Freezing Job, Exp Reset

Disclaimer: I do not want to make this thread. In fact, the idea that I have to make this thread bothers me immensely. However, after submitting a support ticket I was given the response asking me to make a thread in the "general discussion forums so that we may collect data from other players who may have experienced the same issue as you. Please be sure to respond back to us with a link to the forum thread."

Here goes. I froze my Weaponsmith job at lvl 2 with 243 exp. Getting it back I now only have 100 exp. This is rather discouraging, and as much as I kind of hated the weaponcrafting as a whole I feel like 143 is a devastating amount of exp to lose. There are not many people who even have 143 weaponcraft exp...only 9 on the Storm rankings now.

That being said, the reason is likely that I had to re-learn the weaponcraft skill (not job, skill) upon putting a point back in. Whatever the reason, even if this was some sort of error on my part, I was never given any indication that freezing a job could result in exp lost. I clearly would not have risked it if that were the case.

If you have a similar experience that you think could help PWE support gather more information please post it here. This is obviously not an issue you can "solve" or they would have done so, so I am not interested in hearing your arguments for what I did wrong or what I need to do to correct it. Also not interested in flaming, or a ton of speculation. They did not ask for those things and if you would be so kind as to keep this thread simpler for them to read and "collect data" from I would be grateful.

    same thing for taming.....i froze it to get jewel craft and it reset taming back to lvl 2.
    at the point i froze tamer it was at 670+/960. After it was 300/960. So yeah i was not too happy about it.

    Freezing a job only keeps the level, not the exp. It is working as intended, however, I do agree there needs to be way better in game description and warnings of freezing a job >.>

    Up til now I never picked up a job again once it was frozen, so I had no idea. The wisdom fruit does say job progress, I could only assume that meant all progress towards the next level as well.

    I think support could help you... maybe, since you got misled by the description.

    but you may need SSs of it at 243 x.x

    Thankfully I took one before the rankings reset, although I had made 2 more since. :)

    I guess it makes sense once you realize how it works... but wow the in-game descriptions are misleading.

    Hopefully support can help you out with this Baby.

    I was just told by support that "I have just spoken to engineering, and the item is working as intended. The description says that it will freeze the job level, but all experience past the level will not be saved."

    I am at a loss here. The description does not say that, at all.

    Yeah, I saw no such description either, on the CS item or bound wisdom fruit from quests

    I haven't had this happen yet >.> but we'll see if I freeze something to take bot back (lvl 6) and see what happened. Unfortunately I kinda froze it just as I got lvl 6, so I don't think that it's really going to matter, however, I know a guildie got the same thing with artisan, except I think hers was level 2 and went back to 1. I'll see if I can get him/her to post her experience.

    Engineering dept says the item is working as intended. Goodbye to months of work on one of the toughest jobs to level in the game. Thanks FW for being clear and concise in your descriptions of game-altering items.
