Another day, another Neverwinter exploit. This time it's virtual immortality and the ability to almost instantly kill your target.
As a bonus, it has apparently been abused since the Founder head start... Just like most of them. The Guardian Fighter is once again given the ability to one shot enemies, but this time God mode is included as well.
Now I really didn't want to pick on Neverwinter today. Honestly, I already had a Trion post partially typed up - but when I discovered this little tidbit, I just had to share.
Guardian fighters have a little feat called Reckless Attacker.
Carefully take a look at what it does: You gain bonus Power proportional to how much Guard meter you have remaining. When your Guard meter is full you gain 100% additional Power.
Seeing as how we can use Cheat Engine and set our Guard to be whatever we want, try setting it at a few thousand. Now freeze it. Congratulations, you just won the game.
Instantly kill ANY enemy in the game while being completely immune yourself. The video I was asked not to share showed a Guardian Fighter solo clearing Epic Castle Never and all mobs within in less than 10 minutes.
So there you go Guardian Fighters, you can once again be superman!
When will MMOG developers learn? If you commit to not wiping the game (basically making it live), do not release it with so many bugs and expect them to never surface.
No proof, but possible/probable:
I had this exact tip from 7 different people, so I don't want to disregard it... But I saw no screenshot or video proof.
If you are a Trickster Rogue, you can use your Cloud of Steel forever by freezing the value in Cheat Engine to it's maximum valid number.
Edit: I was unable to reproduce the CoF bug, but that does not mean it's not real.
