Anyone ever encounter this scenario?

    Was in a group of 3 players and 3 mercs in ROS.
    Group was fighting a named.
    all was dead except a shaman and a heal merc
    Named was also almost dead but shaman was able to throw in a few dots and died.
    while on corpse floating, the Named killed the last heal merc and then died to the shaman dots.
    Then everyone CF back and rez up. Named was gone, died from the dots but doesn't leave a corpse.

    so in this scenario, it this suppose to be like this? or is it a bug?

    I haven't seen that specifically, with group and mercs and all.

    But when a creature dies to my DoTs after I've died or left the zone, it's normal for it to leave no corpse (and give no xp).

    Yes, since the dots killed it while you were dead it has no one to apply it to, so it poofs

    but then, camped it for hours and then finally pop and this happened..

    As maining a necro for years, I am well aware of this problem.

    If a mob dies by dots with you dead (and all group members; which was never the case , since I was a necro [and nobody ever grouped a necro]), the mob's corpse will disappear immediately.

    Your shaman should have known this beforehand. Your shaman should also have Call of the Wild the 2 group members immediately.

    But I just strongly advise you to rez to bind immediately when you wipe -- the shaman dots have a lingering effect that causes a much stronger dot after ~2 minutes: the dot is essentially 4 - 5 minutes in total, but the mob will go back to it's spawn point and regen its health quickly and not die by the dots.

    In the old days, that happened to us quite a few times. I think that's programmed like that to stop an exploit. I think that goes back to the Velious days when we had to use everything we had to kill mobs.

    That's my #1 complaint on merc clerics. If someone's dead, you get them up ASAP. You'd think with max merc healer AAs, they'd have a rez AA that could be triggered during battle.

    Sad, but /agreed, working as intended...
