It happens to the best of us. But yes, the boss should despawn that fast -- there would always be some person, some group, some team that would want it up for just a second longer. So Blizzard made a call and said as soon as the last person dies, that's that. In my opinion, that's the correct call to make.
But, more so, take a look at what your group is doing. If you're getting the boss down to 20k, chances are you just need to make one minor adjustment and then you'll be good. But at the same time, dead is not dead. Chin up; you're close, and you can get it!
Q for Q: With the launch of Cata I managed to get my girlfriend to play WoW and she's been hooked since. She is also a big reader but isn't familiar with alot of the Warcraft lore. I was curious to know if the WoW books are approachable for someone with very limited lore knowledge or do they assume you know all the major players?
I recommend reading them in chronological order; it helps make things easier to understand. And ... we happen to have a handy guide for you to read explaining just that!
Why are there turtles?
They wondered into some ooze and are now dedicated to ending the evil antics of Shredder.
do you have any idea when patch 4.3 will hit the U.K ?
There's been no official announcement. But, current bets are on Dec. 6 (Tuesday) in the United States and Dec. 7 (Wednesday) in the EU.
Why do you think there is a level 2 (or better) restriction on guild transfers?
There's a lot of reasons, but mainly to stop personal bank alt guilds from flooding the transfer system and moving around massive amounts of wealth at a seeming whim.
