Diablo 3 exploit creates invincible wizards

If you're a wizard in Diablo 3 with a tendency to die horribly and repeatedly, take heart. All you need is a few simple tricks and a comfort with ethical gray areas, and you can cheat your way to victory. A newly discovered game exploit turns the wizard class invulnerable.

A thread on the Blizzard forums (via Kotaku) detailed the exploit, although Blizzard has since nuked the how-to of the exploit. The thread warns that some effects like Frozen won't work, and it might take a few tries, but several other players have confirmed it by trying themselves. According to the users, the process is as follows:

  • Select Teleport - Fracture. Bind it to a key

  • Select Archon, tested with Improved Archon

  • Hover your mouse over or near your charcter

  • Press Teleport

  • QUICKLY(!) Press Archon

Some forum-goers have claimed they plan to breeze their way through tough dungeons in Hardcore using the exploit, which is probably exactly what Blizzard doesn't want considering the implications for the auction house. Still, as of the time of writing Blizzard hasn't patched the exploit or addressed it on its forums, so it's still active for now.
