Blizzard stops illegal orb sales
Eternal Orbs are an in-game currency in Diablo Immortal that can be obtained either through the Battle Pass or real-money purchases. The prices range from 1 euro for 60 pieces to 100 euros for 7,200 pieces. Ten legendary crests alone, with which you can get better loot faster, already cost. 1,600 orbs. With such prices, many players resort to the currency through third-party providers for one obtainable at a significantly lower price. This circumstance is already known for a long time.
