lol I want to know what the craziest moment you can remember from the game so far, be it something you did or even from a cut seen. just something that made you go WTF.

Mine was during the first week after release had just gotten my first job to R10 and decided to go exploring. i was wandering around east of camp Tranqual near Quarrymill when i see this oddly dressed guy with the name Amateur Footpad and remember thinking to my self why would anyone name there char that ? next thing they look my way and pulled out there weapon.
so I start typing "don't worry I'm not here to steal your mobs" when they hit me. lol let them get in t 2 or 3 hits befor i even could attack back but by then it was too late. that was my first encounter with a humanoid type mob in FFXIV. Before that my only experience with hume type mobs was FFXI's and thay all had blacked out skin so you couldent see details.

That is my WTF moment so whats yours ?

I had a similar situation the first time I came up to Camp Nine Ivies.

I saw this Miqo'te ahead of me on the way to the camp and I thought to myself, "Toad Poacher? What an odd nam...." *bam rock to the head*Smiley: lol

Another WTF, that outfit the Ferry Captain is wearing....*shudder*

We had 15 people grinding Efts in Tam Tara (so much ridiculous fun, I know. /sarcasm off) when we were all bored and decided to try Raptors with our full R35 group. We move north and take forever to kill one when all of a sudden a Gnat (probably LV50) aggros us. So far we're all "oh whatever, dumb add" when it teleports to do its laser thing. Everybody side steps casually when all of a sudden, it instead does some kind of laser sonic boom in an arc destroying 5 people. The animation was the first we've seen (it looked pretty awesome), and I was just like **********, why can't our mages do that?" So we laugh it off and are like okay, let's just kill it. Teleports again, we move out a bit and around it... and it released the pwn: some kind of AoE thunderstorm that just destroys the rest of the group with me and two guys running in opposite directions. I really wish the mage spells for the players looked just as good as what we just saw; those are the kind of graphics I expect from such a powerful engine. Went back to Efts right after, by the way.

It's too bad I can't think of many more memories... I have so many from FFXI that still make me bust out laughing randomly.

Favorite WTF moment, I'm sure a lot of people share:

First trip into Cassiopeia Hollows, bite the dust to random Sea Hare AOE while walking by. :(

My favorite wtf moment was when I saw someone run up to the ferry, only to keep going up inside the boat, and down out of sight into the water below.

It was a one time glitch I saw, and I wasn't quick enough to frap its ; ;

one time during behest or a leve I minimized xiv to talk on msn, and when I opened it back I was BENEATH THE FREAKING GROUND! I had to run after the engaged mobs from below the floor (no obstacles there) to still get SP. couldn't reach them to fight though. Ended up using return afterwards.

I remember being in coethas with a mate of mine we had been running around a bit looking at the scenary and mobs, I had been there before. We got to camp glory I believe it was and saw a pile of stags, and said to mate oo look male does go and have a look at them, dont worry they dont aggro, stayed back to watch the hilarity :P

although not hugely but to me it was a wtf, the first time i was guano lobed, I was like 0.0 that bat threw its excrement a long *** way

I've had a lot of weird issues since I've started playing but this is (by far) my favorite WTF moment. Soloing puks and dodos around Cedarwood when my arrow helix decides to hit an extra dodo. After killing the first one, I have a sliver of life left, but decide to take the other one on anyways. We end up both killing each other at the same time, however my character never falls to the ground, instead I'm still standing on my screen, with my HP bar reading 0. I figure there's some weird lag going on so I think nothing of it. A couple minutes later I run by this taru (lalafell, sorry!) going towards Bloodshore to complete a few leves, and all I see in /say is "wtf...........dude you're zombie boarding". I guess from the looks of it server side, my char was floating at running speed in the "dead" position. Should've seen the reactions I got when I actually made it into bloodshore. xD
