    How to avoid realm downs?

    Hi i just got a realm down when xfering gear... lucky all i lost was a laying of hands and a rare ring. Does anyone know how to avoid realm downs when xfering gear? Thanks. (I think blizzard is stupid if realm downs are suppose to hurt botters...they hurt legit players instead)

    Avoid logging/logging out to fast.

    wait exactly 5 seconds, no less, after leaving a game before doing anything, even pressing "create" or "join."

    This has been talked about at length on these forums. Realm Downs were supposed to alleviate server strain and remove long wait times to create games. I think they performed that function quite well.

    A sure way to get r/d for me is:
    1) sign off my account
    thats all, just when ever I sign off r/d without fail. But thats just me, and only when I am at my parents house.

    take a look at the bnet connection guide in my sig and you'll find out that theres really no way to avoid realm downs. Patience is the key. Don't just do pindle run games; do meph and the pits as well. And don't transfer too many times as well.
