Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
There are many, many questions which we have been asked by players through tickets and many other means. Amidst these hundred, maybe thousands, of questions posted to us, there are a number which have been repeatedly asked and this is where you will find the answers to some, if not all of them.
You may wish to use Ctrl+F to search for the question you have in mind if you don't wish to scroll through the entire Q & A.
Q: Why does it take so long for my ticket to get answered by a GM?
A: That might be because no GM is online during the time on your realm in which you have submitted a ticket. Bear in mind that there are nine realms in total, all loaded with tickets and only a limited amount of GMs is online to any given time.Q: Will my ticket get deleted automatically if I go offline?
A: No, your ticket will remain there even if you go offline. This is one of the many reasons why you should always describe your issue in detail wherever possible so that a GM may resolve the issue or contact you via other means to solve the issue with your character. However, do note that we cannot help with most issues, if you go offline. In most cases you will receive an ingame mail about your issue.
Q: I was AFK just now and my ticket is gone! The problem I reported was also not solved!
A: You probably did not describe the problem well enough for a GM to handle it properly. However, check for any messages left by the GM, who replied to your ticket. In order to not disturb the GM who handled your ticket while you were AFK, please submit a new ticket. Spamming a GM will not help as the GM might be handling another ticket already. Also refer to the things you should not submit a ticket about here.
Q: I've died and I can't revive right now! I tried the unstuck tool on the website and in-game but I still can't revive myself! I can't find a Spirit Healer either! Must I remain online or can I go on another character?!
A: First of all, don't panic. After you have submitted a ticket on the character which you are stuck dead on, you are free to play on another character. We can revive your character whether or not he/she is online.Q: How do I know if a GM is contacting me?
A: Worry not as even if you're in an area full of spam, you can still find the whisper from a GM! Why? That's because a special chat window will open when a GM first contacts you.
When you hear a "ding" sound in-game after making a ticket, look at top right corner of your screen and you should see this
Once you have opened the chat window with a GM, it should look like this
. This way, you can tell the difference when a real GM contacts you and when an impersonator contacts you!
Q: My ticket got deleted while I was offline. Why?
A: Please check your in-game mail as a GM should have already mailed you a response. The mail should include the basic coverage on what to do on your issue - provided it's a common one. In the event whereby your issue is a complicated one instead of the usual "GM where i report bug" sort, a GM will contact you when it's your ticket's turn.Q: The wait time of my ticket keeps changing and jumping back and forth, why?
A: The wait time is not working properly, you should not pay attention to it at all.
