Your Most Expensive (or Embarassing) Death(s)

Recommended Posts

Fess up. It happens to the best of us. There's no sense denying it. What's the most you've lost at once? How did it happen? Did you rage quit for six months after it happened?

 

A few years ago I died at LRC with a Dragon Pickaxe when they were still ~17m for going AFK a litte too long (I don't know how I had anything on that protected over it). I always wear a Ring of Life now when I'm there, and it's saved my ass more times than I'd like to admit. :P

 

A few years before that I died wearing full Rune (t), Rune Boots (back when they were still 200k), and a host of other valuables in the Ape Atoll dungeon during Monkey Maddness. I soon learned that expensive, cosmetic gear isn't practical during dangerous quests. This was long before the six, twelve, or fifteen minute gravestones.

 

I also once lost my Fighter Torso while penguin hunting on Neitz or Jatz (can't remember which). I was owned by those damn trolls before I knew what was happening. BA assault points went towards the Penance Horn after that, and I never reclaimed another one.

Mine wasnt particularly an embarrassing death in game, but my IRL reaction to it.

 

It was in my first year or so of playing, back in '04ish, and I had just hit 40 def in f2p. SO I take my shiny new full rune set, the entire 200k of it, straight into the varrock wildy. Got murdered. So my 9 year old self screams at the computer, slams my hand on the desk, force shut down the comp and dont log in for a month. My mom was in the next room and just smirked and went back to her book.

Wait, he killed me once too. [bleep].

 

Good fight.

 

None of my deaths have been particularly expensive/embarassing, but there are a few bad ones from my noob days (inb4 you're still a noob jokes) that spring to mind. Once I was at the wizards south of Fally when someone told me that he would pay me 10k after I killed a certain number of them. Every time I reached the number he would raise it. When I got low on HP I ran to my bank in search of food, but the only thing I had was a cup of tea. However, I was desperate (and stupid), so I went back to kill more wizards. I eventually died and lost the majority of my bank (green dhide/mithril sets).

I've died so many times on RS my friends are more shocked when I don't.

 

Most embarrassing was probably the time I was slaying banshees, and hadn't got ear muffs on. By the time I noticed, I was dead. It was just after graves were added, so fortunately I didn't lose anything, but the clan I was in laughed at me for ages after that one.

Lost like 10m + rapier the other day when protecting a friend from those pathetic stand-under-vex-above-CT-entrance people. I've died a few times during slayer as well, due to not paying attention, but never lost anything.

 

Once I died at DKs, with Kota and Foo, and right when I died they got a Daxe split. This was like 3 years ago, so I got sorta mad/pissed for losing out on that epic 500k split.

Years back, I made a bit of a mistake: Teleporting to falador instead of my house, with my cashpile in my inventory. Oh, it was a PvP world aswell. :sad:

Died with two party hats and 110k arrows in rsc, at the shilo undead creatures.

Forgot the gasmask when I went there to trade with Fist of god.

 

Got killed once when going to chaos tunnels, had pray pots in inv but no food.

Got bound and maged to death

To make matters worse, i went back to grave and pick up whatever I didnt loose but could still use.

Ended up attacking the guy, skulling and losing the remainder of my gear.

First, most embarrassing:

Reluctantly went with a friend and two of his when the box method was still viable at SaradominGWD. I was told nothing other than "stay in the corner" before we went into the boss room. Of course that same friend ran out of the corner after successful kill 1 and beautiful miss Zilyana came onto me. "Oh, she's wielding a Saradomin Sword, I should protect from melee." Wrong. Fried to death. Someone blessed my grave but left immediately after. Lost about 2.5m in god armor because I almost died again with very little time left when I finally got to my stuff...

I probably died at corp (who didn't before gano?) at some point but don't remember losing anything important.

I died another time at GWD, this time to Graardor, with that same friend (go figure). I was in void, expecting him to tank which he couldn't handle. 2 hit. Thankfully I got all of my stuff back that time, though.

 

More noble:

Earlier than any of that there was a time I felt like quitting so I went on a rampage through the Wilderness. Clad in full (self-made) Skeletal (with ramskull ;) ) I wreaked havoc with charged Flames of Zamorak from Edge to Mage Bank, causing many shit kids to teleport before finally succumbing at MB lever. Probably would've gotten further if I'd had any food and my last opponent hadn't been a black dhide ranger with MSB. Good story.

Died at aberrant spectres once when I equipped a rune full helm drop just to see what they looked like now. When my health shot down I got confused and started drinking ppots :L Only realized what happened after I died.

