Diablo 3 Farmer Exploits Bots and Gold Farming
In an unexpected turn of events, an unidentified Chinese gold farmer has come out to give an interview regarding the depressing state of the virtual economy of Diablo 3.
He is concerned that with the large amount of botters and hackers currently infesting the game servers, gold and items will be greatly devalued, causing the gold farmer to turn in a much smaller profit for his efforts.
In the interview, the gold farmer estimates that there are at least ten thousand farmer accounts logging into the game, many of them small fry who managed to hijack other players’ accounts.
All of these farmers are waiting for the launch of the real money auction house, after which they will flood the market with gold and items. They will also be trying to undercut each other, which will drive down the value of gold very fast and cause a rapid inflation.
The gold farmer is also concerned that Blizzard’s plan to increase the drop rates of items will only make the problem worse.
Meanwhile, the farmers are currently selling in the black markets outside of Blizzard’s control.
The gold farmer also revealed that these bots are online 24/7, but Blizzard is not banning them because they will also be profiting from their activities through the real money auction house. The gold farmer also believes that Blizzard could easily detect and ban these accounts if they really wanted to; they know all of the exploits the hackers are using because the videos are all over YouTube.

The botters are simply just automating these exploits.
All Blizzard would be needing to do to resolve this is to update Warden.
When asked why he had come out to give the interview, the gold farmer says that they just want the small fries to be banned. Of course, if majority of the botters were to be cut out, then the gold farmer would be facing a lot less competition.
The gold farmer also just wants to make sure that they will be getting more profit out of the game, hence their plea not to increase item drop rates as well as their suggestion to create more gold sinks for the game.
This gold farmer is also confident that even if Blizzard starts banning the small fries, their botting operation will remain undetected. If they do get detected eventually, it will not be until after two or three months, and they would still have made a profit by then. They would also just create new botter accounts and fix the problem.
The gold farmer also revealed in the interview how other players’ accounts are getting hijacked. Apparently, they do not directly hack the information from Blizzard’s game servers or forums, as their security is impenetrable.
Instead, these are hacked from other places on the Internet that are less secure, such as social media sites and other gaming sites or forums, and not necessarily through phishing. The hackers would then try to use this information to log in to Diablo 3, just to see if it would work; this method is called combo.
In other cases, they would also try this information on PayPal, then use the hijacked account to buy additional Diablo 3 keys.
