I've seen a ranger go from low 40's to 50 within a week or so.

Keep in mind that item recharging was disabled on the Red server for these exact reasons.

They are quad kiting specters in OOT on garg island using Red Wood Wands.
https://wiki.project1999.com/Red_Wood_Wand

I mysteriously noticed two very high level merchants nearby were cleared of their inventory and sure enough, someone from Seal team was on garg island quadding spectres.

All you really need is about 6 or so of these wands.
Each wand casts an INSTANT 76 dmg aoe from an inventory slot with 5 charges.
5 * 5 * 76 = 1900 damage which is plenty to take out a spec.

Run to the nearby merchant to recharge them all for 30-36p and you have plenty of time to run back and stand around until respawns.

Specs drop scythes that sell for 12.5p each along with random gems and research materials which can help cover the cost if not turn a profit with some luck.

Yes it's classic, yes it's cheesy, I honestly don't think anything is going to change, and given the recent posts about this guild, I'm not surprised in the least.
Lmao they didnt nerfed this here?

Hey guys lets nerf bone chips so people can't help themselves get to level 10, but abusing clickies to quad PL yourself on melees from 35-50 is totally ok.

Classic server btw

I've heard of some shitty behavior from that guild, but this....this...

Plenty of room on red, I hear.

There was a bug on blue with these wands having over 200+ charges. I wouldn't be surprise they are going around now on Green/Teal. I saw a monk level from 10-60 in 1 week.

Some items in real classic could be only be recharged with 1 use regardless of ow many uses it normally has. I wouldn't doubt this was one of them.

I know when they nerfed pummice stones my SK on rallos was trying to find a way to get more use out of the golem metal wands but they would recharge at 1 use instead of 5.

This isn't an exploit, it's a clever use of classic game mechanics.

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.
