So as Lib suggested I'm opening up this megathread to discuss the current exploits in the game and how we should punish players that are caught in the act. I'll be updating this post when someone reports an exploit/cheat, as well as the proposed penalties so that the devs avoid having to read every single post.

Current Exploits/Cheats:

1 - AFK Farming: the player AFKs in a monster-spawning area, leaving his/her character unattended automatically killing all the mobs, getting XP points and gold without playing the game.
Counter-measures: CAPTCHA mechanic, already implemented.
Penalties:
- 24 hour ban after 1st offense, 1 month ban after 2nd offense, permanent ban after 3rd and final offense;
- Warning, 24hr ban, 1 month ban after every offense;

2 - Multi-raiding: Several players group together, each one entering a different instance of a raid, allowing for a faster farming and a bigger chance at quality drops.
Counter-measures: To be determined.
Penalties:
- 24 hour ban after 1st offense, 1 month ban after 2nd offense, permanent ban after 3rd and final offense;
- Warning, 24hr ban, 1 month ban after every offense;

3 - Botting: Use of a 3rd party program to automate the game.
Counter-measures: To be determined.
Penalties:
- 24 hour ban after 1st offense, 1 month ban after 2nd offense, permanent ban after 3rd and final offense;
- Permanent ban, upon 100% confirmation;

I would also like to know from the Devs regarding having a second account and playing both simultaneously is a rule violation.

Don't personally believe it should be unless you got a third party program playing the second character which will be like botting/multiboxing.

@Streak I don't think one guy being afk in party should be a rule violation if someone want to boost a friend or w/e I got a hard time seeing you need to force the players to be 100% active and not idle.

What would be the best solution is you can only roll on loot if you are in the raid so you can't be outside doing nothing or do other things while your friends boost you. So you have to choose from helping them or do nothing but you still have to be inside the raid.

After confirmation from the devs that these are/aren't exploits I'll update the OP.

Was thinking about that last line, players not able to roll on raid loot outside of the raid itself. Yeah, it shouldn't happen, but is it an exploit? If you enter the raid and stay still at the entrance, you'll always be able to roll on loot even if you're not helping. It's different, I know, because outside the raid you can get some other things done while being able to roll on that loot, but still, wondering if we can call that an exploit.

Ah okay, yea as long the guy which is getting "boosted" is in the raid itself I don't care what hes doing afk/doing hes noodle damage or just walking in circles.

What I don't like is being able to get loot while not being in the raid at all and maybe questing or even worse in another raid.

Looking pretty decent.

My personal ruling would be, however, I am only 1 of 3 people who make those decisions.

1) Warning, 24hr ban, 1 month ban after every offense.
2) Warning, 24hr ban, 1 month ban after every offense.
3) Permanent ban, upon 100% confirmation.

Only for a week on the forums, I told him that he was allowed to return, provided he acts mature. Any other issues, permanent ban. I'm being a bit more lenient because of the fact he was using a translator, so, some things may be coming out incorrectly.

However, this ban also extends to the game. If you see him on, please feel free to let me know and I will login and ban him for a week.

Haha I saw him in game a few days ago... As I walked by him he called me a noob... my response as I sat in my chair was laughter. I wanted to tell him how dumb he was but it was not worth my time. I also like how his character is permanently stuck by the boat by the /fell spot... It is like he is a statue dedicated to telling people not to cheat ;)
