Yes, I agree. It is very sad.
Since it would take all of half an hour for a community rep to compose a statement about this problem and get approval from his/her boss, it's hard to understand. But that assumes some level of concern, business-side, about product quality or customer service.
My conclusion is that there is nothing good to tell us about this, not for now nor in the near future. No, we aren't working on the bug (or maybe No, we don't know how to fix it) and No, we don't intend to fix your broken characters.

Wanting to LR and was hoping this was resolved. Too paranoid to try it now, even though a guildy assures me it is resolved.
A word on this issue from any Dev would be appreciated.
My list of characters who need to TR is growing a fair amount. But because of this known issue, I have held off. I've seen bits and pieces from people about the company possibly knowing what the problem is, and what causes it. I don't wanna repeat them though, because I feel like they are inaccurate.
I've been eagerly watching this thread hoping for some official word. Because if they've addressed it publicly, I sure as hell still see plenty of people confused.
Normally us DDO players know how to work around our bugs. This one isn't one of those things to experiment with. An official response, even if one has already been given, would do a lot towards easing some tension. I know my characters at max level aren't too happy about not being able to TR and ALSO being hit by some gravity and physics bugs.
But my sympathies go out to those who have lost experience. That is really the worst part about this situation. The victims already claimed. I can wait for a bug fix, I can start other character projects, but the people who've been robbed of experience deserve a quick response and reassurance and should get top priority.
Thanks for the answers, guys. I want LR, but I do not know if I will dare.
It's a shame that there is no official response. I understand that these bugs can be difficult to resolve and time is needed for it. But just know if it's fixed or not would be a great help. Please developers, we only ask you to tell us if it's fixed or not. We understand that takes time to fix some problems.
English is not my native language. I apologize for the mistakes.
I have zero evidence to support this, and nobody responded to my thread asking about it, but I suspect that the destiny bug on reincarnation also applies to TR because I think the bug is from when you lose a feat that's a pre-req for a destiny ability you've taken.
Like if you take a destiny ability that requires power attack, and then you LR, at the start of your LR you no longer have power attack and so what happens to the destiny ability you took? Any number of possibilities, but I think what it actually does is erase all your destiny xp.
More information please.

I LR'd Friday to take advantage of the new +4 store tomes - no problems at all.
My ED's did not change at all - all you should need to do is pick the necessary prereq feats for the ED which was active at the time you LR'd.
Just FYI, if you still have your free LR, the game will force you to use it as opposed to a +1-+5 lesser heart of wood, so you won't be able to respec multiple class levels without a second LR.

Tr'd again to cleric, still had those enhancements set, didn't lose them at all, at least, not until I swapped a feat at that point and it suddenly recognized "ohh, you don't have power attack, ohh you don't have spell focus, let's reset those trees and refund you all your destiny points."
Granted, it might be a 'rare occurance' and that it's involved, but from my end, I TR'd twice, both times 'losing' prerequisite feats for some destiny enhancements I had, didn't lose the xp.
Nice exploit, I think. Consider my cleric, who I'm about to TR through a couple wizzie lives for spell pen before going back to cleric for his final life. His final build will take evo focus at 24 to twist in the draconic +2 to evo dc. But if I just farm out draconic on my wizard lives, once I hit my final cleric life I'll be able to twist in that +2 without taking the focus feat? Sweet!

About the GFLR Bug Pack (Greater Free LR Bug Pack)
As far as I remember this was the date when i checked this bug.
Several reports have been made, some answered, generally speaking that the bug was "solved" (but not giving sure).
Personally I have not seen new chars affected, then I think the Devs' initial efforts in making new cases not occur been a success.
However it was not given any news about the xp lost or how/when solving other related bugs in chars already affected.
Well, it started at the Up14 and we have a promise of Fernando Paiz to an "improvement in the quality of life" to the Up17.
Personally I'll keep waiting (But now without much expectation).
PS.: Like any good (and old) player watch and know several bugs in the game, and already reported it as however many are not resolved I will stop doing it. For the only answer we have (the GMs at least) is that "we can't do anything about it."
PPS.: Yes, my bard (Vahlyenah/Argonnessen) still bugged. . .
LR my arti last week, with the free one, and everything was ok..
1. I did a +3 lesser reincarnation to take away 2 classes from my build. Went from Exploiter Rgr18/1Rog/1Mnk to 20 Ranger.
2. I lost the Fury of Wilds innate ability(Adrenaline) that became unavailable(showing 0 uses) after I LR. Although no ticket/switch trees could solve the issue, once Ive earned enough xp again to get another epic action point it became available again. Now it is working flawless.
3. Ive LRd 2 nights ago, December 4th.
