Diablo 3 Botter Banned After Streaming Botting

The issue of botting has been around Diablo 3 for a long time, but has become much bigger in recent months as new and improved bots let players cheat the system more effectively. Unlike in the Diablo 2 days, Diablo 3 botting isn’t really done for legendary items (since those drop so fast during normal play), or even for EXP (since high level multiplayer games earn it 50x faster than solo).

Easter Egg: The Secret Cow Bounty?

One of the best of the new bounties in Patch 2.2 is The Queen’s Dessert, which appears in the Caverns of Araneae in Act One.

Diablo 3: Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

In honor of the Seattle Seahawks’ bizarre decision to not win the SuperBowl, I created a thread in which we could share our similarly foolish last minute poor choices in the realm of Diablo 3. This is a bit like our Diablo 3 Darwin Awards thread, though that one’s just about dumb deaths. Defeat from the Jaws of Victory is more like an error that wasn’t necessarily crippling or fatal, but was really dumb and preventable in retrospect.
