Word of a Diablo 3 Legendary Gambling Exploit (allegedly) that lets players gamble for specific legendary items with a high chance of success has trickled out, and since reporting on Diablo 3 news is what we do, here’s the deal. The OP appeared in this cryptic thread on Battle.net, flashing a screenshot of an inventory and stash absolutely stuffed full of 6 or 8 or 12 of the same legendary item, all lined up. Players asked why and how, he gave vague replies, most people figured the pic was shopped and he was a troll, etc.
But perhaps not?Other players have chimed in to say that it does work, and one guy posted a convoluted explanation on Reddit.
Diablo.IncGamers.com has not tested this and we do not endorse it. Take the alleged technique for what it’s worth, and if Blizzard decides this is a hack and starts banning people, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The trick works because the game (allegedly) selects certain legendaries as potential drops in each game, upon game creation. These are the legs that will drop from monsters or via gambling, so here’s how you take advantage of that. Again, this is all allegedly:
Is this a problem? Needs of a fix? Needs of a rollback? Or no biggie since there’s no way to trade or sell the legendaries and people who do it are just short-circuiting their own play experience? Personally, I think the real exploit is being able to rack up mega-shards and gold bombing through a low level character’s Torment 6 game, and the supposed ability to gamble a bunch of Wizard legendary items is a lesser offense, but you guys are free to disagree.
