice items.

    I logged out came back nope it was gone. I searched the entire perimeter of haven and chanced upon a packie killing momgbats thought it was her but it wasn't mine and carried no items (prolly looted eh) and then retamed I dunno.

    Paged a GM no show as usual. Placed a bug report no reply what so ever. Maybe there are answers here. Believe me I will never use a packie again in this game.

    That's part of why I prefer blue-beetles... it's hard to loose a packie when you are sitting on it.

    Sorry to hear about the loss.

    You cant log out with a packed packie. Well you can but the pet will stay in game. The pet starts to run to the spot where it thinks you are at coord 0,0 or something you see it of you have uoam up and arent logged on. The packie will not though realize when you get back in game and then stand at the coast as far as it could run towards you (when you where logged out at coords 0,0). So go search the coast nw from haven and it will probably stand there if not some monsters have killed it. Good luck!

    If the packie went wild, then it dropped all the items in its pack to a backpack on the ground. Not sure what would have happened if you had logged out inside a room, if the packie could run off or would stay in the room.

    Aye what they said.... Packies go wild and dump whatever is in their packs to the ground in a nice convenient backpack.... which is awesome for the one who happens by...

    I never ever log out with anything in my packies.. that includes blue beetles if I can help it... If you don't insta log they too can throw you off and wander away....

    Once you've learned or experienced this loss for yourself you don't forget it too quickly... I had a blue beetle go wild once with some things I was moving... that was expensive.
