This method allows you at least:
- quest reward farming (desire element, prefix, etc);
- obtain a several quest items (each element);
- easy quest farming while at leveling. Pimpernel for example: just get to it, but don’t take the quest. Complete it with duplicated character. Now you can get a new Pimp whenever you want till 72/OP8 (or melee Zero leveling - a new LoveThumper every new level);
- infinite Torque/Seraph items - just be sure to buy it with duplicated character;
So, again. Is this a cheat or just “timesaver” exploit?
