I agree. For anyone who reads this that may not know, If you only have a certain amount of gold to spend, try putting it in the bottom left hand box "max buyout" This will save you all the crying and ridiculous prices along with the actual "auctions" and just show you what you can afford right then and there!

I wish that were feasible, but this is definitely something law enforcement is not going to look twice at unless there is actual bank account/credit card/personal identity being stolen. How do I know? Career in criminal justice wink.gif BUT, if you were referring to just being able to do the investigation yourself and take the law into your own hands... then that would be possible. Although it IS a federal crime, its definitely on the lowest of the low end of priorities unless real [important] information is being stolen.

you can bet your bottom dollar that blizzard is in it somehow biggrin.gif why are only certain countries in the SEA servers? wouldn't it make more sense to drive all asian IP traffic to the SEA servers? why do we have to share the lag of a trans pacific hop when EU have their own server? why does the SEA server only serve a limited number of asian pacific countries?

it's all about $.... they know the gold farmers represent a sizable portion of their customer base... why do you think when you see gold spammer in general chat and you report the spam and nothing gets done about it?... it's not that they cant build a filter to find out who has been spamming.... it's not that hard of a script/filter to write to find all the gold spammers...

I posted a video from a gold farmer guy awhile back, he said that most of the accounts that get stolen are from hacked community forums. They just try the same email and password to log in to the game, and tons of them work since people use the same ones.

That's much more likely then Blizzard getting hacked, and would still explain the people who have been too careful to be keylogged getting accounts taken. So make sure your D3 pass is unique!

Anyone soloing Inferno A2+ with WD? I could really use some help.

I have decent gear, and farm A1 Butcher effortlessly, but I go to A2, can't even come close.


Currently I'm using

P/D-Splinters
Grasp-Extra Slow
Wall- Slow
Hex - Healing
Spirit Walk - Healing
Horrify - Armor Bonus

Blood Ritual
Spirit Vessel
Pierce the Veil

35K Life
A/S 2.02
30K DPS
2.5K Armor
Lowest Res is 350, median of about 385.


Short of getting better gear, is there any hope for me haha?

That's much more likely then Blizzard getting hacked, and would still explain the people who have been too careful to be keylogged getting accounts taken. So make sure your D3 pass is unique!

Another trend "we" see is that when people actually sign up on those gold websites, they use the same information as their Blizzard accounts as well...Obviously they don't tell Blizzard, Bioware etc...But, it's a reality.

Like I said before, remember when SOE was hacked...And they had to send a personalized email to every single person who's information was on the hacked cluster? ~ I was one of those people...and there's a very rigid protocol in regards to a leak/hack/data exposure etc...

When you're compromised, consumer protection laws FORCE that company to report everything to the FBI and then they must answer specifically to those people on the compromised server, above and beyond alerting the public...These are actual laws.

In my case, because I was technically an employee with SOE at the time, I received a very personalized email from the head of security, stating what was breached, when it was breached, what was stolen, what information I had on the server and that I was actually covered by SOE in terms of period losses. ~ As a customer of SOE, I received an email that had all of the above information but, it didn't include that I was covered under SOE, obviously, just that my information was compromised and had to be changed.

So if Blizzard was ever hacked and they failed to report the above, we'd all be millionaires, literally...Since I didn't enjoy my Starbucks Chai this morning out of my own personal SBX in my living room, I know for a fact that Blizzard hasn't been hacked yet.

To combat hacking I'd do the following:

1) Put your Blizzard account on a separate email...Make a Gmail account and make that email/pass extremely unique...If it's a hassle, you'll remember it better.

2) Make your password something unique with at least 3 capitals...

A lot of people go with random numbers/letters...That really won't ultimately help you, especially in terms of the hardware available on the market...The number crunch is virtually the same between a a2J4k3m4N2S4D4 and Blizzard1SuckS3.

I would mix it up a bit, though...Each variation adds a good amount of TIME to your being hacked.

3) Get an authenticator.

This falls into the same category as Blizzard being hacked BUT, Blizzard can't control this being brute-forced which, is what is happening.

Gold site 01 gets your info, gives it to Hacker 01 who in turn, flips it on Blizzard's site, trying thousands of variations until it gets a hit...Then, if you have an authenticator, I'd give them about a week before they get into your account...Given that they have the right password.

4) Set up the mobile SMS alert app...

This is NOT an authenticator BUT, gives you some serious power.

The moment your information is changed and you're not the one changing that information, CALL THEM.

Trace-routing that IP ultimately, is more important than your gold...I really hate saying that and I'll more than likely get a mass of QQ but, that IP is key to actually stopping this crap from happening...So CALL THEM immediately and alert them to the fact that you're being hacked.

They can stop it right there, track the Hacker to wherever he is and you've now created a litigious situation that they can act on immediately.

5) Given the algorithms, if you followed #2, it would realistically take a Hacker about...2-3 months to get your information right from scratch...So, change that password every 3 months...

~~~

If you actually do the above and don't buy gold with that information...Or email...You won't get hacked...Period.

Oh, and 6) STOP BUYING GOLD.

There you go.

^ i've read as well that somebody had the d3 website splash screen replaced with a seemingly official page that asked you to login. so Make sure the website address is legit as well when you go to the forums or check your account on bnet.

passwords are not case sensitive though from what I hear.

I don't know what it is with this game vs the previous Diablos I played, but I'm already bored as hell. Also, farming Inferno is not rewarding at all. I have 250% MF and I can't really get more as a barb or else I die too fast. I've killed hundreds of elite/rare inferno packs and I have yet to see a level 60 item or anything good for that matter.
post #6919 of 21038
Finally got to Inferno over the weekend and got a Legendary drop once I got 5 stacks of valor. Level 59 1 hander with 400 damage, other then the damage it has a lot of really nice stats so I will try to sell it on the AH.

Hardest group I have found was a gold pack of horde, vortex, plagued, desecration in a small tunnel.

I have a similar setup skills-wise. I use firebomb instead of the poison darts (because of splash). The main thing different for me though is the hex and horrify. I use Soul Harvest with Siphon to get life and increase INT with Zombie Bears. I basically run in, use Soul Harvest to gain dmg, and spam Zombie Bears, and since the soul harvest takes a second to bring in the health, it usually happens right as I'm getting low. I then use Spirit Walk to get out of there before I die.I am seriously underpowered for probably even Act 4 hell, but with this build, I'm able to do more damage and survive longer than I have with a lot of other builds.
