Default Newb moments in ffxi

Not sure if this has been posted before, I did a search, and nothing camp up that was close.

ok, Newb moments, we've all had them. mostly at lvls 1-30, but some souls still have them at 75. Embarrassing moments, hittting wrong macros, lots of things. I'd like to hear peoples moments of embarrassment, or ignorance when starting ffxi. I've been playing since the NA PS2 release.

Mine I can remember: lvl 8 warrior, just started the game. I get my first party:

PM1: Brayker, voke
me: huh?
PM1: Use voke!
me: .. whats voke?
PM1: PROVOKE!

*Party wipes*

the one who was telling me to use provoke was nice enough to explain to me what it was, and how to use it. I'd been soloing from 1 to 8, I had no need or knowledge of using job abilities. When I did finally get a chance to use it, I didnt like it. "Wait... its hitting me now! I'm gunna die, screw this voke stuff!" I also used a sword/shield and spear till around 30ish

When I -very first- started the game, I was a Elvaan Rdm in Sandy. I started off in Port Sandy near the Airship dock and was like....I see no one. No one but NPC's. Does anyone still play this game? (Thankfully three and a half years later the game is still here.)

Anyways, I didn't bother to read the instruction maneul(if it even came with a good one) and wandered until I found a mass of people. (S.Sandy AH) Took me a while to figure out how to talk. And even then, I started talking in shout. I annoyed all of S.Sandy until someone took pity on the poor noob and explained /s and /p.

when i first started i didn't know what signet was, then after finding out that the west sarutaba guard gives it to you, i would run out to him for it. week or so later i talked to the tarus by the gate in town and found out they could give me signet too. that was about 1 month after pc release

I remember when I read the description on Signet I thought that ment that I could attack people with signet from other nations and vice versa, and when I seen this 50ish Bastok player I nearly crapped myself thinking he'd kill my level 10 RDM.

I was new, I didnt know that you were supposed to party starting at 10 :P

I also remember asking a friend what beastmen seals were for (around lvl 25ish), he said they were for some instanced battlefield, which I figured I'd never participate in, so I started tossing them as they collected in my inventory.

"What the hell are these stupid yellow beastman seals!? /toss"
"WOW silk thread sells for 3k a piece!"
"(at auction house) 500 on the wind crystal."
"1000 gil, I'm rich!"

...to name a few.

These days at level 75 it's more like...
"50,000 gil! yay I'm rich!"
"What the hell is a Nyzul Isle?"
"So you're POSITIVE that if i touch this (dangerous monster)..."

Starting FF-11 in the first place.

Quitting FF-11 rather then just switching servers. (I'm sure if I switched I would have stayed.)

Well FFXI was my first MMO so I was very screwed on terminology, but I remember alot of noob moments at the start, started on WAR, thought I could dodge attacks by running around mobs, and didn't learn about /check until like lvl 12, so wondered why mobs that looked the same killed me so easily XD
Also I remember in my first party after the first fight they told me
"Alizia you're tank." I was thinking... "Uhh... is that a compliment? >.>"
"Thanks ^^"
"..." took a while to explain that XD

I also remember once at lvl 44 SMN I was having fun with a SAM friend same level doing BRD quest, and on our way back to Selbina we decided to make a train, but we were both /BLM and forgot this... so I was like "Voke 'em off me!" "Toss a cure!" "... /BLM..."

Plenty more! XD

Was like "wow, we're all the same lvl and in the same zone" before I notest those were the ppl in my pt. at what point I was like "huh?...oh...I feel REALLY dumb -.-;" xD

The first time I went outside as a lvl 1 WHM, I didn't equip my starting weapon and tried to fight a bee and died. Didn't realize what I was doing wrong until I died the second time.

Jujubee's FFXI Newblet Moments

Level 5: Still running circles around the mob, thinking it would help me dodge hits.
Level 10: Ran from Windurst to San D'Oria, my grand adventure across the world to visit a friend.
Level 15: Running directly infront goblins, casting spells by undead, blowing all my MP in one fight, everyones done it.
Level 20: Scared to death of Qufim Island after seeing the Weapons, Gigas and people running for their lives.
Level 25: Got into a stupid argument with my old friend for going AFK and not telling me. Thought he was just mad because I outleveled him. We didn't speak to each other for another 50 levels..
Level 30: Yhaotor Jungle, training goblins toward other parties. Everyones done it.
Level 35-49: Blurred memory. But I went many levels using default, level 1 racial gear. refused to buy upgrades, only bought spells. Hey I was a white mage.
Level 50: Said fuck the genkai limit breaks, 50 is MY level cap.
Level 55: Said fuck the genkai limit breaks, 55 is MY level cap.
Level 60: Said fuck the genkai limit breaks, 60 is MY level cap.
Level 65: Said fuck the genkai limit breaks, 65 is MY level cap.
Level 70: Said fuck the genkai limit breaks, 70 is MY level cap.
Level 75: Sky.. God almighty was I such a newb there more than anywhere else. I couldn't go anywhere without getting lost. I refused to join parties going there because it was too far, I always got lost, and died when sneak wore off. The roaming elementals scared the hell out of me, as did all those dolls that squash you for using magic. I hated and love that place at the same time. It was beautiful but as a caster class I couldn't use magic without making an ass of myself. Then there was the whole Zilart and Promathia missions, those are a whole other story.
