Regional FlagAre Black Lion Key runs an exploit?Source

I’ve found the fastest way to get a Black Lion Key is to create a new Human Warrior and do the commoner story mission. You can finish the level 10 mission at a lower level by letting the NPCs do a lot of killing for you.

Is it an exploit to do this repeatedly to collect Black Lion Keys? I don’t want to be banned, and I don’t know if you would consider this “too good to be true” or not, since it takes at least thirty minutes of effort, but generates a hard to find item.

As noted earlier, this is not an exploit.

However, I wanted to add that things can change, and the devs may make adjustments to the rewards if they feel that would be a good thing to do. But at the present time, they do not consider these runs exploitative.

I will check into this and see if there’s any info to share in relation to this question.

Making new characters for Black Lion Keys is NOT an exploit. Have fun all!

Are you exploiting when you farm, that is, play the same area over and over again? Nope, not unless you’re using a macro or a bot to do it while you sleep. What I was told was that the devs felt that the time spent was acceptable in relation to the rewards. John later confirmed that it wasn’t an exploit, so I believe the question is covered now.

In addition, my comment about change was general in nature, simply a way to say that, as we’re all probably aware, things can change in a game over time. I didn’t mean you to be concerned, pulse, with taking away attained rewards or any sort of loss.
