- When you shoot the BLM in your static a puzzled look when he tells you it's bad when you die.

- When you're driving home from work and upon seeing a cop in the median, think to yourself, "I better speed by and draw aggro so all the other cars can zone safely."

- When you purposely stand outside Escape's AoE during a massive aggro/link just make sure you die *at least once* today.

- You've ever said, "I only use Invincible in an emergency. My dying is not an emergency."

- You stood up and did a happy dance when you hit lv29 and first equipped your Eisen/Kampf set because you were finally wearing armor it looked like a real Paladin would wear.

/panic

You mean I have to wait until level 29 for the "good stuff"?


OK, I'm tempted to start a thread: "You know you want to be a Paladin too much when..."

you totally flipped when someone told you want a tran taco did.
you tell the thf to sata behind the DD cause you know you'll hold the hate
you try to show your way better than all the ninja's in your hnml.

you dont care if you get red hp as any other job.

you are uncomfortable when you arent taking hits.

you find yourself hitting your voke macro when lvling jobs without that ability.

you feel a burning need to tank anything and everything no matter how hard it is.

when you have to equip a round shield you think it looks too pansy.



Uh.... Guilty

****, I need to level WAR and get this quest out of the way.... I'm missing out!

- You see an angry Monk throwing his fist in the wall ...
... feel sympathy for the wall ...
... and try to Cover/Cure it.

All the while, your Elvaan drk friend wonders how he managed to hit such a "small" target ... and your blm friend why the wall didn't move out of range.

I'm guilty of just about everything in here but anyway heres a few of mine....you know you've been a PLD too long when...
-You decide to lvl whm and your magic lvls aren't capped past lvl 10...
-Your cure heals for more than the RDM's....
-When you lose hate even if nobody dies you {I'm sorry} to the whole pt....
-You buy armor so far in advance that when you equip it people ask you how much it costs and you say "I forgot"....
-You actually have a large enough MP pool to PL pt's in the dunes w/o whm sub.....
-Your lvl 45+ and still have a cache-nez worked into your provoke macro to add hate....and lastly
-When you party in the dunes as a non-tank job and you give the current tank pointers cause he's a n00b so he cusses you out in n00b and then calls you an idiot....yeah and he doesn't believe you have a 60 PLD even though your rank 6.....n00bs XD

Another one.

When your response to "how wonderful XXX piece of equipment is for XXX job (not Paladin)" you reply "But it's not SHINY!"

-When you level in qufim and laugh in the face of a 22 sword and shield War/Whm when they repetidly try and fail to take hate.

-When you level Dragoon in dunes and are happy when your party can't find another tank.

-When you are leveling Dragoon in the dunes and your the only tank and the party is afraid to pull a Goblin Leacher and you say, "What the ****, I'll tank anything."... and live.

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

- You use Turtle Soup in town after getting a new piece of +HP gear just to see what your new max is.
- You giggle gleefully when you hit 300TP with full HP and hit your Spirits Within macro.

your level 16 smn dies while trying to tank because you saw someone else get aggro

your level 16 smn hp goes red and you think you can survive one last bomb toss

you get concerned over the health of your avatar and try to figure out how to grab hate so it doesn't die

you feel weird not eating fish type food when leveling anything else

You go along, tanking with your staff and healing in between hits like a good Pld, then it hits you. You're the WHM. (I've actually accidentally done this in Dunes >.<)

Absolutely!

- When you keep a record of most damage taken in one blow - like DD's keep a record of most damage done.

My record is 1603, Titan - Barstonera wore - 2 HR - Pwned.

Your HP goes down to 1 HP and you don't flinch. Everyone goes "OMG... o.O; 1 HP!!! geez you almost died" and you say "*brushes his shoulders off* Death + Paladin = Bestfriends."

OMG this thread is Great!!!! ROFLMAO. I got a few to add.

-You hate to exp party with a PL because it through's off your hate routine.

-You wish the PL would stay behind you so It at least looks like you tanking.

-Your party has to keep telling you not to put hate off the PL.

-Your party's say, "Man the mob's really hate you!!!". And you grin with pride.

-When you get 300% TP 1/4 of the way through the mobs life, but u save it for the begining of the next fight so u can do 500+ dmg.

-You send /tells to your whm telling them to chill it when they try to keep you topped off in the middle of a fight.

-Just for fun, when ur friend is partying in a camp right next to yours, u cure III them and use Sentinel just to get the mob off of them when they pull, and you take it to their camp for them.

-When farming with a friend, you sub thf but still try to provoke when you lose hate.

-When skilling up you try to use shield bash even with ur earth staff equipped.

-Regardless of how sure you are going to die, you never use Invincible with more than 100 hp.

-You wonder why the BLM still gets behind you before casting, when they know their AM MB Hasnt broken 1100 dmg all night.

-Dying to you is funny, though you still feel good when the WHM sends u a /tell apologizing.

-You feel ashamed when the rng does barrage then sidewinder and manages to take hate for a second.

-Your whm says "you and this rdm make my job too easy" and it brings a smile to your face.

-You wonder why other paladins are using anything besides Kite and Jennet shield from lv28-50.

-Leveling other jobs, you want to provoke whenever the mob heads for the mages.

-You keep trying to cure3 people in your party who have low HP, when you're a MNK ><.

-You still buff up on VIT+ even when your leveling a mage job

-You get excited when your weapon skill breaks 200DMG.

-Leveling another job, your tank leaves and you offer to tank in his/her place.

-You look at DEF and MP bonuses on all new gear, even for your DD job ><
