Just a question because I dont really know much about exploits.
If I play conjurer, start a guild leve, get the buff, join a party and then spam heal - how am i cheating?
I play conjurer because I want to be a healer - surely then using my core spell is well within the intended role of my class. I appreciate that I might level up quickly but why would that be cheating.
I hasten to add that I have not deliberately used this "exploit" - the fact that I am only lvl 12 will probably confirm that for you but I have spammed heal during leve quests in a group. Of course I have, im a healer.
I have no idea what this "exploit" is, nor if what people think is an exploit actually is. What you described is obviously not.
Apparently on some servers, healers are hitting high levels already by doing the following.
Form a group on conjurers
Start a leve quest - get the exp buff
Spend 30 minutes spamming heal without attacking the mobs
each heal landed scores conj exp at a high rate due to buff
conj levelling up very quickly.
Apparently some servers already have conj's in the high 40's though I have seen no evidence of this, by using this "exploit".
