I agree. Let's start using it as the default gathering point again. Do we really need Dorg to do anything? I'd have thought where characters hang out could be 99% player driven?
Hanging out is one part, but Hlint will miss out on the incidental foot traffic due to the lack of crafting amenities, the merchant prices, and portal arrivals. Also, the starter quests are focused in and around Hempstead and Vehl.
