Exploits or Clever Use

When you’re so full of yourself you think you know more than the creator of the game. L o l

I hope Feign Death > Freezing Trap doesn’t work. :stuck_out_tongue:

Except I’m citing video evidence and official patch notes of the game in that era. Anybody from the original dev team that coded combat mechanics working on this recreation? No? Ok.

Fairly sure it was confirmed that the Mind Control Buff mob was not a Exploit.
It was deemed put there was a ‘clever use’

/sit is NOT the same as mashing your X button to both sit and then stand:

Normally if you’re sitting down you would not get Reckoning charges from auto-attacks. However, you could gain charges from random NPCs by constantly sitting and standing up due to server lag: mob would try to attack you as your were sitting, so it’d be a forced crit. However, if you stood up just as you were getting hit, the server would see you as if you were standing and get a Reckoning charge.

TLDR - Exploit or not mashing X to gain charges was in vanilla and it was due to spell batching:

Except you’re not. You’ve literally not cited a thing. I don’t think you know what citing is.
