I emphatically agree about not joining a PUG if you know you're in a rush. I've done some heroics and normals where I ask if we can do a non-mandatory boss, and everyone agrees except one guy (sorry, it's usually the tank) who says "Nope, I got a raid in 20" or "No time, only here for VP" and there's this awkward kind of pause where everyone decides if they're siding with the one guy who veto'd or the 4/5 who were okay with it.And sadly, most people will side with the tank whatever, so I either have to finish and requeue for my drop/quest, decide if I think being more firm will sway folks, or trying my luck with a kick (and dropping if it fails). I'm personally just fine with afk's mid fight in a five man. Things like a child waking up and wanting mommy/daddy or the like. Life happens. I've had to emergency afk mid fight a few times because my cat started harfing on my bed and I want to get her to the floor before she chucks where it's not an all-night project to clean up. A hardwood floor wheathers cat puke so much more easily than a mattress and my blankets, you see.Or work calling unexpectedly asking me to come in. There's only a few numbers I would immediately pick up for, and that number's one of them. Sorry.But stuff like phone, pizza delivery, and bio/snack breaks mid fight? Nu uh. No way bucko. You either queue after the pizza arrives or you wait till the instance is over.
