So I was doing random exploring when I found a Lo rune and about 5 minutes later after I made a +25 res fortitude. My game froze and I left the game and was unable to join for a few minutes. I assume the server was rolled back, but I did absolutely nothing to cause it and lost my Fortitude AND Lo rune. I just came back to D2 and was wondering what if there is anything I can do to recover them or if it is a bug I can do nothing about.
Afaik, if the server you're playing on crashes, the last 'saved' state of your character is restored. The char state is saved every 5 minutes iirc; there may be other ways of saving, too, but I'm not sure about this. Always exit trade games and Dclone games immediately after getting the stuff you want in order to avoid rollback.

Dclone walks seem to cause inherent instability on the server, probably due to some glitch or other in the programming of the Dclone event. Not always, but very commonly the games crash immediately when Dclone spawns, taking the whole server down. Other than that it may be too many people on one server, or just some random hiccup (D2 is not exactly stellarly programmed). Mind you, I know next to nothing about programming or computers, but this is what I've been told over the years.
