You're just being bored to death instead of playing online with friends.
This is a good post but one thing I'll say which makes more or less what Aurra said. Those people who did this exploit are not
true level 200s.
They didn't take the time, energy, or patience to work on their character through the rigers of the game and just literally exploited another way to get what they wanted with less work.
The rule of thumb of it not being cheating in reference to this thread could be said that even tho they are not cheating as you say, they are
however cheating themselves....
