Default Just checking that this is not a bug..

Ok, I knew that you can't use the same resources for enchanting a long time ago, but apparently a while back someone taught me that if you did the following combination, the stone is actually made. Can Glitchless/Jeff or someone else confirm that this is not a bug? (I would hate to have used a bug to have leveled my enchanting to level 88 from level 80 or so...):

On top row use two silks for both negative and positive
On 2nd row use two threads.

I just want to make sure I'm not bug abusing in this case. It's just something that's been on my mind for a while now..

Thanks a lot.

You can use the same resources to make a stone, for example 2 identical silks, or identical threads. Threads will always give a 'null' stone though.
I do this all the time with silks to level my enchanting skill.

I know this, but I am wondering what happened that I once got that "you cannot use the same two resources for making an enchanting stone" message..

Just worked for me now, with 2 silks on top row, 2 threads on second. As long as you dont try for a second row of silk or thread, I think its ok.

Then again, it's late here, and I may be confused

This does appear to be a bug. There is no way to exploit this other than perhaps using it to make waste resources in order to level enchanting since the two same pieces cancel each other out. This will be changed in the next patch.

5 TC's to Destruction.

this has been around since the beginning of nod. and when using two 33% resources it doesnt always cancel out. the popular one is 2 silks which have a 33% chance of 3 different stats so the odds of cancelling out are not 100%.

I can see this patch for the 100% resources but not the 33% ones... oh well.

so now using silks wont work for raising enchanting level? thats just messed up so now the people who have been using this to get higher enchanting get to hold the business while all of the starting enchanters have to work their A$$es off to get the same level?

We believe these are working as intended.

wow Dest, WOW, this is just as bad as the thread made about escaping from clan battles, thanks to you something thats been freely discussed and mentioned ingame for idk how long.... since crafting got added in beta maybe.. is now a minor exploit and everyone thats benefited from it gets an edge up over every new enchanter. *golf clap*

everyone pat Dest on the back for getting, what is it level 88 enchanting? and 5 TCs.

Lol@jealous or otherwise hateful/spiteful comments.

EDIT:My enchanting level is now 78 (1 exp till 79), I untrained the points I got using an unfair method. =)

Fyi, I don't give a crap what other people may think. I had a goal to untrain the experience I got from level 79 if it really did turn out to be a bug from the beginning when I posted this, and seeing as how this is the case, I have fulfilled my goal. Peace.
