Diablo III Inferno Item Booster Pack Winners, Invulnerable Wizard Bug, Auction House Price Tracking Tool, Wow Annual Pass - Four

Diablo III Inferno Item Booster Pack Winners
We have the two winners for our first booster pack giveaway. Congratulations to our US Region winner Cobrakaji and our EU Region winner Vepo.

Keep in mind if you did not win we will be holding this again on Friday! Note that you will need to be active and have at least 5 new posts between the first contest and the new contest in order to be eligible to enter!




Invulnerable Wizard Bug
For those unaware there is an exploit going around the web today allowing a Wizard to be fully invincible (However it now looks like the exploit was around for at least a month). We contacted Blizzard about this issue and they confirm that they are aware of the issue and are actively working on a solution that we should see very soon.

Update: Blizzard has announced rolling restarts, it looks like the hotfix should be going live.

In your correspondence, please include any steps necessary to replicate the issue as well as any additional details you are able to provide.

Rolling Restarts
Not all servers have picked up the hotfix yet, hence the term rolling restarts. There are several servers under each of the Global Play regions (EU, US, Asia).

Maintenance on all of them should end around 7:20 PM PST. By that time, the hotfix should be applied to all servers. (Source)




Auction House Price Tracking Tool
nathans1844 has posted a great tool for tracking prices on the auction house. The tool tracks the data about every 15 minutes. It's also important to note that it currently only tracks the US auction house. He is currently looking for feedback so that he may improve on the tool. So make sure to stop by his thread and leave your thoughts.

    This game has become a complete joke. What the fuck? I would have been happy with D2 with updated graphics. I have such fond gaming memories of D2.

    Knowscott: you could always go play D2 instead, no-one's forcing you to play it :)

    Pico would have been such a great and hot news reporter if ONLY it wasn't for her voice.

    Every single damn time i try to watch the curse thing, her voice just cuts my ears. It saddens me. :(

    Yeah, it only took like 2 months for them to notice it. Unfortunately for them there's only like 3-4 more broken builds, plus thousands of botters, scammers and dupers going around in the game. That's what happens when you try to include real money into your game. What would it matter that people duped and botted if there was no AH. It's saddening to every day learn a new way in which Blizzard has screwed up my favorite franchise.

    Anyone know if they are handing out bans for the invincible Wizard? I was also under the impression that this "bug" has been around since launch.
