Did Portobello Event Glitch Allow Beholder Clickfest?

*** UPDATE *** This rumor created quite some noise and Community Moderator kreatyve delivered a statement in this post.

Closing this up as flame bait. Just to be 100% clear – there was NOT an exploit on PS4 concerning the Beholder mount. There was no “hotfix” to fix one. The devs are not able to hotfix the consoles – every patch requires approval from Microsoft or Sony, respectively, and downtime. I can assure you 100% that there WAS NOT an exploit.kreatyve

It’s not known whether this is indeed semi-official or a personal opinion.


The Beholder Personal Tank from the running Portobello campaign on consoles is a pretty illustrious item. It’s one of very few a legendary items that can be farmed, but the drop chances drive players crazy. After completing the Artificer’s Workshop you can’t even always interact with the Beholder to try your luck. All in all only very few players have been and will be able to attain one.

Click, click, click

This makes an alleged discovery of popular Youtuber Garlaanx as much more annoying. Apparently some players didn’t need to go through the full grind thanks to an exploit.

As often a very simple issue might have caused this. The video suggests the eligibility of clicking the Beholder was refreshed whenever a player entered the map and not whenever all tasks within the map were finished. Hence players that continuously dropped in and out of the map could click the Beholder every time. This would also explain a few rumors surrounding a possible Beholder exploit when the event ran on PC.

The exploit has reportedly since been hotfixed. So in the last week of the event everyone is back trying their luck the intended way. In case you farmed your Beholder legitimately and think to sell it, you shouldn’t be too concerned though. It doesn’t look like the market will be flooded with the mount. After all the drop chance even getting more clicks in per hour is pretty low. So even if this actually was possible the amount of exploited Beholders shouldn’t be too high.

That does mean however that those that used the glitch would also majorly profit from it and would be able to make a fortune selling mounts over time.

    Joshi, don’t be a dumb fuck and post fake exploits. This shit didn’t exist and the youtube video shows no proof.

      Or the angry comment by an anonymous might indicate there could be truth to it? But you’re right that for something that can’t be tested any longer the article sounded a bit too definite. It’s slightly rephrased now.

        The fact that you PM’d me right after i said this only furthers my point. Fact check. The video is just a hypothetical scenario on how a glitch might have worked. No concrete evidence, meanwhile no one got banned as there was no glitch, and you didn’t hear it from me directly. When do i keep u in the dark joshi?

          Fair point, although I didn’t know or couldn’t remember who was posting under “No name” here. Again: We acknowledge it can’t be proven, but it’s still interesting and intriguing enough to post. Plus no accusations were thrown from us as that’s not what we do without proof.

            This glitch did exist.
            Hotfixes are put out on consoles quite often (the ability to do so is one of the things which made MMO-type games console-ready)

            If you want to be taken seriously as a journalist, don’t give in so quickly to rants. There are people who will attempt to force their opinion on you our sway your writing to their agenda. Ignore them. Do your research, write your article, and don’t apologize.

            This glitch DID exist on console, I did it myself about thirty times in a row before getting bored and quitting.

    Seems awfully strange for a certain “no name” individual to get so excited and curse out the site admin (shows level of int) about a post of something that according to them doesn’t exist…. Talk about being rather suspicious, and maybe nobody has been banned yet because the investigation is ongoing…..That being said it seems that you have might have a vested interest in keeping something quiet but instead have brought more focus to it. Sometimes it’s smarter to keep ones mouth shut.

    And please for the love of this game Joshi do not give into pressure from “individuals” lol that want things kept quite, we all know what happened. Some people who play on consoles have been exploiting things for a long time and controlling the economy, the idea of these “individuals” continue to get a free pass is sickening and discusting and have driven many fine people who legitimately play away due to the lack of punishment, 3rd party ad purchase instant permaban, I thought botting and exploiting carried the same punishment, but maybe all that matters is who you know on the inside….or who is or was in your guild.

    So the devs can’t hotfix a console much like they did fix the sahha ball glitch on Xbox One in a few hours. Fucking liars.

    Ikr and they just shadow ban anyone who says different! Community moderators are totally full of shit and lap dogs of cryptic, and they cover everything up to try and make you think your gaming experience is fair and not scare off the noobs who have yet to break out the wallet… A couple of ppl got very rich with this one and it still blows my mind that they continue to release glitched and broken content on the consoles after they have identified and fixed it on PC? And PC players on the consoles continue to get even richer…..because they know it’s coming beforehand. The level of incompetence at this developer of is truly astonishing!
