    What is the exploit please @ZOS_GinaBruno ?

    Due to the nature of the exploit, we aren't able to divulge any details. That said, you can rest assured that we will be fixing it, and any accounts found to be abusing it will be taken care of.

    I hope those who get the No death / speed of Vhf won't get banned ... Cause it's not our fault if we get them once Vhf completed . And i won't accept to get banned simply because i have finished a dungeon that i have paid for.

    btw, you can't say use the nature of the exploit , but can you say us if this is not about the Vhf achievement ?

    Hey, is the no death guaranteed in a run?

    yep , i get it ith 9 dead.

    my friend get it with 1 dead.

    my guild mate get it with something like 30+ dead .

    I hope this will get fixed cause i didn't paid 1500 crown for finish the dlc at 100% 2 day later simply because there is a bug.

    While you are here, in the patch notes it is said:
    Banished Cells I and II
    High Kinlord Rilis and his summoned creatures will once again leave the platform to engage player characters.

    Yesterday BC2 was a pledge and daedroth are still stuck on the platform :/

    Can confirm. Just a mosh pit of daedroth on the platform.

    People have been using Invis pots to speed run it.....So that's a thing I personally think should not be happening.

    Why? Invis pots are part of the game.

    IDK because it's a Dungeon and I just have a *thing* about skippable mobs in dungeons - if it's allowed, it's allowed, but still.

    I got out of hospital about 5 hrs ago from an operation on my neck, got home knowing there was an update which took ages no fault of eso just slow my end, got in the game & not long after the 10 minute siren went off :). I knew it must be something like an exploit, but atleast its not like eve-online when they found a large exploit the servers were instantly shut down with no warning. So atleast you got a warning.:)

    Barbed wire has so many uses. Please bear in mind I have writing Dyslexia & I use Grammarly to help me type.

    Depends on the nature of the exploit and what is gained. If this is a gold related exploit, shouldve just shut the servers off without a warning.
    People can send the gold in mails to themselves or friends etc if there is a warning.

    I wonder what exploit could get Zeni off its butts to jump and fix? I mean we have gone several weeks even months with certain exploits before Zeni would acknowledge them, and we have had some bad exploits in the past so what makes this one so special that Zeni jumps to fix it?

    Generally if the exploit can ruin the in-game economy, they're faster about fixing it since it has a wide impact, like with the survey banker exploit. So I'm thinking it's along those lines, but it'd still be nice to get confirmation if the exploit is something that'd have to be done maliciously/intentionally.

    This.

    I can't say this is *EXACTLY* what the issue is, but I'll give you a little insight on what I've experienced in the last 12 hours...

    I logged-off around 9:30 PM EST last night.

    I checked Discord on my phone around 7 AM EST while taking my puppy out and had our 2nd In Command messaging me saying I was demoting people, kicking people, Guild Bank, etc. They knew it wasn't me, and that my account had been compromised.

    I logged in and checked, sure enough...my account (Tens of millions of Gold and tens of thousands of Gold Materials, Psijic Recipes, Rare Motifs, etc. Literally...a Jackpot Account.) had been hijacked.

    I never got an "unknown IP" email. I only play in 2 locations. Neither are accessible during the hours which this 'attack' took place. Unless you like armed security at one location or a nasty Doberman in your face at another...lol.

    I lost 3.5 years worth of stuff, not to mention 2 of my Personal Guild Banks! :(

    I hope this is all related, and I hope they roll-back all the changes that were made during this time.

    *IF* this isn't related...well...it's been fun playing with you all!

    Oh Holy. :( I really hope they fix it!

    Are the recent visits from the prophet and hooded figure an exploit? Just for the record I did not invite their attention. Although it did seem to upset Lyris..

    Yeah I wouldn't know what to do if they don't roll that crap back that's an insane exploit if that day 1 launch bug came back when random people were logging into other people's accounts not unpurpose but whenever they tried to sign into there's really hope they fix this if this is also a 2nd case.

    I'll take the Doberman if you don't need him any more ;) But if this is (related to) the exploit, the prime-time-downtime is all but perfectly okay.

    I remember getting a few minutes warning on Eve Online. And they usually fixed things in <30min rather than several hours...

    I remember that. I would have a heart attack and I don't even have all that much stuff (gave loads away when I went on a break) - like a couple million only and some valuable recipes/motifs - so I can imagine! I would have a cry! I hope you have all your own gear still! That's the WORST!

    :( Sad that it takes players to narrow down what is going on rather than ZOS just giving us a decent update - especially if our accounts might be comprimised - SMH.. people seem to congratulating ZOS on 'cute memes' and taking the servers down and not really expecting much more.. Honest players are kept in the dark - whilst the exploiters will continue to collude and share their little tricks.

    Anyway ZOS - we will find out anyway, just through the grapevine and not through a couple of lines from you.. wierd but watev's.

    Well I just changed my PW just incase I would probably suggest anyone else to too
