Well, I thought I'd seen it all. Apparently not. This morning my Pally took the "plane" from Dalaran to the Skybreaker ship in Icecrown. A simple taxi ride, rite?? I went AFK, of course, but when I got back... surprise!!! I was lying dead on the ground somewhere below where the ship was supposed to be. So with a 4G repair bill and pissed, I wrote Blizzard a ticket. Now mind you, I wouldn't care about the repair bill if it was my fault but this is really stupid.
So what happened? I have no idea. Perhaps the plane missed the "landing pad". Perhaps it passed through a "hole" in the world. If my Pally fell from that height and I would have been at my desk, it would have been a simple matter to bubble and save myself. Unfortunately, there was no warning. It might also be that my realm being laggy had something to do with this.
I would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this. It seems that the plane is definitely bugged because another time I took the same ride with my Hunter from Dalaran and right after the plane left I realized I wasn't supposed to go to Icecrown but rather Storm Peaks. I had meant to take the regular taxi. So I exited the game believing that on logging back in I would be placed where I started from, i.e. in Dalaran. If I recall correctly, that's how normal taxis work: if you get disconnected, you will find yourself back at your starting point. When I logged back in, I found myself dead, outside Dalaran's parapets, with no way to reach my corpse. Spirit Res is so much fun!
