And by legit I mean, don't buy/sell NX, avoid hacked gear at all costs, avoid anything that's obviously duped, don't share account info even with people you know and trust completely, avoid 'glitched' maps and avoid/resist benefiting hackers in any way, and avoid taking advantage of glitches/etc (including the now-defunct glitched decent skills). I know one aspect of that, "avoid anything duped" is hard to avoid, but I've stayed my course and stuck with my principles. For instance, I've always dreamed of obtaining an ele staff 5/6, but duped ones being available for like 10k NX at some point (when MTS was still around) did not sway me to get one because it would ruin my sense of diligence and is just wrong because it benefits those whose ultimate agenda is obviously ruining the game, regardless of what their "intentions" are. So I've stuck with my second-rate but unduped ele wand 6, putting a ton of effort into it, spending a tiny fortune to make it as great as it could be without the bells and whistles of scrolling anything duped on it (think 100+ cubes and 50% weapon scrolls I am quite certain were not duped, 5/9 worked and a few pam's songs were involved). Anyone else out there like me?
I guess a more intricate question is whether it makes sense for me personally to stop being so righteous and start capitalizing on things like duped gear since it's become such a common part of the game, and start using that cliche of "everyone does it so why shouldn't I". I mean, Nexon has not done enough to stop this since things like duped and EE hacked gear are still all over the place. While duping is not easily possible anymore, things like item generation are still popping up. If nothing extensive to fix it has been done for this long and new problems keep arising, it seems like anyone who doesn't capitalize on it is some kind of "sucker" even if being that sucker means you are strongly against the sabotage of the game by less than stellar individuals. This is where I'm a bit torn.
edit: Also, the first poll choice should include "never bought/made glitched decent skills".
