Diablo 3’s invulnerable wizard exploit hotfixed, may have existed since launch


That glitch that allowed Diablo 3 wizards to become invulnerable? Blizzard have hotfixed it, rolling out a patch across all servers to make it so poking the magical bastards makes them bleed like any other class. A YouTube video has now surfaced showing the exploit being used as far back as one month ago, with some reports claiming the the invulnerability trick has been known, by some, about since launch. That’s alarming if true, as in the hands of botters this exploit is a bit of a golden, invincible, loot-poopin’ goose.

“We are currently rolling out a hotfix for a recent bug regarding invulnerable Wizards,” writes a Blizzard community manager on the Diablo 3 forum. “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 [email protected], or by completing the Hacks Report web form. In your correspondence, please include any steps necessary to replicate the issue as well as any additional details you are able to provide.”

Those rolling hotfixes should have by now reached every server globally, bringing to a close of a day of frantic loot grinding by invulnerable, Magic Find-bloated Inferno wizards. Here’s a fun video of one wizard taking on seven elite packs at once.
