The important question of course is: Did you take your armour off as well to join them?
Yes, you start without gear and you have to use that you find in the dungeon.Probably that was "Naked and afraid" RP. xD
Dang... I wish I could find a group for that. )
So... I'm not sure if this is a thing, some reddit sub forum prank or something, but, wow, the weirdest thing just happened to me. I'm queuing for my daily random, end up in fang Lair with 3 naked people. Honest, no armour, at all, just 3 of them running around in their skivvies... It was funny, a good bit of unexpected lightheartedness, regardless of the number of deaths to trash.
You need to gear upI did something similar when someone needed help with the Alik'r Mummy King, so I helped on a level 9 Sorc and boxed the thing to death. He gave me a /Bow at the end ahaha
