You know you've been a pld too long when...

- you know exactly how long 30 seconds is without having to actually count.
- you hit the provoke macro upon engaging someone in Ballista.
- you cannot understand what is so scary about having red hp.
- you have mysteriously grown addicted to the colour white.
- you have mastered the art of engaging, provoking and flashing a mob within 1/100th of a second.
- any other job has too little defense for your taste.
- you feel natural getting hit when you draw aggro while levelling your blm.
- you've become used to seeing a rdm farm faster than you do.
- intimidating an undead creature gives you an inexplicable surge of delight.
- tanking 3 mobs at 30 hp while the blm casts escape feels fun.
- you feel sad whenever you don't die in dynamis.
- you start getting depressed if a mage dies before you do.
- you fall in love with the rdm in your party.
- the Rampart/Savage Blade animation sends shivers down your spine.
- you walk in dark places and gleefully note how well you show up in them in your AF.
- you walk in Valkurm and and revel in the fact that you almost match the sand.
- the sound of your armour when it clinks on hard surfaces is music to the ears.
- you spend time in your moghouse just walking around admiring your armour.
- anything with VIT or Enmity beside a large number makes you start grinning :DDDDD
- you /salute a fellow paladin friend and neither of you think it's corny.
- you feel like buying the Ritter Shield just for that 'big shield+paladin' goodness.
- and you have a Koenig/Kaiser Shield.
- you level pld to 75 and feel like levelling it all over again on your mule.
- you used Holy Circle while levelling in Valkurm just to show you were a paladin.
- you cried in happiness upon holding off your first Benediction without using Invincible.

I'm bored. *'-')/ Feel free to add more.

- you know that you should wear Beak Jerkin +1 at level 58, but refuse to be seen in lizard armor
- you throw up Defender out of habit even while farming a Too Weak mob
- you yell at the WHM for casting Flash
- you try to Shield Bash your BLM when he starts casting Ancient Magic
- you equip sword and shield while leveling NIN
- you try to cover your mage when you're both waiting at home point and a Galka comes running up to get signet
- or you try to Flash him
- you're mad that your new Diamond Shield not only doesn't sparkle, but it looks just like your cheap old shield

You know you've been a pld too long when...

You have a spreadsheet of all armor combinations from your lvl to 75 to compare Defense vs. Vitality gains. - Guilty

You check your equipment after using a job ability/food/protect to see what your def gain was. - Guilty

When you find yourself emoting that you provoke a player character off a friend when they are bothering them.

When you are lvl 61 and still go to Qufim on occasion to kill wights and banshees to show off your sweet AF armor - Guilty

- You find yourself using provoke every 30 seconds... while farming...
- You've made macros to explain how your party should react to the 'Cover' ability
- You've ever told your puller "Pull whatever you want, I'll tank it."
- You use Paladin as your subjob when you have to level Warrior, what other job would you use?!?
- You look fondly on your White Mage days as training for Paladin

if you walk around with Earth Staff equipped just because you like the way it looks..

you always carry 2 sets of armor and 2 swords, and 5 other weapons...

you buy a new shield/armor/weapon and put it in you bazaar for 99,999,999 just so ppl know you have it for the next lvl....

you refuse to lvl unless you have a stack of Steamed Crab....

you run to town, sub whm, and run to qufim so you can raise ppl and look cool in your AF while doing it....

you run around valkurm or qufim playing "Hero" saving ppl.

You tell your LS your going fishing on the boat and you forget your fishing rod just so you can fight pirates...

You lvl your whm in kazam just so you can run to nomad moogle and change to PLD/WRRto kill the gob trains and here your PT say OOOOO look at his HP

You try to take out a mob of Crawlers at zone of CN even tho it will kill you for it would be a shame not to try

-_-" but but but I'm only lvl 52................. hehehe man all these are so true..... I checked my def last night when I did protect III +food + sentinel + defender 501 ^.^

Ok let me try add on,

-You'll want to keep your Kite Shield for sentimental value, and if you sold it off some time ago you'll want to buy 1 back for keeps sake :P

-You always end up standing in the frontline with the melee when leveling your mage and go "Wait I'm not PLD -.-" "

- When you're leveling WHM you're standing there after the battle instead of healing expecting refresh to be cast on you

-You know all the equipment that is good for a Paladin like the back of your hands

-Go "Now that's a fellow Paladin" without checking his job and level, just by looking at the pixels on screen you know it :P

-edit-
Not just the 1st time you pull off Benidiction without 2 hr :P
I'm happy everytime, ask Arislan and it was just 2 Cure III on him ^_^.... Oppps there I go again :P

- stand in the middle of the melee. Not to the left or right of them..jus to feel like your the strongest one :)..idk maybe thats jus me lol

- had to teach EVERY paladin in your parties, when leveling your subs in the dunes how to tank PROPERLY

- flip out when the white mage is cure happy and doesnt leave you space to cure yourself to hold aggro

- have to tell all the n00bs you party with, what job and level you are jus to show off.

been a pld too long??!?!?!?! never!

well, i'm still young so maybe my mind will be changed later


-when leveling your whm, you cure3 w/o fear, until you realize you're getting hit for lots of dmg ^^

-when playing blm, and something agros, you blast as much hate as you can and die while trying to zone the mob for your pt's safety ^^

-when your actually happy about a death b/c noone could pull it off you ^^

(this next one is bad but today midgardsormr had only pld's my age seeking, no dmg dealers of any sort, 4 pld's plus me seeking, twas very odd, so 2 pld's in pt was unavoidable)

-when you enjoy winning hate wars w/ a 2nd pld in your pt (or a war who thinks he can outtank you for that matter ^^)



omg, the voke one i'm guilty of all the time (ALL OF THE TIME) [when pld/thf try to voke many time before realizing why it's not working]

party with a nin, let him build hate for a few, then voke once and pull the mob off him :)

when lvling a sub you voke a mob off pt member while yor hp is red and his just dropped into yellow.
