Just logged in since the patch... Turbine, why do I keep putting my faith in you? You clearly aren't worth it. First, you break all forms of crafting and make ingredients need to be coaxed into bags. That's pretty impressive, even by your standards. 10k stars somehow loses its flag as a Monk feat. Both are major bugs that affect quite a lot of players. Monkchers/Shuricannon builds must be parked, and all lowbies with crafting skills are parked until this is fixed. Human arties have had their race choice made completely worthless.
So you made a patch to fix the problem. Good job! I wish it had come out earlier, but I guess all that matters is that it's fixed, right?
Wrong. Somehow, you borked everything even harder. Tried to solo eGH, never even made it to a single quest. I got killed at the first fight in the wilderness area. Every time I tried to run away, I got teleported back to the fight. I couldn't Stun a red name, and I was going to summon the hire once I got into the quest, so I rather quickly died because I kept trying to run. Is this happening to anyone else? It was the first (and only) fight I'd ever got in since the patch. If it's everyone, this will kill pretty much any quests in wilderness areas - which, for some reason, make up quite a bit of the quests - until it's fixed. Maybe it only appears on the red-name, and if I reset the instance, it will fix it. Release.
Okay, apparently I was bound to House Cannith. Annoying, but it is my fault. The legacy ship buffs are gone, time to get more. And I'm locked out of my airship. There was an error in teleporting, it says. Repeatedly. Relog, see if that'll fix it. Since the game never actually quits when I hit "Quit", it just blackscreens for 30min until Windows realizes that it's never going to fix itself and asks me if I want to end the program, I hit "Quit" and then end it with Task Manager. Been doing it for years, never messed anything up yet. But when I try to log back in to my character, it says "This character is still being saved." What does that even mean? Why do ALL my characters say that now when I try to log in? Why does it say I'm in Gianthold instead of the Market? Why is it saying now (around 20-30min after incident) that "Your character could not be saved"? Is my main's data corrupted? I can't log in to any of my other toons, are they all corrupted too? Did it just not save this session, or did it save part of it? How can you screw up code THIS BADLY, that every minor addition/change completely breaks the game?
Turbine, did you just read a Corrupt-a-Wish thread and make it literal?
