Wow that dupe fix, I wonder how much currency was made using that.


None. You could only duplicate items that can be used with Skin Transfer. And you also needed a mirror to do it which is not exactly common.

All it really did was double the effectiveness of a mirror. Also you would have needed to skin transfer the item back inside another one every time before you log out, otherwise the dupe detector will destroy it.
