Quite a few reports of a nasty error that is affecting users trading on the Auction House.
The error looks like this:
“Failed to escrow funds. The player is locked. (317402)”.
One of the many complaints on the D3 forum was like this:
The problem is that the gold was also deducted without getting the materials.
The following error was displayed: “Failed to escrow funds. The player is locked. (317402)”.
The problematic orders were ORDERS #811901758, #811904342 and #812200536. They were all failed attempts of buying Exquisite Essences. I can’t remember the exact amount of gold deducted, but the total was above 22 millions gold (Order #811904342 was a large amount of Exquisite Essence: 15,000).
At the time of writing, this wasn’t resolved. So when doing transaction, definitely make them in small, incremental steps. Never buy 15,000 essences for 22 million! Buy them in a few batches (a thousand each?).
