Well, I’ll go ahead and start.

The most embarrassing thing I ever did ingame was when…

… in 2006 when I just had my first job levelled 50+, a friend told me that some of his LS members need help killing a NM in Yhoator (I don’t even remember what NM it was).

So I tele’d myself out there instantly, got a Chocobo and rushed to the spot they were fighting. When I arrived I already noticed everyone was half dead, so I wanted to spam some Cures on the people. After like 20 seconds I noticed that none of my Cures got off and they wiped.

I had no idea what was going on and then I received following tell from my friend:

“Did you seriously just tele out here to watch us wipe and fart us to death?!”

And I was like WTF is he talking about… then I realized what happened.

Before I got his call for help I was messing around in Jeuno with some people, doing Emotes. I had an extra macro set for that, for example (I am a Mithra):

/em plays the invisible piano. (/panic motion)
/em tickles <t> (/poke motion)
/em punches <t> (/cheer motion)
and then the notorious: /em farts at <t> (/joy motion) … thats totally dumb… a friend showed it to me and i thought it was funny XD

So yeah, what happened there was that I was in the wrong macro set and kept spamming the “Fart” macro instead of Cure 4 and didn’t notice it. When I read the chatlog afterwards I was laughing so hard, but it was also really embarrassing. These people must have thought I’m retarded or something.

When I first joined I talked to someone and they said {I don't speak any English} and I was like 'but you just spoke in English'. I kept pestering them til they went away. I also convinced people to take magic mart flyers then when I realised I had to give to NPC I had to buy them back.

I've gone to events before on RDM on my solo macro set where every cure and buff macro were <me>. Also I have converted while sleeping/fishing for angel skin when I had 2 fish and 2 crabs on me and died. And I've never fought fafnir at the time, and I told this new LS I was with this. I asked if there is anything I needed to know about this fight. Since it was an end game LS everyone was really stuck up and no one said anything. So I went out on smn, died to breath once from standing in front of it, twice upon reraise, and the third time I thought I was far enough away but apparently I wasn't. That's when they kicked me from the alliance, finished killing faf, didn't raise me, and tele'd out while all the other end game LSs were laughing. Then I home pointed and dropped the shell T.T

I wouldn't call that embarassing. More like they jerked you over. Talk about mean >.>

Back in 2003 on my first character, I unlocked subjobs and had no idea what to put on my THF, because I had almost nothing else leveled. The highest I had was a Lv. 8 WHM, so I tacked that on and roamed around completely oblivious to how this would look to most people. I figured "Hey, cure! That's good, right?" as I strolled around with my whopping 42 MP.

I still got invites, and it took awhile for anyone to say something to me about how WHM is probably the worst sub I could've chosen, especially an underleveled one. But I really just wanted to hit 30 so I could unlock more jobs, and I figured THF was underplayed (because soloing with THF back then blew chunks in the early levels) so I didn't want to bother leveling anything else at the time. I was mocked by one guy who had found me through searching and spared no comment on how stupid this was.

Funnily enough, he and I ended up partying together about an hour later, with my 8 WHM sub still attached.

Accidentally warping myself out of Promathia 6-4. Or really any of the times that I've run somewhere to D2 or retrace someone and then accidentally casting it on myself.

back in like 2003-2004 in a crawlers nest camp i accidentally casted an aga and wiped our party by complete accident and at the time this wasn't very common or heard of lol.

I also circle bladed in dynamis once... i have no idea why my cursor was over that instead of atonement in the games memory.

And most recently... i sometimes solo a mob in dynamis when sekkanoki is up and i didn't realize for some reason it was a white mage mob... the LS happened to be kiling a ninja. Well the ninja was down to like 2-3% and the WHM i was fighting benediction and the NIN blewup and wiped us because it was a full HP mjin lol.

Wiped my new Dynamis shell on my first Dynamis entry. They couldn't stress enough for me not to move when I entered, but no one loaded and I thought I was late so I advanced up the stairs (Dynamis-Jeuno). Bloody massacre. Everyone laughed though so I didn't feel as bad, lol.

