So I decided to take a break from carving up dodos with my Marauder to swing by ZAM and see if the cats and dogs had started getting along yet and when I was done I tabbed back into the game to a flat character and a nifty message in my chat log:

"The goobbue's attack hits you from the right for 3045 damage."

Death #6 since CE launch, and I blame YOU Osarion!

That is all.

I got my *** goobbued while typing "WOOHOO I made it to the gate!!!!" If I'd just gone to the gate and touched it, I would have that point but noooo. I had to celebrate early.

The NFL (National Football League) frowns upon excessive celebration. Apparently, so does FF XIV.

Say, is it me or goes the Goobbue remind you of a Domo, just grey with a garden growing on its head?

I can't believe you can get them to chase you without just dying right on the spot. They always just throw something at me and I'm ded.

You get goobbued? I get crowed. Running from Broken Water to Dry Bone while reading ZAM = insta-death for a dedicated crafter.

they key is to put up your shield put on stoneskin and every possible defence you can then cast a spell from as far away as possible and start running for your life

half the time i get the toss of death but the other half it starts chasing me.. the key is doing it as i said and doing it juuuust right

works better with archer as it has the longest range

I get Morboled.

I'm sure you've seen the bloke hanging out, looking constipated as usual, near Camp Tranquil.

The thing that gets to me is it doesn't agro me right away. It waits until I'm almost--ALMOST--out of it's range before ranged attacking me for 2.5k.

It's like giving me hope while never actually having it in the first place.

There's nothing like travelling a million miles to be one shotted by a mob which does 3k+ Damage. Ahhhh life of the adventurer.

What'd I do! Smiley: lol I've mostly had to lurk this weekend (on my droid) due to work, drunken antics, and a combined total of about 9 hours of sleep.

PS: When are you gonna get the nifty custom title?

Probably as soon as they decide to implement an (almost) impossible-to-get title. Read: Virtuous Saint

It seems like SE nowadays SE never implements anything unless there's something about it that people can complain about. =/

I remember a month ago... Me newbie pugilist running through Coerthas then Mor Dhona, managing to avoid getting attention from the scary big things on the way... Ten meters away from camp Revenant's Toll, I see two big, mean looking basilisks guarding the passageway. Hiding myself not far, I patiently wait for the beasts to move and leave me an opening. Which finally comes! Next second I'm rushing past them, happily thinking about the warm campfire awaiting for me after all those ordeals. Suddenly I fall to the ground and see a dreaded message poping in my log. 8k damage. Boohoo.

Funny story related to this:

I play with a wired xbox controller with rumble. Sometimes I'll leave my miner where he was and minimize the game to work on other things. One night I had the game running but was working on some homework, and I got the **** scared out of me when my contoller, which was sitting on my desk, rumbled and made a rather loud rattle. It kept doing so over and over, and I was trying to figure out what in the **** was wrong with it. I started alt tabbing through my windows to pull up the control panel, and I happen to see that I was being attacked by a yarzon in game, which was causing the rumble on my controller Smiley: laugh

Unfortunately I didn't get back to the game window quick enough to change to PUG and take care of it, learned my lesson though.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I've got a suggestion! Based off of how beloved he is by the Donnie Downers, how about "Whippin' Boy"!

I made that mistake in one of the riverbeds in Grid. I thought, I'll just grab a quick drink... and I come back just as a swarm of bees finishes me off. The best part is that i never touched a crystal and ended up back at camp bloodshore... ouch.

Rule #4 in designating a scapegoat: Pick the person who isn't there.

I only thought briefly about a title, but figured, "No, **** YOU!" probably wouldn't fly.

I have yet to experience a death from AFK etc..

Although I do remember in XI I was quickly farming bee's as 75 THF. I needed them to craft something anyway.. I went afk so it could auto target fight and came back dead...

The chat log was so full of MISSES/LOW Dmg......... i was expecting to auto kill them and come back done.........
