Region: North America
At 12:30am, I re-connected to #1502 to have it spawn my level 60 alt character in the desert. While that was weird, it’s not something unheard of, so I simply removed my bracelet to respawn at my bed, which is where I was when I had left off. It occurred to me that earlier in the day, I had renamed my clan to send a message to a friend on the server that had been trying to reach me (i.e. Doom`s Children -> Adia: Friend Me!) so figured maybe that had something to do with it.
As my base was spawning in around me, I noticed that the bed and some other things still showed my original clan name which concerned me somewhat, yet upon discovering I could still open doors, etc. I breathed somewhat easier.
Yet before renaming the clan back to Doom`s Children again, I figured I’d play it safe, prop the exit open, and then loot all the chests containing my gear, armor, keys, and food (I unequip everything and store it in chests when I’m AFK or offline).
So I’m waiting and waiting, and nothing is appearing in the cupboard my armor is in, nor the chest storing my weapons. I decide to return the cupboard to my inventory as a test, and sure enough it’s the only thing in my inventory! I check the Event Log, and find this nonsense:
For some unfathomable reason, even though all that gear had been stashed in chests that were still there, all the contents just poofed into nothingness! Logging out and in again didn’t make them reappear, nor did returning my clanname back to Doom`s Children.
I’m completely flummoxed here. While I’ve got backups of almost all that gear on my main character, that’s still a ton of materials to recraft all my sets of FE armor, not to mention getting the dye jobs synced up between all of them so I can mix n’ match without looking like a hobo.
Meanwhile, the left-most chest still had all my “situational” gear that I only bring with me on specific missions.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Store everything in chests like you’re supposed to so as to avert temperature death claiming your gear.
- Have the game crash while you’re AFK.
- Reconnect to find yourself in the desert.
- Remove bracelet to get back home, only to find the 3 of the 4 containters nearest your bed have all lost their contents as if to invalidate the time-honored wisdom of storing your gear in chests before logging off or going AFK.
