- Item restoration (possible in some cases / may be a service in some cases)
- Impossible to complete a quest
- Bugged character statistics
- Disappearance of an already learned spell

Players are obligated to report any bugs in the game via the Bug Tracker. Failing to do so or abusing a bug instead of reporting immediately will be punished based on the discretion of the Athena Team.
If you do not know how to report a bug, please go to this page.
Examples of what to report via the Bug Tracker:
- Global issues (problems that concern not only you, but more (or all) players)
- Bugged quests, bugged pet abilities or problems which due to their nature are not resolvable in-game by a GM
- Bugged spell/ item
- NPC, Game Object or loot is missing or bugged
Complaint System/Report Player
The in-game report system is used to report inappropriate behavior of other players within the game. To use this, right-click the character name in chat (or health bar portrait), and select “Report Player”.
It’s possible to report a player for chat-related offenses (see the Chat section), inappropriate name (character, pet, guild, Arena team), or for Cheating (such as botting, hacking, multiboxing). In Cheating reports, write about what you saw in the text window provided. Screenshots can be helpful in some cases (send to Gamemaster team using Discord).
Athena Team resolves loot issues only from Cataclysm raid instances under certain circumstances. Issues must be submitted via a Discord ticket (a guide is in the #read-first channel), in the correct format and contain all information. Incomplete Discord tickets or tickets not following the format may be rejected. If you are unsure, feel free to look at some examples here.
Loot restoration requests have to be submitted as soon as possible after the incident. Significantly delayed requests may be rejected.
Loot issues from raids are subject to Loot Incident Quota, this means that only so many items can be refunded per raid group in a set time frame.

Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, punishments may vary from verbal warnings, mutes, item deletion, suspension (ban) of account(s) (short term, long term, permanent, and/or IP). Punishments may also be linked to other TwinStar services (Discord, forum, Facebook, …).
Punishments are effective immediately.
