Tips on How to NOT Get Banned While Hacking [HR][/HR] Excerpt from my thread. I thought I should make a separate post for this since it is an important issue and everyone seems to be paranoid about getting banned. If anyone has anything else to add, feel free to leave a comment and let me know. :) Note: I cannot guarantee that you will not be banned, as using hacks of any kind, at any time, and under any circumstances poses a risk of getting caught and banned. These tips can only help you reduce the chances of that happening. Avoid the use of hacks in Henir Challenge mode. Refrain from hacking in Challenge mode as you'll be banned eventually. This is because your fast clear time (usually 7-9 minutes with Dmg Hack or Auto-Kill) will be recorded on the Board for the entire Elsword population to see, including the GMs. Your character's name will also be announced like a megaphone upon clearing the dungeon. Henir NORMAL mode is much safer. Besides, Challenge mode and Normal mode will give you the SAME reward (60 "Piece of Time and Space"). Avoid the use of hacks in PVP. Refrain from hacking in PVP as many people have been getting banned from doing so. Avoid the use of hacks while in a party with anyone you don't completely trust. Even if they say they won't report you. All it takes is for one person to take a screenshot of you hacking, report it to Customer Support, and your account will be investigated. Customer Support in Elsword is insanely fast so don't think that reports against you will go unnoticed. Scan the map for GMs. If you didn't already know, a GM does not have to be in a dungeon with you to ban you. While you're outside, take a look around to see if there is a GM nearby. If so, find another place to go or change channels. Note: Just because there isn't a GM in the map, it doesn't mean you're 100% safe from getting banned. Hacking of any kind poses a risk of getting banned at any time. Don't use a hacker-obvious name. Seriously. If you call your character "iHackPr0lulz," or even "fghskjalsg," people will suspect you. Don't go around telling everyone that you hack. Self-explanatory. Avoid mailing/trading large amounts of ED between characters. These can be traced. You could be mistaken for a gold farmer and you may be temporarily trade-blocked. Worst case scenario: Your account is investigated due to suspicious item transfers and you are found to have been hacking. Stand within crowds while in the village map. People are less likely to see you, whatever you're doing. Since you are hacking, your character is probably completely naked to avoid your equipment's durability from decreasing. If you hide within a crowd of people, people won't see your undies and suspect anything. ;) Make your party private, especially when entering dungeons above your level. I don't know about you guys, but when I see a Lv 10 create a Henir party and suddenly disappear (meaning he started the dungeon), I instantly think it's a hacker. Try to get into the habit of doing this unless of course there's no one else in the village to see you. Sell small quantities of an item at a time. So you farmed 2000 Henir cubes, huh? That's the equivalent of running Henir 3 times a day on three characters for over a year. If you sell that many at a time, the first thing people will suspect is either a) You're a merchant, bought loads of them for cheap, and are selling for profit, or b) You're a hacker. Most likely they will think the latter. Remember, a lot of people are aware of what the latest hacks for Elsword can do. Avoid under-pricing your items by large amounts. Search up the item(s) you plan on selling on the Board. See how much other people are selling them for. If, for example, people are selling Henir cubes in the 1.1m~1.5m range, sell yours for 1m (try not to lower the lowest price on the board by more than 10%). If you start selling stacks of cubes for ~900k/ea, people will suspect that you're a hacker. Don't reveal your in-game name on hack forums, including GameKiller. Keep in mind that hundreds of people visit this site everyday. There are probably 30+ people viewing the Elsword section right now, any of whom can screw you over and report you. GMs and other Elsword moderators visit this site also. [HR][/HR] The best advice I can really give you is to use common sense. Don't do anything that will cause any suspicion. Blend in with the crowd. Play legit from time to time. Most importantly, DON'T HACK IN HENIR CHALLENGE MODE. [HR][/HR] "If common sense is so common, why are there so many people without it?"
