You know you've been a paladin too long when:
-You leave a party to help your LS do a coffer key quest, the party leader replaces you with a Ninja, only to find out from a friend nearby that they wiped on the 1st mob they took. Then you go back to raise everyone, but wait to raise the ninja last. :)
-You exp in the ToA area for the first time and complain that the mobs aren't hitting you hard enough. So you switch to att gear and still take minimal damage...
-The Eldieme Necropolis is your playground
-You level red mage in Qufim, and sub/war just so you can backup the tank. And do a better job. Even if the other tank is a paladin! O.o
-You jump at any /shout in Jeuno from people looking to do BCNM60 "Celery", even if you don't have enough seals, just to you can tank an NM ghost. (And giggle knowing that everyone else says only a Ninja can tank Shredded Sampson.)
-You spend the first 10 minutes online every day searching through the AH to see if any new armor has been released for paladin while you were asleep.
-You finish the last part of your AF quests, put on the Gallant surcoat for the first time, and a tear comes to your eye, because now you LOOK like a Paladin should!
-You keep every shield and sword you will ever need for 2-3 dragon fights, Promys, and BCNM 20, 30, 40, 50, & 60's
-You almost wish you could delevel back to 1 so you can do Paladin all over again, then create a new character just for that reason!
Never let anyone tell you how to live your life.
