The entire process lasted about a full minute before my character was finally dropped from the game. We were on Mp0 so I remained at 100% HP (despite standing in desecrate the entire time) until my inspiring presence buff ended. After that ended my buddy was keeping me posted as my health went down over skype so I knew what was going on. I was down to about 25% HP and I was starting to panic just as he tells me that a health globe dropped and that he got me back to about 50% HP. From there I went back down to about 25-30% HP again by the time it finally booted me from the game. He definitely saved me.
The entire time, on my screen, it looked like I was in the game at full health and nothing was moving or attacking. I wasn't sure what to do in that situation which brought me to this question:
What do you do when you are sure you are experiencing a disconnect?
1) Wait it out and hope the lag clears
2) Alt+F4 and log back in as quickly as possible
3) Something else - please explain.
Luckily I dodged a bullet today and live to fight another day. Just trying to decide how I should react if/when I find myself in the same situation again in the future. I know there is no sure-fire way to avoid death from a disconnect but I would like to have the best possible reaction when I come across that situation again.
