    What about a hotfix that disables "auto gather" whilst you fix the underlying issue.

    game builds take time to complete/deploy. I'll have more info about that as well.

    So, what are we looking at as far as discipline for those who duplicated items, but not for profit. the above OP post indicates that people who were abusing the shard exchange will be subjugated for discipline.. but i could be mistaken

    Thank you for taking action so quickly. I wondered why some rare items started to get posted for cheap prices. Can you please make sure the the ill gotten astral shards and items are taken away, and that the accounts are also banned as a punishment? Tell me it's not like the last exploit where people filled a whole bank full of tomes and then got banned for 1-2 days, but still got to keep everything. That made no sense at all...

    That would be incorrect. We're currently investigating beyond the shard exchange (which takes time, but we'd rather review the reports carefully this time to avoid the type of issues that were experienced a while back in Mabar).

    Probably means 5 day bans instead of 3 day.

    What happens to legitimate auctions on the Shard exchange?

    I had placed a bit on a shortsword:

    will this auction run it's course and I win?
    Is it "paused" for the time being?

    So, can you foretell what the expected outcome for those who used this duplication process will be? and what will be done with all the materials obtained from it? with how long it has been in game.. will it require a rollback or will it be something less drastic? permaban or tempban... (sorry to flood you with questions, i just know a lot of people who used this and would like to know what will happen)

    I guess we'll never know...

    How many days does it take to get to the center of the banhammer: 1, 2, 3 (/crunch)...3!

    Wait, I didn't realize the extent of this until I saw the screenshots of stacks of 100s of scales and heard about hundreds of lvl 25-28 augments and true globes of imperial blood being created https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...y-ruined/page2. If Turbine doesn't reverse the stacks of 100s of these items people created, and ban them, I am leaving the game. I have spent 4 years building up my fortune and storing it in items like scales. If Turbine made these obsolete overnight, and don't reverse the damage, I am quitting the game. No need to have my fortune completely obliterated because someone else exploited.

    You might as well cancel now and uninstall, you know they won't do that, everything in their past history is against it happening.

    You play on a server that was only mildly affected. I really would not be too concerned if I was you. The marginal impact will quickly fade, perhaps unlike other servers.
    Git off mah lawn!

    If, If's and But's was Candies and Nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas.
