OMG, I am *so* guilty of the "trying to voke while not subbing war". I almost rebooted my computer once, while subbing /whm for sneak/invis on a quest, because I thought the control key was broken or something...

Awesome post ^^

hehe, my own personal one:
-you obsessively wish Shield Bash was ready for use again in 50 seconds, instead of 5 minutes.
I don't know why, I just love that ability...

Haha, first time I have read this thread. It made me laugh because I am guilty as charged on almost everything listed. I'm just glad that I'm not the only one doing it ^^. Just standing in your mog house circling around yourself checking yourself out in your armor...lol. This is great and for anyone who's leveled paladin to a decent level can understand this. Great posts everyone. It made my afternoon.

Not yet guilty of most, but by Altana I will be charged with every single one of them Especially:

Quote:


- you used Holy Circle while levelling in Valkurm just to show you were a paladin.
- you cried in happiness upon holding off your first Benediction without using Invincible.

When you are lvl 61 and still go to Qufim on occasion to kill wights and banshees to show off your sweet AF armor

you run around valkurm or qufim playing "Hero" saving ppl.

LOL quilty of most all of these. The only ones im not quilty of are the ones that are too high for me.

- Invincablity is a reason to run around laughing at death!!!

- I feel left out when not dieing ATLEAST once a day!!!

- When you see a train of high lvl mobs and you engage them for fun!!!!

- Death might be a hit to the EXP but its **** fun!!!!

- Buy armor 5-10 levels in advance
- Dont join any xp parties until you have the best armor at your level
- Use a really out-dated sword (at lower lvls of couse; like a fire sword till lvl 34 hehe)
- Walk slowly in towns to show off your "l33tn3ss"
- Sit at low level zone lines just to kill any trains.
- laugh when you can hold aggro from a 1130 damage MB
- laugh when you see other PLDs with out-dated armor (10-15 lvls out dated)
- Cant stand to be any other job but a Paladin (such as lvling thf)

ya, you dont want to use an outdated sword, thats almost as bad as outdated armor.... almost... TM espadon at lvl 50, Gluttony at 57, espadon/espadon+1 at 66, if you cant afford gluttony there are some other good swords to choose from.

hehe that's sooo funny, i have one but i don't know if anyone else has done this.

You level a ranger to 20 and use your 2 hour on a level one mob just to see what dealing high ammounts of damage is like.

you know you've been a pld too long when...

-your camping near a spawn point where a mob will link so you automatically move the mob your fighting away from it seconds before it spawns.
-train every wight in qufim and let them pound on you untill the morning so no others will spawn and endanger anyone.
-willfully tank the mob your pt is fighting and that of a pt that called for help.
-constantly check the AH every time you pass to see if there is some "jewel" of an item you passed over that will improve tanking.
-you wish you could de-lvl back to 1 and start over because you enjoy the job so much.
-willfully forfit sleep to make sure that you will have everything you need for the next day of saving lives.

hmm...

-you know when you've been a paladin too long when... no.. no i cant "be a pld for too long" i love the job too much

my newest one after partying in garliage is:

- While waiting for the party to heal after a zone you tell the thf to trick off you onto a mob and zone because getting beat up is "just plain fun"

I remember when I did that. I thought I was cool.

- flip out when the white mage is cure happy and doesnt leave you space to cure yourself to hold aggro

I HATE that. Find myself telling lots of WHMs "Leave me some room to cure myself. But try not to let me die." lol...

This is my first post, btw. Been reading this thread for a while in order to become a better Paladin. :D

you know you've been a paladin too long when:

-you hang by town shooting stuff with your lvl 40 alt because you do more damage than your paladin
-you notice how nicely the Gluttony sword matches the red ornate in your AF
-you upgrade armor first on your damage dealing alt
-you know at least half of the renkei chart that involves a thief fuidama weapon skill
-you are chatting in /tell with every paladin you group with at one time or another
-you level your warrior sub with a shield and sword cause all other weapons are low skill.
-playing ninja feels like a crime
-you have vit rings as a mage *(joke)

A few new ones:

You know you've been a pld too long when..
..you can tank and eat lunch at the same time.
..you can tank at 5am in the morning with eyes half-closed.
..you can tank even when you haven't exped in 2 months <--

Apparently I haven't forgotten all my stuff. (*'-')b

...when you are leveling your Monk and after seeing the tank lose hate 4 times in one fight you tell them to let you tank. You pop a fish mithka (which you always seem to have for some reason) and hold hate the entire fight. "He works."

Hehe, good posts guys...
I only thought of a few, but I'll update post if I think of more...

-You have 'Altana' mentioned in at least one of your macros.
-You'll be damned if you let anyone zone after you... including the paladin from the party that just called for help.
-You have more than 4 beds in your mog house.
-You go to out to eat and subconciously order seafood because it 'enhances your defense'.

Edits- Added more lines.

--You sneak onto these boards at least once a day during work to see if you can absorb any more good tips on tanking

--While waiting for a pt in Yhoator jungle you voke the gob trains off other players so they can zone safely

--every PLD in AF you pass makes you stop and stare (sniff ; ; not high enough for my AF yet)

--(already been said but..) you get immense enjoyment out of watching wars/nins try to pull the mob off you when you hit red hp ^^

When you purposely run into the largest train at a zone you can find and hit your 2hr. Then stand there for 25 seconds and zone only to check your log to see how many times you got hit and DIDN'T die.

I did this in Citahell with a HUGE train of assorted bats. I think I counted around 40 hits or so. I want to say it was more.
