"God Mode" Exploit Found in Diablo III, Makes Players Invincible

A loophole has reportedly been found in Diablo III that can, in effect, make you invincible. Which for a game that has a real-money auction house attached to it could be a bit of a problem.


While it only works for the Wizard class, there's apparently no restriction on which game mode (normal or harder) you use. The exploit renders a few effects inactive, but on the flipside, well, you'll be invulnerable.

A poster on the Blizzard forums says to active the exploit, you need to do the following:

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

Note that, given the consequences of letting people run around without fear of dying while picking up items they can sell for actual money, Blizzard will likely be working super fast to get this fixed.

lol, I expect these kinds of bugs will be the norm in Diablo 3. RMT is the kind of incentive that gets people searching for and hoarding exploits. I bet this invincible wizard bug has been known about by more secretive players for at least 1-2 weeks.
