I had no idea how to swim when I first started playing. In order to do the Buzzbox 411 (the Thrasher Eyes one), I repeatedly jumped off of a boat until I was submerged enough to see underwater while still high enough to breath. I also had no idea that the auction house existed and sold my ores and skins to vendors, thinking that was how I made money with those professions. *facepalm*

I never had quite that problem with swimming since you submerge in the water immediately, but the first time I died while underwater I had some real issues trying to get back to my body -- I didn't realize that even though you run on water while dead you can still get underwater by aiming yourself downward.

This is actually a fairly common problem. I've been in PuG groups (before the dungeon finder) for both Sunken Temple and Underbog where we wiped, then members of the group complained that we couldn't complete the instance because "You can't go underwater as a ghost". Despite attempts to explain to them that, yes, it IS possible (Look at me! I'm already back in the instance and rezzed), and attempts to explain how to do it, it actually killed that Sunken Temple group I was in. >.>
