    Default Twist of Fate

    I searched many topics, but I couldn't find answer to this question:
    - can Twist of Fate abilities (such as Healing Spring etc.) be used in your next life (after TR) in heroic levels? I saw plenty of Primal Screams, Healing Springs, Living Meteor Swarms used in game at very low lvls, but I simply couldn't find exact answer on this question.
    If answer is no, then explanation of using this abilites would be nice.
    Thanks in advance!

    Correction: It is not WAI, but also not an exploit. If it were an exploit, people would be getting banned for using them.

    From some random (maybe trustable) website, the definition of exploit is:

    • 1make full use of and derive benefit from (a resource):


    • 2make use of (a situation) in a way considered unfair or underhand:

    So.. By that definition this is an exploit - as it's considered unfair and underhanded, correct?

    It's a tricky situation. In my opinion if there is no punishment given out for the action, whether it's an exploit or not, then it's only really punishing people that follow the rules. Punishing people for doing the "right thing" should NEVER be the way things work. Either it's an exploit and there should be some repercussions for doing it or no punishments but let everyone do it until it's fixed. What we have right now is some sort of potential threat of maybe getting banned. It may never happen and players know this so they go ahead and exploit anyway. If there won't be a punishment, might as well benefit.

    Honestly, the whole thing should have been fixed almost a year ago. The fact that it's gone on so long only makes people feel more comfortable doing it, while those that see it happening wonder why they are being proxy punished. They don't get the benefit of the exploit (because they are "good" people) while others go around with this extra power level that "lawful" aligned people don't have access to.

    Correction: It is not WAI and IT IS an exploit, the two reasons people aren't getting banned are that: 1. It is not fixed yet 2. If they start banning everyone that uses it the game will die in couple of days instead of the several months that has left

    Turbine already declared it not wai. They also dont discuss actions taken, nor do they allow such to be put on display. Since its not WAI in heroic levels, labeling its use an exploit is the proper term. It also doesnt just happen. There are actions that must be taken in order to finagle it to work that way.

    Whether people have been banned or not doesn't dictate whether something is an exploit. If Turbine decree it's an exploit, then it's an exploit. Anyone using these abilities at low levels knows exactly what they're doing.

    The matter would be moot if all twists were removed from your character when you TR. Can't think of a single good reason why it's not been done already.

    And yet threads about this are still being closed as though it were. Mysterious.

    By that logic, if you're driving down the highway and don't see any cops and no one is getting pulled over, then driving as fast as you want is not illegal even though the speed limit signs indicate the top speed allowed.

    You sound like my brother. His favorite saying is "it's not illegal if you don't get caught". Yeah, it kinda still is. You're just not getting caught.
