d3wizardRemember yesterday we reported that thanks to an exploit, it was discovered that the Wizard class could essentially achieve invulnerability, thus allowing players to go on a rampage without fear of dying (hello Hardcore mode!). Safe to assume Blizzard worked quickly to squash that bug and have since rolled out a hotfix to address the issue, and releasing a statement at the same time:

“We are currently rolling out a hotfix for a recent bug regarding invulnerable Wizards. We will continue to carefully monitor this issue and welcome anyone with information about bugs or hacks to submit a detailed report to our Hacks Team by emailing hacks@blizzard.com, or by completing the Hacks Report web form. In your correspondence, please include any steps necessary to replicate the issue as well as any additional details you are able to provide.”

So if you were a little slow on the take, your chance at experiencing a invulnerable wizard might be over. Then again, that’s probably a good thing since exploiting the game could ultimately lead to your account getting banned!
