Default Overbooning exploit

Was going to boon and thought how to do it well...
Rerolled an alt to train for boon and found interesting boon strategy/exploit:

Exploit is that you can still use items you haven't got the skill to equip if they are in your pouch [edit] or equipped

Idea is that after boon you want to keep boon alive as long as possible to train important skills as high as possible without ending boon.

Let's say I reroll into a caster, I can get to level 70 with 140 magic and defense only, and get magic skills high enough to start killing quick enough.

once I start reaching end of boon, what I need to do now is touch and delevel certain skills to streach boon. main skills for this are staves, petmanship, suiting and green magic (for other builds probably different ones).

What I mean is this:
* I train staves to 78, equip 78 staff and then untrain staves back to 0.
* Same with petmanship to 85, equip owl and back to 0
* blue magic to 89, equip manaburts then back to 0
* Green magic to 89, equip invigorates & healing pouch then back to 0
* Suiting to 88, equip 88 suit and back to 0 (this one is not such a good idea if I want to stay good for PvP - but I guess I can put that off to when boon is over)
* (maybe same with white for healing pouch... If I don't loose patience :-)

This way I can work up more DD magic skills, tunnel vision, mana vault and other hard to raise and important skills while boon is still on, and avoid having to use second grade equipment because of that.

This exploit can be prevented by not allowing a skill to be untrained if you have an item that requires it equipped.

Tbh it really limits you. If you delevel staves to 0, you're stuck with that stave forever. You can never remove it without raising your staves skill back up. But, like you said, it's also a really easy fix if Glitchless thinks it's an exploit, so I kind of agree.

I believe someone reported this before and I can't recall if glitchless said it or another person did but they said if they want they can do that because it will eventually make it useless. But they also didn't use an example like this.

Idea is just to stretch boon further by about a bill or so... allowing another 80+ skill to reach 90+ or something... I guess with more thought this can bu stretched further... in any case - seems like a legit exploit to me.

I said it before about using social skills boost... but I think this one is different and has higher exploit potential due to much lower cost (training the skills up and back down is done easily because most is below your level, but you use most of the exp saved aside on very high and difficult to level skills (e.g. mana vault or tunnel vision)

pretty sure that would be the dumbest, biggest waste of time in the world. but you can try it and let us know what happens.

If you read the descriptions, they clearly state "if this SKILL is low compared to your opponents suiting, you will do as little as half normal damage" Skill. Skill.

I suppose if you want to be a 'all show, no go' toon, then you can get everything up to 100 and put everything lvl 99/100 on. Although it won't help you a bit if you are capped since you'll be shooting off gems or swinging weapons with a level 1 skill against lvl 85 protection and suiting skills.

I suppose it's a bit of an exploit, but you definitely pay for it more than you benefit from it. All the 'exploitable' skills are base skills so they have the least amount of xp to gain.

has been reported, glitch said it aint an exploit, cause you have to level the skills again anyways.

also, if you are doing it for weapons/armor/pets etc etc. it will hurt you more then help as with weapons you would do full damage, with armor you wont "block" as much
