Diablo 3 exploit makes Wizard invincible

The woes keep coming for Blizzard as it has been revealed that a fairly simple exploit allows players complete invulnerability by entering a series of commands with the Wizard.

The bug was spotted and reported on Blizzard's Diablo 3 forums and the fanbase quickly took notice with dozens of users saying they'd be heading online to topple Hardcore mode now that the bug protected their characters.

It's unclear what the ramifications of this will be, although it seems clear that Blizzard is aware of the issue in some capacity as they have removed the technique for activating the invulnerability bug from the original post. It's likely Blizzard will issue an emergency patch to fix this before long, but by then plenty of free gear could potentially be farmed from high level bosses.

It seems a tad unfair to pick on Blizzard for one small exploit that happened to be the equivalent of God Mode. It's more bad luck than negligence on Blizzard's part, however this is the sort of thing they needed to anticipate when implementing the Real-Money Auction House, and fans have a right to be annoyed.

The gold farmers have got to be having a jolly old time this morning.

    I stopped playing a few weeks ago but I saw my friend playing with a wizard yesterday. I'm not sure if this is what they were talking about but all he did was max crit chance and had the passive that reduced cooldowns by 1 second with every crit hit. He was then able to permacast diamond skin and stationary tornados and was completely untouchable, even standing in Gram's poison clouds in inferno a3.
