    Default One word: Ladder

    Trying to flee from enemy within pit razors, jump to the ladder ... oh no didn't notice the oil spill ... hack hack hack blood on the dancefloor swears loudly ...

    A rather recent one.

    The new ship amenities are out and i find this big cannon in one of the big rooms.
    Cool, i walk up to it and hit it, thinking it's like a training dummy.
    The thing starts shooting at me !!
    I'm on a wiz and my evasion is not the greatest yet, so i try to heal through it, but it keeps shooting and i'm taking damage.
    Ok, let's attack it then, hardly any spell works on the ship, nor does it do much damage.
    Next, run into a side room and hide till the storm is over, heal to full hoping it has forgotten you.
    No such luck, it keeps shooting at me while my guildy is probably on the floor laughing.
    In the end it got the better of me and i'm dead on the floor of our new ship.

    I forgot about that one. Did something similar. Only it wasn't lack of int on my characters part but mine. I didn't pay attention to ship positions so, what do I do? Enter the ship I just set the timer for... *boom* I figured Turbine screwed up and killed me. Nope, I killed myself. Figured out when I ran the quest next when you DD back to the raft, your orientation is not what I figured it was.

    Long story short, I had to do the entire quest over.

    Default Back when I was new...

    Died solo in a quest and released. Ran up to the bar to repair and out of habit, switched to my haggle item, from.... yep, my con / false life item. So long ago, I can't remember if i died or just incap.

    I have often died in a Tavern after a release. I would switch out a Con item for a haggle to sell and repair, forgetting that I need that Con item. It would cause my HP to go below 0...well, at least people in the tavern got a good laugh.

    This was probably day 1 or day 2 of the preorder beta in 2006, when the physics engine was still in it's infancy I guess.

    Running into Part 3 of Waterworks, oozes drip off the ceiling to fight, I was standing directly underneath one and died immediately. I don't think I saw an attack from it, but it just instantly killed me as if I was crushed by the falling ooze. It happened maybe once or twice before I figured out what was going on.

    I'm always a little wary of waterworks 3 when doing favor even on high level toons, because instant death is instant death.

    Mine was chains of the Flame Solo. I made it to the blind guy, talked to him to take his curse. I was on my Cleric, do no problem right? O got the curse and immediately cased remove curse, saw light for about 1 second and curse came back, so cast remove blindness...same thing. I tried everything in my pack and spell book, but couldn't shake the curse.

    So I cast the remove cruse over and over repeatedly walking a couple of steps each time until I was blind again. I actually made it up to the final shrine and figured that would take care of it.....nope. Amazingly after spend a couple thousand SP on removed curse over and over again, I made it to the end boss. I felt lucky to make it here since I still had to fight mobs while was blind, but I did make it...only to fall off the bridge into the Lava. Couldn't cast any spell at this point so died a slow painful death in the lava.

    I remember doing that. The raiding heyday was filled with fun **** like that which just seems missing today. Put 12 people together on a raid train and you get some fun conversations and general messing with each other for the night. Greasing the cliff at the entrance to the Subterrane Dancing someone right when Horoth drops.

    This happened to a guildy.

    He was having mic issues that night so was stuck to typing. We are all gathered up, then I could have sworn I saw someone run off the edge.

    Yeap... someone did. R = autorun by default. Needless to say he turned off that feature after that.

    I have a great one from VOD when I was one my second life.
    Just after MOTU so the old raids were still being run really often on Argo and my friend set up a raid train.
    We didn't have a Rogue in the party, but I had 3 Arti levels and I knew I could handle the traps on elite no problem.
    The entire time we're rebuffing and running to the raid people are asking "are you sure we don't need a rogue? Are you sure you can do this?"
    Repeatedly answering "YES I'VE GOT THIS!"....

    Get into the raid, get buffed, search and find the traps and go to disable and... No thieves tools.
    We go for it anyways and we end up wiping because the traps.

    Knowing what my problem was I convince everyone to run it again, but while rebuffing I DC.
    Hurry to get back in and once I do everyone is waiting at the raid for me. Ignore my buffs and run to the raid entrance. Get inside and buffed only to realize I had forgotten to grab some thieves tools after I reconnected. We wiped again.

    Great times.
