Soooo if this is the second issue involving potential duping & specific ??? driven events/npc's - and Einherjar was the start, perhaps every single special interaction point should each be suspended & checked for similar abuses. I'd focus on everything end game current such as the other npc armor upgrade vendors in port jeuno & reisen myself. Maybe the Trial of Magians as well because of the delivery box. I'm not as knowledgeble as I'm still reorienting after a decade away.

But - its best to get them all done now voluntarily before we face the other inevitable result - pissed off banned people ruining it for everyone else left....

Every single npc in the entire game has potential to be exploited via packets...

The funny thing is this stuff mostly aff3ects the people who piled onto Asura. Far as I can tell no medal duping occured on shiva (Note that asura had many stacks of medals sell after the duping began. Shiva has only had a couple of stacks sell in the entirety of their existence, and none were recent)

If you don't want this sort of thing contaminating your experience, you might want to consider a server transfer :-p

Yeah, the only long term solution here is a netcode fix, who knows if they can even do that though. If packets aren't encrypted, they should be (but that might affect network performance significantly...)

Asuran dupers were bringing them to every server, that's what got them caught.

I don't think this is possible for ffxi. You sent a packet to receive a result.

despite all the tools at your disposal making ***look super easy, they actually are encrypted using blowfish, windower and ashita just hook prior to encryption on outgoing and after decryption on incoming so you get clean data to play with

So why do they bother to encrypt if you can get inb4 and after?

It's an attempt at security, like everything else. Same reason games have CD keys when even denuvo's been cracked.

encryption is to protect against a man in the middle, so only you and SE's server can read the contents, and you can't be impersonated.

Locks are only to keep honest people out.

If there was nothing, everyone could just download cheat engine and *** the whole thing up like a facebook game.
