Lost 80 days of Invocating

Last night I was in Icewind Pass awaiting a PvP game to pop.

I double tapped "A" in the Vault of Piety to get a few Foehammers Elixir's... After I double tapped twice I had lost all my coins and have 1 stack of 99 and randomly 1 stack of 61, leaving me with 57 coins. So that is 80 days of Invocating.

I ran a test this morning and you cant even buy stacks of them, you can only buy singles.

So I have no idea why this happened to me.

    Did you submit a ticket to support?

    Hiya :)

    No I have not submitted a ticket as truthfully I am not that fussed about it. As I have been playing since near the start there is not anything I actually need or require off there... Also as I can use the Elixir's for 160hrs and wont need to buy any for a long time.

    I also have 7 Alt's with a few hundred coins each etc.

    I posted this as a warning for others... If someone only has 1 character and saving up for the Angel, if they lose all their coins it would not be very nice. I also have had a couple of people comment on Reddit that it has happened to them as well.

    So I very much think there is a bug in there that the Dev's might want to have a look at :)

    I did post it in the bug section of the Xbox forum on here too.

    This has happened to me a few times as well. Following huntgate I can't see myself ever contacting support. I'd rather just quit the game.

    Although I am PC player, what I have noticed is that when there is a lag spike exactly when you go to make a purchase (or actually using a consumable), there appears to be a looping of sorts as if the game and the server are trying to sync and duplicating actions as a result. I also experience this in combat where I am scoring more hits even though I only clicked once.

    (On occasions like this, I run PingStatus while playing online and I can see when it happens. There is a one second disconnect followed by a 514ms spike before returning to the average 24ms.)

    Admittedly, I've also been experiencing mouse issues where I click on the mouse and either it doesn't respond, or it responds way too much. Switching USB ports or trying a different mouse doesn't appear to make a difference. Perhaps something similar is happening to the X-Box One controller?

    Is it 320 days of invocation instead?
    I read that you now have 160 Elixir. You need 2 coins per Elixir. You get 1 coin ( that you can buy Elixir) per day.
    The game can read your mind. If you want it, you won't get it. If you don't expect to get it, you will.

    Yes its 1 coin for the 1st Invocation of the day and then another on the 6th. So my main character gets 2 a day whilst my Alt's only get 1 a day as I dont do it 6 times on those.

    But yes I think my maths is off lol... It is 2 coins per Elixir so 160 Elixirs would be 320 days... but half that as its my main so I lost 160 days of Invocation I think :)

    I have no idea to be honest... hoping the Dev's can maybe come back and say what it is or could be.

    You can only get one coin per day for the coin you used to get Elixir (regardless you invoke once or 6 times).
    The coin you can get two per day cannot be used to get Elixir. It is used to get the chests (11 coins per chest).
    The game can read your mind. If you want it, you won't get it. If you don't expect to get it, you will.

    I'll forward the issue but I also recommend submitting a ticket to support :)
