Screenshots of duped/bugged/prepatch items that still exist on realms Please note that this board is against using hacks, or hacked items, but we should simply admit that they exist. A lot of legit players do not even know about this and it is hard for them to compete in public duels, when they do not even know what to expect. Duped, bugged and prepatch items are mostly a thing of the past - that exist on Non-Ladder realms, although argueably High Runes are also copied on ladder realms. I do not play ladder, so I am not sure if 3 20 20, perfect annihilus charms etc. are copied on ladder, but I guess they are, because one can found copied version on non ladder. In addition, people posses lots of legit, prepatch items, with modifiers that cannot spawn any more. The purpose of this thread is just to inform legit players, that certain items still exist on the realms. Please post screenshots/stats with information if the items still exist and information if they are legit/descriptions. General guide: Bugged item - item that should not spawn, yet it somehow spawned on realms. Those items can be divided into two groups: imported items - in the past (and according to rumors up to this day, IMO the rumors are wrong)- hackers could directly upload items into battle.net servers. Consequently, those items had incredible stats and each had a different item number, thus they will not dissapear (are "perm"). real bugged items - created by some mistake of the server; all those items have the same item number, consequently all the items on the realm are "unperm" - not permament copies of them (examples: bugged Snatchii gloves) Unperm items - this means that item is a copy of another item; everything can be copied, but unless it is a jewel/rune that is put into a slot, it will dissapear when flagged by the server while leaving the game. Consequetnly there are two types of duplicated items - permanent ones, which are mostly a thing of the past, when hackers could easily create items with different numbers (or created items before such numbering was introduced by blizzard); and unperm items, that all have the same item number. (special care is required to maintain the unperm items - before leaving each game a trade window has to be opened in order to get rid of the deletion flag on the item -> when the window is opened a player should leave game immediatelly). 1.08/prepatch items - items that can either be legit, or duped and contain modifiers (mods) that cannot spawn any more; 20fhr boots, -40% lower requirements for classic items. They are often perm, 1.08 dupes; but unperm copies of them exist. Hybrid runewords - runewords where the runes of one runeword are exchanged for runes of another - e.g. "grief of doom" berserker axe - the item has the runeword properties of grief, but the runes are from doom which means that the properties given by runes (not rueneword) are different - often better. Those items are perm and provided by shops for real cash. Not sure how they are created, but popular in the public BvX BvB scene. Zodbugged items - another thing of the past; in previous patches, one could put a ZOD rune in an ethereal item (e.g. eth shako) and then remove the ZOD rune from the item -> the item would remain both ethereal and indestructible. This is no longer possible and apparently only few people did this in the past, thus such items are rare (although as always, unperm copies also exist) There are unperm copies of perfect items - e.g. 20/20 annis, 3 20 20 jewels etc. but I guess everyone knows this. Here is a collection of items I posses: BUGGED ITEMS: "bug-belt" The belt has some really incredible stats and only few builds would prefer arachnid belt over it. Both unperm and permanent copies of the belt exist. The belt was uploaded into battle.net servers by hackers years ago. Now (other?) hackers copy it and trade those belts. Only availible on Europe realm as far as I know. Bug gloves aka Snatchii gloves aka Steelclash gloves The gloves are a real "bug" as far as I know - there was some glitch in the server and they were spawned. Hackers copied them and only unperm versions exist, because each copy has the same number as the original pair. A lot of FOH players use them. Bugged Atmas Boots IMO those boots are generally useless; Ive never seen a build that can utilize them; perhaps some sort of a tele-javazon/necro. As far as I know, no permanent copies exist, Shady items - in theory those are 1.08 items, but they are often duped - it is very hard to learn if one is legit (basically only from a player who played the game few years ago) or a typical unperm copy that can dissapear at any time after leaving the game, unless special care is taken for them, as above (please note that all my items in this thread apart the 1.08 azurewrath, are unperm): 1.08 Valkirie Wing Ive read that this item is very popular on west realm; I guess some builds could benefit from the quite decent mods. 1.08 highlord's wrath amulet Has 30 faster run walk instead of 20 ias. Both legit and unperm versions exist. Very expensive. Viper Gyre ring (pre-lod -> classic dupe) The ring is not very popular in LOD, much more popular in classic, due to the massive LR stack. Both legit and unperm versions exist. Typical, perfect duped jewel- 40% ed, 15 ias Guess everyone has seen them. Legit versions exist, but I do not think that in such quantity... Legit 1.08 azurewrath that I posses - they do not spawn any more. Completely useless I had a whole character made of classic dupes, unfortunately I lost it and the screenshots I have are in Polish.
