Some players have had their characters vanish recently. This isn't a wipe. See below here for gmdredd's response to the problem of vanishing players.
I know that this is a very concerning issue. Please know that we are working with the developers to solve this issue as quickly as we possibly can. We may ask you for what seems to strange information, or to create a new character with the same name. This will help the developers to identify and fix the issue.
If your character is missing, please remake it on the same server and faction using the same name and class. Next (if you have not already done so), Submit a Ticket
with the following information and stating you have remade your character:
1. Character Name
4. Character Level
5. Last Login Date/Time (when you had your character)
