Leave them behind, I'm running!
In my last raid I was experiencing something I have not seen in a very very long time when raiding. We were running a 25-man Naxxramas (note, it was not a PUG-run!) and was up against Instructor Razuvious just before our raid time as about to run out. We had a new priest doing the Mind Control of the Death Knight Understudies and as expected we wiped a bit. But that is just fine and not the topic of concern here, you can need a few tries to get that right. But what amazed me during the tries was that on our last attempt I saw one player simply running away from the group back up the ramp after we had one player down early in the pull. Why the [black-tongue-generating-word] does anyone do that? Is it to costly to pay a few extra (virtual!) gold for the repair bill? Even if a try is not the best one, why not try to prolong it a bit at least to help the raid learn what needs to be learned? At least until the raid leader say something else. I have raided for a stupid amount of time, and I have hardly ever seen something that looks so selfish.
