When your computer dies for months and the first thing you do upon returning is checking the 'You know you've been a pld too long when...' thread.

you watched our weaponset go from staves to sword and board and are now reading rumblings that staves/gs may be making a comeback for tanking

(haven't suited up pld since the update so i haven't tested the damage output of staff yet)

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

-A higher lvl PLD is near and tells you to stop examining him so much

-You let the NIN in your pt die once, just so he'll get the point

-When the "Weakened" state is no longer a set back, but a feeling of "job well done"

-While in town you /shout "May the power of Christ compel you!" then use Holy Circle
(I love doing that)

Today I was in a pt in CN, and our puller was killed by the Soldier Crawler he grabbed before he could make it back to camp, so while he was resting from being weak I was asked to pull for the next round, so I did. I used Flash on one Soldier Crawler and it got linked by two others. I let the pt know and I started to run back to the camp just far enough so the whm could raise me without her being in any danger.
After I was killed the party was all like, **********! Oh no! (/em cry), blah blah...I then said, "Cool, it took three of them to kill me!"
They thought that was hilarious. It livened things up a bit.

When your lvling rdm and right as you get phalanx and stoneskin you decide with capped enhancing you want to tank rdm/war. Pt gave me **** when I suggested it but ****... it worked.

Sure, why not? I'll post some of mine...

-party gets a little too overzealous trying to outpull another group that just arrived, and ends up with a continuous supply of agro and links for an epic fight with no downtime. You manage to defeat every single mob without anyone using a 2hr, and kept hate flawlessly despite having only a 2 tick refresh.

-after you finish with aforementioned epic battle, you turn around and say, "Aww, no more?"

-the whm says she not gonna bother to put up re-raise any more. ("Waste of MP," she says) :P

-you are the only one hit with gob bombs (with exceptions, suicide bombers) and still get back to the gob before it even takes a step.

-you enjoy having the thf SATA viper bite the blue mage... just so you can finally use your cover macro.

And finally...

-you can't get through one party without getting at least one request to be added to friend list.

-you were posting in this thread before you started leveling blm and now have it at 75 also

-seek this thread out to bump it back to the top cause you are tired of the same "waht DD gerz shud i buy" threads that people create cause they are too lazy to scroll 5 threads down to read that thread rather than creating a new one.

My two cents in this topic... and maybe a rarity for those that can appreciate it...
you've been a pld too long when...
-another pld in your party wonders why you have two customized "Cover" macro's for the DRK you've leveled exclusively with from 13->75 and then is the first one to send you a tell moments after you logon "What was that macro you used for your friend"?
-as a drg/rdm you say... pfft, i can tank in assault!
-you /random against other pld's and gloat when you've won the exclusive right to be the 1st meatshield against any sorta boss..... then talk smack while you're watching the rest of the battle from a very grounded position

-when you have mentally trained yourself to calculate the mobs tp gain based on it's delay, how many times it's hit you, and how much tp it gains from being hit instantly so you can then flash right before the mob fires off a tp move.

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

You're driving down the road, and hit the cruise control, thinking its gonna give a read out of what lvl of difficulty the oncoming car is (The mini-van is Impossible to Guage) >.<

You dreams are overcome by the sound of Provoke.

You spend your day at work fantasising about getting an Ares Cuirass.

You wonder why a 64 +1 Sword outdoes a lvl 72 Sword. (Seriously, SE needs to give their heads a shake... I mean its obvious even with Soboro VS Hagun.)

You look forward to surviving the doll's Meltdown in Sky, while the rest of the alliance is dropped in 1 shot. Then you get to raise the WHM ^^

You look forward to shouting "Bring out you're dead" while raising the WHM.

You feel your armor is dusty and you need new gear.

Guilty, guilty and Guilty,

having a lunch and tankig
pressing macro, while dipping fries in ketchup
pressing sentinenl macro, even if u just pressed it
respect other plds, but they are still your competitors
replacing other plds in pt, as a must
just keep looking to your character, when u purchase new gear
you are sure that Provoke is PLD's JA ;)

You remember wondering why your friends PLD wasn't using an Earth Staff

You remember wondering why your friends PLD was using an Earth Staff



You frequently get compliments tanking on your WAR

Your friends refuse to come help with something unless you're tanking it


You realize that its people like everyone in this topic that helped you become a better PLD, that helped you really maximize the jobs potential by taking a tip here and there and combining it all together
