Always Free To Place a Hit On Someone
So, there was an item duplication glitch, which many, many people used in the day. It involved stacking items in your inventory and then dropping them, the exact method escapes me right now. I used this method to multiply scrolls and any other light, valuable item, but I also experimented with it for silly reasons. See, when you multiplied the items and then dropped them, it dropped that many copies of the item in the world, all at a singular point (anyone who has played skyrim and used themselves as a packmule is semi-aware of this). So, I started to see which items were ��funnier" to drop. I duped a handful of items but nothing really stuck out like one of the shields I was duping. When it exploded, it went everywhere, it looked like Captain America was throwing dozens of shields all at once. Aaaaand it made my Runescape game chug, but I didn��t think much of it at the time. ��So", I thought, ��this would be great for my Arena fights, I could literally just pick up a shield with telekenisis to block RS 07 Gold things, or throw it at my opponents for the lulz". So, I made my way out to the arena and set upon my mission. I started duping shields. A lot of shields. My Runescape game started to chug. I, being a naive fool, saved over my latest save, when I was maaaybe pushing 5 FPS. I duped again.The Runescape game, expectedly, crashed.So I reloaded my save. I figured, this can��t be all that bad. Then I tried walking. In the sea of shields, it was like trying to navigate on ice while drunk and watching life through a slideshow. It took me maybe the better part of an hour to escape the arena, and I would occasionally go back to pick up some shields in the hope that maybe, just maybe, I could use the arena like a normal person again.Time passed and eventually I stopped playing Oblivion, but anytime I want a laugh, I��ll boot up that save file and go to the sea of shields, just to show my friends the true dangers of item duping. I had a guild mate who was selling items/pvp rating on WoW (private forum, people were paying cash for BoE items and pvp titles), he was a guild leader of the leading PvE guild on the server. He didn��t have an authenticator and they would do G-DKP pug runs (tons of gold and boe items). Every month or so he would have a friend ��hack him" basically they log into his account from a random computer in the middle of the night (server time) and they would strip the toon and guild bank. Next day he would log in and tell a GM he was keylogged and hacked and all his stuff is gone.The GM would contact him, verify he was indeed ��hacked" and restore all the items and gold. They did that for about a year before they got bored of it, and when ever he got to the gold cap, he would just sell it all for USD. He never did get caught for doing it. Okay, this wasn��t strictly mine, but the brainchild of a friend of mine��s. And I think the statute of limitations has passed since it was like, 14-15 years ago.Back in the EQ early days, crafting was horrible.
