BUG stetzer bug and it being exploited

Post by sarahangel » 10 Mar 2009, 22:31

I just wanted to bring it to the attention of the developers that there is a bug in regards to the stetzer quest and people are exploiting it as well to leech XP from other players. I was not sure if you were aware of it nor if exploiting it was abuse which is why i am posting this here.

If you take a look at this post and the screen shots, you can see someone admitting to using the exploit and then telling others about said bug.
Rather than linking you to the forums I will simply link you all again to the screenshots, which btw are not mine.

The bug has one of two successful results:

1) the player gets a forest bow with a range of 1 which delivers setzer weapon damage and removes 1 arrow per attack.

or

2) the player gets a setzer with a range of 7 which delivers forest bow damage and removes no arrows per attack.

In both cases, the inventory window shows both the setzer and forest bow as being equipped. The equipment window shows only one weapon. Equipping a shield disables the bug.

The 'positive' result is a faster attack with the forest bow at a greater range for which you don't need to buy iron arrows.

The only danger to the bug user is that the player must drop valuable items on the ground to arrange their inventory.

This should already be fixed on the test server. The main server will get it soon.

Similar exploits of this bug with armor/shield/robe will be fixed as well? I assume they will, but it never hurts to state the obvious.
