    After yesterday's patch with the new revive ui design that was added, another change was added to the reviving mechanics.

    As the title, now after we are dead on the ground for 10 minutes, the game automatically respawns us in the nearest "town" exploration node. Usually I stay dead when I die and my fairy revive skill is on cooldown, so when it becomes available I can revive and avoid losing experience.

    This same mechanic is used in the instances like battle arena, once you die you are automatically revived on spot after a period of time.

    There is no mention of this in the patch notes anywhere, is this a bug or is this a nerf to the fairy revive mechanics? Will it be fixed and when? Will you restore all the EXP lost during this period of time to everyone who was force to revive by the game?

    It really sucks losing exp by being forced to revive after dying to an issue that certain game underwater areas have that when you swap channels or plainly come from another character are slammed into the ground and killed by fall damage. Until now fairy revive was a good way to counter this.

    Edit:
    Spoke to a pearl abyss developer and turns out he is not sure if this was a mistake or not but he said that the person who wrote the new UI changes most likely copy pasted the line where it determines the type of revive and the time it should "timeout" to the next line after an if case, and forgot to set it to 0 and it was set to 600 just like being dead in war times out after 10 minutes (600 seconds) and forces to revive as well.
    Good code. Hopefully will be fixed soon...

    woud you still auto-revive in town after login if you log on another char to wait the fairy cooldown out?

    No, you would auto revive if you wait 10 minutes after being in the dead char. (if you close your game, of course, you won't auto revive. if you come back and wait another 10 minutes you are forced to revive again)

    When you die there is no way to swap characters besides completely closing the game through task manager and crashing it. The game does not allow you to use any menus or options or anything.

    These two things just shows that this is not an intended feature and simply one more mistake made by the developers. There is no mention of this in any of the patch notes.

    Maybe they were not selling enough Elions tears so thought this was a good idea to frustrate players into buying them.

    Issue is fixed with today's patch according to my friend at PA.
    Thread can be closed, as always, useless thread. It's not likely that they even care about the players.
