Speaking of death becoming funny, I have an interesting story. I was with my static pt in the dunes (yes we're starting that early cause we're sick of newbs/n00bs). I am DRK in the static BTW, and I pull a fly. We obviously can't take it cause our PLD dies :'( I voke it and start running to the opposite zone my pt is running to. There are at least 8 flies I pass nearby on the way. I get close to the zone, turn around. The fly is gone. I wait for about a minute and nothing comes near me. I'm thinking "Huh, must have lost it." I run back to camp, I'm not there for 3 seconds and 4 flies come up to me. I die within 1/2 of a second o,O. Luckily all my other pt members zoned before so they weren't on their hate list lol.

- When you first comment after dying but the party escaping is "Eh, well at least everyone else is ok."

i was in crawlers and some jerk trained about 15 rumble and soldier crawlers all the way to the zone... It screwed up the nest for at least 2 hours while they made there way back and then someone would agro em and train em again. So while fighting some flies a rumble agros and i voke it to save us... our blm wasn't on the ball w/ escape and he finally starts casting right after I die. as soon as this happens i said this and my thf goes "spoken like a true pld." made me laugh...

I suddenly knew I got too much time being PLD when, I soloed a Battalia Tiger for farming, and casted flash and voke while killing it.

laugh when you can hold aggro from a 1130 damage MB

Dude I am WAY guilty of that one. Was in a pty and our BLM was MB for over 1200 dmg - and the mob never turned - I just laughed and then bragged about it to everyone - lol

- you cried in happiness upon holding off your first Benediction without using Invincible.

Guilty as charged

I am also guilty of about 98% of the items listed

here are my additions:

- You goto valkrum just to help someone find a magiked skull
- You goto gusgen mines cause - ITS JUST FUN
- You sub PLD for every job you level
- Try to take on IT Skeletons just to see if you can
- You laugh when past 50 people say 1000 hp OMG
- You think you should have a T.K. (Temple Knight) mark after your name

Those are just mine - I must say - I love this post. Laughed the whole way through

That's something I would love to see added to the game. Hit rank 10 and a certain level, you get your nation's guards initials tacked onto your name (I.M., T.K., etc)

And then of course, the ability to cast signet on people, that would be awesome.

you are lvling a sub and you get 3 /tells asking you to come and pt with your pld :)

I love this one, I do it all the time on Siren. I have a short-list of the best PLD's on my server at my level. Every time I send a tell to one of them levelling a THF for TH2 or whatever I think the Paladin in them gets all swelled-up in the chest because there is NO delay ^^

"Sure, lemme mog I'll be right there"

Could also be that leveling thief is formost grueling and mind numbingly slow, with the only real exception being those that form a static party

you spend
1-15 solo
15-30 trying to find a group longer than every melee
30-45 trying to explain to people how sneak and trick work and generally waiting forever for a party

hmmmm instead of T.K. (Temple Knight) how about I.M.(Iron Musketeer) sorry i'm from Bastok

How about:

A high level WHM is helping out the party (Sitting there and making sure no-one dies by casting cures that blow you away how much hp it gains) and you scream at him/her for healing you AND getting hate in one cast

-You cringe at the thought of not being able to update your equipment at every level.

-You want so bad to fight the undead, even though its strongly advised against by the PT.

-You get excited at your new ability to heal and heal everyone in sight wheather they need it or not. (Very guilty)

-The idea of Blink Tanking just doesn't sit well with you.

-You frown when your attack and defense are almost equal when you level other jobs.

I have a few

-When you buy a robe to look even cooler with your sword and shield (guilty)
-When you end up voking out of habit when a mob is pulled before the secondary tank can set up for SATA (guilty)
-When even the thought of accidently throwing your happy egg makes you cringe (guilty)
-When you refuse to /panic because "real tanks never panic" (I'm a Taru... guilty)
-You feel like you have something to prove when you tank, but you don't know what (guilty, lol)

-edit* When you use your macro to voke because you left your old macro pallette while farming with another job and it says. Party Voking ---> (t) , unable to use /ja "Provoke" <t>

He he most of these I'm guilty of too. (^_~)b But I hope I'm not alone with this one..

You know you've been a pld too long when... (Or playing FFXI too long for that matter)

You visit the dentist and he/she is doing deep tissue cleaning on you and you think.. "I'm a Paladin.. I have high VIT and DEF.. I'll cast Protect II and Sentinel me and everything will be fine." Oh.. don't forget "Invincible" for the needle shots! He he!

Whren thanks for being so cool! (^_^)b

--When someone in RL is looking at you funny and you comment to your friend about your ability to hold hate.

*Actually did this, I said something about how I was "catching aggro" from some guy in a bar and commented on how it's b/c I'm a pld :D

YES! I'm the 100th post, and it's a good one too.

When you hit level 57 at 4:30 in the morning, You can barely hold your head up because you're so tired, but before bed you still make it to ffxi.allakhazam.com to update your signature, character information, and change your sword in your equipment to the gluttony sword, then you get disgusted because allakhazam doesn't have it in the equipment list.
