instant logout?
« on: June 02, 2014, 03:27:08 AM »
Is there a way to do instant logout, or do I always have to wait 30 sec for some reason not obvious to me?

I was getting a dialog with an exit now option. But it may be location dependent as I do recall having to wait 30 seconds at one point - cannot remember where though.

Unless they have fixed it already, the fastest way, however, was to try to report spam (gold sellers where present Saturday morning), which caused an immediate crash to desktop!

Alt-F4 always works, if you're in a desperate hurry.  :)  However, this will likely leave your character in the game world for 30 seconds.

The report spam crash was reputedly fixed over the weekend, though I haven't worked up the courage to try it again.  :D

yeah they patched the report bug already :)

If you're in your housing plot or one of the two major cities, switching characters I think is instant. Otherwise you have the exit option will let you "exit now" but that exits the game entirely.

Sounds very much like how wow works in that if your inn or a city your logout instantly else you have a counter. Except as Wren pointed out the only area's that allow instant logout are your housing plot or one of the two major cities.

It does help that once you complete the quest for touring the city you get a city teleport on top of your transmat terminal teleport, so that can help hold you over until you have your housing plot. After that it makes sense to logout in your housing plot anyway because most likely you'll have things there giving you rest bonuses.

Is there a "teleport home" button?  I haven't seen mine; I'm level 16.

Assuming you have a house...

On the right bottom of the "recall" button is an up-arrow.  That'll let you change what that button does: teleport to bind location, teleport to house, and if you've done the prerequisite quest you also get teleport to your capital city as an option (24 hour cooldown, boo).
