I didn't hack, simply put the time and effort into figuring it out, using in-game dynamics to defeat the boss, which is what we all do when trying to defeat a boss mob and acquire uber phat lewtz.
I also SHARED the information so ANYONE in ANY CLAN interested, with the means and the patience to actually perform the task could also do it.
Now that being said, figuring out a glitch and NOT including others or NOT sharing the knowledge of how to perform the task while taking down boss mobs with (2) of your OWN toons and hoarding the loot would be an entirely different matter because then you are denying the masses of even an opportunity of taking down that boss with conventional methods or otherwise...
Glitching isn't playing the game, it's taking advantage of the game mechanics and rendering bosses completely inert. There is no strategy, past the "figure out how to break the boss" and it sincerely ruins the game.
I just can't believe you guys are ok with not competing justly for bosses that our server can easily handle. We don't KS, clans work together, our server has no justification to glitch. It just makes me /facepalm when I see the server culture switch to glitching over playing. Celtic Heroes to Celtic Cheaters. It's shocking.
Case and Point: if a boss resets while you are "fighting" it due to another player entering it's Melee range, then yer not really fighting it. Yer fighting the coding, Yer not playing the game.
Currently my clan is operating on a 2 strikes and yer out policy with glitching. A warning and a kick. We tackled Spearhorn today with 10 people all in Clan, and Frank helping a bit on his Druid and all we got were jeers in Shout of: "I thought you guys were against glitching". And lol we actually had to say: "we are fighting it straight up, see? Maybe you forgot.. This is what is looks like.."
To me, it's a joke not playing the game as intended, and I think past the unique "trick" of discovery, spreading this into a boss-glitching culture is beyond the pale. It ruins the game. Far beyond just what you and your friend's do for fun, it turns the community into a bunch of no-talent glitchers. And makes all that gear a sleazy joke of exploitation not accomplishment.
