    Hey now! I know a few players that can tr and raid!!! They just did their tr'ing before Turbine decided to pass out all the xp goodies and make a double tr an 8 hour cakewalk.

    Argh, I'll go hide in the corner and cry. Awesome job Shaatan. Sadly, we all know some people will come demanding AA nerfs, because we all know that since one person can do this, that class split / build / similar ones are definitely OP!

    Regarding the completionist, I've seen people who are one, suck at endgame AND at leveling! Go figure
    Obviously the exact opposite is probably more common

    LOL, before anyone takes my comment too seriously, it's a bit of an inside joke. Obviously there are exceptions both ways, but they require distinct, and only a little overlapping, skillsets and mindsets. One should not assume extraordinary competence in one naturally imply the same great performance in the other.

    Nice work.

    But makes me wonder ... would all this be possible if AAs did not get infinite ammo? Go and do with real, non returning arrows next time, haha XD.

    Hmm... theoritically I could just have an inventory page full of quivers with a couple thousands of arrows in each of them, so it should be possible. The other thing is that swapping quivers/arrows while kiting those big guys would probably be a big pain lol.

    Yeah no kidding, it would sort of resemble drinking pots on a caster I guess of which you cant really get an unlimited amount (we all have limited bank accounts I assumeI). But yeah overall point was that for super long soloes with no shrines at all AA is a very convenient choice because of the unlimited ammo, which is nice. (I am not trying to disparage your achievement btw, so dont get me wrong XD)

    So basically, if u do again with real arrows, ull get twice the respect from me Should be fun, but dont be obligated to do so :P

    Just a quiver of alacrity filled with 1500 regular arrows, 1500 +3 arrows, and 1500 cold iron arrows (basically, any 3 different types so they can all go in the quiver), 100 arrows loaded, and an inventory page of arrows is 6600 without having to manually reload at all. Seems like a lot to me, but then again I can easily pop off a thousand silver arrows in a full party ToD while also solo healing it, so...

It's not exactly safe either, the giant of silence can still throw rocks at you when you aggro him... 100-150 damage every few seconds.
    I know there are at least 4 safe spots. Until they're all checked I'm not sure that this is true.

    Most people don't brag about exploiting, since it makes it a lot easier to catch them.

    1 thing is to solo it, and another is to post it

    it's like the guy who posted the safe spot

    or the guy who posted the shears

    1 thing is when you do it, another is when you post it

PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    Not really.

    If he reports all the players better than him and gets them all banned, the game will probably only last a couple more days before it's out of business...

    Gotta love this mentality of:
    *If someone is worse than me, he's a noob*
    *If someone is better than me, he's a no lifer*
    *If someone is better than me and I think I'm the best, he's clearly a cheater*

    There is no point in defending myself because anyone can just come and say that he knows about some exploit and this must ve been done this way, because he cant do it normal way himself and his great grandmother was a gypsy fortune teller, so he clearly saw me using that I was exploiting in his prophetic dream.

    If you think that I cheated in any way to get any of my achievments done, report me. If you are right, I ll be banned and your problem will be solved. Thank you.
    should just tell them if it's so easy to go do it themselves :P should be easy, right?
