I believe they had "some" ability to manipulate the database, otherwise how could you explain CR2? or the massive nerfing SOE poured into once valuable dungeon drops.

RE: The Agency
item stats weren't stored in the db; they were in gameobjects.pkb and the server process had a copy as well. the database would just say 'player has x item'; the packmaps would define what that meant.

but yeah, they could edit the db, as was seen with XP and info and CQ near the end. I think it was more just a) laziness or b) they didn't know how to deal with complications, like making the new server have 9 characters per, or determining how to crush 9 characters into 3, how to migrate all the chat names to new ones that had valid soechat addresses, blah etc.
