Everyone has to go AFK now and again during a raid or an instance group. Sometimes the AFK'er simply says "BRB" or "AFK a sec," but other times it's a bit more... involved, shall we say. "AFK, hair on fire." "BRB, cops at the door." "One sec, the cat just puked on the keyboard." These are all AFK excuses I've heard over the last few years, whether they be true or not.

What are some of the craziest AFK reasons you've ever heard over your WoW career?

Hmmm... I haven't heard that many to be honest :) I went AFK on the weekend because my dog stole a child's hat and wouldn't give it back (my dog has caused more than his fair share of AFK's!). The worst I think i ahve heard was "BRB I hope, my brother just got arrested". Yikes!

I guess I am always in the boring raids...

Those aren't 2 run-of-the-mill AFK announces, they both qualify!

On second thought, this could probably be rolled into Jagerbombz's idea

Raid Leader: "Alright here he comes. Misdirect to me, please"
*Entering Combat*
Main Healer: "AFK a sec"
Raid Leader: "Wait... what?"
*Leaving Combat*

Not really the same thing, but I can't forget this :)

Locking since it was decided this could be rolled into another Shared Topic Idea.
