The Complete Guide To Bugged Diablo 2 Items

Introduction

Diablo 2 has seen a lot of bugged items throughout the 19 years of its existence but the vast majority of them came into existence on closed battle.net during a relatively short period of time. Specifically between 29th of June 2001 and 28th of October 2003. The former date marks the 1.08 patch and the latter the 1.10 patch. During this time period you had 08 uniques, Iths, Whites, Zod Bugged Eths, Mephisto Fused Uniques, Uploads/Imports, Hybrid Runewords, and a host of other nominally bugged D2 items. After their initial inception, all of these items were of course duped and the few that survived beyond the 1.10 patch and any subsequent purges were further duped leaving any perm ones vastly outnumbered by unperms.

In this article we will attempt to go through the whole lot of them and provide as accurate information as possible but please not that it is a work in progress and we would love to see your feedback in the comment section. Needless to say, all these bugged items are on non ladder mode so we will omit this information in the realm specification for each item.


“Legit” Pre Patch Items

These items were all theoretically possible to obtain through normal play at some point in time and, while not bugged or hacked in terms of stats, they were massively duped by many different people on many different occasions. It is even speculated that some of the original ones were imported from open battle.net and that they managed to stay under Blizzard’s radar thanks to their legitimate stats. Pretty much all in existence today are dupes but not all of them are unperm. The reason for this is that some were duped before Diablo 2 items were given unique id numbers in patch 1.10. Unfortunately, you can not tell the difference until it goes poof.


Classic Rares

Many great “pre 07 patch” classic D2 rares were duped and transferred to expansion with presently impossible stats such as 20fhr boots, 20fcr amulets, 15 all resistances / 50 specific resistance rings,  -40% lower requirements etc. Below are listed the most iconic ones of these.

Open Battle.net Imports / Uploads

Prior to April/May 2002 hackers were able to get players from open battle.net into bugged games on closed battle.net. The open character could come in to game, drop the item, and leave without detection. The exploit was sealed after Blizzard was tipped off but it was not until 6 months later in early 2003 that it came to Blizzard’s attention that open items had been transferred to closed battle.net. Subsequently most but not all of them were deleted. Most if not all of these items would have been transferred during v1.09.
