lol, dude, I did the shiled bash thing yesterday in a pt where we were fighting Gobbies in Bibiki bay.

I have MBed Light before with Holy, but there's one thing even better: MBing with Flash.

And yes, intimidating an Undead always makes me giggle.

8 pages is a lot to read through, but here are my additions.

...when you tell the thief to SATA/Viper Bite off one of the DD's in the middle of a battle because "I can hold him on me!"
...when you enjoy the challenge of a PL trying to pull hate from you.
...when you have spoiled SATA by forgetting to fight the Voke/Flash instinct as the mob approaches the camp.
...when your shield kicks in and you take 20 damage, you laugh.

Heres a new one, I think.

While in a exp pt you go afk ,and know how long when to come back before you next hate maccro to hold hate.(yes i do this, but only for {bio}breaks)

You refuse to eat food because you dont want to become depenedent on food and become exremly urber when you do..... or is that just me.

a couple of new ones:

-You almost cry when you wear your jelly ring for the 1st time at 63. (Yep, big Galka crybaby - guilty)

-You get hit with Incinerate for 800 dmg, and you tell your party that it tickles (Which usually gets you /smacked by the whm)

-You're in a party at 64 with TWO war/nin and a blm, and you NEVER lose hate. (And your party is amazed)

-You ding 65, equip your shield torque and Tower shiled, then head up to Xarcabard to solo Demons for FUN (and get your 1st CS for Dynamis wOOt!)

More to add...

- You're pt leader and feel bad when the only lfp is a ninja...
...and you invite him and DEMAND he be DD.
(funny thing is he was very excited, and even subbed blm - best pt ever!)

- You've stood at the zone to any city and cast Protect III on people heading out...because its your duty to "protect" people.

- Every time you get a new piece of AF you get giddy, until you realize you must get sneak back up before the Platinum Quadav crushes your level 58 ***.

- Spirits Within @ 300% TP makes members of your party call you a DD Paladin (yeah right - check the log).

- When you're the only one in Eldieme, you get a sense of ownership.

- You have a macro for /salute to use on fellow paladins.

Just a couple to add:

- When you pull 800 dmg + with Vorpal Blade on a Too Weak mob and your fellow DRK who is farming with you and 12 levels higher than you does Gullitine for the same amount of damage, and your whole LS points and laughs at him!! Classic!!

- When you get invited to a party that just had a NIN tank, and after the first chain you get five friend invites. Including the BLM who just did an 800 magic burst and the mob doesnt even flinch at him.

Oh and just a side note, I held hate the other day when the WHM used Bene, without using Invin...it really does bring tears to your eyes!!

-you like it when mnk mobs in dynamis hundred fist you because it's a challenge.

-you scream "HIT ME! HIT ME!" at your computer screen while at your friend's house because you want shield skillups.

-you always try to get a pld in your party while leveling nin.

Good call.

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

You yell out "Shield skill!" or Shield skill, Shield level!" at the tv or at a friends house.

Haha. love this thread ^^

- when you encourage the whm to use benediction whenever they feel. You then remember the first time you kept hate when they did it and realise its now all part of the norm.

- You refuse to replace yourself in a pt with a nin because they are "fake tanks".

- You have the term {meat} {shield} in your looking for party comments.

- You get loads of {party} {do you need it?} /tell's from other pld's who also refuse to put a nin into their position when they leave.

-You have at least 1 screen shot of you dead in every XP location youv'e ever been to.
-Your biggest dream is to tank {Insert Huge NM name here} with no back up tank... just because he's there.
-As soon as you get Auto-Refresh at 35, you get a Red Mage friend to Refresh you, Even if your not doing anything, then go off and Fight something Silly. Just so you can get used to it.
-You arange to get the Parade Gorget 17 levels before you can actually use it.
-You buy a Sword/Armor more than 10 levels before you can use it, just because it looked kinda useful and it was cheapish (I got a Durandel at level 27 >.<)

and Finally

You know you've been a Paladin too long, if you've posted more than once in this thread and still think of things to add.

-When you argue to your ls that pld is a decent healer with /whm and a decent DD with /nin.

- When the #1 reason you're glad to get your relic armor from dynamis is not because it's better, but because you dont have to wear purple anymore.

-When you try to grab hate while leveling whm, and you dont see how there's anything wrong with that.

-When any time you beat your warrior or monk friend's damage on a weapon skill, you feel the need to point it out and harrass them.

-when you think about reaching 75 getting all your merits then deleveling back
to level 10 just to see how much fun you can have.(was just seriously
comtemplating this)

-when you argo everything on your way to zone even though they are {Too Weak}
and laugh when you zone out with red HP and have your healer say "Why do you
have 43hp @.@"(i did this on my 75THF in Xarcabard XD wish i could have done
as PLD)
