We have confirmed an issue where players may obtain large amount of skill points by casting enhancing or healing magic to the party member. The issue is currently being addressed.

Also we would like to remind that repeating this method intentionally is considered as fraudulent behavior. With players who have abused this method, an additional investigation shall be made and their account may receive penalty including account suspension in case we determine it to be malignant. The investigation is expected to take a while until the completion. For those of you who have happened to abuse this method without knowing it to be fraudulent, please report yourself through GM Call. By reporting yourself in, the amount of skill point and skill rank you have gained will be corrected by GM and the penalty to your account will be exempted.

For details on account penalty and prohibited activities, please refer to the following pages.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Seriously man, the jig is up. They totally rushed this game out the door and don't have enough content in the game if they're banning people for making too much progress.

My understanding of this is while in a party, doing a levequest, and under the affect of Guardian Favor, if you aggro a mob and spam the AOE version of your heal instead of trying to defeat the mob, you can gain an absurd amount of skill points over time. The exploit is people are using this method to gain skill points instead of healing as needed to keep your party alive in order to down the mob.

Obviously this is not intended, but a side effect of having a "skill-up" based exp system. Which as I stated in my impression of the game; I thought "skill-up" based progression sounded great on paper but was a flawed (and now what seems broken) mechanic in reality for this type of game. I saw this sort of thing coming.

I don't know how they are going to fix/nerf this without having to get rid of skill gains from healing/buffing. Doing so would kind of break the classes for those playing them as support legitimately.
