I’d thought I’d write out some of my more erm… less glorious moments.
EQ2 Shard of Hate. My first night out raiding with our new raiding alliance. Desperate to show my leet skillz… within half an hour I ranger-pulled* the first named with some adds 😛 We didn’t actually wipe but my face was flame-red for ages.
EQ2 Mistmoore Catacombs. This was a fast repopping open dungeon. We were standing in a doorway while waiting for someone to come back from AFK. I spot a shiny in the middle in the room. I am CONVINCED that I can nudge into the room just enough to grab it. I can’t. Room Pull. We didn’t wipe by some miracle (the healer I think, nothing to do with me).
(*most of my ‘best’ moments in EQ2 were caused by shinies or the dreaded accidental ranger pull – I had to macro all my combat attacks to switch on ranged attacks rather than melee – if I got lazy and didn’t used /assist (absolute pain in multi-mob and trash fights) and targeted through tank or assist, I ranged attacked as soon as they targeted something)
Lotro: Fornost (before it was split into wings). First outing with my kin, we were going through here and it wasn’t massively difficult but it did still involve quite a lot of effort. I decided to take a screenshot, and fell off the bridge because my UI was off… It took over 20 minutes for my kin to come rescue me and then get back to where we were….
(another top cause, screenshots – mostly involves my own death though)
ESO. I completely re-skilled, I decided the best way to get to grips with the new skill set would be go into one of the open soloable dungeons. There was some poor Nightblade in there, who ended up watching me spectacularly Leeroy into two packs of mobs and die. I had completely forgotten what the skills were, where they were and what they did… I rezzed at a wayshrine and logged off out of embarrassment.
There are many more examples but surely I can’t be the only one? What’s your best not-glorious moment? 🙂
