Dumbest death ever....

I'm in a room full of dragons ...awake dragons. Instead of using my staff of destruction like I should have a used a phase door scroll. F8(k I feel so dumb. I just got Bard and was killing everything in my path. I thought I'd just phase away and pick the dragons off one by one.


Lesson learned don't ever leave things to chance...use your best escape at all times.

Off to start again.

So did your phase put you like 3 spaces over to the left and no less directly in the path of everything that breathes bad things? I have (unfortunately) done that many many times.

*Destruction* isn't all that much better than ?Phase in this situation. It has a relatively high failure rate.
If you must rely on a staff, this is the time for _Teleportation.

As for "dumbest death evar"... you have a lot of competition. Here's my contender.

The problem with Phase is that even if the spell succeeds, it could still move you within the same room and you'll still die.

Moar liek ?fail, amirite?


(-_- I apologize. taking a long break from WoW does this to me...)

Heh. That makes me still laugh.

My most rememberable stupid death was against Dracolisk in GCV. I was at last row emptying that GCV and I had got pretty much every single piece of my gear changed to better one and was facing Dracolisk. No matter, I have immunity to fire and nexus resistance and over 800 points of HP and 6 blows with Glaive of Pain with huge damage boost and speed to spare and no FA....

Yep. I just got plain greedy and plain stupid...I should have either Destructed or teleported level. The thing is with this game is that no matter how powerful you get a group of powerful monsters can still kill you. I was hoping that I'd get "lucky".

Lesson learned.

What was that, Ancalagon with escorts? I've never seen a pack of high dragons in the wild.

Ooh ooh, can I play?

It's a randarts game and I have two rings. One has Im_cold and a bunch of other stuff, but it aggravates. So I have another ring as a swap for running around. Problem is, I don't even have Rcold with the second ring. Guess which ring I was wearing when I decided to take on Huan?

If you've never seen your health go from 800 to -700, you should definitely try it!

Exactly...my dumb ass SHOULD have teleported away. Oh well at least I'm a better player for it. But I had all of the good gear which makes it that much sadder.
