Let me first start out by saying that Real Life happens. No matter what happens in the World of Warcraft, there are times when real life can and should take priority over this silly game that so many of us play. That said...
Since we didn't get in a Karazhan run this past weekend, we decided to get our members and throw in a quick run to at least kill Attumen last night before the instance resets this morning. Like almost always, we didn't have the ideal group situation, but for Attumen, we would be fine. After a miscommunication, but recovery, on the first pull, we easily stroll in to Attumen. The fight is explained to the new people and we're about to pull. One of the priests basically says, "I'm sorry guys, afk real quick." So, we wait. And wait. And wait. Nobody, I mean, nobody would go afk right before a boss fight like that. Not to mention that there would soon (about 20 minutes after killing them) be respawns that would force us to re-kill everything. By this point, we were just hoping that everything was okay with the guy. We didn't have another healer online, and nobody seemed to be LFG for Karazhan.
Long story, short. We tried to kill Attumen with 9 people after we fought the respawn once and it failed pretty miserably. The guy came back and told us that his brother's dog ran away and they had to go find him. So, hopefully tonight will be a little better. I forgot to ask, but I hope the guy's dog is okay.
So, what are some of your favorite afk stories?
