Hey everyone,

I wanted to let you know that we are definitely aware of the current bug with a certain PvP relic and it's unintended consequences. We are working to get a fix to this ASAP and will update you as I know more.

As a note, the current state of that relic is 100% not intended. That is the reason this post is being very generic as to what the relic is and what it does. I wanted to make sure we acknowledged it so that you guys knew we are working on it.

Due to the unintended effects of this issue, we will continue to remove posts about the relic in question. Thank you all for your understanding.

Thanks for the heads-up! Is using the relic in PvE or PvP considered a bannable offense or can we use it until it is fixed?

Thanks for the update.

Translation...

PVPers: Suck it up buttercup. Go LOS behind that wall with the Sorc/Sage that is doing a H2F while the OP Relic exploit is loose.

eric - can you get them to "Break" the Healing Relic next? I'd but one of them if they do. LOL

I'm not asking for much.... maybe some Cake too...

How about you simply remove the relics Eric? They're game breaking. Take the servers down, remove the exploited items and THEN fix the mess. This shouldn't take as long as you guys are taking.

Because the hundreds of thousands of casual subscribers don't care.

If they remove the relic I at least want my comms back, I bought it before I knew it was broken, in fact I learned about this bug this morning, if I shouldn't have bought it because it is broken I want my ranked AND regular coms back.

I doubt there are even 200k subs...but just because they're unaware of what a major exploit this is, doesn't mean it shouldn't be fixed immediately! Emergency patch type fix.

Fine, replace the item with a token. However...I doubt many were purchased without knowing what it did.

Hope you ban accounts all exploiters of this issue, or at least reset their Arenas ratings...

I disagree. I think everyone should use it until it's fixed. It's the only fair thing to do.

Asking people to not use it just disadvantages them against those who do.
