Start over again.  Normally you can get some decent stuff yourself, and 
then I normally would talk to some friends of higher level, explain the 
situation, and they would help me re-obtain the eq over again.  If 
however, you are career 30th level char, I'd say your SOL for getting eq

Personally I dislike them, so I dont write them into new areas, but I also
keep the old ones in.  I guess I'm a sucker for the "old ways".  They
server their purpose in re-cycling eq if there isnt a system to wear out

I'd also suggest that DT's be linked to the Dump, so the eq can reset, 
and there isnt the temptation for Immorts to steal items from DTs and 
return it to their friends.
