Blizzard Hotfixes Diablo III Invulnerability Exploit

By
Posted on July 24, 2012 AT 02:24am

Blizzard has quickly stamped out the invulnerability exploit that surfaced yesterday for the Wizard class in Diablo III, so if you decided not to play yesterday then you’ve already missed all the fun.

“We are currently rolling out a hotfix for a recent bug regarding invulnerable Wizards,” the developer said on the Battle.net forums. “We will continue to carefully monitor this issue and welcome anyone with information about bugs or hacks to submit a detailed report to our Hacks Team by emailing hacks@blizzard.com, or by completing the Hacks Report web form.”

The exploit allowed the Wizard class to become invulnerable to any damage, meaning that a player could run through Inferno difficulty without any fear of death, collecting as much rare loot as they pleased. In a real-money game economy this is very bad. Luckily the developers reacted fast and has removed the exploit, and we have to commend them for that.

Did you take advantage of the exploit?
