D2, just for fun

General Discussion
Over the years as players we have seen many hacks, and scams.

My favorite was the "Bugged Werts Leg". If you don't know this scam this will be a treat.

1. "Get Werts Leg, and throw some gems in it to color change it". Tell potential trader that this leg turns you invisible.

2. Prove to him the item works when you put it on. "To do this you go to A1, and click past Warriv, as you pass him go to A2. This will give the appearance you have disappeared. Quickly go back to A1, you will appear much further away from where you were when you went to A2.

Trade leg.

In it's day you wouldn't believe how many people fell for this scam.

This is a oldy, but goody. What was your favorite, angering, funny scam hack you have seen over all these years.

Again, this is for fun, I know hacking etc is against the rules, we all have opinions.

Appreciate you sharing yours.
Had some fun with anni when you weren't able to trade it unless it was dropped. I had told a buddy to hide in Jerhyn's palace and wait for my q.
I was outside below the porch while the victim was on it, we both dropped our items. Proceeded to run simultaneously to said items. My buddy had a decent level vigor on just in case, when I gave the q he came outta nowhere and took the anni.
Same trick different location with the sewers entrance at the docks. What I do also remeber was the rune vs. torch scam inside the tavern in act 2, where you were ment to run arount the bar and get your precious coin. However you were just able to grab it through the counter.

We all grew up with this game and sometimes, as a child, it was frustating to have to learn. But with each new ladder you're prepared a little bit more to deal with those clowns.

Every once in a while I encounter a mephi-soulstone or cap+emerald scammer and I can't help but smile for a second that someone still tries this in 2017.
The typical meph soulstone/emerald cap and rattlecage tals armor lookalike scam is what ive been g etting
Steelclash/stormshield is also a classic

If you fell for it, you are *** as ***
Don't be a smartass here, everyone has fallen once for each scam, not less but not more either ;).

And since it's been so many years ago I guess hardly anybody is really salty for that loss anymore.
This should be retitled !@#$% moves made by children...
The a2 palace sprint was great, you didn't even need a 2nd person if you dropped the anni in the right spot.
This also worked really well in a3, near Alkor. You'd stand on the side of that little water gap in the ground, closest to Alkor. The other person would stand on the furthest side from Alkor. You could click your item near the edge (just before or just after, forget specifically now that it's been 10-12 years) and then pick the item the other person dropped before they could turn around. Worst case? They'd just grab their item and leave. I saw this start getting more popular after the A2 palace scam was very common for anni scams.
