This weekend a rather strange thing happened to me. I logged on Saturday night with Erdrique and then I made my way to House Kundarak and the crafting hall. While I was transitioning from House Kundarak to the crafting hall instance I was booted from the game. I then tried to relog back in I ran into a situation where the game kept saying it was trying to “cleanup old connections…”. It was similar to what was occurring in this forum post. So I decided to log into my other account and logged in with Stoorage and noticed this:
In the guild roster tab, it shows Erdrique as being logged in and being in the Crafting Hall. Well since I wasn’t dual boxing I found this quite interesting. There was no way Erdrique was logged on even though the game thought I was logged in. After cleaning up some maintenance stuff with Stoorage I logged out and then brought Erdrique back on. I didn’t have any problems this time and continued to make my way through the Catacombs when all of sudden, in the middle of the Crypt of the Gerard Dryden, I hit one of the most awful lag spikes I have encountered. I was literally still for about 10 minutes or so. Eventually the game finally caught up and I was amazed that I was still alive and that I didn’t those connection. I didn’t run into any other issues until I got to Endgame: Marguerite. At that point I got suck on a load screen for another 10 minutes or so and decided to call it a night.
I then scanned the forums today and noticed this thread in particular. I guess Thelanis was just having some issues over the weekend for some folks. Well at least I got some questing done on Saturday, but I was really hoping to get through the Catacombs. Oh well, I’ll just hit up this week. I’m just glad it just wasn’t me hitting these lag spikes and connection issues.
I hope everybody else had an enjoyable weekend. Happy Hunting everybody!!
