I have a question!I'm not on the best connection around and sometimes face disconnections during the evenings. Sometimes this can happen just before a boss is downed. When I get back online and the looting is taking place, if its on group loot I can't take part anymore as I don't get to see the little window.I don't suppose there is a way to force this back up or a little command so I can roll on the loots? Or has it ever been mentioned to the Dev's if not?

If you raid, the best solution for you is to probably have Master Looter and /roll for gear.That mechanic is a bit excessive for 5-mans, though.

No such accomidation. However, if you're all passing and free-rolling, all you have to do is wait. Your roll will eventually time out, allowing the loot to be picked up directly off the boss's body.Or, you could ask your RL to leave it on master loot- all it takes to ruin an evening is someone accidentally clicking Need instead of Pass (which can be a problem for anyone who has their loot windows scaled down). Obviously, you can contact a GM and have the loot transferred, but that can take up to 4-5 hours.

Hi,I don't have the best connection in the world, but i'm have disconnections on some specifics events.Mainly is on 25 man raids. All goes normal on 10 man raids or 5 man heroics, but on 25 man... i have disconnections even if is nothing happening, like everybody is waiting before one pull. It's just put me on a situation that i can't progress anymore, i'm stuck on 10 man raids and gear(ok, i don't have all that super gear).Is anybody having the same problem?Take care u all!

Might i suggest you getting a Minimalist UI (you can get one from wowinterface.com), it sounds like you have to much stuff going on at one time, also clicking on your combat log then right clicking it and putting delete/turn off this window might help you with that issue, its worked wonders for me :P

I'm having a similar problem as some of the commenters. Yesterday in Naxx 25 my girlfriend was continually getting disconnected (we play on the same connection) then when we went to Sarth 25 both of us were getting disconnected every five minutes or so. Pretty stressful, especially when you're tanking a drake (fortunately, the MT saved us from a wipe while we were offline). Is this something know? Remnants from the awful 25 man lag I'd heard so much about?

Thanks for the advice Corth!I'm using a lot addons(omen, recount, bartender4, fubar(and sub-addons), X-Perl, banktitens, actioner, gatherer, cartographer, shockandawe and others).Any idea for X-perl replacement?

If somebody disconnects, nobody should loot until they log back on. Should solve the problem.
