BW maybe take some integrity in your product? No other mmo company would tolerate blatant exploiting
Rampant exploiting has been going on in PvE content since release and BW does little and less about it. It reminds me very much of my time in the Lord of the Rings Online. There were many, many exploits in raid content that became "normalized strat" because Turbine never cared to suspend for these infractions and / or fix the loop hole.

You know what the saddest part is? Go watch some videos of NiM EC and you will see exploits in the hardest fights in the game; and these tactics make certain parts of the fight absolutely trivial. It's a disgrace.

I wouldn't advocate bans, but BioWare really needs to close these loop holes.

Meh, I've probably chucked that fool off the ledge hundreds of times at this point and I think its hilarious (and fast) watching him kill himself, so I approve.

Eh, exploits are eventually closed, albeit not quickly.

Like the Foreman Crusher safe zone or the Rainbow Bridge to Kephess. Some other exploits that escape my memory were also patched.

Strangely, last night we actually KILLED Malgus. Straight up he was dead at my feet.
He initiated the 1v1 against me before he went invul and our dps was god enough that we got him to about 5-6%
when he went 1v1 against me. At that point I was able to drop him the remaining 5% and he just died right there.

Everyone in the group was kind of stunned ...

Yeah, this is kind of interesting. Malgus goes into the last phase of the fight when he crosses the 10% health threshold. But when "Filling X's Head WIth Doubt" comes up it triggers a solo portion of the fight and the invulnerability won't kick in until Doubt is finished. If you have a good group they can burn the last bit of health during this phase and he'll drop dead.

Edit: Incidentally, I prefer finishing FE this way. There have been too many times during the last phase where he's shooting lightning at the group who has run to the faaaaaaaaaar side of the map. It's a little difficult to knock him over the edge if he stays on the stairs and won't move. :/

Yeah it's defo a glitch when u kill him but I've found it's when you shove him over the edge and he doesn't actually go over. Then suddenly you can take his health down to the bottom. This fight really needs to be fixed because it really ruins the story. It's also so damn anti-climactic. It doesn't end like 'wow we killed Malgus' or have a spectacular ending like the foundry, it's more 'where did Malgus go?'
