World Server is Down


85 Orc Shaman
Several times today, I've been booted from the game back to the character selection screen and receive the error "World server is down" upon trying to log back in.

Several attempts at logging back in will result in me being able to get back into the game, sometimes for a good long while, other times just to be kicked back out.

Seems to only be happening on my Deathwing characters, but I've not been on another server long enough today to verify that.

That means that the continent you are on when you get DC'd with that error have crashed and it takes a couple of minutes for it to reboot.

Thanks for the report, Jyve.
