It always happens, it's unavoidable, what's the worst timing of a disconnect ever happen in your raid? Can be to your personally or someone else in raid.

I would have to say on KT, during an immortal run. In a void zone. Yeah, people weren't too happy when my net came back an hour later.

Oceanic internet, fun stuff.

I DC'd during heroic nef, on top of one of the little platforms that come up when the room fills with lava.

The lava dropped, everybody got in position, but I wasn't there to tank the dragon. XD

We always seem to have people DC when we're on the verge of killing a new boss.

DC'd and wiped us on one of our first "almost kills" of H windlord.

It was actually quite ironic, I was just saying about 2 minutes before hand how I'd never had a wind bomb thrown at me whilst we were progging on him.

DC, proceed to have a wind bomb thrown at me.

You win this round Mel'jarak...

Didnt DC...

but had a massive 10000 ping lag spike during Heroic Ambershaper last night. Suddenly everything caught up just in time to see myself reshaped into a construct. After I got out of the construct 30 or so seconds later i started lagging into 10k ping again....

So although everything was good and we killed the boss, It would have been the worst DC for me if I ever DC'ed

I had this happen, but I somehow still pulled off the 3-2-2 and interrupted self without a problem.

I dc'd and crushed us on H garalon monday.

The worst thing to come of it ended up being that the log was invalid though.

When we were progressing our priest had some terrible lag though, to the point of hilarity. "I think I'm lagged out"...."Oh, I'm dead?"..(As we're running back)"I'm still watching you guys fight the boss"

Thank Blizzard for spell queuing while you're lagging.

I once DC'd while tanking XT. Came back about 30 seconds later and I still had aggro. That was pretty sweet.

Best DC I've ever seen is Paragon's LK tank disconnecting almost immediately after the pull on the world first.

We were doing TOGC 10 on an offnight, and during facton champions our shaman dc'd, reconnected to vent and whatever, about 20 mins later, as valks died, we heard them saying "Do you want me to hex the warrior?" "Guys I think I'm lagging, trying to interrupt the paladin", and we thought he was being stupid, but then he talked while the lag artifacts kept talking.

Not a "Bad DC", but probably the funniest

When the boss is sub 5%, resulting in a wipe.

The worst are always those cases where it's a boss you've been wiping on, but you finally have it down. It feels great. The team is nailing everything. You feel in your heart that this is it, you're going to get that kill.

Nope.

Had that while tanking the gauntlet portion of Thorim. We weren't having an especially good time of it, but this one felt good. From what I could hear in Vent, the Arena folks we doing just fine, and me and the guantlet folks were doing a great job making our way through the caves. Disconnected.

Currently, I think one of our guild's tank has had no fewer than three DCs during Elegon. Everything is going fine, until we realize he's still standing on the platform when it's about to drop. Bye bye!

Raid group, but not technically a raid. Galleon had FINALLY come up at a time when I wasn't at work. In a group, ready to go.....

and D/C.

Log back on, Galleon dead, no loot, no achieve, no nothin'.

Grrrrrrrrrr.

first few seconds of pulling the boss as the tank.
Right before a tank swap is to happen.
when a platform or similar ground is about to despawn as part of the fight mechanic (outer rim of the platform on LK for example, or in EOE right before the drakes show up)
during defile
during a rather tight burn phase where losing 1 dps is the different between downing it and not downing it (armor plate phases on spine of deathwing, before the progressive nerfs got too high)