 

DC'd and lost my kiln cape at corp. Was with friends luckily so they kept my other gear for me.

 

Before the removal of the wilderness, I died for full rune more times than I can count. The one I remember best being when I was in edgeville dungeon, and I saw a ranger there. I thought rangers were weak, so attacked him. He was in black hides and had a magic shortbow, and continually hit in the 15-20 range on me. MSB spec finished me off, and I had more respect for rangers after that.

Last time I can remember getting smashed, was at KBD. I didn't realize I had to drink a super anti-fire because I didn't see the chat message or hear the sound telling me to. Then suddenly I was getting hit with 2000's, and tried panic eating but he ended up killing me. Luckily, I was with a good friend who blessed my grave and I got everything :)

 

To be honest; it happens to the best of us, every once in a while. It HAS to happen eventually; it's just good business.

 

Last 2 times I died super recently was at Frost Dragons. It was like the first day I had a lot of time to play and learn about EoC, so I went to Frosts thinking that I'd make some bank while learning. Little did I know that EVERYTHING got changed, not just your health. Between a couple/few dragons attacking me with every combat style + I got blue orb'd + dragonfired. I couldn't panic eat/teleport/repot fast enough. But then suddenly I clicked the "wrong" potion and flipped out because I thought I was boned. Turns out I drank my supper antifire, which "saved" me. I clicked my Varrock tele tab abouttt 34 times before it worked I'd say. :) As my character appeared in Varrock, I died. This happened to me TWICE. The second time took longer until I got overtaken by multiple dragons, as I stayed in one small area.

First expensive death: Dying to troll generals and losing an obby set (Shield and cape, back in the days where they costed nearly 1m for the set). I was new to members, and I haven't gotten used to using protection prayers (there wasn't all much to protect at all in f2p)

 

Most expensive: Dying to a Mithril dragon and losing a set of ranger boots and various other gear

 

Most Painful: Dying in Tarn's Lair with my very first fire cape (the very same one in my avatar). Bizzarely, while I had guthan set, I didn;t have it on me at the time, so I saved my spear.

 

Most embarrassing: Dying to Dharok in post EoC Barrows, right outside the chest. Irony points to the fact that the last time I died to him (which was nearly 5 years ago), I died on the exact same spot (I stood on the spot the first time, i ran to the same spot a second time). Lost 1m in barrows repair cost, ouch...

Do you still hear the screaming at night?

 

 

I've never actually died with a lot of stuff, but then again I never had much reason to enter the wilderness, aside from when I used to mine runite.

Can think of a few embarrasing stakes

 

lost a 2bil stake from using a 0% broken rapier.

lost 500m in full torva + vls/ely, to someone with claws + bandos

Ive lost bils to misclicks but nothing can be helped about those.

Lost loads as well to using EEE rather than rapier in rapier stakes

If you count staking, losing 2X Blue stake would be my most expensive.

 

I guess most embarassing was a 200m box where I had a solid 400 LP lead (Pre EoC, it was about his 200lp vs my 600) went to go and make a cup of tea, came back to me dieing with him on redbar. Even with his bs comeback, I'd have probably won if I'd carried on switching.

The only memorable death I can think of is dying trying to do Fremmy isles, those trolls tore me to pieces before I got to the dungeon. I lost quite a bit (For me back then, probably ~500k) and didn't attempt again for another few days though my second attempt went fine. I've died plenty of times at bosses and quests (And metal drags when I slayed, super antifires are a double edged sword when not paying attention) but never had much of an impact.

Before eoc when I was chinning I wasn't paying any sort of attention and ran our of prayer. Sadly I brought around 20k chins which so I ended up losing like 15m. To top it all off my internet decided to lag out for a solid 10 minutes after the fact.

Yesterday, I was doing A Soul's Bane. Well, if there weren't abilities, I wouldn't have survived at all. Then I got to Tolna, and he creamed me. I lost my crossbow bolts... I will never use the bolt pouch again!!!

i used to love wearing sara dhide with robin set, i'm not sure on the prices but the sara hide was over 1m at the time so guessing the robin set was at least 10m+, i lost them about 4 times through lag deaths at steel dragons, which is fine

 

but on time i was there, killing away, i got my first ever dragon spear drop, was going round telling everyone like woo d spear! then i thought to equip it and see how much it damaged the dragons, forgetting it was 2h and would remove my shield, getting meleed and dragon fired in range gear and no shield, yeah, i lasted a couple of seconds, oopsie
