I've never quite bothered with that mechanic because it never quite mattered to me, but since I got slapped with it on the last reboot, I got to realize that it's really a harsh measure.
Don't get me wrong. I understand the pain of having players hoard stuff and never log in. (some could say that for me since my hours are generally different from the main hours of most of the playerbase)
But 7 days before you are able to get anything? Isn't that a bit harsh? I know that you want to give the rest time to take whatever they've been hoarding (or lost due to circumstances that I will not explain here) but if a character really plans on returning after some absence you practically forbid them from playing the game for seven more days.

Solution? Perhaps make it so that they can no longer hold unique or rare items (similar to the thieves' code) for seven days. That way one can at least put some clothes on rather than have to practically either go "hide in HQ all day" or not log in at all.

Or just get rid of the mechanic altogether. Especially for pet classes that cant effectively play without gearing up their charmies, which means having to hold onto 1-8 extra sets of weapons and armor.

I think updating anything related to the hoarder mechanic is a hard code change.

Can someone better explain how this works for me? Or approximately the amount of time I need logged per month? I have a job that requires me to travel very often. I am in a new city every single month, and only carry my work laptop with me. Do I just accept that the game will be unplayable from the 1st to the 8th of every month?

Running theory seems to be you need to log something like 15-ish hours a month in an inn. (I seem to recall time being boosted while in a regen-flagged room.) AKA log in the inn and go do other [REDACTED], remember to tab over and hit 'who' every 8-10 minutes.

Not sure about non-inn time. I vaguely remember something about time in the wilderness counting /less/. Maybe time in cabal HQ not counting /at all/? Or was that just less too?

I usually aim for closer to 30 just to be safe, personally.

I also think this scales up somehow based on how much stuff you have? Don't quote me on that.

Inn time is the best for getting hours to avoid hoarder flag. And the amount of time you need is based on all your special items.

If you void during your online time I think all the hours for that session do not count.

If you idle in a no gate or recall area those hours do not count.

I would shoot for 15 to 20 hours in an inn at a minimum to make hours for the month and avoid that dreaded H.

If you know you can't yet the hours in you could always junk some of your special gear before the monthly reboot and just get it right back after the reboot.
