-When you decide to make a bridge out of matches and glue while bored in the party tanking, and still hold hate.
-When you motto for the puller/party when they ask "Should we do these yet?" is "If you pull it, I'll tank it"
regardless of if it is far above that level range.
-When you are on a DD job and feel weird LETTING someone else tank.
- When you refer to the hate as yours and you only let others have a little sometimes.

Herro! I love this thread SO much, but I don;t have the patience to sit down and READ all of the great things in it, but I have some to add that I've found to happen to me.

First off, I'm a tarutaru AND a girl so:
-So you you've been playing a paladin too long when you're voke macro says "I'm short, I'm a girl, and I'm adorable...COME HIT ME!"
-You make fun of the Elvaan Samurai for not being to take hate from a pld that doesn't even make it past his knees.
-You decide to wear your AF gear on a date instead of Opaline...cause really...Gallant gear is its own shade of white, and no...it doesn't make you look fat.

Just general things:
-You're lfping in (insert area) as WAR and you find someone low on HP, you go to cureIII, ProtIII, and ShellIII them for the **** of it out of habit.
-You get really sad when you open your magic menu and there's no spells there
-You run to teh nearest moogle to CHANGE to pld, then run back and hope they're still there
-You started farming in places like Delfukkt's tower when things were still Checking DC to you.
-Whereever you go you keep an eye out for NMs, just so you can solo them, even as /thf.
-You brag when you kill it and get the drop.
-You /wave /cheer /salute every PLD you see.
-More then 75% of you Friends list is other paladins
-You talk to them all the time about how cool it is to be a paladin, and laugh at them when they are leveling other jobs
-Youlve tried leveling other jobs after you've been playing paladin, got frustrated by feeling so lame, changed back to paladin and just ran around pwning [Too weak] mobs.

Well thats all I got for now, I hope that not all of them were repeats! Keep on keeping on my awesome paladin brethren!

old school still works and does it very well thank you very much.



You know you've been a pld too long when:
- Even though you have 7 level 75 jobs, the only job you have gear sets at level 30/40/50/60 are pld, just incase there is a level cap fight that needs tanking.

- when the sam/drg/war/mnk/drk that gets invited to your party says "finally i can use <insert job ability>"

- when the first things you merited were max hp's, vit, sword, shield and emnity.

- you also levelled nin just so you could tank more...

- no matter how many 75 level jobs you have, PLD is always first on the list when telling anyone.

- Regardless of your status or job levels, most if not all of your greatest accomplishments have been as a PLD.

Those 2 are really good, I like them.

- No matter what you're doing, people just assume that you're showing up on PLD.

- You can't stand spending 5 minutes deciding what to do for dinner, but you'll spend hours debating the smallest details of tanking.

When you level rng and wonder how the **** that that tiny 1300 WS at 55 could take hate of the PLD.

You gringe when you level any job and see that the PLD doesn't use food.

When you as a taru always seem to die but never actually does.

When you start healing pt members while someone is pulling cause they shouldn't be hit at all in the first place.

When you accept a pt being main heal , cause to **** but I will get exp.

When in besieged your ****** of that a mobs actually wonders away from you.

When , and this is the worst , you see other PLD's actually walk towards mobs. I will ALWAYS try to avoid this. Having to walk towards a mob is like admitting defeat. I'm standing here so the only logical explanation for the mobs position is right in front of you facing you.

You tune into CNN during the '08 election coverage and:

- are confused when they're not debating /War v. /Nin.

- flashbulbs in the convention stands Flash faster than you do, regardless of haste.

- Notice certain similarities between the Alla PLD forums and shows like 'The Situation Room', 'Crossfire', etc, except instead of Anderson Cooper & Larry King, you have ScarShiva and NCCoda...

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

You switch to NIN\WAR tanking and the lack of hate hurts your brain.

You laugh when other people accidentally provoke.

You provoke <bt> and Flash links before anyone can even think about casting sleep.


-.- I always try to shield bash, regardless of the other things i am doing.(like leveling WAR W\2x Axes)

-You level NIN to 75, but you just can't bring yourself to come to events without a shield.

-You put your Shura Togi in your MH because you want to show your PLD can handle itself in a merit party just fine.

-You get annoyed in Salvage when your MNK doesn't block when casting Ichi.

-You go in your melee gear to Besieged and wonder why all the DDs wearing similar gear are dead.

-You think it's cute when someone pulls hate like they are actually going to keep it.

-You sell all your PLD gear so you can play all your jobs, just to go back and re-buy it again because you know it's the job you should play.

Die-Nam-Miss ( yes its spelled wrong, and for a multitude of reasons, many of which you may not understand.)

when you receive phone calls at 3am stating "we need a tank"

when all you really need is a sword, a shield and your AF.. everything else is fluff

when no matter what else you have at 75, you still have your Knight's earring

when leveling Rdm, you sub war and out tank the PLD in your your pt.

you got a raging hard on when "chivalry" was announced as a merit

when you click protect and shell off cause you just arent taking enough damage

when you macro in all your +hp gear at the start of a fight just to drop that first cure IV fast.

your mannequin holds your AF

when people ask "Why dont you play pld anymore?" and your reply is there is a new piece of abcxyz gear out and you feel that you are gimped and ashamed w/o it.

when your catch phrase is "let's do it"

when you can successfully guess to the second how long a new pld in your LS will last against a certain mob...

when anything /pld is more fun than a normal sub...

when your spirits within deals more damage than sata guillotine, tachi: anything, sata: DE.

when sync'd at 55, that 1300 sidewinder DOESNT pull hate off you.


when you remember buying raise for when you dinged 75...

when you bought a Brass Jadagna +1 just because it has +VIT...
