    Need Help With Possible Scam/Hack. "Loath Crusher Wirts Leg"

    My friend, isnt very smart, and traded most of everything he had, for something called "Loath Crusher Wirts Leg". Ive never seen it before and Google dosent come up with anything. He said that you could teleport (and did), even in town. Personally i thought it was a hack. But i just dont know. If you need the specs, i can get them to you later. But it had nothing to Sorc ot Tele skills.
    Please Help!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the sorc's teleport ability always worked into and out of town? Maybe he has another item that gives him that skill if he's not a sorc.
    I've never heard of this item and could find nothing on ebay (where hacked items usually show up first). Sounds like someone had charsi imbue Wirt's Leg. Is this possible?
    What other skills did he claim? Teleport amulets are quite common so that's no big deal.

    you can tele into town, but not in town itself or out of town

    tele in town is a hack

    @Dufus - No, Teleport never worked in town.


    The bug does not allow you to 'teleport' in town, but it makes you invisible, so people equip the leg, move a little, then un-equip making it seem like they teleported in town.

    its not a bug
    the person selling it makes a show (run around go to weapon switch etc...)
    then quickly uses warriv to go to act2
    so it looks like he became invisible

    there is a page full with warnings vs hacks and scams on diabloii.net
    (this one included)

    http://www.diabloii.net/battlenet/warnings.shtml

    and there is a lot of usefull information on it.
    imho anybody who plays the realms should have read it
    it would have prevented many scams

    Heh heh... btw this "town warping" is not really a bug or hack of any kind. I can reproduce it at any time, heres how you do it:
    1) Run around.
    2) While running, unplug cable from your cable modem (or disable modem by a button if you have).
    3) Keep running while unplugged.
    4) Now run into range of the person looking at you, and enable modem again. To another person it will look like you vanished and showed up again somewhere else... :D

    Do you have a pic of the leg perhaps?
    Your friend is apparently new to the game so maybe you could help him out with tradings and give him some info about different scams.
    I've never heard of this scam before but it sounds pretty dumb/lame, I can't believe some people spend time trying things like this.
    Hopefully he didn't trade hr's worth of stuff for that, heh.
    I'm sorry for your friend's loss.

    the warning page explains this scam into detail
    and i tested it with a friend, if u pratice at
    going to act2 with warriv quickly it just looks like you vanish
    imo there is no bug that makes you invisible (only hax charms on open)

    It is a popular scam. They just imbue Wirt's Leg. My eight year old son did it.
    I was looking at his stuff and saw that he had a Rare Wirt's leg and said to him "what did you do, Imbue Wirt's leg?" He did it for fun, dosen't even know what 'scam' means at his age.

    I thought it would be funny to show it to people and tell them it does somthing strange in cow level like give more exp. or better drops...you know, start a silly rumor, never occured to me to trade it, though it might have if someone had offered something. Still, I wouldn't have taken anything for it.

    How bad is it to start a silly rumor? Would you all hate me if I did such a thing?

    hmm

    i ve seen people realy go invisible on open bnet, whit hacked items of course.

    what i think they used is the gloom "skill", the glooms turn invisible often. so, whit enugh hacking, you must be able to get this feature ( i dont know the tecnical background, but it must be a skill, feature or some such in game terms. very class specific [gloom only] skill perhaps ? ) on a item as well. i ve had someone hand me a charm which actualy turned me invisible as soon as i had it in my inventory. taht was back in 1.09 i think, but they certainly even developed theyr hacks...

    i assume it can t be possible though to get this by accident in a legit enviroment ?

    dont think it is possible but the charm you mention still exists on open battle.net (and in ring form too)
    if someone would use it on the realms (if it existed) then it would be all over the forums

    well rumors can cause harm
    only think about the anni bug rumours

    first people said all annis give 5% (to make perfects cheaper)
    now i hear a lot that 10% anni is bugged and only gives 1%

    these are examples of rumors used to rip of the "ignorant"
    we should all be a bit more carefull listening to and spreading rumors about bugs and unlikely stories

    There are a couple ways to "go invisible" which are just glitchs in the game, nothing to do with "hacks" or anything. For example, if you use the str bug and use Double Swing as a barb, that has weird effects. I see it on my screen as the barb dissapearing and reappearing whenever it attacks. Also, I've seen some of my friends dissappear in the Blood Moor while dueling and you can still mouse over and see their name. Purely by accident. Also, if you use the Double Throw skill when str bugged, your barb will not move or having any throwing animation when anyone else in the game sees you. The throwing weapons that you are throwing will also be invisible if you do this.

    the disappearing act with warriv is very popular. actually i am very good at it. once i tried it on a guy to see if he would offer something. when he saw it he was like: "wtf man? how did you do thaT?" then he offered some really good stuff. in the end i told him that my item was too cool to trade it. he was really angry after that :lol:
