So apparently Tenris Whats-His-Face is still in Kara. Not sure why - Blizzard said he would be around for "about 10 days" which coincided approximately with Tuesday's reset, which is why I assumed I had missed my chance.
Then a friend told me on Wednesday that he had just killed the boss again. After I stopped hyperventilating I posted a very eloquent thread on my guild forums to politely ask for assistance to go and get my pet bat. *cough*
We went in after Sunwell and I kept bouncing on the spot to show I was still online. We started the fight, and about 10 seconds in, I disconnected AGAIN. What is up with my net, geez..
But.. I was there for the pull, and made it back just as he died, so I got my bat. Everyone cheered and we all went home, the end!
<3 to my guildies for accommodating me :P
