World Server is Down

Technical Support
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.

This is being looked into.
This is happening to me too now... I don't think it's the server going down, my guild mates are all still on, questing as normal. I just get logged off and get the World Server down message :( has happened 4 times now. Help please.
