    Found this on the PoL site

    [Maintenance Details]
    The exploit announced on Jan. 13, 2006, which allowed players to obtain items in an improper way, will fully be addressed.

    I wonder what they are talking about?

    The steal "hack" they specifically mentionned in that day's update... yeah, that.

    Anyone care to guess on what "will fully be addressed" is going to entail? haha...

    I think that might have been the reason..

    It is a low level Mob, but Platinum Beastcoin can be stolen from it. A group of like 3-4 Thieves could have had one Thief steal from it, then run somewhere outside of its "Radius" then hide, and it would respawn like one minute later, and another Thief could do the same Thing.

    Or there really was a hack, that let Thieves steal 100% of the time, but if that was the case, they would have made all monsters' steal items unavailable and not just Movalpolos right?

  14. #14

    The text of the update keeps saying its 3rd party software but I would guess its just a steal bot that repeats forever as opposed to something that really made steal automatic.

    Either way according to what they posted now the countermeasure is pretty simple and in fact what they should have done in the first place if they had any brains, mobs won't recover their stealable item when they respawn after aggro loss outside their radius, the only way to have the mob recover its item will be to kill it and wait for real respawn.

    I dunno how the fuck you can nerf steal...

    I'm lucky to steal successfully once in dynamis (3 1/2 hours...210/5 = 42 attempts)

    Was day 2 Behemoth for us, so I doubt it's that

    Unless SE hates Lakshmi

    This is the 3rd [emergency] maintence in a row that's reset the kings from day 5+....Vin hates Lakshmi.

  20. #20

    So? maintenances are great. (Generally) they reset kings into NA windows. And day 2 after a maintenance is like a day 5+ anyway (kings have a high high chance of popping on day 2 after maintenance).

    I think it's great...kings were just slipping into JP windows anyway (and since there is only one JP LS that camps kings on our server, they go out of their way to keep it in their time by not claiming). This bumps it back our way.
