Though we don’t expect this exploit to be up very long without a patch, a “God Mode” of sorts has been discovered in Diablo III. Gamers who use the wizard class, no matter what difficulty they play on, can essentially be invulnerable.
A user on Blizzard’s forums posted the exploit first, giving step-by-step directions on how to achieve the “God Mode”. Below, we’ve listed the instructions on how to perform the action:
Step 1: Select Teleport – Fracture. Bind it to a key
Step 2: Select Archon, tested with Improved Archon
Step 3: Hover your mouse over or near your charcter
Step 4: Press Teleport
Step 5: QUICKLY(!) Press Archon
The mods at Blizzard’s forums have been rather quick to remove the instructions, but the exploit should still work until Blizzard patches it. The cause for concern here is that players can basically run around without dying and collect items. These items can then be sold in the auction house for real money, which could get ugly.
