- you get bored and run around jeuno and whitegate hoping someone will ask for help in {The Eldieme Necropolis} just 'cause you know you can take anything down there. And you intimidate all of them.

As a tarutaru you relish at the fact that you have MORE mp than most lv 75 Plds when you are lv 35 ^%^

When you opt out of having a bow and Arrow to have a LuckyEgg for the +1% mp and 1 vit.

My main is Whm, so its a Culture shock going from whm to Pld. SO...

You get Joy from vokeing, flashing and curing others JUST TO GET hate.

You miss having Cure 3 at lv 21 O.o Cure 2 does nothing.

You often wish Paladin had poisona in Crawlers nest so you could remove it instead of relying on the Whm.

After doing gear swaps, protects and or Foods, you check to se how much your Def goes up by.

You laugh that as a lv 40 Pld, you have more DEF then a lv 75 whm.

You know you have been playing Pld too long when you feel at home when changing to that job. (or any job that can use a shield, cure and flash)

You have been a paladin to long when..hitting 800 defense is a normal thing.
You cry if the monster 1 shots you.
You use sentinel to grab hate while PLing
Try to shield bash while skilling up a 2h weapon.
You use sword and shield on another job, just to look cool.

You think a Gluttony Sword and full adaman is good to use in merit parties.

I think that's more of a "haven't been a PLD long enough" thing.

I don't. There's a surplus of old school PLDs that haven't merited much at all since the Shield, Sentinel, and Rampart changes who have no clue on how to play the job to its potential anymore.

- You've been a PLD for too long when you invite one guy, give him leader and order him to make a pt, or else he loses his tank.

**** I'm evil-minded :D actually knew the guy lol

When you're attempting to level a dd job, you always end up tanking cause your pt feels as if you've done this before.

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

Jobs that have the capability to equip shields, but don't, absolutely horrify you (a bst using a scythe!? /faint)

On a related note:
Whenever lower lvl players in your social ls ask for gear advice you always tell them to use a shield - even though they're lvling blm >.<"

You see someone getting aggro from some drunken youths outside a bar, and you start slinging insults to provoke th drunkards, before heroically taking a pasting!

A friend of mine actually did this --- and claimed it was because he's so used to taking the hate as pld.
