    Yeah, sounds like it's only about griefing other people. There is so much more than that, but it's not driving players away, I guess.

    When the hell did trapped pouches become an "exploit"? It was never an exploit on the original servers, and in case you want to argue that it was... well, no it was not.

    I believe Chris (the server owner, aka Telamon) is saying that some exploits are commonly known and deliberately not removed from the game because they are an accepted part of gameplay. This includes trapped pouches, locking the door to public houses for the vanity sign, boxes that stay open even when locked, and runebooks that work at a distance among other systems.

    My understanding of what he's saying is that when an exploit is used to kill other players, dupe items, or otherwise damage the server in a reasonably direct way is when it becomes a jailing issue and, if continued after a warning has been received, a potential banning issue.

    So... let's make this common knowledge. That way, noone has a disadvantage. How does it work? At least PM me :D

    Step 1: open a runebook you want to use from say.... a bank.
    Step 2: go hunting and leave the book open.
    Step 3: don't close the book.
    Step 4: when ready to use the book, use it as normal.

    the end.

    I will mention one of the more secretive ones: You are able to throw pots 2-3 times faster than the normal pot delay timer would allow you. I figured it out, while experimenting, but I dont use that as I dont pvp because of bad ping for European players. And as long as all my bug reports considering thieving or pvm are ignored, I never bothered to report it.

    I know that AT LEAST one of the pvpers considered among the best of UOR knows that trick too. I have seen him use the “machine gun“© method on a event mob once. This is a huge advantage in pvp and definitely a exploit of bad code.

    That's Blackeye's claim I just echoed it because I believe him to be honest and knowledgeable in spite of his profession.

    I honestly have no idea.

    Puck described it. It's pretty common knowledge. At some point everybody should have a bank RB opened and wonder why it is still open when running away from the bank.

    Now, go and figure out how to machine gun people with explo pots. I am sure, the first one to report it will be handsomely rewarded.

    @Puck Thank you! :)

    @BlackEye At least you can tell me! I would consider this a small compensation for my favorite force spear someone with the name Silas Blackeye stole from me on Dagger Isle the day before yesterday ;) (btw: nicely done).

    I am not Silas BlackEye. But I am happy to hear that someone else from the BlackEye clan (lol, how many more might be out there?!) is a skilled thief and good story teller.

    Yeah, seems to be a common name on this shard - like Smith in USA/UK or Schmidt in Germany :)

    Nein, ganz und gar nicht gewöhnlich. Nur hat ein neuer Dieb entschieden, meinen Namen zu benutzen. Vielleicht als Hommage oder so. ;)

    In dem Fall bitte ich um aufrichtige Entschuldigung für die Verwechslung :)

    This can be done via scripting. It is huge in OSI servers. I've seen it here too, but long as you stay your distance away (after recognizing what is going on), you can easily abuse anyone using it in PvP. @Broli knows who I am referring too. Rofl.

    Works better in pvm when a mob isn't moving though.


    Disclaimer: I hardly ever use Explo Pots (except killing AFK people in houses). Proof is, die to me with Explo Pots on your corpse. They will be thrown on your dead mount corpse or exploded all around me in a wonderful display of exlopedy fireworks!!

    theres a core of vets on this server that exploit alot sadly gms seem to turn a blind eye to it because they are vets which hurts new players an causes them to move on to fairer servers
