The Daily Grind: Do you use bugged items to your advantage?


Did you hear about the latest bit of ArcheAge tomfoolery? There’s this mirage donkey mount available in the game’s loyalty point store. It was bugged, and the bug basically allowed players to ride it backwards for a huge speed buff while carrying trade packs, thereby allowing faster trade runs and quicker money-making.

Lots of players bought the bugged donkey specifically because of its bug, and one of these upstanding individuals even had the stones to ask Trion for a loyalty point refund now that the exploit is fixed. That’s not even the best part, though. Would you believe that Trion is actually granting the refunds?!

How about you, MassivelyOP readers? Have you ever knowingly used a bugged item to your advantage?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
