    Hi folks

    this morning I was in the abyss until exactly 5:55 when I returned to del and stabled my greater drag. After that I went to the bank and banked my loot and then to my house..I was fooling around a bit when I got the famous message that you have 2 minutes to find a safe location...Well then I logged out..This evenin I logged in and found myself inside the abyss..of course without my drag. and I checked my pet status on my stat bar and it showed 0/5
    Ergo I lost my pet on account of the infamous logout bug which I thought they fixed!!!
    So that is my second drag I lost!!! anyone else had that problem lately?

    I haven't had the problem lately, but I always try to log out at least a half hour before server down. A half hour seems to be the standard revert when something goes wrong with the backup. Modern technology is great and all, but it's not perfect and I'd rather not risk losing good pets!

    Logout bug is when ye logout, yer pet doesn't, and goes wild. You simply got hit with a server down time lapse.
    Kit is right give it some leeway and get back to town lil early. Sorry bout yer pet M8.

    Any time I log out anywhere near server down I log back in upon server up. If it reverted your pet will still be there and you can collect/stable as needed.

    It's only 15 minutes :)

    Yeah sorry for your loss but you waited to long to log out.

    You shuld not wait until you get the message ot log out it is prob already to late. Like stated before if you do make sure you log right back in to check your pets.

    I lost a nice mare due to that a couple weeks ago.

    I logged out before I even got a server down soon message but it was close enough to find myself back in the last dungeon visited instead of my house when i logged back in.
    The mare was gone and hasn't been seen since.
