    And what would Blizzard gain from explaining to the playerbase about duping? Except risking people would try and reproduce these glitches to create their own dupe-methods? There is a reason why these methods arent made public by groups before those glitches have been fixed.

    But sure, you believe what you want to lol, Im just presenting you with reality.

    Duping was absolutely happening it's what caused the bottom to fall out of the shadowmourne items market especially the mount.

    Is Duping still a thing or fixed?

    Pretty sure it was fixed, haven't seen anything on it for years now. But then again, I'm not keeping up with such things as much as I used to...

Clearly then these dupes were the best kept secret in the world and world governments envy these dupers for their secrecy.
    I was duplicating orbs and mounts for about 4ish months during early-to-mid MoP, then I sold most of that gold.

    It was certainly real, I didn't find out about it from this website though.

    Dont bother trying to speak with RokPanda, its a dead end trying to explain duping is possible and has been done to him.

    If it werent thanks to the internet I bet you he would claim that female breasts was also a myth, lol!

    And people can be delusional and ignorant on the forums, even when obvious evidence is put infront of them

    Still waiting for evidence of duping. Not one of the countless people that are supposedly in on this dupe have explained how it worked even after it's been fixed for years now? Yeah right.

    Where's the evidence? Oh it doesn't exist. You've got people claiming that a dupe existed or that they've done it, but there's ZERO EVIDENCE. I am completely and totally open to accepting that duping happened IF someone can prove that it did. As of yet that hasn't happened. At this point we're in ghost and psychic medium territory "Ya my Aunt Betty could read palms and was haunted and she duped mounts in WoW." What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

    This should be the easiest thing in the universe for you two since you think you have evidence of duping. Prove to me that it happened and I'll believe you. Easy.

    There's a plenthora of evidence on sites like OC and how it was done and i personally knew two of the methods from the Elite section involving dungeon phasing and double redeeming. That you're too stubborn to look up information on exploits from 7 years ago and how they tanked prices on TCG items down to 5 digit numbers is your fault, stay ignorant and cry about evidence when you're too dumb to even connect the dots.

    The onyx panther required 18*4k gold in just vendor materials (i.e you can't farm the mats), I was selling onyx panthers themselves at as low as 10k gold at one point.

    I don't care if you don't believe me, but there's a ton of resources out there you can read to learn that, duplicating items was actually quite commonplace during mop, i'm sorry that I didn't record my criminal acts for your education though.

    If you played back in Cata one look into the auction house was proof of duping. You could only buy epic gems after beating bosses. AH had an endless supply of red epic gems but very few orange. Not only were there not enough raiders on the realm to justify the sheer amount of red gems, also red and orange should have been about the same amount because you got about the same amount of currency from bosses.

    Living embers etc were also duped to high heaven, meaning there were much more than raiders existed.

    A widely held belief =/= proof.

    So you don't have any proof then? There are plenty of threads discussing whether duping was going on but no actual concrete evidence that any duping actually occurred other than tricking a GM into a one-off duplicate that couldn't be done in large amounts like people are claiming happened. Like I said, I'm open to changing my view with evidence, you're interested in keeping your belief of duping with no evidence. Should you find evidence you're more than welcome to show me.

    That's not proof of duping. That's a weird market trend. It happened in WLK, Cata, and MoP, that would require Blizzard to have not fixed that particular dupe for more than half a decade. Huge incompetence if that happened.

    Like I said gents, if you have any proof that duping actually happened I'm totally open to re-evaluating my position on the subject. Personal beliefs and speculation aren't evidence. I'm quite open minded on this one, but not without evidence. If duping happened there is zero reason why a decade later after it's been fixed for nearly as long nobody has any evidence to show that it happened.

    I played through the duping (I didn't do any). It was obvious though. Items that cost a fortune (like 500-700k) dropped to 40k rapidly.

    Also- check how many TCG cards were actually made vs. how many of the item exists in game. There is your proof right there. They were duplicating them somehow or the card numbers would match the item numbers. There would actually be less items in games than cards that existed because some cards wouldn't get redeemed (accidently destroyed, lost or damaged).

    Numbers don't lie......

    Again, weird market trends =/= proof of duping.

    If you have some numbers you could always link them.

    Lol at all the people that are denying duping existed. There have been multiple ways to duplicate items throughout WoW's history.

    The Jeweled Onyx Panther duping incident saw many of the mounts disappear from inventories of people who bought them, myself included.

    Look up what evidence actually is. Eyewitness accounts are evidence. If everyone else's story matches and contradicts yours, yours is probably wrong. Especially since you have just as much chance of knowing as everyone else.

    Saying there's zero evidence is only evidence you have no idea what evidence actually is.

    It's kinda funny, but also kind of sad, that I've been playing so long that I remember The Great Duping.. And that there are now players that, for some reason, doubt it's existence in history. Like Blizzard is infallible towards something like that.

    Every expansion has some kind of 'dupe' in it. Lately it's been repeatable, exploitable AP missions.

    The Spectral Tiger mount was absolutely 100% duped. The Shadowmourne items were 100% duped as well. Maybe OP's wasn't, but the event happened, just like the old 'gnomes falling from the sky spelling words' events happened.
    I played a rogue in a place. I play in another place now. You've probably seen me around.
