    Just keep trying; it'll log you in eventually.
    If not, do your standard clearing of WTF files, etc. I had the issue levelling the other day, took me three or four tries before it let me back in.

    It'll probably deposit you somewhere that isn't where you originally were, however - I ended up jumping from Burning Steppes to the graveyard behind Karazhan (it's to do with where the game thinks you are - the error is caused by the server and your computer disagreeing about where the character should be).
    Looking for Raid: you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Come - we must be cautious.

    Aye. Keep trying, eventually it'll kick in.

    I get this problem frequently. I also get frequent problems logging in.
    A temporary solution is to remove the WTF folder. But I usually just relog and try again.
