I actually lost the last 70 points of my 450 fishing this way :(I have no idea how this could have happened since it was HOURS of fishing.GM Reply: I am unable to restore the missing skill, but it's easy to go out and just fish some more ;)Yeah thanks -.-

Exactly same thing happened to me - 40 minutes of fishing wasted. And I opened a ticket to a GM and got the same reply.Its a load of crap really - just because its easy to fish those points back doesn't mean I want to do waste another 40 minutes doing it! Also I got the achievement for 500 fish caught at the same time before the server restart, and when the server came back up I'd lost it. This is a bit more worrying - is this the case with all achievements that are done within the 15 minute restart window do you think?

yeah, easy isn't the word i'd use and the GM is clearly implying that your time means nothing. I like to fish as much as the next guy but that's a rude reply from the GM to a serious gap in their platform.since we are paying blizzard to provide us this game/service, would it be too much to ask them to regularly save my progress during my gaming session as well (and not just at the end)? sure it may be computationally expensive to write each skillup to the DB, but there must be some middle ground of perhaps a writing the state every x minutes, or x many skillups. This way a client/server/network crash would cost you x minutes/skillups max and not hours of progress.
