I finally completed my first month of dailies this past Monday/Tuesday. I'm probably crazy, but I'm doing 5 different sets of dailies spread out over 3 different accounts. I was about two weeks in when I had to go out of town for about 5 days and found out after the fact that I wasn't going to have any internet access for the whole trip. Was pretty discouraged because I was under the assumption that not logging in resets your progress back to zero. The first day I got back I logged in, and didn't like the options that day, so I didn't bother doing any of the dailies, assuming that my progress had already been reset anyway. After a day or so, I decided to buckle down and start over again, determined to get just one monthly bonus for each of my 5 characters.
Once I got to the 3rd weekly bonus for 3 of my characters, I decided it would be worth it to log them down, just so I didn't miss any by mistake. When April 3rd came around, my first character that should have gotten the monthly bonus didn't get it, or even a weekly bonus that she should have. Then on the 4th, my 2nd and 3rd characters were due to get theirs, but only one of them did. I was pretty livid about this given all the aggravation getting many of these objectives can take. I put in a ticket on the support page explaining that I definitely completed every day of objectives for my characters and only one of three got the monthly bonus. After getting an unsatisfactory reply about this, I sent a follow-up e-mail detailing the situation and got a reply that it would be rectified and my character would receive the appropriate monthly bonus. I double-checked and found that only one of the two characters had their account credited for the bonus, so I've sent a follow-up asking that the other character get what was earned as well.
Anyhow, I'm posting this because I did read somewhere that not being able to log in at all doesn't necessarily reset your progress towards the monthly objective. Had I known that before, I might have earned my monthly objectives a couple weeks ago already. Obviously, logging in and then choosing not to do the set of dailies should reset the progress, but life happens and you can't always make it online.
I'm hoping someone can clarify this for me. As it happens, I'm set to get the monthly objective on my 4th and 5th characters (as I'll describe them) this upcoming Tuesday, but now I know I'll be leaving town for about a week this Sunday, and it's very likely that I won't have any access to Online during that time. Is it confirmed that my progress would be preserved for that week, and that if I complete the remaining couple of days once I first log back on, I would still get the monthly bonus, albeit a week behind my original schedule.
What I read earlier on this forum was a bit confusing as to whether you can only preserve the progress for one character out of two on an account, and since it was almost a two-year old conversation, I was looking for an understanding on how things currently work. I'd be really disappointed to come up two days short of getting two monthly bonuses, and whatever I can do to avoid that, I'd like to make the effort to do so. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!
