Diablo 3 Experience Cheat Hotfix Coming Soon

The Doggy Discount path to Paragon 100 is about to close, as Blizzard is working on a

hotfix to stop pet kills in PvP from awarding experience.

Lylirra was customarily thorough in her discourse:
We’ve seen a lot of posts about this subject, so I just wanted to confirm that a

hotfix is currently in the works to address a bug that’s causing player-summoned

pets to grant experience when killed in the Scorched Chapel. We hope to implement the

fix soon, and will provide an update to everyone once it’s live. (For clarity,

hotfixes are updates we make on our end that don’t require you to download a new

patch. Some hotfixes will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may

require server restarts to take effect.)
In the meantime, since it’s not intended for pets summoned by players or items to

grant experience, we encourage you to game responsibly and avoid exploiting this bug

to gain an advantage. Not only can this potentially lead to your account being

penalized (depending on the situation), but more importantly it’s not really fair to

your fellow players. When exploited, bugs like this can negatively impact the

enjoyment of others – which is why we’re working as quickly as we can to fix it,

and why we’d appreciate your help in keeping the effects of the bug as minimal as

possible until it’s resolved.

This issue was originally reported on our forums during 1.0.7 PTR testing; however,

we unfortunately missed the reports before patch 1.0.7 was released, and as a result

the bug went live. So, a big thank you not only to the players who reported the bug

initially by posting, but also to those who helped bring it to our attention by

contacting our Hacks team.

On that note, if you’re not sure how to report a bug or exploit, here’s a quick

If you’d like to report a bug, the best thing to do is post in the Bug Report forum.

(Or in the PTR Bug Report forum, if you encounter a bug on the PTR.)
If you’d like to report an exploit, you can email hacks@blizzard.com or use our

Hacks Report web form.
While not every report will receive a response, we sincerely appreciate everyone’s

help in keeping us informed of possible issues as they arise.

Not even trying to troll, I’m just a big fan of transparency when “penal[ties]”

are involved, and am suggesting you could avoid a lot of heartburn by simply laying

out the ban policy, rollback policy, etc. ahead of time.
Lylirra: Totally understand. It’s a legitimate concern. The best response to your

question is actually covered by our exploitation policy, which I linked previously:

Bug Exploitation

Some bugs are minor and do not affect gameplay, but sometimes bugs can be used to

provide an unfair advantage to certain players or negatively affect the game itself.

An appropriate penalty for exploitation is determined by whether or not:

The exploit is performed intentionally, maliciously, or repeatedly
The exploit damages another hero or their gameplay
An attempt has been made to conceal the exploit’s use

While certain exploits can be cut-and-dry, most are complicated beasts. Sometimes,

players will use an exploit and not realize it. Sometimes, an exploit will exist, but

it won’t be damaging to any other player or the economy. In those situations, our

priority will always be to fix what’s wrong as quickly as we can so that the game is

better for everyone (as opposed to calling down the banhammer). If someone is

actively abusing an exploit, though, and doing so maliciously and knowingly, then

yeah, we might step in — but it would likely be something that’s handled on a case

-by-case basis. Again, our primary goal is it to improve the game environment, not

get some sort of revenge, so whether or not someone is penalized really depends on

the individual situation.

Diablo 3 game takes place in Sanctuary, the dark fantasy world of the Diablo series,

twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Deckard Cain and his niece Leah are in

the Tristram Cathedral investigating ancient texts regarding an ominous prophecy.

Suddenly, a mysterious star falling from the sky strikes the Cathedral, creating a

deep crater into which Deckard Cain disappears.

Even so, the best course of action if you know an exploit exists is not to use it. If

you want to submit a report, you can (and we’d be thankful for it), but that’d be

going above and beyond.

And somebody read the submissions from here: http://us.blizzard.com/en-

us/submit/hacks.html Correct?
Lylirra: Correct, both our hacks@blizzard.com and Hacks web form inboxes are

reviewed. As noted, though, reports submitted via those outlets will not receive a


As you said it yourself, dev team knew about it, released it live and I bet many ppl

already exploited game mechanic, that was implemented in the client via official

Lylirra: On the contrary, I said that we did not know about the bug when the patch

went live. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse in your mind, but it was issue on

our end, and we’re already taking a look at our reporting processes to see how we

can improve them to reduce the chances of something like this happening again.

We’re not infallible, though, and we may not catch every bug or report, but we can

always do better. It means a lot to us that players submit bugs and report exploits,

and we want to make sure they’re being utilized in the right ways.

So… are you guys happy to see the fix? Hoping the exploiting miscreants get smote

for their sins? Or are you a bad evil exploiter who is sorry to see it go?

No matter where you stand on the those questions, I think we can all agree that it

was nice that the game provided some reason to play a Witch Doctor, if only for a

couple of weeks…
