    My Obsidian Destroyer is now a Large Obsidian Bear

    The necklace was equipt when the game updated. It WAS an Obsidian Destroyer named Toll Collector. Now it is still Toll Collector, but it says it is a Large Obsidian Bear.

    Yeah that's really a game blocker... :rolleyes:

    (Hint: Wrong category. This one is for really critical issues that prevent gameplay.)

    A break in the persistence of objects is a severe error which needs escalation imo.

    I looked at the other bugs listed here and felt it was equal or more severe.

    As for game blocking. I am a solo tamer. I cannot replace was the game stole easily and that bear is my weapon. If my vorpal blade was changed to a butter knife wouldn't that be a ga,e blocker?

    Mentioned in the other thread, but it also happened to my Wyvverns, 3 out of 4. So it's not super isolated. I bet many other players haven't noticed or logged in yet.

    I suggest patience, but it is scary when items get broken. But it's not the first time.

    Lol, had the same Bug.
    First I thought its balance nerf, but later I noticed that my Obsidian Destroyer wasnt a Destroyer anymore.
    Name was "Papa Bär der Trolltöter". I "released" him, because I thought it had done something stupid when I played with too much Jack in my veins *g*

    Issue #63861 . Verified. Looks like a data migration went awry. Will look into a remedy.

    EDIT: Pet data has been restored! Players who saw their pets changed will have their pet restored to the correct creature type. Players who have subsequently re-tamed a new pet will not be effected.
