Mobs will now save across reboots if they are below their max hp and if
they are flagged to be saved. If they are saved, they will return with
whatever spells or items they were carrying when they come back. Note that
a mob is not saved just because it isn't in its home location.

So with this change, I've been meaning to bring up something but just didn't find a good time to bring it up since it has to do with reboot too.

You know in the past, save vs spell was all that existed. You slap on like -20 save vs spells and cool you're done. Now you have mal mental and afflictive, many diff types of weapons etc etc.

Usually reboots comes in countdowns, so if you are fighting a mage class and you have 10 rares in your inventory because you switched them out for saves, you have that 5 hours to don your rares back on to prevent that storm coming.

What if the realms reboots instantly or crash? No shit, you'll lose everything in your inventory. Just wondering if there's any solution to this? I'm not a coder, so I've no idea what can be or cannot be done....

Just something to keep in mind, its going to mess with levelling mob repops a tad. Lets say there's 10 butlers and 1 is hurt. It'll save the butler that was hurt before the reboot. After the reboot, it'll reload the hurt butler, and then it'l repop the area. Its possible that mobs can double up because it'll repop whatever. This is avoidable if the mobs are built uniquely but usually builders re-use. The same thing happens if you kill everything except one mob in an area and leave it.
