I had a super close situation in Valkurm dunes today.

I'm leveling in a party as SMN14/WHM7 and I'm 4 EXP TNL. Puller goes out to get a lizard, and a Goblin Butcher wanders into camp. Then a Goblin Ambusher pops in camp, and the tank gets aggroed. We start fighting the butcher, and the lizard comes in. I have Carbuncle out and I'm healing as fast as I can. One of the melees, and the BLM, are in the red. I'm curing like mad, and thet BLM dies.

The Butcher is at around 1/4 HP, and I want my 4 EXP..

I hit my Astral Flow macro and quickly ordered Carbuncle to use Searing Light.

Carbuncle kills the Goblin Butcher
Ryanstryfe obtains level 15!
Ryanstryfe cheers!

Me and the remaining living party members zone :)

Anyone else have super close calls like this?

I was leveling as my white mage in Valkrum and the party decided to take on pugil. Things seemed to be going smoothy enough - I was on top of healing, the tanks were beating the thing down and our black mage was nuking. It soon became apparent, however, that this pugil was a little tougher than we thought because despite all this, its life bar just wasn't going down very fast. I was running out of MP and the pugil was slowly losing its life.

With about a quarter of the pugil's life left, and I ran out of MP and had no choice but to rest in the hopes of getting some more MP to heal. The party, however, started taking a beating fast and most of the life bars were getting red as the tanks were all bringing the hate on themselves to spread the damage around. I knew what I had to do. I threw myself at the party using Benediction, healing everyone to their max HP, but, as predicted, the pug saw this and started taking big bites out of me. I figured I was dead, but at least the party would likely kill the thing before they died as well. Its first hit drained about half my life as the tanks desperately tried to pull the thing off me and the second hit took me down to 4 HP. Right before the pug hit me a third time, a well placed strike took the creature out, saving my life.

That's the closest call I've ever had.
