Hey all, there's been some talk going on about 'shard farming' and we've all gotten several PMs on the matter. Here's what's up:
1) The simple act of legitimately farming shards is not considered an issue. Kiting mobs on its own is not considered abusive.
2) Abusing geometry that causes NPCs to not fight back is an issue and is not permitted.
3) All claims suggesting GMs have issued suspensions for farming shards, but not abusing unintended mechanics, have been investigated. All such claims are unfounded.
Please understand that the forums are not a place to speak about suspensions, either on your own account or on a friend's. Any concerns about your suspension should be directed to http://help.funcom.com/, our customer support portal.
