It may not destroy "the economy" but it has destroyed the value of a number of formerly rare and valuable items. Doesn't affect me personally but I can imagine that people who worked hard to get those items -- or even paid real cash for shards to buy them -- might be quite annoyed.
Even if this has existed for a while, the cat is out of the bag now. The silent treatment isn't going to cut it.
How about just rollback the servers where this has taken place. Leave Argo as is. I'd also really like to see the forum explode and I would probably keep and eye on the BBB site for Turbine. They also go nuts when things like this happen! (IE Maban)
It could really be the highlight of the year for DDO! Nothing would be remembered more about 2013. Everyone would know where they were and what they were doing when the Epic Rollback of '13 happened. It would be the first truly epic thing Turbine has done!
OG I better stop before I get too carried away!
In the history of ddo I can only remember 1 rollback, and that was only a few hours after an update many many years ago. Personally I don't want to see a rollback, more a fix. And I don't mean a fix to fix it now, I'm referring to an actual fix, where this won't come back in an update/patch or two later. That to me is the biggest problem with the game. Fixing something one patch, then it breaking once again a few patches later.
Just look at the latest. Saga broke at expansion. Saga fixed at patch. Saga broke same patch. It's type of stuff like that, that makes people lose faith in anything being fixed and staying fixed.
Wait, they didn't even fix the exploit yet?
I can understand the reasoning behind leaving items as they are and not rolling back, but not the reasoning behind not fixing this.
It doesn't break the game, however it does make certain quests alot less likely to be run.
Oh, and when this got released into the wild, so as to speak, I assumed servers would be shut down almost immediately pending a fix, which I assumed would be within a day.

Here is another thread skirting the same issue, https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...-sarlona-is-up
Although my little DDO universe is impacted, I'm not in favor of a rollback. I finally finished heroic Wheloon last night. The scaling/mobs in the last quest was brutal. No, please don't roll back!
Anything that goes in a bag can be duped apparently. Globes of Imperial Blood, Jewelers Toolkits, Tokens of the Twelve, Motes, eberron shards etc. It needs to be fixed ASAP, or Turbine will see a serious drop in the sale of augments/toolkits/true hearts of wood/XP potions and mana pots, just to name a few.
Also, since people have discussed the bug beyond general vagueities, expect this thread to be closed soon as well.

Not sure a rollback is the answer, why punish everyone? Just figure out who exploited and delete their toons. Simple.
The exploit doesn't just effect those who do it, it effects everyone by degrading loot. There isn't much exciting loot-wise in the game as it is - removing the value of what is left is disappointing.
Every time I think Turbine can't possibly behave in an even more inexplicable manner, I'm mistaken. They're hurting us, themselves, everyone except for the cheaters.
It's getting to be where soon the only point in playing will be to drop out of the economy and only use what you get yourself. Or just running stuff for fun with guildies.
I've never witnessed a company destroy its own product in this manner. Would make an interesting B-school case study.
