Hello, this weekend I encountered a Lag Detected after trying to join the Lazarus dungeon. This completely froze the game for me, and I could not tp, move, etc. After 24 hours of various troubleshooting, I created a new character on Valhalla and this may have indirectly or directly unlocked this lag detected period. However, while this has allowed me to continue playing the game in real time, I find myself upon almost every log to main menu or desktop, my progress from my previous session has been erased and I spawn back at the Lazarus entrance where the lag detected occurred.

Specs: 16gb ram, 5700 XT GPU, i7 11th gen, game is on SSD
Troubleshooting List That I have already tried:
-uninstalled and reinstalled game (2x)
-Verified files (multiple times)
-restarted PC (multiple times)
-checked drivers
-Updated to Windows 11

Ingame troubleshooting
-killed my player in game to try to force save
-made a new character on Valhalla
-Tried Tping different places

Can you elaborate on how to find the game logs, can’t seem to find them in my file explorer.

Hello @Wellfleet!

The appdata folder is a hidden folder in some occasions, to be able to see the hidden folder you can follow this steps:

Open File Explorer from the taskbar.
Select View > Options > Change folder and search options.
Select the View tab and, in Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives and OK.
After it you would be able to see the files and pull them.

If you need more assistance please let me know.

Yes! That worked and I have located my logs, now what is the best way to share them in the ticket?

Sounds good, i currently made a compressed zip file of all my logs and put it onto my desktop next to new world for safekeeping.
Thanks for your help, I really hope to play soon as my company is waiting for my return.
