I was speaking with someone last night through /tell's who told me what had to be the craziest, oddest, and most hillarious FFXI story I had heard in a while.
Ya, you know who you are. :D
So I suggested creating a topic to gather all these nuggets together. I decided to put it on the server forum, because well... frankly I check this forum more than any of the others. ~.^
I won't tell his story and steal his thunder, but I will tell my own.
Many, many levels ago in a dustbowl far away I was partying with a group. It was fairly late and night, and besides being a bit tired, I had gotten bored of just standing there and healing, so thought it would be great to whack at the mob (ineffectively) with my little staff. All is great, party takes damage, I hit my cure macro, and all is well.
I did notice that it seemed the HP being restored to the party was a little bit delayed, but I thought it was just lag. After the mob falls I jump for joy and begin patting myself on the back for being able to handle fighting and healing at the same time.
Then my party lays into me, asking me why I was curing the mob the entire time. The BLM had gray hair from trying to keep the party alive while I was evidently lost in another world.
After I explained myself and let them each have 5 lashes, we all had a big laugh. Needless to say I don't lock onto the mobs in battle anymore. ~.^
So there... post your crazy exploits here. I mean, a stories only good if people know about it right? :D
