i'm sure we've all experienced certain wtf moments in xiv so far, wether it's crafting your first weapon, set of armor or a big party or solo battle against something you thought would DEF kill you - but didn't!!

i had that moment last night... a solo battle against a red crab in gridania. i'd got tired of grinding Nanny's, Chimps and Dodo's and thought i'd give it a shot - my heart raced, buffs up, my pulse rose as with each hit or counter-hit i watched carefully for the moments when TP hit the sweet spot, moved around the beast looking for an advantage - the stun shot so i could pull off a decent TP hit.

when the crab fell... i couldn't believe i'd beaten it. but wow. i did.

what's your first or most memorable moment so far in the game?

I guess this is the closest thing I can think of at the moment.

I didn't think it would definitely kill me but... it's fun to kill stuff way above your level with the magic using classes.

Hmm, in Beta: My first run to Mor Dhona. Those wolves! We went through the Thanalan entrance. There were 3 wolves in this tiny area waiting to eat us. And when we finally got past them, there were buzzards. >.<
But we made it, and Mor Dhona was pretty awesome.

In Retail: The first time I successfully soloed a Dodo. After seeing them walking around all the low-level areas, finally being able to take them was great.

My first dodo. I remembered them being tougher near the end of beta, so when I finally attempted one in retail I wasn't sure I'd make it. But it actually turned out to be rather easy.

And when I made my first piece of gear, a body upgrade. Up to that point I'd only done crafting leves. I created all the components of the item then tried to make it. It was such a relief when I completed it. I immediately made another one to try to sell. That second one came out +1, leaving me a happy camper.

I believe everyone will generally say, combat-wise, their first Dodo ***** birds.)

Probably one of the most memorable moments I've had was last night, when me and 3 other LS buddies did the 10-Crab Leve in Gridania...without magic. Some very hectic and close moments there.
