I really do not think report 1564 should be allowed to advance forward.... If someone has already coded into their system to track afflictions and the curing of those afflictions then they have the know how to create a simple trigger and module that tracks if a person is undead or living, and which cures to watch for in order to remove an affliction from their tracking system.
Someone powerful says, "We're going to have to delete you."
The thing is, not even LOOK PERSON is reliable anymore because of an iron coin artifact that lets you show up as any race/status as you want. So it's entirely possible that someone, using a class that wouldn't blatantly give them away, might use Xiuhcoatl's method of spamming herbs and slices and mask what is actually curing them by pretending to be the opposite of what they really are.Things like that are why there either needs to be a config or some hard-coded server-side prevention for consuming the wrong type of curatives.
While artifacts aren't always a valid argument, this is a game breaking, in the current incarnation of combat, tactic. If you cannot track cures, you cannot pull off kills. I've coded around it, and it's a simple enough toggle, but if I don't know if I'm fighting undead or living, it creates a whole new set of issues. Not knowing which set of cures is 'accurate' just creates more problems.
Overall, I expect this will be patched rather soon as I think the IGNOREOFFBALCURES was an attempt to fix this very thing but that they misunderstood what the problem was.
