Server session will expire in 2 hours

★★★ Apprentice

I’m constantly getting these pop-ups while playing the game is this a new norm or is it something that they plan to fix in the future?

If its during freeplay it just means the server you conected to is refreshing. Exit to tarsis and come back in.

Yes it’s during free play but it happens so frequently it’s quite distracting and it’s not very fun to have to end your session early I was just wondering if this is the new norm or is it something that will be addressed in the future.

The first time you get the warning you usually have two hours left.

Normally I head back to Fort Tarsis before those two hours are up anyway, so my instance being closed sometime afterward isn't really a problem.

There are other instances still running to get back into Freeplay.

 

Tomorrow there'll be maintenance during which all servers will be offline, but you get an other warning for that.

We call the 2 hour timer that pops up the legendary timer.

 

Because when we see it, we seem to get more legendary after the message.
