I think most of us know you're considering making level ups untradable because of the PQ glitch right?

If you forum people don't know, the glitch is basically low levels can join any PQ and get the "bum" exp. 

My suggestion is to change the EXP you get for party quests, so that if a player does not kill any monsters they do not get any experience. As of right now you get a little bit of exp no matter what....and thats how these low levels are leveling. If you just change it to 0 of they kill no monsters the problem is basically solved? This might be a little work reprogramming all the party quests but perhaps it would be easier than fixing the glitch? And seriously if you make giftboxes untradable it's going to really hurt the community. :( Thanks for listening...

I approve of this very much. It does get irritating to see people getting exp that you worked so hard on, killing everything in your path while someone just sits it out. :I

+1 also.

 

Who joins PQ for the EXP if they're not the ones killing? Generally, nobody. It's just for farming feathers.

You sir are a genius,  may i add to also let the killer receive the tag in the kill counter so low levels cant get the first hit in,  then a stronger character kills seeing as the low lv will mostlikely not beable to hit hard enough to do the final kill.

+1 to OP's idea, however I disagree with this. There have been a couple situations where even I've had to tag and kill with another character and not one that was a newbie, mind you. If for some reason OP's idea was implemented and low levels could still do PQs intended for higher levels, just change the level minimum to whatever it is when they can no longer revive for free. They would likely die so often that it'd just be plain inconvenient to try and farm gbs this way.

Since when is this 'bug' in effect? XD

I still have the normal level requirements for my PQs.... :/

You have to glitch it obviously it wont just happen. It's probably been in effect for a long time but the abusers lately just got more sloppy about it as word spread to more people. I know people as far back as a few weeks reporting it.

Best solution I've seen thus far.

GMs and players should take a look at this thread for the general opinion on untradable giftboxes: http://ggftw.com/forum/trickster-online-announcements/119497-update-level-up-box.html

This sounds like a more reasonable idea. If TO is unable to fix the glitch, or unable to ban these abusers, then this would probably be an easier alternative.
