Boycott Demon Hunters!
A fan infuriated by the item changes on the PTR for patch 2.2 has has ordered a strategy both illogical and counter-productive, urging players to boycott Demon Hunters! Let’s see his argument: I didn’t follow every link provided, but all that I looked at were fairly generic, “my class should be more awesome” complaints. Imagine […]

The Jay Wilson Bug: God mode Barbarians

Posted 24 Jul 2012 by

We’ve seen God mode DiabloWiki wizards and next up for deification: DiabloWiki Barbarians !

The basic premise is you use DiabloWiki furious charge runed to dreadnaught to rush into a boss battle(Ghom or Cydaea) and quickly skip the cinematic. The game then registers you as constantly in charge mode. Damaging anything you walk towards, and healing you due to the rune. You are then free to switch skills and slaughter everything in your wake.

There are also reports about this working for Demon Hunters who cast DiabloWikiSmoke Screen immediately after DiabloWikiVault, but I cannot confirm yet. God mode has now been doubled and I would expect a hotfix tonight or tomorrow at the latest. Enjoy it while it last Barbs!

Will DiabloWiki Monks and DiabloWikiWitch Doctors get a shot at Godhood or will Blizzard bring every class down to earth? Sound off in the comments about what you think about our newest Deity.

Special thanks to Kripp for putting together the awesome tutorial vid.

Update: Blizzard is aware of it and working on it, and they’re not going to ban Kripp for documenting it.

Diablo player Kripparrian, uploaded a video on youtube showing to the public about the GOD MODE barbarian bug that he is using. On the video, he showed the how the bug works and taught everyone who watched that video how to do that to their own barbarian, which is not reasonable and not acceptable.

I personally think that this action not only violates the rule of fair play of the diablo society, which this bug can change a barbarian become completely invincible, which is not fair to other players. Further more, Kripp not only using this bug, but also teaching and encouraging others to use this bug, which is totally unacceptable as well.

I wish BZ will not let someone to destroy the wonderful atmosphere of Diablo, and will make punishment(Banning) to this kind of player. I know that any player that you find taking advantage of any bugs for gains will always be severely actioned, and often closed as you take these matters very seriously.
Vasadan: We are aware of the Barbarian bug and are working on it. However, let’s not throw mud at other players. Locking this thread.
