This should be considered an exploit, nothing less.
To the first commenters: yes, they should totally change every aspect of this 16 year old game to cater to every minority opinion. Doesn't matter if that would break the game if any mob could just teleport past any obstacle some AI algorithm would evaluate as "too cumbersome".Instead of actually congratulating the player (who is btw. the most infamous soloing Hunter of WoW Classic and runs an average of 99 parses in Naxx, so a true master of his class), this feat has to be poopoo'd and the player put down.
'member the good old days when using exploits used to get you a vacation. Now we celebrate them.This is just an example of how lazy Blizzard have become. Don't look at exploits, let bots take over the economy, just let the 'players' do whatever it wants as long as we get our money.
Just say gratz and move on people, no need to make some ridiculous comparisons with real life stuff
Mob pathing is not an 'exploit'. This isn't like someone disappearing or going under the map and reappearing elsewhere or something truly an exploit. And of course Blizzard should go after bots. Regardless, real players doing in-game mechanics should be able to do something on this level with skill and patience. All the salt over someone doing an in-game feat using the in-game mechanics available in classic is unnecessary. A mix of jealousy at his skill and patience or annoyance at how classic works or both perhaps?
This is the reason why aoe farming is being nerfed in tbc,and will never cease to exist until the mobs wont be smarter.Even the bosses pathing sucks.
In other news, another player has used bugs to exploit another raid boss in a length of time shorter than someone else has done before.
People talking about giving suggestion and not changing entire game... Well every boss have their area right ? How this hard to limit bosses standing in that area and when going out is resetting ? Basically, if you have engaged with "something" you dont want to be, and if you are running away.. That should reset... Oh no! We love corpse running or exploiting such as this... Or wait this is called Clever use of game mechanics...
Huh weird. I used to solo the bosses for mounts with my warlock way back, I remember it taking about as long. Never did get the damn mounts.
