What was your first defeat...Follow

Hi folks,

Just a fun thread to see what or who caused your first character defeat.

Mine was leveling my conj, to 15 for paladin, doing the Giant Gnats in Gridania for hunting journal. On my third and final gnat, my son jumped out from behind a curtain and scared the #^%# out of me. The gnat used my distraction (and laughing fit) to chew the rest of my face off, and thus my perfect game ended far sooner than I had hoped.

Thank goodness this isn't like LotRO, where you get achievements for not dying until level X!

So, what were some of yours?

I think it was a bat, 6 levels higher, hit stone instead of cure. :(

My first (and second) defeat were at the hands of those Kobolds in .....that mine area in La Noscea.

Most recent defeat was just running around on my BTN or something just to see how far I could get. Was a lvl 49 Gigas.....somewhere.

Then, I realised it was a black garbage bag left out for pick up.

Coeurl King FATE, when the coeurl concubines spawned all 4 of them aimed at me and burst me down, sadly, none of the freaking conjurers or acns next to me would heal

people have serious case of tunnel vision in this game

My 1st defeat was at the hands of error 1017 ;-)

On a serious note though, my 1st major defeat was the CNJ 15 quest while prepping it for PLD (I know i didnt NEED to do it, just wanted to :-D).

May have been a mob earlier than that which got me, but thats the one which sticks out, it killed me off a couple times before I regeared and returned to layeth down the pain (well, heals).

**** Spriggan caught me leveling my PUG up. He went to do his cone attack and I ran thru him buuuut, hit an attack key which flipped me around while I was still running through him which made me run right into the cone. Done.

My first, second, third, fourth and fifth were at that the hands of the level 20 ACN job quest where you have to recover the book for a fellow NPC. Couldn't tell you what killed me, there were so many mobs. Finally beat it on the sixth that's to some advice.

Well, my first death death was from trying to Leeroy Jenkins my way through the Sylphlands to complete my Eastern Shroud map.

Death from actual combat and fighting? From being Bad Breath'd to death by a bunch of Malboros in the FATE "Fate is a Fecal Mistress".

Ick.

A very very long drop did me in the first time. Walking into a fate that had just popped along with 7 or 8 mobs auto-targeting me was the first mob death.

I died once in Sastasha due to my healer not healing me. Other than that, I died once to fall damage. But I don't really count those, so my first REAL death was doing the level 30 MRD quest. That buffalo dude hit hard as **** and his AoE circle was difficult to get out of. Of course it doesn't help when the NPC you're fighting alongside refuses to cast more than cure 1, and the other dude aggros all the adds and immediately dies, leaving you tanking the buffalo and 6-8 adds. Smiley: tongue

Gotta say, I'm loving the ramp up in difficulty though, can't wait to tackle some tougher stuff at higher levels.

lol, the only times I have died is when in FATE's and the healers seem to think they are much more useful nuking than keeping the tanks up.

Did die once in a dungeon but that was when healer went AFK and I was pulling like a madman and didn't notice.

Rode my chocobo off a really big cliff and actually died from it (I didn't think I could since most big falls left me with 1HP but this was a really big fall).

The lvl 30 THM quest was pretty standard. One large mob with a couple of minor adds midway. I found the 15 THM quest to be harder, because you had to use sleep. Sucks about the buffalo though.

I play as a ARN and I notice during some FATEs I have a real hard time targeting a tank (I play on PS3) so please don't think we're ignoring you! I try and heal since Ruin does crap damage anyway.

As for me my first death was to the level 15 CNJ fight, got ganged up on by some water spirits :(

Level 5 arcanist quests. I did it wrong and attacked other people's monsters instead of my own. Whoops.

During Alpha, I was in Gridania, I was...level 7 or 8 when I went up the fallen tree outside of Bentbranch...and didn't realize that all the enemies up there were level 30+. Oops! Smiley: banghead

If I remember correctly, at the time, the enemy's level couldn't be seen beside their name like it is now, which is why I didn't last too long up there. Don't quote me on that, though; I may be thinking of another game I was playing at the time.

Edit: added a missing word
