Mounts disappearing if logged off or away
Hello, just had a general question as a couple friends of mine, as well as myself have noticed that mounts tend to disappear if you logged out without unspawning them. We are not in populated areas and there are no monsters around to kill them, so I'm doubting if it was stolen / killed. Just curious if anyone knows, until then we'll have to unspawn all the time!

it will give you a warning when the Mount will return to nature, im not sure if the timer changed but it used to be around 45m- 1 hour with No interaction i believe they do this to not clutter the server maybe @ubergam3s can explain new mechanics

Yeah, while crafting last night I had a mount nearby, but attached.  After what could have been an hour, I got a msg that it was being attacked.  Nothing/no one was attacking it but it's health was down to 75%.  I tried healing it, but the health would HOT up and then drop back down to 75%.  I think that's the first warning you get that the mount has been idle for too long and the server clean up routine starts eating it.

I wonder if attached mounts shouldn't act like this or at least increase the timer before it happens

no it is meant to make it harder for a thief to hop on it and ride away with it if you are using it to store loot in it.
