    Why does it take 24hrs to patch a decade old expansion? The original didn't even take that long, what gives?

    They are merging servers together. Opening Kunark does not take any downtime.

    They don't have patches or downtime to unlock new TLP expansions, the downtime is for the monthly update and is combined with a server merge.

    Why is it so hard spending 30 seconds reading exactly what the downtime is for and understanding that it's not for patching an expansion?

    Pretty much this.

    I think these monthly maintenance days encompass pretty much everything, not sure flipping the switch to turn on Kunark on one lonely server.

    Yes. Everything is totally about you and the server you play on. Nothing else exists anywhere, ever.

    I came to the forums because I knew I'd find a thread like this :D

    He isn't wrong though ...

    There is no reason ALL of the servers should be down for 24 hours when only a handful are getting major changes.

    lol @ all the stressing over 1 day. Get some sun or find a girlfriend maybe.

    It would be nice but they use a shared database which is why the shared downtime is happening.

    If they are patching/working on the hosts then all of the VMs need to come down.

    I believe it's called "Solteris?"
