I was just perusing the top DPS barbs as listed at http://www.diabloprogress.com/us/rating.stat_dps_unbuffed/class.barbarian/ and realized that 4 out of the 5 top Barbs have EXACTLY the same amulet!
I haven't checked any of their other gear but this leads me to the following question. What is the probability that EXACTLY the same amulet drops enough times that these 4 players and probably more have ended up buying them?
If the chance of this happening is as low as I imagine it must be, has someone hacked D3 and somehow multiplied this item and sold them off at surely some very high price?
The item in question is a Rare "Teeming Necklace":
Crit Hit Damage +100%
Crit Hit Chance +10%
Is it possible for this EXACT amulet to drop multiple times? Wouldn't we at least see slight variations in the stats?
RNG is indeed RNG in certain aspects (such as legendary drops etc) but when 28 players have the same exact values on the same exact affixes that happens to be godly, it certainly questions how much RNG had to do with it and raises the point of cheating
Oh for the love of...
IT IS A DUPE. MannerCookie, Fookya, and I called this over two months ago that this amulet would be duped. We provided proof, we showed the circumstances, and condensed it in one tidy little thread that clearly needs to be written in crayons if you and others are still thinking, "maybe...".
For the love of Christ, think!
Thanks for all of the interesting info. A quick google on Item Duping shows how it's done which involves faking a hacked account and having Blizzard restore the "lost" item to the original owner while graciously allowing a third party to keep the item that's now been duped through a "hack and sell" con job.
This also explained EXACTLY why Blizzard won't do anything about these duped items; because in their eyes, these items are semi-legit!
Ultimately in the long run, those items will only end up in the hand of the richest players willing to put the most money into making their characters the best of the best which is fine I guess. If you're willing to throw loads of real money at a virtual world to make your balls feel digitally bigger, then all the power to ya! :P hahahaha
I'll stick to feeling fairly proud that I've gamed and played the markets hard and have built up the character I have and the real money sitting in my RMAH account without having spent a dollar more than the cost of the game itself. :D
Again, thanks for all the great info regarding my question everyone. :)
Item rollback is duping. You are using Blizzard's ability to roll back your "hacked" account to trick them into duping items for you.
