What's your biggest SW:TOR fail?

I do a lot of space missions to help the levelling up process. I was on my 4th character, around level 28 or so, doing a space mission and my young daughter was watching me play. I asked her if she wanted to try. I loaded up the first space mission, the easy escort one, briefly told her how to play and then let her go at it. It was watching her play that I suddenly realized that you can queue up a group of missiles. I had been releasing them one at a time (right click fire, right click fire, right click fire...).

1) During my first days of playing i had no idea that you can pull the mods off orange gear. So, upon getting new ugly gear with a bit better stats, i just vendored lots of good looking pieces.

2) Same time period, wasn't used to checking in at quest hubs in order to Quick Travel there when needed, so had to run around a lot.

3) Didn't gear my first tanking companion in anything but his specific quest reward green gear and was wondering why is he dying in 2 seconds.

4) Screwed up a bit the last part of Inquizitor storyline on Alderaan by not helping one particular lady. Was upset so much that created a ticket asking the CS to delete my progress in the last quests (they declined me of course) and was even considering abandoning the character.

5) Didn't make any cool videos or screenshots along the way while leveling. That's one of the reasons why i'm leveling the same class again now.

6) Not really a fail, but still. When the white crystals were about to be removed from the game, i was a new fresh lvl 50 and didn't have enough credits to buy the top end one. So i have to be content with a cheaper less powerful version.

I bug reported the chest armor you get from the Revan quest on DK cos it had no stats and 8 armor value. Only to later realize the nature of customizable gear. (I still maintain it's not explained very well for new players, though )

I also at some point used shield and absorb mods on my healer, cos hey, it couldn't be bad to have a bit of absorb, right?

Lol! Ok, biggest fail on my part.

I'm cruising around Balmorra (pub side), checking my map for the next quest and chatting with guildies on vent. I see my next quest marker on the map and speed towards it. Suddenly I look up and I am flying off an elevator full speed, plunging to my death. The surprise made me "skreetch" like a little girl on vent.

My new gulid nickname... skreetch. Its even in the notes next my name on the roster.

Not sure if this qualifies as a fail but it was definately one of the funniest things ive seen.

I was on Belsavis space port about to take shuttle to planet and being the nutter i am (constantly jumping around - tapping space bar really fast) the load screen appeared briefly - then my toon was in space looking at the planet for about 3 seconds ,then i died and rezzed back in the space port.

It was a nice view for those 3 seconds.

I died while questing couple of times to the point where my field respawn was at something like a 10 minute countdown. I was so deep into the instance and so far from the medical droid spawn I decided to go make myself lunch and then sit and watch the timer go down.

For the last 2 minutes I litterally stared at the screen/contimplated life and when I was finally able to field respawn I accidentally hit respawn all the way back at the medical droid.

I turned off the game and started watching Supernatural Season 6.

Once upon a time this lone Jedi Sage was leveling on Voss when she stumbled upon this glowing plaque. Her curiosity got the better of her and she clicked on it. To date that world boss is responsible for the single biggest hit she's ever witness. Over 500,000 damage.

I am NEVER clicking on anything that doesn't have anything to do with a quest again!

1) Hitting lev 20, and then figuring, that there is a tab at trainer's menu, that let me train skills from my advanced class
2) Clicking on "mysterious Jedi corpse" on Taris
3) Figuring that you can get slicing money boxes not only from missions, but also from world drops
4)Learning at lev 50 that you can buy things like power conversion module and ECM for spaceship, so I could finally completed that Sullust Interception mission

Summoning the Nightmare Pilgrim on Voss because I thought it was a lore object

Running around on Alderaan lvl'ing up my Powertech(after I had been running around the planet the day before on my lvl 50 WH Merc because I wanted to get some commendations to buy something), see a lvl 50 Pub beating on a lowbie, and I jumped in the fight and was thinking "How is he resisting my shots?" then he stomps me LOL
