Speaking of "lucky" hacks: one of my guildies got hacked a few months ago. He was able to reset his password and regain control, and found that all of his characters except a midlevel mage had been deleted. But once he checked his inventory, hooo boy.Stacks and stacks of primordial saronite. Uncut epic gems of every color. Some 20-odd bikes, and a ton of BoE ICC epics. The hackers had obviosuly been using his character as a mule, and he had interrupted them before they sent off all of their goods.He did face a dilemma. Report the hack to Blizzard and restore his characters (and potentially lose the valuables), or keep the loot and have a zillion gold. Well. I guess he didn't much care for his deleted toons (mainly a level 80 death knight in heroic gear), so now he's gold-capped across two toons and has more cash than he knows what to do with. I get the impression that being rich isn't all that it's cracked up to be, since he seems pretty bored, but hey.
