Great article Bowers. Thanks!Quick question. We've had a running joke in our guild about a hunter friend of mine, who went DC during a boss fight in Molten Core. Even though he was DC'd, and told us so through vent, his toon kept on shooting the boss.We didn't have the foresight to check the combat logs, but instead assumed he was doing damage to the boss as a hunter, even while DC. (we always joke that you can raid with a hunter while watching simpsons... in another room.) :)Anyways, when you loose connection, and your toon keeps shooting, is it actually doing damage to the mob?Boom

Ya i can say it does. For about 18 months i did contract work in Kuwait and played with an average latency of 2000 (yes that was 3 zeros). Sometimes up to 4000 and higher. I got pretty good at latency playing. Of course this meant no group runs or PVP but i could grind away usually to my heart's content. often I would hit a lag spike of 30 sec to a min (if i was lucky) as soon as I attacked something. Send in my pet and cast arcane shot and lag out. When I caught up to the server finally usually my mob was dead. Of course, about a 3rd of the time I was dead from some other mob that was now no where to be seen. Such is life.
