I just thought it'd be fun to have one funny MMO moment thread.
i had this experience with Ragnarok Online way waaay back 2003. i was just starting playing for about a month, me and my brother both have a level 30ish swordie that only have mid grade NPC items. To put it simply, we are under equipped and are very poor during that time.
we explored everywhere without carrying any potions because we cannot afford to spend zeny on healing items because we were saving up for better equips. Me and my brother decided to venture on Mt. Mjolnir, north of Prontera. While grinding there, we met another swordsman who is better equipped than us and can tank better. We explored the maps together and then we saw a Flora monster. That was the first time all of us saw that mob. We didn't know how strong it were. So, we dived right in (all three of us) and was overpowered. i was the first one who died. our party mate died next. my brother panicked and tried to mob away from the mob a little too late and he died too. a few seconds after being slaughtered, a thief passed by us and asked us what happened. we told him that the flora got us three but we dealt high enough a damage to it and is near dead and if he would attack it, he could kill it after a few hits. so the thief then engaged with the flora but sadly he died after getting hit three times in a row. he was able to say something that rhymed with "luck you" before respawning to his save point which made all three of us laugh really hard.
still one of my favorite moments in my MMO gaming history.
