Default Useful "Exploit"

I wont bother sending ticket but all people should know this bug. (Because if I did I would demand punishment for the abuser - something that won't happen.)

What you need:
A high lvl pet (so it wont miss)
And a strong DoT spell

Cast Dot on Pet and send it to attack the target.
Care, pet must have <100 hp when it attacks. Closer to 1 the better of course.
Your target will reflect damage "instantly" and pet will die. (Stupid coder: 1st comes reflect damage then damage).
Result your target will have karma for killing a pet. (It wont increase pk count of course but still he will have karma)

An exploit that can be used on bots. Unfortunately it can be used for any reason. It' up to individuals. Everyone has his own moral values and respects or not the others and himself.

keep in mind this only works if the target has something that will reflect damage.
Such as a Frintezza necklace or if they use Daring Sonata.
If your target doesn't have reflect jewels and doesn't use daring sonata then your pet will just flag and you will become an easy target

This is not exactly a bug, but it is a game mechanic flaw that has been overlooked. It will be reported so that it can be fixed. Meanwhile, if this functionality is found to be abused it may be publicly declared as an exploit, meaning offenders may face consequences.

So If I use it in 5minute ingame to test it right, since you didn't flagged it as an exploit no consequences ?

You'll probably only get in trouble for using it if someone reports you. I doubt they'll comb their logs for abusers.

Or if someone like me is present who captures it on video and shows his server who the real "nice" people are.....

you know it might be considered an exploit so I wouldn't attempt it because you get the wrong GM on a bad day you might not get a warning

Default Re: Useful "Exploit"

Basically this "exploit" is not a big deal until players abuse it so much that it becomes a big deal. Yes, that is a relative opinion, but if players negatively affected by it petition the GMs to say they've been victimized by abuse of this function, the likelihood of the function becoming a "bannable exploit" increases drastically. Abusers that lead to it becoming a bannable exploit may receive a temp ban, but more serious consequences will occur if someone abuses it after we publicly declare it as an exploit.

Bottom line: don't do it.

We're sending this as a bug report and it will be fixed so that it cannot be abused like this.

Can we still use these on those 24/7 afk player? if they get negative rep then they can't gain any xp correct? if so it may be the best effective anti-afk player? anything to keep them from gaining any xp/lvl. even if each mob is 5+ rep point, having -70,000 negative rep should spoil their auto afk day/week.
