Backserver crafting exploit
This is not my finding, and just about entirely copy pasted, and has already been reported on official Blizzard forums. Good luck with going at it, though. I'd probably expect a ban if you do, so shuffle whatever profit you make quickly.
Video of exploit in action
Warning: Bad music and in a non-english language
Appears to be fixed now, approach with variation in steps mentioned, feel free to drop any new information if you find a way to get this working again.
Here is how things flow.
A: person with resources
1.A gives resources to B
2.B crafts items using them.
3.B gives crafted items to A
4.B moves to the new save point or waypoint
5.A leaves the room (When A leaves the room, A loses all crafted items received from B, but gets all resources back as well. Therefore, A lose nothing and gains nothing)
6.The room automatically terminated (server detects anomally?)
7.At this point, server lost the track of B giving crafted items back to A (from step 3), thus B still has crafted items. Therefore, B freely gets crafted items. (Because, A gets back resources)
1.B crafts items using resources received from A.
2.A exits, and his inventory resets to the original state.
3.B still has crafted items
you have to be in a difficulty or area that person A has not been to yet. that way when you leave, the game resets and kicks all players.. this will not work if you are both in the same difficulty, it will just keep you in the game instead of kicking you. the best way is to have someone on a lv. 1 character do the stash trading of resources from like.. the end of act 1, that way when the creator leaves.. the lv. 1 is kicked out afterwards.

Pretty sure it's patched. We can't get kicked out anymore.
Why would I post this in elite when it's already been reported to Blizzard? Also, OwnedCore, I found out how to get every lazy leecher to come out of the woodworks.

Yeah, you can get all the leachers to come out of the woodwork by posting up other people's finds off of reddit.
Seems patched. Guess Blizz responded quickly to that official forum post.
Also, it looks like it worked for gold, so the chinese Gold Farmers with their 300mil stocks probably got a chance to buff them up to 3 bil.
I also clearly said that I didn't write this up and that it was copy pasted. But thank you for browsing reddit and/or knowing that putting quotes around phrases pulls up webpages with those phrases in google. You're super clever.

You guys post up things that other people find in an "elite" section where people pay money to gain access to? Do you guys find any exploits yourselves, or is all the information from other users and you guys charge a premium to discuss it?

That was a great waste of money, its patched.
There is more than plenty original content on OwnedCore, and when it's not, members tend to say that it isn't their find or work. I understand that this is also on Reddit, but not everyone on OwnedCore browses Reddit, and several people use OwnedCore as their only source of receiving gaming exploits, guides, etc. and there is no reason that content from other sites shouldn't be forwarded to OwnedCore, much like how Reddit heavily relies on users to submit things almost entirely from different sites.

So, you can contribute to work your way there, or you can donate to access them, and that choice is up to the user.
