WoW Classic players discovered an exploit of the layering system Blizzard uses in the game to distribute a server's population. Blizzard fixed the exploit and will take "appropriate punitive measures" for those who made use of it according to a post by the developer on the game's message boards Monday.

In WoW, Blizzard created multiple copies of the world, or layers, on each server. Each layer contains a number of players and helps the game run smoothly. Because of layering, two players on the same server can be on the same exact spot without seeing each other. However, if one player invites the other to a group, the invited player will join the layer of the one who sent the invite.

How this gets exploited is by constantly leaving and joining certain groups. This lets players kill a certain monster who has a chance to drop a rare item, leave a group, join another group in another layer and on the other layer, the monster will be available to kill once again without hardly any waiting. Some players were also able to use the exploit to make more than 100,000 gold, which is almost impossible to do within the short amount of time since the game's release.

Layering isnt supposed to work this way, and as a result, Blizzard has stepped in and vowed to deploy a worldwide bug fix by the next realm reset. As soon as possible, we will identify those who knowingly abused this bug in exploitative manner, community manager Kaivax wrote on the Blizzard forums. We will then take appropriate punitive measures. Its unclear exactly what will happen to the Reddit user and his guild, but it looks like a swift ban could be in the cards. Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can Buy WOW Gold Classic from rvgm.com at a reasonable price.
