Blood Goblin Exploit Shut Down on PC

Blood Goblin Exploit Shut Down on PC  - MMORPG.com

Blizzard took to the Diablo 3 forums with the news that the exploit causing Blood Goblins to drop insane numbers of blood shards has been hotfixed in the PC version and that the ban hammer has swung mightily against those who took gratuitous advantage. The console versions, however, are not yet fixed, and the Blood Goblin has been disabled pending a permanent fix to the issue.

Blood shards are used to 'gamble' items from Kadala, along with the chance at legendaries, rares, or set items. The exploit came at the start of the new season and many players were concerned that the crazy number of shards dropped would give a significant advantage to those chasing world and server first achievements.

The hotfix notes can be read on the Diablo 3 forum.
