    Use the bug that crashes people when they recall to your advantage!

    I'm not sure if I could get in trouble for this but

    A script miner in Atl just got kicked off. Just kept dragging runes to ground and to backpack when he recalled away.

    Actually, I don't care if I can get in trouble for it.

    that's actually kinda creative and funny lol... that's probably the best use of a bug i've heard in a long time :)
     
  3. The problem is, if one person can use this against a person script mining, it can be used against an honest person to crash-kill-loot.

    Needs to be fixed. I hate script miners too, just not the way to deal with them.

    Yup. I get excellent ore when I use them. Now can I help it if my mage/miner gets a valorite one? She's not the best at the big daddies.

    Sometimes I have to cut and run like some folks. Just happens that a few of the caves and locations I use are used by other folks as well. :)

    I've recalled into my fair share of elementals over the years btw. Just a risk you take while mining.
