I was playing today, enjoying the game as usual on geforce now, and suddenly for the first time after more than 50 hrs recorded on steam, my session crashed.
When reconnecting, i noticed my character to be in the state it was more than 2 hours ago at least, i lost a bunch of uniques most notably a chest piece that boosted my health by 38% and made my life a lot easier as a poison liche.
Fortunately i did record the fight i had some time before the crash when i completed my last 90 boss to finally unlock lvl 100 empowered monolith, below on the first video you can see the state of my session before the crash at 8:30 , v.s the state where it got rolled back at 400 stability, currently, it’s a clear proof of all what i lost.
The chat reacted in disbelief, and told me that it was either a glitch or me trying to cheat or lie in someway which is not the case, i have never even used a third party nor interacted with the game in a suspicious way, i am just a new player trying to enjoy the game.
That being said, and after reconsidering, this might possibly be the primary cause of all of this, i did notice something very strange during those 2 hours + when i was min maxing my build.
At one point i used an acolyte helmet that gave me a +1 on one of my skills, (death seal), but i kept swapping that helmet in and out as with the rest of my gear in a genuine attempt to check which build worked best for me naturally.
BUT during the process at a certain moment, i did notice that even without wearing the said helmet, i still had a +1 displaying on my skill, i thought it was a visual glitch, and sure enough after a while it did wear off and i saw my character back to normal, so i didn’t think more of it.
When the chat evoked the question of glitch it immediately reminded me of that moment which is completely out of my power, and the time at which those events occured almost match the moment in time where i got rolled back in time with some exceptions such as the gear that i’m wearing and the equipments in my inventory.
Either way this is a very very frustrating experience, and as a new player who was deeply enjoying the game so far, i wish no person to experience such atrocity especially not after release.
I lost a unique chest that boosted my health up by 38% and radically change the easiness of my clears a lot, and basically more than 2 hours of important progression that i just have to redo all over which is very sad.
Something good can happen out of my miserable experience.
