Diablo Immortal has seen a cunning player use World of Warcraft gold to exploit the game’s pay-to-win system.

Diablo Immortal is a free-to-play entry within the long-running action role-playing series. Available to players on iOS and Android alike, Diablo Immortal was released on June 2 in a limited array of countries.

Now, a savvy World of Warcraft player has unearthed an exploit with his gold to dominate other players in the game.

World of Warcraft player uses “cash whales” to win on Diablo

Redditor daymeeuhn shed light on his clever method on the Diablo Immortal subreddit. The World of Warcraft player began by saying “I finished my project of using just over 600,000,000 gold in World of Warcraft on purchasing WoW Tokens for Blizzard Balance, to use in Diablo Immortal for upgrading my gems.”

“WoW Tokens can be purchased in WoW off the Auction House for gold, and can be turned in to $15 Blizzard Balance per purchase.”

They explained that they’d saved up plenty of loot cards from Blizzard events over the years, leaving them “sitting in a drawer collecting dust for ages.”

Diablo Immortal’s microtransaction continue to prove costly.

Once the player released he could cash them in on Diablo Immortal, they thought it “would be really funny to try and build a “whale” character in the game using WoW Gold as the primary funding source.”

“There’s no real point to this other than to get the laugh out of it,” added the Redditor. In total, daymeeuhn has used over 600 million gold to craft his “cash whale” in a bid to blast other players.

While the Redditor likes to use his “proverbial powerhouse that dunks on cash streamers like jtisallbusiness”, their amusing efforts are sadly unavailable to view on YouTube or streaming giant Twitch.

For now, we’ll just have to imagine the chaos they’re leaving in their wake.
