    exploiting(?) Golden Salvage assault

    having SMN leveled, this is my assault of choice atm. as most of you know, SMN can run in with carby out, check a box, and then run out of range while carby auto-attacks it until you find the correct one. it works, but can take a long time if unlucky

    i've been hearing rumors that it's possible to tell which box is correct before checking it. i'm NOT talking about .dat swapping, i know that was patched a while ago. i'm not sure of the specifics, but i believe it has something to do with trying to open the box while being out of range?

    does anyone have any idea what i'm talking about? ;

    I don't think you can tell which box is which without doing the .dat swap. I've done it probably a hundred times and not once have I seen a difference between any of the chests in appearance.

    I was talking about the check the chest outta range exploit, unless....

  8. #8

    Go up to the box and check it while getting the "You must move closer" message, if the cursor moves it is the real chest, if the cursor stays it's a fake chest.

    Now, go spam it.

    ****EDIT****
    This still works as of yesterday.

    i wasnt telling ppl this because it might get gimped soon, but yes,

    check a chest
    if you get the "you must move closer message" you are out of range.

    now, when you get this, if the arrow disappears, its the right one

    if the arrow stays, its a mob.


    easily the dumbest hack ever, but its an exploit , my ls uses golden savages to farm for salvage.

    I'm sorry it lacks the finesse of real hacks that you're used to

    whilst great, I still stand by the LC assault for Mamool Ja being the best return on tags for 3 people. Its alot more fun to.

    You actualy can solo it as in get all the points for youself, have the other 2 people in your PT DC while you are on the last menu to enter Assault waiting to click "Yes", then you can enter on your own and get all the points. Other 2 people will still keep their tags.

    Not that it matters since it's so easy anyways, but does this trick work on the Mimics in Apollyon?

    For Raw points farming for Salvage my favorite is C Mamool, the one with the Rat spies. It's incredibly easy with 3 people and usually doesn't take long at all, average of 5-8 minutes depending on how confusing the rats try to be.

    It doesn't work in Limbus. I always wondered why they didn't make Golden salvage chests/mimics work the way it does now since it always has(i think) in Limbus and on the chest BC

    I have my chest dats swapped, and SE did infact fix it in the assault, hell i didnt even know it worked until we got to the last chest and i saw my swapped dat. now they all look like chests.

    I swapped dats for this assault and now appolyon is really scary because there's a dozen Fafhoggs scattered around the area and then when we fight them my LS acts like it doesn't know about spike flail.
