I ask because I now realize that the bug I complained about 2 days ago, that nobody cared about, might be an exploit.
So, the game is not reading completions in regards to bravery bonus. I wrote about this two days ago, and one other forumite confirmed. At least in the new pack.
This bugs me because I want to run Overgrowth on normal, for the ML 22 Wall of Wood. I'd much prefer 20% heal amp than 30%. And I don't want to get rid of my BB to do it.
Anyway, after completing on Heroic Elite, which I did so I could run it on another setting without getting rid of my BB streak, I saw that it didn't work. Then I ran it on Epic Hard, again when going in on Epic Normal, it didn't work. It still gives the warning that I would lose my Bravery Bonus. It is confirmed that it is not a visual error.
But I realized, what I actually did, was an exploit, not a bug.
Since I first did it on Heroic, as a level 24, I should NOT have gotten a bravery bonus when doing it on Epic Hard. BUT I DID. On accident of course, I didn't really think about it at the time, but it was an exploit. I got a bonus I didn't qualify for (and didn't want, btw).
I didn't think about it at the time... but then I realized, after it STILL didn't let me complete on Epic Normal without reseting BB, that maybe my BB would still apply if I went in on another setting. So I went in on Epic Elite. And BB was still applying. This would have been my third completion. I didn't complete (I didn't think I could solo EE... though who knows).
So, Devs, this is no longer a bug that hurts players. It is an exploit. Maybe you'll fix it now.
I know at least one other person confirmed this in the new quest pack. I wonder if it is true in all quest packs, or just these? Some confirmation would be nice.
Oh, and I'll bug report this the day they fix the bug reporter in game.
P.S. I do NOT want to exploit the game. I want to be able to run it on EN without getting rid of my BB streak. It's pretty high right now, and I enjoy that, mostly for sentimental reasons. Also, I absolutely loathe exploits. But I also know that the Devs will do nothing to fix a bug unless I can find a way to turn it into an exploit. Which is sad.
