My usual group and I were right in the middle of LBRS when all of a sudden our main tank disappeared. He could still see us, but we couldn't see him. He tied logging out, and back in, and never made it. We waited for over 30 minutes waiting for something to give. We all just killed WOW, no one could log out or hearth. The sad part is, our main tank just had his first piece of his first item set drop about 5 minutes before. Chances are, when he finally logs back in, it will be gone.This isn't the first time this has happened. I would say on average the 4-5 months I've played WOW, it happens to me about 2-3 times a month.Luckily the GMs are good at helping you with lost items. I recently had a 16 slot bag disappear from swapping bags from my inventory to the bank slot. After a few days of petitioning the GM with my issue, the bag was restored, and I am happy I didn't loose a 30g item.The point to keep in mind is that, you are playing a very popular game that the WOW population is ever-growing. It's going to have growing pains, and you have to deal with them. Being a developer myself, I could not fathom the complexity of a system like WOW. So I am a bit flexible on how I feel about the crashes. It happens, it's software, to err is human.The main concern is that they keep working hard to resolve issues (and trust me they are), and keep adding new content (which they do). Beyond that, relax, watch TV, play with your dog, talk to you family, go outside (gasp!!). The server will come back up, they will learn a little more, the situation will eventually get better...
