HELP! Bug stole all my mana! [GAME BUG]
I was in my tavern with my level 73 character (created when the game first came out in 2011 - this is important to know). I decided to go to the shop services and try out purchasing one XP Bonus, just to see how much it would give me.

What happened was horrible. Instead of paying 70,000 mana for a little extra experience (what should have happened), the game took 80million+ of my mana to give XP to my character! Naturally, I was in complete shock and disbelief - and really unhappy about it.

Here's what I think happened: because my character is so old, in order to level beyond 70, I need to achieve much more XP than a newer character (I believe). I guess before you could go beyond level 70, your character still gained experience, anyway. Now, I have (had) 13.1M experience and in order to level from 73 - 74, I need to get to 18.1M experience - which seems like way too much.

My best guess is that this little oversight/glitch confused the system into trying to level up my character using the XP bonus purchase. When it tried to give me enough experience to level up--it gave me nearly 3.5M XP for the purchase--it still couldn't level my character up and somehow drained all of my mana in the process.

I am on the forums for two reasons:

A) I want to warn many older character to stay away from the XP Bonus purchase option, as it seems really bugged if you have a character with a lot of experience from before Trendy unlocked more level upgrades.

B) If there are developers of TrendyNet monitoring the forums, could you please contact me and help me roll my character back to a previous state to fix this issue for me.

the experience required to get to 74 has always been 18 million or there abouts, nowadays this amount of experience is easy to get with the newer maps.

before you could go beyond level 70, you still gained exp to the next level, once the new level 74 came out then those who had a maxed experience bar for their character was automatically granted a level up to 71.

3.5 million exp boost does seem to be a bit too much though, iirc it should be around 10% of the experienced needed to level up (for lvl 70+). and 80 million + mana is waaaaaaaaaay too much.

here is a website for further reading on lost characters or items:

it appears they may not be able to help you get the mana back, but if you think there is a problem with your chacters then i think it is worth emailing them on the matter.

good luck.

Thanks for the clarifications - I didn't know if it was just unfortunate, or if that really is the XP required to level up.

I really hope they can help me out. I know they did a lot of rollbacks of characters when the game first came out due to a lot of bugs - some similar to this one.

It would be really sad if they couldn't help - if that were the case, I don't think I would play anymore.

Thanks for the offer. I really hope they can just roll my character back after looking at some logs to prove what happened to me.

I know people make insane mana these days, but to me 80M was like a lifetime achievement up to this point (non-nightmare characters).
