I can't log on my toon that which the disconnection occurred on, but I can log on any other toons of the same realm/server. I hope that issue is fixed, especially considering she is my main :(


Possible that's a cache corruption issue due to addons not liking a disconnection. The instructions here will remove all your addons, so that's a last resort, first try disabling all addons before logging in. If that work try only deleting/renaming your Cache folder, and then go into your WTF folder and rename the folder for the affected character. If that works you can try replacing the backed-up character WTF folder.

Kept getting aborted transfer error cross realm server down. Could not log out had to hard close the game. Now I am unable to play my main. Says world server is down but all my other characters are playable.


I won't dare propose my unknowing guesses as fact, but it's possible that characters in cross-realm situations (zones/instances/groups/etc.) could be affected due to the specifics of the issue at-hand. Investigation continues, and we're in the process of escalating it to a larger group of people.

We're nearing the previously scheduled maintenance time of 3am PDT for the implementation of patch 5.4.1. While we're making good progress, the current plan requires that all realms come down for the 3am scheduled maintenance. We'll let you know if the current issues impact maintenance times.
