    Is truth really stranger than fiction?

    Just had a rather interesting run through BRC on my mage and it was so funny i though i just had to share it. What made it even more interesting was the fact this was my second run with this tank/healer and the first run, which was also BRC went quick and smooth therefore i wasn't expecting any issues at all by joining the random finder with them again. Oh how wrong i was!


    So it was all going fine until we killed the first boss then after we killed it the tank/healer (i assume they are friends as were from the same realm and guild) started running back to the entrance...Eventually they returned and we moved on.

    We managed to get all the way to the second boss without any more issues and then the tank managed to pull the patrolling pack as well as the boss (note he pulled the pat fine then stumbled into the boss after?
    So i jumps into one of the beams and shouts for someone else to do the other (we were on normal so only 2) as it wasn't going to be pretty with 2 evolved, the boss and the patrolling pack all at once but no one even bats an eyelid. Luckily i managed to keep one from evolving and we just about survived the encounter...well the hunter and shammy DPS did.

    So we move on.

    Come to the 3rd boss and the fun and games start again. Starts off well then the healers accidentally stumbles into around 5 of the mobs around the edge and aggro's them all. We actually survive this and get the boss down, luckily the extra mobs are low health.
    Then...the tank and healer start running off to the teleporter, accidentally pulling 2 mobs on the way which they kill and then jump into the teleporter?
    I was asking why they kept going back to the start but they never said so why they kept wondering off like this i have no idea (noting that this is our second run as well so it wasn't like they were lost)

    So the boss is dead, the tank/healer are back and we move onto the next pack.i.e where there are 2 packs, one either side of the tunnel and the patrolling earth ragers.
    The tank pulls the left pack just as the pat is heading into it so we get both the pack and the pat and then he somehow stumbles into the 3rd pack as well. The tank and then the healer die leaving me, the hunter and the shammy DPS manage to wipe out all the mobs using CC, totems and some luck.

    Then we're on to beauty. The tank pulls the 1st pup fine but on the second he manages to pull both pups and the boss. I manage to sheep one of the pups and keep it sheeped for the whole encounter and we down the boss ok. We loot and the tank starts to run off...With the final pup still sheeped! Hellooo!

    We eventually kill the last pup and move out of beauty's cave and the tank pulls the first pack, again pulling the patrolling earth ragers but the only person to die is the healer, who releases and starts running back while we kill the rest.
    As we're waiting for the healer to run back the tank just casually stumbles into another pack of mobs...he doesn't pull them or even try to attack them, he just wondered in and died as we let him too it.

    We did the final boss, which amazingly went without a hitch, although to be honest there's not really anything that can go wrong.



    Does anyone else have any WoW stories you simply couldn't make up because they are just so unbelievable?

    I watched trade chat for more than 5 minutes.

    Here's my guess as to what happened: your two guys were handing in the Finkle quests, and didn't realize they could hand them in at a distance. A bit far-fetched, but that's the only explanation I can see for the running back stuff. As for weird stuff I've seen (excluding Goldshire Inn and the IF/SW underground), I won't comment, because by the end of WotLK, I was so bored with daily heroics that I decided to run them on all my characters with no pants on, inviting the rest of the group to do so so as to "not offend the pantless gods".
