[Exploit] Captain Haile's Supply Chest

General Discussion
There are 5-10, if not dozens of characters currently exploiting this repeatable gold farming spot that is relatively safe from harm (watch for repair costs from interacting with the object). In both Acts 3 and 4, right next to Vidar the Collector, there is a chest named Captain Haile's Supply Chest. Follow these easy steps to get at LEAST 1000g/hour:

1) Start a game in Act 3 or 4 (WATCH FOR THE QUEST WHERE MOBS START IN TOWN)
2) Walk to Vidar the Collector
3) Click on Captain Haile's Supply Chest (beware of repair costs from clicking something)
4) Collect 1-100 gold
5) Leave Game
6) Repeat

This is a major exploit that needs to be addressed. The most obvious (and easiest) solution is to make it so no items that you click on can drop gold. This will stop all those pesky botters and farmers from ruining the AH. Thanks for reading!
You are like 10 threads out of date.
I can farm 100,000G per hour just running through act II on Hell, that's without gold gear. i wouldn't call farming "at least 1,000g/hour" an exploit.
Hey I got 300 gold from it once, so I went out and bought me an il63 item (because most every il63 items are crud)
well,l another nerf this thread, as if the game doesnt already have enough farm spots nerfed.

Tried opening the box over and over. Didn't care for it. Too much pain, not enough profit.

Win.
Righteous post. I'm tired of farming Act 1 cellars... think I'll this for now. At that gold per hour rate, I can afford the fletching on a single arrow my bow uses by next Thursday. Beeyah!
