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

-You see Raise as a way to jump back up and start tanking again rather than a way to regain exp.

-You know instictively how much damage someone has to do to pull hate off of you, and try constantly to raise it.

-Adore your capped evasion skill and giggle hysterically for five minutes straight after you go through a battle with an IT beetle without being hit ONCE.

-You've never lost hate to overcuring.

-You're leveling your White Mage in the dunes, and your party links three gobs on a bad pull. So you proceed to run into the middle of the fray, use Benediction to grab all the hate, and scream at everyone else to zone. (We actually all lived through this. I had 9 HP when I hit the zoneline. ^_^)

Some update to my own "You know you've been pld too long when.........." post sometime back.........

1) You can tank the mobs with your eyes closed.... falling asleep and you're still holding hate........ That's what happened to me when I was I trying to get to lvl 75 like 2 months back in Ru Ann gardens ~_~;

2) You jump on to the next tanking job after you gain 75 just for the fun of it..... (Nin lvl 52 800 XP to 53 =P)

3) You discover that you're losing the feeling for the game after you gained PLD 75.............

4) You miss the good old times when you're looking forward to wearing chain..... looking forward to getting flash...... looking forward to wearing IM......... looking forward to full AF.....

5) Then you start feeling you want to quit =_~;;

Well that's for me at least.....



6) You know you've been a pld for too long when you have actually received replies before from posters like dougn and russian...........

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

-You lvl brd to 40 just to go to a BCNM40 in Giddeus. Something about tankin 7 mobs at once fills you with glee.

When your tanking reflexes cause you to hit the Provoke macro when you're trying to do a SATA. This happened to me twice yesterday. Stupid tanking instinct...

Guilty to all of the above. >.>

-When your PLD macros cover any job you level.
-You cry if your shield/parry/evade isn't capped 1/2 way into the level.
-You don't like XPing with THFs, because you won't have hate for the first 20 seconds of the fight, while SATA gets set up. (WAS guilty, now I don't mind. >.>)
-from level 40-60 you wear nothing but I.M./plate and AF armour, because it looks like what a paladin should wear.
-You have competitons with other PLDs to see who can get the most VIT+ (60PLD, 61+28VIT now. =D)
-You wonder why DRKs have such a low DEF score... they can wear I.M. armour too...
-Blinktanking makes you sad inside.
-Loosing hate is unacceptable, so you haven't done it for the past 45 levels.
-You pull hate as your BLM and say "Don't worry, I'm a Paladin."
-Then you die and say "Its ok, its my job"
-When death is funny.
-When you wonder if you could kill that EP goblin...(Pre-gluttony)
-When you can't kill that EP goblin.
-You level up another job to 75 for more +VIT/+Emnity/+Shield Skill Merit Points.
-Everybody misses the mob casting AM, you get hit with Quake and live, and say "Wow, that looked pretty cool."
-You wonder where Defender went with /THF.
-You talk to a JP player in Autotranslate for 45 minutes trying to get a price for Verve rings.

Well, I think thats all I've got for now...

I'm so guilty of many of these!!!

-when you begin drinking juice in real life and feel more refreshed
-when you see a bottle labeled Ether in real life and consider it for even a second.. (but it will refill my mp!)
-when you have a 4 mage and 1 thf party and tell the sumoner to meele so thf can sata on him and do more damage and tell him you'll give him 10k if the mob ever turns on him..

(this last one was quite funny to me.. it was a wierd setup in quicksand caves.. ended up telling them to do poison nails to SATA viper vite.. and MB with freeze and turned out to be decent exp..)

-when you tank while leveling any other job and do better than the noob tank at the dunes.
-when you think about leveling rdm just for phalanx and see how much your def would increase, and just in case they raise the level cap for refresh
-when you end up puting power sandals on any job after 18.. cause you dont want to get rid of em and you sure as **** aint giving them back to the guy in selbina.. (although it would be funny to give em back after so much use.. )
-when you have to run after a bad train cause you are the only one left alive that can raise.. and have to tell yourself you did the right thing and it would have caused more downtime but don't feel to good about it.. (party next to us trained anticans in Quicksand and escaped..)
-you dont feel the need to sneak fish cause you think you can just ignore the dam thing pounding on ya..
-when you feel that SE should have given us 2 handed war hammers

this was an awsome read thanks for a good time guys!!!

-When you are leveling White Mage and the party calls for a zone you make sure you are the last one through the zone 'just in case'.

-You wonder why the Black Mage stuns the Goblin when it uses bomb toss, after all if it suicides it will be dead quicker and really, what does it matter if you take a little damage when it goes?

-When leveling a subjob and the tank leaves with someone near next level you offer to run inside (was fighting just outside of Rabao) and sub Warior so you can tank a few fights to get the guy his level. You say you can do it because 'Holy Breastplate has better defense than the tanks armor anyway'.

-You know you're a pld too long when you level Drg for fun and bring +Vit gear.

-When you cover the Whm from being one shotted while still weakened and eat dirt again. (did it last night)

-When you know you would use cover and die again without hesitation.

*Didn't sub Pld to War when I last leveled it. I subbed Thf so I could not be the tank. Kind of like a break from tanking... I out tanked the War/Mnk in my pty and out damaged him. (-.-)

You don't mind dying at lower levels, because 500 exp just doesn't seem like that much anymore.

When leveling other jobs, you can't bind anything where your provoke or flash macros were, because you're very likely to randomly smash them.

You know you hav eplayed PLD to long when you...

When you lvl PLD to lvl 35 and decide to finish the last dreaded few lvls of war sub to be done with it. And when using war you try to cure yourself over and over again not know you not pld atm.

When your lvl war sub and hate every minute of it cause you can't cast cure, but keep hitting cure macros.

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

*You refuse to party with a ninja when leveling your tarutaru warrior for sub.
*You wear your stamina rings +1 as a whm, just to show people you might just be a paladin.
*You cry when you level your whm because the shields you can use suck.
*You tell your party, "we don't need a whm, I can heal" when having your paladin subbed.
*You as a tarutaru leveling your warrior sub get offended greatly when they invite another tank into the party, but rejoice if they invite a fellow paladin.
*...Then you moan at how horribly this fellow paladin is holding hate.
*You carry def food when leveling mage jobs.
*You pay to set your homepoint outside of kazham, instead of doing it for free in kazham, just so you can rush back to your party's aid in case of death.
*You refuse to zone, saying, I'll just HP when I die, and take the exp hit, rather than letting anyone else die.
*Then you die 3 times that one battle, and keeping doing it. (leaving the party afterward cause they can't pull/play well)
*You wear your power sandles when leveling mage jobs.
*You always carry around all your PLD gear, instead of putting it in the MH. Then put it in your bazaar, just to show your a paladin.
*You laugh when everyone in the party uses their 2 hr, EXCEPT YOU, and they still can't pull hate from you.
*You still laugh when it happens again and you're a WHM.
OMG! I didn't realize I was that bad until I just put all this here :)

lol. I'm guilty of doing this a few times, now I try to log off before I get that tired, just don't want pt member to die cause I'm sleep playing.

I did this one other time, fell asleep and was play for like 30mins after I was asleep(or at least I think it was a sleep like state) and I also think I may have hit all the key on the keyboard at once cause I woke up on the pol error. The next day I contacted everyone and aplogize that I fell asleep and d/c. One of them was like "you fell asleep for the 30mins before you d/c?" I was kinda amazed I did that good asleep. Anyone else have the excitement of doing this too???????
