The Hackers That Almost Broke WoW...

  • In the early days of World of Warcraft, from classic WoW up to Wrath of The Lich King, gold farmers/sellers were a huge deal, and a big part of the game. A lot of money was made from trading virtual items, however the methods they used to obtain it were not so good... However in todays legion WoW, it is no longer a thing. ▼ SUBSCRIBE for more quality content ▼ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYYa... ►The Microphone I use: http://amzn.to/2A6fvOl Outro: Music by Kevin MacLeod.

    I had stopped playing wow for the... I dunno, Nth time. I was contacted by a friend of mine asking me why I wasnt responding to her /w ingame. I was out with a friend that day, and I thought "well... guess someone hacked my account." I went home later and decided to see if that was actually the case (this was some time between Wotlk and Cata). I logged in and it turned out all my stuff was gone from my main, a minute later I got disconnected. I decided to go onto my bnet account and change my password, and I logged back in. Contacted blizzard, got all of my stuff back a few hours later, and a free month of wow because some idiot hacker redeemed a month-code subscription card onto my account and didn't even think about changing my password before I got to it myself. was a fun day.

    I got hacked in Cata. I didn't know because I didn't get on for a few days. Next time I logged in my account it got locked. I talked to Blizzard and ordered my authenticator right then. When I got into my toon I realized that I had locked the guy in the middle of a mining run in Twilight Highlands.

    Got hacked back in BC. Was gone for only a few days and returned to my character in Netherstorm with nothing but the armor on her, and a few hundred gold on hand but the bank was empty. They used my main to do quests for additional gold. Back then mounts and battleground badges were inventory items and it was just soul crushing to lose years of work in an instant. Had to mail Blizzard a massive list of everything I was missing. Even gave them the honest amount of gold I had at the time (under 2k). After a few hours waiting, they returned all my lost goods, and gave 3k bonus gold from the hacker lol.

    The way you explained it, it's not Hacking but actually Phishing. Which is entirely different.

    I was on crusade against bots on my PvE server once. I was Alliance, farming for...something, I don't remember anymore (probably a LW recipe or skinning blue dragonhide or something), and the only things that dropped it were blue dragonkin in some elven ruins in pre-Wrath Azshara. It took a whole afternoon to really understand that the three kill-stealing Ally bastards that were making my hunt impossible weren't being controlled by people. It was my first exposure to actual bots, I'd never even heard of them before, but I pieced it together by their behavior and refusal to react to my presence in any way.

    Who needs hackers to break wow when blizzard did that fairly well on their own.

    My char was hacked in WotLK. Rather than totally stripping my account , they tried to totally control it. They even had tried to get into my email account, so they could change the linked email address to one of their. Luckily one of my guild mates noticed I was on, but not responding. They found my char was just botting away, so they got a GM ASAP and locked my account out. When I finally tried logging in I got the message my account was blocked and to contact Blizzard.

    I miss Vanilla a lot. To me, after WOTLK, the game became less and less fun.

    i got a pretty "lucky" story..i was hacked one time too but it was i think wotlk times and the hacker used my account to farm gold and when a friend told me that my char in online i changed my password and email real quick and then logged in and i threw him out of my account right when he wanted to send all the gold to himself..i had 30k more gold then before so i got lucky and a hacker farmed me gold xD

    At the start of Legion, there was an endless stream of gold farming bots running in and out of the Firelands raid entrance. Thanks to those bots, I was able to farm up 500 bloody coins for the Ashhide Mushan mount really fast. I would just stand at the entrance and slaughter them. The thick pile of skeletons was beautiful.

    Yea vallina wow had gold farming hackers but if i recall Cata also had a lot of pvp hackers. In my personal experience where i was playing in Darkspear and note i am horde, the alliance had a hacker guild during that time. Pvp for me was at its peak during Cata and everywhere i went, it was Wpvp no matter the place and it was fun until some of us started to notice impossible kills or things being pulled off like getting two shotted sometimes even one shot which was not common. We mainly took notice when we would do arenas like 2s or 3s which is more regulated and during that time you where more likely to fight people from your server, sometimes 2-4times after requeing. It took awhile for blizz to really figure this out, but it wasn't until my guild and I and a few randoms went to wintergrasp and fought the alliance (the suppose hacking guild) and as we were about to win, we all got kicked out from our server. including some guildies who weren't even in the area and just questing. as we long back in, the alliance won and then we got a server notification about blizz looking into it. end story they all got perma banned and some of us got a few days back of free to play since that happened.

    "I had no gold left!" Picture of empty inventory shows 80 gold.
