I don't dupe. I don't really encourage it either, it just seems lazy to me. For me it just feels more rewarding to put in the necessary time and effort to farm the materials I need to get what I want and it really takes away one of the challenging and fun elements of the game to take shortcuts.

But to each their own I'm not big on PvP so my opinion is biased.

Haha probably. I've only had two characters so far. A magician that I completely wrecked and abandoned and my barb which is my shining achievement. I'm thinking about starting a new spellcaster soon so I may end up taking some shortcuts when that time comes.

Dupings fine because farming as many have said is boring!

but I do hate it when lv 40s and such have the best gear possible all ready and are invading low levels for easy kills.

that is usually because they already beat the game once and are on NG, so technically they could have farmed for their stuff, but ya i agree. greifers are annoying, though i love beating them aha.

there is no fun left in the game itself when you have played through it countless times

no tricks / surprises it is boring

making a character with all spells / souls / wpns in under 1 hour leaves you time to pvp more

you say fun of the game : i say boring pve

only time PVE was honestly fun was the 1st time around maybe even the 2nd

after you do it 80+ you just dont really care

well ive spent probably a few hundred hours into PvE, and i still love it more then PvP. but i like the act of making a build, starting out shitty and seeing him get better. even when im making a PvE character, i dont mind duping. farming just plain sucks. i farmed enough going for Plat and the countless other times i farmed before i knew how to dupe. at this point, i just like seeing how good a build is with max weapons. its not the challenge of PvE i like (which on NG/+ or with +5 weapons early on its more like a lack thereof) its the coop i like. im ALWAYS playing with a blue, either someone i know, or some random guy i summoned. i just like playing with someone and going through the game

I'm opposed to duping, if only on the argument that it is a glitch. Granted, not nearly as gamebreaking as, say, RFS, but still a glitch nonetheless.

However...

I don't really blame the people that do it, for the reasons mentioned. At some point, spending hours and hours of time farming in order to build a new PvP character just stops being productive.
