Most people afk in town, and most people doesn't know that in Diablo 3 the monsters actually can follow you into town and attack afk characters.

Maybe in normal mode it would be something nice to laugh able it,

but in hardcore watch your screen turn red after you just come back it is really a tear drop moment and rage kicking your screen!

PLEASE DON'T AFK IN TOWN, learn my lesson.

1) I didn't know this was possible.

2) Where and how did you manage this? I think A1 is the only area where it *might* be possible if you kite mobs back to town, since I don't think monsters can pass through loading screens; can they? o_O

In act 1 they can, act 2 they can in the "main" city but not the hidden camp, act 3 they cant but there will be monsters spawning inside the city once during a mission so.

You are never really safe :D only in hidden camp.

Yeah but monsters won't randomly spawn if you just afk. I think so at least. You'll have to either kite them there or go afk after they already spawned and noticed you.

Yeah sad story. But have you ever thought about how town afkers make everything more difficult for everybody? Yesterday I was doing Act2 nm with a group of 4 with one guy beeing afk in town for quite a while. We still kept playing and at some point the dh in our group got killed by a vortex boss. After finishing the boss I left the game. I didn't want myself to die because some selfish bastard was tabbed out surfing on fb instead of helping the group. Such behavior makes me mad cuz it makes things far more difficult for everyone and blocks 1 party spot for someone who actaully wants to play. So please if you go afk for more than just a moment then don't be a seflsh #!#% and just leave the game.

Slight Spoilers:

In Act 3, after you finish defending the walls of the keep and have to go to the lower halls, 3 demon grunts spawn in the city, and a tenacious griefer could probably kite them to an AFK player and kill them.

In Act 1, you're fair game at all times in town.

In Act 2, you're totally safe in the Hidden Camp part of town, but can be killed in the main part of town.

In Act 4, you're totally safe in town.
