Your dumbest/unluckiest/stupidest etc. deaths?

Mine was more of an annoyance than anything else.
Level 8 (oh yeah!), normal, act 1, an hour of running around moo moo farm snatching stuff + dodging cows. Fill up stash with cash & pretty decent stuff. Was sorting out inventory when I was doing a quest... a skele archer came by. Didnt realise he was there. RIP. :clap:

I used to have potions in my belt in this order:

1. Healing
2. Mana
3. Rejuvenation
4. Rejuvenation.

After I accidentally pressed 1 while fighting Diablo and died before my fingers reached 3 I decided to change the order:

1. Rejuvenation
2. Rejuvenation
3. Healing
4. Mana

My existing necro has full rejuvs on slots 1 and 2, super healings on slot 3 and greater manas in slot 4.

i had a lot of confidence this day. with my 80 conviction paladin with baranar's star and around 600-700 hp i wanted to clear nm baal by myself for the very first time ( yes i leeched till lvl.80 at nm baal ), i was killing some weak monsters with lust.
i walked a bit there, then i clicked on lvl.3 worldstone door.
to my surprise there was doom mages, but i told myself if im careful and watch what they can on me i wont die ( i was confident. )
i almost killed the 30 mages on that level, taking a lot of care. there was 3 left, i had the initiative to attack a lonely one in a corner ( my attack was Sacrifice ( it was lvl.19 ) ) ...and when about my blade was going to destroy him, to my large surprise, the text that clinged my heart, made my pupils smaller, raised my stress, made me alert jumped in my face.
my mind was completly destroyed.

oh well you learn from mistakes :)

Dumbest, just copying from the RIP thread, level 55 pally in NM CS:
Cause of demise:I was busy doing Diablo while watching the Flames vs Canucks, game 6. The Flames were down 4-0 half way through the second. When they made it 4-4 I was so shocked that I forgot that Lord de Seis was out and I had just walked into his general vicinity...oops. Writing this right before the OT starts ^_^

Unluckiest, apparently not posted in the RIP thread to copy:
Level 45-55 range, don't remember exactly, summoner
After the public rune dupe in season 1 I had a brief stint on classic which started of with an untwinked summoner. Anyways going along just fine with my army of skeletons, find myself in the River of Flame in hell with resists that look something like 70 - 20 - 50 - -30 (fire and lightning are the 70 and 50, I don't recall the correct ordering). Clear the river of flame without incident, approaching the entrance to the CS with caution, doing lots of running forward/backward to keep the skels as infront as possible. Run forward. Fatal Exception Error. Log back in. Ghost.

I've had other fatal exception deaths but I claim that this one was the worst because I was so damned close to getting my first King ><

Also I'm aware that having not-perfect res doing the CS at what is a fairly low level (and therefore fairly low life total) contributed to the death as well as the poorly timed crash, but I'll claim it was all bad luck anyways ^^

Level 60ish Hammerdin vs Stygian Doll in Act 3 Sewers Kurast. Oh, I wonder how much damage a Doll will do if I kill it whilst it is next to me?

More than my 700 life that's what. I did actually laugh at the stupidity of it all.


Oh and my level 69 kicksin. Similar drill, I wonder how much damage a Fire Enchanted Council Member will do? You live and learn.

*hangs head in shame*

I tried pking an 85 pally
at least u died with honor!
i had a hard fight against andy hell, my life was down to almost 100 when she finally died, but the poison was still on, so my life slipped to 1, when i saw this fallen getting revived VERY nearby, so i try evading him, thinking im pretty cool staying in a game when i only have 1 life, and didn't see the fire i was heading in. I actually stood still in it, thinking crap, there goes me lovelee sorcy

I was in a pubby arcane sanctuary game...I was so tired...was awoken a few minutes later to the sound of my barb being hit I opened my eyes just in time to see my new baba fall to the ground dead :eek:

Recently I was killed by IM in NM throne room: after killing 3 waves of minions, one lost oblivion knight decided to enter the throne apparently. Didn't see him, sav only the dreadful animation above my head in the middle of zeal...That was my 5th attempt to build a frost zealot

Damn Eury.... when will you learn?

My latest mistake was running solo baal runs with my Trang necro, just when my ISP was acting wierd. I got kicked in throne room fighting of OBs and Souls :D.

Speaking of IK barbs, my first one in the beginning of Ladder 1, still thinking that IM was the same as it was in 1.09 (hell i could ww with it on me, with 32%+ life leech it barely scratched), figuring that theres no way i could kill myself with 1 concentrate, went to take out knights in wsk 3 carefully 1 by 1, well sure enough IM comes, 1 hit boom deeds, guess i was wrong hehe.
