    What is "Player Not Found"?

    I playing with my sorc yesterday for a bit, then I logged on today to go on my necro but it keeps saying "Player Not Found." What does that mean?

    are you playing open b.net where the chars are stored locally? Maybe the savefiile is corrupted, deleted or been moved.

    And when exactly does it says "Player Not Found"?

    I get that sometimes. It's just regular BNet lag. Try logging into your Account again. That usually does it for me. On the other hand, do you get this error message more than once in a row? Usually after I get it once, it sorts itself out.

    I only get "Player not found" when I stay too long on the character screen. I never have it otherwise.

    There is a way to report bad characters to Blizzard, but I forgot how...

    I'm quite sure that statement was the "tongue-in-cheek" variety.

    You could get more answers if you described more. I don't understand a freakin thing about what happened to you.

    One chance is if you are on open bnet and you deleted your character

    Another is that you have your clock set incorrectly and your necro has already expired, even though it says you have three days left.

    As you said it expees soon, I guess you haven't played much so far. Perhaps you started the necro, played him for a short amount of time and for some reason a rollback was made on the server, i.e. it was brought back to an older state of the game and corresponding data files. If that old system state didn't hold your necromancer so far, but the account overview still does (e.g. because the rollback didn't affect the part wehere account info is saved), a message like that should appear.

    If that's the case, you necro doesn't exist anymore which might mean that everything you muled to him is gone as well. However, it might be worth to vcheck the characters from which you muled stuff to him. Perhaps it's on them again.
