Well can some kind immort explain to me in nice simple
words why this dumb change was made?
I cant say it was very amusing trying to do a quest
that requires you use on of these 'NO_RENT' items and
failing a save despite having 8k free rent before starting.
While I supose these items needed a value to prevent 'abuse'
of them I am not the least bit impressed I could
possibly fail a save where I would normally not and as a
possible result lose all my eq beecause I'm holding an item I cannot
rent. If you are going to make theses items have a rent value
then find a way to exclude them when you either manually save
or get a forced save.

It seems you pretty much summed up the reason for yourself in very
plain and simple words. While you don't get the advantage of hoarding
said items on your character while you rent out at an inn, the addition
of player housing made it possible to stockpile items like this for
free without the disadvantage of losing them while you were gone.
Even without the addition of player housing, this was a change that has
been "on a todo list" for quite some time. The adiditon of housing and
the more prevalent abuse of it made it a higher priority than before.

Why not just make the items NO_SAVE? so they poof if you rent or
if there is a crash? There are more then enough crashes/schedualed
rebots/unschedualed reboots..Lower the rent back down and make them
NO_SAVE and they poof out of houses at reboot/crash. It makes it
easier on the poor people who NEED the item for a quest but are now
put over rent and risk losing everything while doint what you wanted
them to do and USE the item.

Kaige kind of explained the change, and why NO_RENT went from,
basically, NO_SAVE to what it is currently. The rent, for most
of the items, was already on them. It just didn't count. We discounted
the majority of items that are NO_RENT with this change,
however, there will be a few items(yes, a few) that are high
rent. There are reasons for the high rent on these items, and
unless we remove those reasons, the rent has to stay as it is.
However, if you feel that a quest item is too high of rent,
feel free to drop me a note about the item, and I'll gladly
look into it.
