You COULD think about what your characters would do in this situation. Or you could eschew natural character-driven decisions in favor of chasing whatever the DM seems to think is important. Hopefully they both lead to the same thing. Eventually.

Go with your instinct.

And then, of course, there's what real players would do: Go do whatever you feel like, whether or not your character or DM wants it. Seriously, that's half the fun of the game sometimes.

Something like eighty-nine percent of the time. Especially when you have spotted an opportunity to do something marvelously, spectacularly, and memorably ridiculous.

That's why certifiably mad characters are fun: ridiculous decisions are perfectly in-character! I bit a painting's lips off while avoiding its laser eyes, for crying out loud! (I know I just mentioned that a few pages ago, but it may take me a while to top it.)
