It is not in my nature to spread rumour or to have this blog be a hub for those who want to hack or exploit Diablo 3. Nevertheless there are a series of problems at this moment in time that the average user may not have heard of but should be made aware of.
Identifying Unidentified Items
Beware anyone selling unidentified items. Buy only from those you trust or skip until you hear this issue has been resolved. Unidentified items are rolled at the time they drop and are concealed until you identify them. As we saw in our recent post looking at magic find, there are tiers of items that you can find. With a very simple chat line trick you can see the item code for an unidentified item. Users have since worked out what parts of this code mean what. You can see the number of affixes an item has and even what affixes they are.
There has been a sighting of 5+ of the same (identical stats) revenant bow on the US RMAH. This shouldn’t cause anyone immediate short term harm but, long term, if Blizzard don’t get a fix on this out swiftly, it could lead to some problems in the economy
Buying Auctions for Bid Price
With hex manipulation some users have worked out how to buy your items for bid price immediately. Bid price is the lower price that players ‘bid’ above and that won’t be taken until the auction expires. Make sure you keep your bid price as close to your buyout as possible to prevent these characters from getting a bargain off you.
Here’s hoping Blizzard fixes these issues quickly (they have a huge incentive to do so) and I hope none of you have fallen foul of any of these in any way. Personally, as much as I’m a huge fan of the game and as much as I enjoyed every moment on the path to defeating Diablo in Inferno, it’s really disheartening to see these Diablo 3 exploits pop up.
