"Hello everybody!

Yesterday and this morning there was a temporary problem, which meant that the quest log could be lost between 21:30 and 01:30 when changing areas. The cause has been fixed with a hotfix and we are offering the affected characters support in restoring quests that comprise several steps, require a longer period of time to complete or can no longer be accepted. "

So if you are one of those affected, write a ticket directly to support.
