Trion, have you EVER tried using your training dummies? I doubt it.

How to get stuck in combat for the unforseeable future:

Step 1: Attack training dummy.
Step 2: Have some random nub attack nearby dummy.
Step 3: Wait until random nub is done attacking, no matter when you stopped attacking yourself. Just hope that none of your WF/instance queues come up.

This has been bugging me since like day 3 of Rift. Bug/bad implementation is still around.
