slick!it is not the oldest but definitely one of the best for me was back around 2008 i was playing on Zek when they introduced the Ancient Heroes missions the ones that give the McKenzie's Special Brews. For some reason they put all the loot that was going to be available for purchase with the Brews on the PvP vendor in the main hub of the bazaar and it was all for purchase with PvP points, mind you this stuff was 950hp when all my gear was like 500 - 600hp. The vendor was up for about 48 hours then SOE announced that during the week they would be logging in every one in one by one and taking any gear back that was gotten from PvP points . luckily i had a good idea and i sold all my armor and augs to the vendor and placed the stack of Brews in a middle bag of my bank, logged on the FV server and put a trader up for a week and did not log out or back on Zek at all. When i came back i checked the bag and sure as shit big stack of brews !!! I bought all the gear and augs full set every slot and got to keep them until i outgrew them in the next expansions
Ahh, my memory's failing me, I can't remember the zone, but there was a zone with that green goo model I can picture clearly in my mind - and if you stood in one spot it would come towards you, move just 1 little bit to the side and it would run away. Being a necro with root + DoT tactics, and root constantly breaking - it really saved my bacon a few times being able to move over just a bit and have the extra time to either reroot or to feign death. ARGH! Why can't I remember the zone or the named that spawned there.Original Crystal Caverns you could stand on some of the rocks and the orcs would kite back and forth never able to reach you.
Other one was weird and totally useless (plus inconsistent results)... but you jumped on / off the platform in the moat before Halas and unequipped / reequiped your weapon it would bug out and temporarily give you a weapon skin of an open book instead of the weapon.
I did the same thing in Blackburrow. haha!Karnor's Castle during Kunark release, aggroing through the wall to pull the hand downstairs. I remember people getting in trouble for that. This was the first exploit I remember. I was bad. I remember shooting arrows down the "well" in Blackburrow just to aggro the mobs below, zoning out as thousands of gnolls came up. Then zoning back in lmao at the poor groups below!
...and then there were the good old days when there was no emote on who broke the chanter's mez.... /ducks
Yeah, I tried everything after they corrected the illusion thru door trick. Then I gave up and made a rogue.I haven't tried to do it in a long time, but have you guys ever done the camping door trick? Used to be if a door was locked you could put your back up against it, camp out, log in, camp out, log in, and everytime you did you moved slightly backwards - eventually you'd be on the other side of the door.
Rofl, wait... did you say necros were OP??I don't think it's the earliest exploit i 'knew' of... but the only exploit i really found on my own and was able to use was back during RoF at some point, i discovered necromancers when F2P that had rank 2 swarm pet spell were stupidly over powered. Back then the swarm pets were unlinked so 3 generations of pets would be 300k+ dps.... Add in bard auras.... Another necro... Or two or three.
Was 1 grouping the corrupted ntov dragons in era... Sick dps and endless tanks... Used to be a lot of fun doing some of the dragons with the hiding from ae stuff and moving out
Never tried final dragon, that was never gonna happen :-P
On the same token, doing group content/missions/hunter just running around with a single necro and bard smashing stuff
Nowadays the quickest way to level by rez is just to leave a few corpses around and wait for the weekly server crash. : )There was a res bug right after Kunark came out? If you had two different types of res, 99% and 90%? You would get credit for both and increase your exp by that amount. I never got to try it out. It was a patch message that came out but after I looked it up some people were using it to PL quickly to 60.
