While doing ZM mission runs for the first time, we had to do the Ifrit's Cauldron one, I can't remember the details, but you had to click on something rather obscure to get a key item for the subsequent mission. I went with my LS, and we had gathered quite a few people including a few randoms who saw us gathering and needed the missions. We only had one tank, one of the randoms we picked up. So we go all the way through IC, without an in-game map, I'm alt-tabbing to the FFXI maps website trying to lead. We caught aggro tons of times from bombs, nearly chained the entire zone at one point...
At the very end, we got to the location and we all clicked on the little spot. I asked everyone if they had it, they all said OK. I made sure to ask them to double-check, because it was quite a tricky thing to collect. They all assured me they received it. We all warp/teleport out back to Whitegate.
As soon as we do, the tank /tells me that he did not receive the key item. In party chat, people begin asking where he is, as they had all began to gather at the next spot. He flips out and starts cursing at the game in party chat now, saying if no one helps him go get the item that he's quitting the game. No one wanted to help me help him, so...he actually quit. Never saw any transactions from his character on the AH website after that.
