    A couple of months ago I posted about my Paroxy swampy that disappeared from me while I was doing Unbounds in Tram Shame.
    Same sad story. Pet disappears, I page Gm, Gm says sorry but we cant retrieve lost pets. I am out 15 million.

    The update/heads up though is the fact that since then I have twice temporarily lost the Ethy beetle I replaced my Paroxy swampy with. Same area of Tram Shame.
    Both times the ethy beetle just disappeared while I was riding him. What I just realized last night though when it happened the 2nd time is that both times he only reappeared after I dismounted and remounted the stable-bought horse I replaced him with. The first time I had hopped off my freshly bought stable horse maybe an hour or two after I lost the ethy beetle. Last night when I lost my ethy beetle i immediately bought the stable horse and brought him to Shame to try the remount and it worked asap.
    Also, I had re-logged and checked my bank both times when I first lost the ethy beetles with no luck.

    So I just wanted to give a warning/possible solution to players and some hopefully useful info to the Devs.

    Good Luck!

    If I recall correctly one of the problems is that the devs can't replicate this bug. Since you've lost two I suggest send a message to a dev with as much detail as you can remember from both instances.

    I couldn't replicate the bug after an hour either. What I've found, however, is that while their mana is zero (---) when they initially spawn, their intelligence increases from 100 to up to 125 so that their mana becomes 25. When their mana increases to around ~20, they start to use bleed attack (no idea why since bleed attack is not exactly a wrestling special move). I left one with 25 mana in TC1 if anyone wants to test further.

    Nice. If I was you ,I would send it to the devs since you found a way to duplicate it so they may find a fix.

    Good job!
