Have you ever logged in and wondering where am I? Or ported out of an instance after a random and don't quite remember the place you are in as the place you were in when you entered?
Usually I chalk it up to someone drank a little too much the night before. Someone in my guild logged in the other day and they were in ironforge. They said, what the hell am I doing here? I said, were you drinking last night. She said, no.
Most times I would think that has to be the reason but even without drinking we sometimes find ourselves in weird places. One night while raiding back in T14 one of the people DCed during a fight. Of course they died but we went on and finished the fight. When they came back online they released and were at a graveyard in redridge. In redridge? Yes. That secondary zone near the human starting area. WTF?
I remember back in wrath leveling my warrior when I charged a mob and the ground glitched out and not only did my charge miss the mob but I missed the ground too. I just kept going right through the ground. Oddly enough I started to get a breath bar. Underground is filled with water in case you never knew that. I began to swim wondering if there would be some way to get out of here but there wasn't.
I ended up drowning and guess where my graveyard was? At the horde base in dragonblight. I was on a dwarf, one that of course could not get back to his body as it was under the ground somewhere and judging by looking at the map that somewhere was not even in dragonblight even if I started my charge in dragonblight and the graveyard it put me at in dragonblight. So needless to say I had to take resurrection sickness and got my butt handed to me again because apparently the horde do not approve of dwarves reviving in their base.
I once logged into my mage falling. Thank god for slow fall and the reaction fast enough to hit it but where the hell was I falling from and more importantly, how the hell did I get this high up. I was so high up I needed to hit slowfall 3 times before I landed. Yes, three times.
There have been many times I logged into a character and I can reasonably understand why I was there. Like when I recently logged on to my death knight and I was on the isle of thunder standing where goda spawns and he was there, which was an interesting way to log in. At first I thought, what am I doing here but then I remembered that I was on my way to buy a piece of valor gear when someone needed some help and I switched to help them and just must have not went back.
Other times I logged into a character, like my druid not so long ago, and I was flying in bird form over dalaran. What the hell was I doing in dalaran. I tried to think of why I might have been there. Was I soloing some old raids and just left myself there? Did we do some old raids as a guild maybe? Did I happen to run across one of those dalaran jewelcrafting things and was turning it in? Was I in the area looking for the Valk pet? I am sure there had to be a reason I was there but I would be damned if I could remember what it was.
I logged into my hunter one day in the middle of org. I am a night elf. Not one of the best places to "surprise" log into. Oh yeah, I was trying to fish up that stupid fish that still eludes me to this day. But I could swear I had hearthed back before I logged out. Guess not.
Have you ever logged in and thought "Where the hell am I?"
