I got killed and chose the option of finding my corpse rather than taking a 25% hit on my health, but even though I’m standing right on top of my corpse, I cannot get the “Resurrect Now?” dialog box to appear.
In-Game Support says log out and log back in - no go. I also tried coming at my corpse from another direction - nothing. I am in Fargodeep Mine area and not underwater, so I don’t know what the problem is.
I put in another request for help, but gaven’t heard back and this is the third day this has been going on.
Computer is clean and resurrect works on all other characters.
A. The answer you’ll get from your next GM: Delete your WTF Folder and any addons and try again.
B. Wait until Tuesday morning for the server maintenance/reset.
C. Just use the spirit healer, the debuff is temporary (up to 10 minutes depending on your level) and will only cost you a little money in item repairs, which if you’re leveling you’ll make back in 20 minutes.
Jragon, thanks for your help! You know, I didn’t have the WTF, CACHE and INTERFACE folders installed (is it really called the What The Fuck folder?) So they sent me a zip file with a repair kit inside.
Tried to unzip it, but got a message from Winzip telling me I had to buy their service (thought it was free), so I did that, unzipped the kit and downloaded it. I hope everything is fixed now, but I won’t know till tomorrow because I had to leave for work and didn’t have time to check.
Anyway, just a big THANK YOU to you and all the others for helping me out. For reasons best explained in another thread of mine, I really enjoy this game, and I miss playing it.
PS: How long does the patch run on Tuesday? (Can’t get to the site from work)
… I got the following partial message in my e-mail:
If you are still experiencing these issues or you are unable to locate your corpse, you may use the Spirit Healer to revive the character in question. However, if you wish to use the Spirit Healer,*** we cannot reimburse for the associated penalties***.
I *thought * this meant the 25% hit against my health, but today I checked my bank statement online, and there was a one dollar charge listed.
Just use the spirit healer. The debuff only lasts for 10 minutes, and the 25% durability hit against your items is more or less unnoticable until you start getting purple gear at 70. I have no idea what that $1 charge was – Blizzard doesn’t charge you for anything except the subscription fee.
The “penalty” they won’t reimburse you for is the cost (in WoW money) to repair your gear after you rez at the spirit healer, but if you’re lower than level 10, you don’t get that penalty anyway. I don’t know what the $1 charge would be… could it be for WinZip?
The associated penalties refer to the fact that, in addition to the rezz sickness, all of your items (equipped and in inventory) will receive a 25% durability hit which costs in game money to have repaired.
As for the $1 charge, perhaps an authorization charge to make sure the credit card is valid? If so, will probably be credited or reversed.
