More Neverwinter client side exploits discovered - Stealth and (possibly) Divinity.
I would like to say thank you to all of those sending me all sorts of bugs and exploits. You are amazing! I am sorry if I did not personally reply to you, but getting a few dozen e-mails a day is a lot of reading. I promise that I WILL eventually reply to every serious one I receive.
Now lets move on.
A lot of you sent me reports that the Devoted Cleric's Divinity and Trickster Rogues Stealth are also client side, however no one sent me any video links, and things like that are hard to prove in a screenshot.
So I did some looking into this yesterday before today's maintenance.
I can confirm 100% that TR Stealth is client side. I was unable to reproduce the "always stealthed" exploit that people reported, however I managed to find one that almost instantly refilled my stealth. I then proceeded to do some boss farming, and the TR does not disappoint. The Spider Queen stood no chance against me... As she plummeted to her doom (lol sorry, couldn't help myself on that one, plus being able to get to the final boss in about a minute is also a big boon).
The real benefit to this would be in PvP, however I did not wish to tempt fate by being reported there.
As for the DC's Divinity - I don't actually have a DC anymore. Cryptic managed to ban my account with that toon on there. No big deal, I only have four more untouched accounts that I used to mule after exploiting quest sharing to get them all to 60.
But if Stealth is client side, Divinity most likely is as well. Caligula sent me many time stamped screenshots showing him literally spamming powers in Divinity mode over and over. If someone wants to look further into this, grab yourself a copy of Cheat Engine (64) and go for it.
I am also getting reports that skill cooldowns are client side, but was unable to confirm it before the servers went down.
As always - Have anymore bugs or exploits to share? Please e-mail them to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Edit: Would anyone be interested in seeing the hate e-mail I receive? Some of it is pretty damn hilarious. Most of these people rage hard because I gave out an exploit they used and they don't want it patched.