I was solo'ing Despot as RDM/NIN and was taking forever. I didn't use nukes and only used Bio II and Poison II. Despite seeing that Despot had built up full resistance to gravity, I kept trying to cast it anyway, apparently forgetting about my bind spell. This whole time, another mediocre geared Red Mage was watching me, but he didn't have a Duelist Chappeau or Crimson Cuisses like I did, so I knew he was worthless, and proceeded to laugh at him saying he couldn't kill it even if he tried.

Anyway, near 1%, Despot continues to resist gravity(my 20th cast, even though it resisted it about 5 casts in) and decides to Panzerfaust my face off. Fortunately I have RR and DoTs on it, but unfortunately the other Red Mage binds it. The moment he casts bind on it, it dies from DoT. So embarrassing.

lol, this reminds me. The far western part of Dynamis - Sandy after we popped a huge hoard of orcs, I remember being on the wrong macro line and cast Diaga instead of Sleepga. Needless to say, after that night I stripped Diaga from my macro set for all eternity.

When I first started playing I saw someone dual weild on WAR. I thought that was the coolest thing ever! So I had one of my LS mates buy me a second axe that cost all of the gil I had. I went to equip it only to see "you must possess the dual-wield ability". Felt like such a dumbass ;)

This would be far less embarrassing if it happened when I was a wee little squirt, but it sorta happened last night instead. I have a bullwhip belt for tp'ing in and a warwolf belt for ws'ing in. When I leveled high enough to wear the bullwhip on war, I stuffed my swift into my mog satchel. I realized about 5 levels later that I forgot to change my macro to equip the bullwhip, so I had been tp'ing in a stinky old warwolf belt for the past forever. ,~_~, gross.

I suppose my one is a bit rubbish but in my first ever Jeuno run, we got to the palace and a set of mobs were pulled, I tabbed through and got to a statue so I cast Flash on it.

Turned out it was the statue on the balcony of the palace, needless to say about 10 seconds later and army of goblins arrived and handed us our death.

When i first got Counterstance on my MNK, i would keep it up full time, not even relizing that it droped my DEF to nothing.

Ended up getting a party on spiders (i wanna say in Faffy land) and ate a 1800 damage sickle slash.

only then was i told that CS lowers your Def.

As a collector of Dynamis gear, I am working on getting all jobs 5/5.

Anyways, I won the right to lot Koga Tekko while we were fighting the wall before the dragons.
So it went something like this.
Saithorx lots X on Koga Tekko.
<Saithorx> Woot!! 5/5 NIN!
<Linkshell Leader> Saith change to DRK for DL.
Saithorx casts warp.
<Saithorx> D'oh
<Linkshell> Laughter

Worst part was that it took me over a year to finally get them. My nin is only 42, but just the 4 spaces of inventory could have been nice.

Don't remember mine, but for my RL friend Cbo, he fake d/c'd in a pt we were in because it sucked so bad.

When he logged back in 2 mins later he ran before ppl could see him back to the staging point. But he ran the wrong way lol so he had to run back through the pt again on his way out. ***was funny as ***.

most embarassing moment....*thinks*

okay i got one. it's not only ingame stuff. When i bought the 2006 or 2007 Edition (with 8 or 9 CD's x.x ) i read about the monthly cost in the game. And it was allright however there was something that confused me to hell: Content ID.
At that time i couldn't spreak or write proper english and i assumed that you pay 1$ per day when you are logged into the game (manual was on english).
So what bassicly happened i planed accordingly when i could play the game and when not. Mostly i didn't logg in for days just to be able to play 4-5 hours on Weekend.
When i was in Valkurm dunes and i got all the subjob items done one my first character the party-members said: let's go level your subjob together.
I answered: i can't afford that, i have planned in 4 hour today of playing and if i play more i might not be able to play more the next week. After a couple of minutes of explaining why i was so harsh with my playtime they had a very very good and long laugh. Then i realized i can play whenever i want in the month and went on to become an alligator.

and the reason i believed that you would have to buy 1$ per day for playing was just that i figured not too many people play this game so they have to get their money faster in order to sustain service.

good times. "oh ***3 hours gotta logg".

Lol me and a guy in my LS watched two people from a douchey LS kite Despot and they died around 1% so my LS friend went up and hit it once for like 60 damage (nin) and killed it. Was pretty funny because they took forever to get it that far
