You really don't need to puchase any kind of equipment for leveling pourpouses. Just use whatever you get from drops or personal story rewards. I have leveled to 80 all 8 profesions and never purchased anything.

In Topic: Can I reset my account?

All of those things are possible except getting rid of extra bank slots you have purchased (don't know why you would want to do that) and achievemts.

Just empty your bank, burn your money, karma, everything and then delete all your characters. Deleting all your characters also allow you to choose a new home server for free.

more than 300K with Warrior GS 5 on some random ambient animal. (Don't see anywhere that ambien animals don't count) :P

In Topic: Jute/linen farm exploit and bans.

The issue had a "happy" end.

All the banned people (the ones not using bots of course) had their ban lifted by anet. They were sent an apology letter by anet. Initially, all the perma bans were turned into 72 hour bans but once contacting support depending on the GM in charge of your ticket you could get that revocked too. Only very few people had to wait 72 hours if the GM in charge of their ticket didn't want to lift it.

So, there was no exploit. Just a matter of an excesive loot drop that was easily solved by anet aparently without the need of a new build. Anet apologized, but the damage done might take time to heal for those who were banned and then unbanned. Lets hope nothing like this happens again as it really hurts the good image of anet.

The precedent was set the same as the snowflake bug last year and they were very slow to respond but banned anyway. And yes there were posts asking if it was ok to do this but left unanswered.

Yeah, i remember that. But it was clearly an exploit. I mean, A crafted item must always have less vendor value than the components. If you don't do it like this you have a money making machine. If i don't remember bad, the exploit was something like "Mithril + snowflake" -> "Item" that once recicled gave "Ectos + snowflake". Even without considering the TP, ectos have higher vendor price than mithril.

now was it a bannable offense? Nope had they done a bug sweep and actually spent time fixing things in the game instead of 2 week content it would have been picked up. Way to hard to tell. Is this spawning right?

Thats the problem. The infinite spawn was not a bug. It was intended. It doesn't happen only in that precise point but on several places in the iron marches. It clearly represents the constant siege the charr are imposing over the human camps. The result is, once you are on one of those places you always have a charr going after you. And if you kill it a new one spawns and goes after you. And it keeps being like that until you leave that part of the map. The flaw on anet's design was that these charr should not drop any loot to avoid precisely this problem. Ussually people always avoided these charr but now that linen is expensive people just camped on the respawn point to kill them. And as the respawn is instant there you have your farm. So it was not a bug. It was working as expected, but nobody thought about the consequences of Bolts of Damask requiring linen.
