What's your biggest SW:TOR fail?

The biggest failure EVER:

Keep in mind that I knew NOTHING about playing this game. I'm in FPs with some guildies, and they tell me to use my interrupt. They even tell me that it's Force Kick. So fine, I can do that.

I say, "When?" They say, "When he casts."

So I can figure out that "casting" means activating an ability, so I look for special effects, like lighting bolts or plasma shots raining down on us. And I failed to interrupt Malgus, bu we survive since someone else has an interrupt.

We go on about playing, doing a few FPs here and there. Once I asked if I should just spam Force Kick, and get the same answer, "when he casts."

Then 1.2 comes out, and we get the Interface Editor, and I see "Target Cast Bar." You see where this is going? When I told my guildies, one simply said, "oh, god."



One of the worst failures I've seen on another player, was the guy who said it was his first time in a HM since getting all orange gear. But he kept dying, so I finally sneaked a peek, and he was in all green gear! But his armor was white with orange trim, so he evidently thought "orange gear" meant the color.

^ This! I was having a hell of a time with the end of the knight story until someone told be about this, and was thinking that other people were just that good at telling one effect from another so they knew when to interrupt.

Second biggest failure...elevators. If there's a way to fall down an elevator shaft, I will.

Like when you go to get on an elevator just as it starts to descend and you're left helplessly hovering over it until it - and you - hit bottom? Yeah, that'd be me, too.

I also learned the other day that you can step off the platform near the taxi in the Old Galactic Market of Coruscant and not fall until you turn around and try to get back onto it.

Unfortunately, both the tank and the other dps performed Force Leap at the droid at the same time. The droid was already over the edge when they arrived, sending all three to a gooey high-altitude death.

They said they were both laughing their butts off over it, though, so all was good.
That. Would be. Epic.

Was on my Marauder, which is my very first character, and was traveling across Dune Sea when I found the Interesting-Looking Skull or w/e it's called. Thinking it's a lore object, I click on it... And die right away. Heck, I didn't even see WHAT killed me.

So I went adcfgxeyvhhtgxgbnigyhvd and died, got back up, scratched my head... Then clicked it again

Having my 1st death shortly after getting my 1st ever vehicle. I quickly learnt that you cant ride off a mountain and down the mountain like you could in SWG. I just fell to my death

Just had another moment the other evening. My main is a Merc, I've been playing since the game came out. If you've ever been on a Bounty Hunter ship, you see they have a little prison cell beside the stairs. Well, I never actually attempted to walk into it, it's a force field right? I walked away from my comp for a bit, and my 10 yo. son is standing at my comp when I come back and he's watching me. I look at my monitor and see I'm in the cell. I start laughing and yelled to my husband that our son imprisoned me and I didn't know how to get out. I asked him how he put me in there because I'm not seeing any buttons or levers to interact with, and while he's laughing his little butt off at me, he says he just walked in

Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?

One problem I have with TOr and many newer mmo's, you longer feel like your toon lives in the world, just playing through it, mmo's are not ment to be played like a single player game they are made to have a toon that grows with the game and the community, there need to be many activities outside of combat, so your toon has a feeling of purpose in the world, most new mmo's fail at this not just ToR /sigh
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Expectations lead to suffering

My biggest fail was on Tatooine, founding that some items rewarded codex entries (Lore Objects), a friend and I found those glowing bones in the middle of Dune Sea, click on it without reading what it was, and we both were dead a couple of seconds later. Months later learned that it was the spawning point for the world boss.
