Ok...I surrender. Time for a newb question.

So...I died. Been lying here on the ground for an hour.

Made a new toon - dead...in a cave...alone in the dark.

So...is there something I'm missing to come back to life, or do I venture to my 3rd slot, or delete/reroll?

Open your Menu > click Return.

That was it...I was trying to teleport thinking it was the same thing.

Thank you kindly.

That is something I think they should make automatic when you die though...it's just one of those small things that makes the game smoother.

The funny thing is, had this been Blizzards second mmo and this would have happened anyone would have tried to report it as a bug or asked in chat "how do I respawn". Says something about XI, SE and its reputation that people actually think it might be hardcore, as in you die you're dead. :)

For the record, I would have prolly done the same thing ;)

I agree that respawning should be a bit more intuitive.

I did the same dang thing. I thought it was a lag issue and that the UI would update and ask me if I'd like to HP (tyvm, XI dialog box). Sat there for a few minutes, then decided to mess around with the menu and that's when I found Return. I guess they're right when they say that you don't really appreciate something until it's gone.

Then how are you supposed to be raised?

actually it is not good to have auto re-spawn because most of the time u may KO during a leve fight and if party member clear the quest mob u still get the quest item even when KOed.I am not sure if u get the quest item if you are far away in another area. but what i seen most people just lying on the ground wait for the party to clear or wipe before return.

Auto respawn would not be a good idea. You can always wait for a raise.

I suggest you read the game manual on the beta site. It does explain quite a few things. However, it also isn't entirely correct, as they have changed some of the keyboard actions since the inception. One that comes to mind is that n is for emotes, rather than the e that the game manual states.

I highly doubt he means to respawn automatically. What he's referring to is a little yes or no bar that pops up asking if you want to do so.

Exactly. If I remember correctly FFXI had basically this same thing.
